Nordica Transfire R1 W (2013)
Testers liked how this new three-piece cabrio design allowed the foot to slide in easily with a tug on the liner tongue loop, and how the middle buckle, mounted at 45 degrees, pulled the heel back into the pocket where it belonged. Lateral quickness and edge power are tops in the category. And the slightly longer flex travel, which starts from a relaxed and tall position, provides smooth pressure control. "Secured the heel better than many others. Good snow feel, quick to edge." Notes: Lower upper cuff hinge location increases dampening and margin for error and 45-degree middle buckle enhances heel hold. The Adjustable Cuff Profile allows for increased calf room and dual cuff adjustment helps dial lateral stance balance.
