It's game time.
After a morning of studying your big-mountain line from afar, you buckle down the Nordica Patron Pro Ski Boot, and head down to the lift. Sweat prickles your forehead beneath your helmet, but you're ready to slay your line. Thanks to the Patron Pro's 130 flex index, 98mm last, and pro freeride shell design, you're going to make mincemeat out of that line and give the freeskiing judges and competitors something to woot about.
- 130 flex index offers a stiff flex that's ideal for dropping pillow lines, slashing big-mountain turns, and landing switch after a mind-blowing maneuver in the air off of a natural feature
- High progression (progression is the degree to which the stiffness increases through the range of the flex pattern) offers solid support in landing and flexing beyond the normal range, which is critical when you land in the switch position
- Super-speedy rebound for better recovery while you stomp a big air
- 98mm last hugs your foot like a true performance-fit boot should
- Pro freeride shell design enables easy ankle flexion for maximum flexibility when adjusting to features, jumping, and buttering
- Three-piece PU shell construction for durability and easy entry and exit
- Freeride hinge (located low and forward) utilizes a unique cuff design which supplies the highest level of progression
- Full Shock Eraser features a dual-density boot board that offers cushioning under the foot to soak up impact from big landings and unwanted vibrations
- Pro fit adapting liner supplies a custom fit, efficient power transmission, and insulation
- Four micro-adjustable alloy ServoLock buckles furnish a solid, secure fit, while a solid power strap helps prevent shinbang issues
- Double canting enables you to dial in your stance
- Rubber heels lend traction when you bootpack, balance over rocky terrain, and walk to and from the lodge or car

THE boot for chargy, big mtn. freeriding
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Got in these early last season, and I don't see myself getting out of them any time soon. This boot is essentially a Dobermann 130 race boot, but with the anti-shock boot board, making it ideal for murking over chop on those high speed runouts and stomping those cliffs. It is a pretty narrow last (true 98mm), so if you have overly wide feet, you may want to look elsewhere. The toe box is also pretty low, but not as low as the old Jah Love model. Super responsive flex and the input from skier to ski is unmatched in this boot compared to any other freeride boot I've been in. The one issue I had with this boot was that the stock liner seemed to pack out quickly, but get a good custom foam or zip-fit in this bad boy and you have a freeriding weapon folks. All in all, bravo, Nordica!

Does anyone know if I could switch out...
Does anyone know if I could switch out this bootboard with my current Dobermann's?
yes Doberman footbeds are the same fit but these are better as they are rubber so not as cold as the Doberman.

They look cool, flex tough, and look tougher. They feel and sound very plasticy when you flex them; noisy. They are narrow and are tight on the outsides of your feet. They are good for people with really narrow and low/medium arches. Never skied them, but I am sure these rock - just not for me as they cut off circulation a bit due to my high arches.
I would recommend them though.
