Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Nordica New Rear Entry Boot

 Poster: A snowHead

https://www.inthesnow.com/gear/nordica-hf-ski-boot-2021-preview/

Have just seen this. Used to have the old Salomon SX70 rear entry boots which I absolutely loved but sadly this type of boot ceased being manufactured years ago

This seems like the modern version, would be interested if anyone has purchased these and there thoughts on the performance, comfort etc

@gazza330, as a boot fitter i have always said there is space in the market for a boot like this to return, we had a few pairs early december last year and have more stock now, so far about 7 or 8 pairs sold so whilst not for everyone this boot has a place, the target is older skiers who struggle with clipping up a boot (or don't want to) those who want to slide around with the grand children without a high performance fit, it isnt going to win you a world cup race, but that is not the point of this project. For us it is also usable for the skier with very limited flexion who has never had comfort (as we can vary the forward lean and fill the gaps in the front)

as for how it skis, surprisingly well, the liner is superb, same quality as used on their top end pro machine/ speed machine boots, it is a generous 102mm last, so definitely not for the skinny feet out there, had your boot been anb SX71 or maybe 91/92 then this is maybe not got as many "features" but it is a world above the old SX70 and with modern materials and comfort, we think it is a winner for a certain groupo of people

@CEM many thanks for that, good to know that professionals believe these boots meet their target market of which I am certainly one

I was also considering the Atomic Savor 80 / 100 boots, do you have any thoughts on these?

Also, please advise if you stock either make with likely prices and your fittings procedure

I think it’s quite telling that Concept in Chamonix, who target the upper end in performance kit, and a definite flavour of ski touring, will be carrying them this year.

CEM said above that he stocks the Nordica HF and his prices/fitting info are fully detailed on his website. The Atomic version isn't shown so it probably doesn't offer anything in terms of fit/performance/price over the Nordica otherwise he'd stock it as well.

The Atomic version arrived on the scene last season and I was reliably informed it's aimed more at the beginner/rental market. However this new Nordica model seems to be a world above that.

Nothing will ever replace nor surpass the Salomon SX92 Equipe. The definitive rear entry super-boot, but late 1980's/1990's technology. Actually the SX90 Equipe was a stiffer boot, but not as sophisticated. And TBH, I've had better boots other than rear entry since.
