The Speedmachine's forward stance and progressive flex keep weekend skiers on their game. The cuff-built to Aggressor-stiff standards-encourages precise turn initiation, maximum edge grip, and easy energy transfer. gripes: Lacks the accuracy of the Aggressor and Top Fuel. props: Open box. Stuff in feet. Ski like hell. bootfitters' take: Thick liners, high-volume shell. Adjustable instep height. Consistent with the rest of Nordica's women's line, the SM 12 comes with extra-warm, super-soft liners, and women-specific footbeds. It's precise and responsive without the vise-grip clench of a race boot. GRIPES: Liner tends to pack out and get sloppy quickly. PROPS: Glovelike fit right out of the box. BOOTFITTERS' TAKE: Good for C-width intermediate to advanced skiers.
