Flex: 130 Carbon/130/120/110/100/90
Model Availability: 130 Carbon/130/120/110/100/90
The name Speedmachine has been plucked from the past, but every significant feature of this series is brand, spanking new. Nordica’s entry into the heat-moldable shell market comes with a twist: an infrared lamp applies internal heat to a relatively small zone, then a suction cup is applied to expand the shell just in that area. The Custom Cork liner is separately oven-heated to make the cork compound in the heel and ankle malleable enough to move around the skier’s foot when he puts the heated shells and liners back on.
It bears noting that the entire Speedmachine family, from 130 flex to 90, uses the infrared customizable shell. Other across-the-line features include Primaloft® insulation for superior heat retention, and replaceable heel and toe pads that can be upgraded to a fully rockered walking sole.
