Strider Pro 130 DYN Ski Boot
Slip your feet into the Nordica Strider Pro 130 DYN Ski Boot if you are looking to skip the resort lines and find some fresh lines of your own. Equipped with tech fittings, Michelin Rubber Gripwalk soles, and Feather Lock Hike/Ski Mechanism this beefy boot will get you where you need to go, and get you down from there. The tech fittings combined with Gripwalk soles allow you to use either pin tech bindings or AT frame bindings depending on your preference, while the Feather Lock system provides 46 degrees of total range for a comfortable and natural walking motion on the skin track or rocky ridges.
Once you are staring down a line filled up with fresh powder, simply flip the Feather lock mechanism and trust the burly 130 flex to let you ski at your hard-charging best. Working with the 130 flex, Triax Cuff technology creates a stiff and responsive ride that effectively transfers energy to the edges of your skis for confident edging all while weighing less than traditional PU shells.
To ensure that your feet are happy, and you are in total control, the Strider Pro 130 DYN Ski Boot features a customize liner and outer shell. The Laced 3D Light Cork Liner is thermo-moldable for a perfect fit and comes with a lace that lets you tighten up the fit and add a little stiffness for downhill performance. To further benefit your feet the hard plastic shell can also mold to your foot with infrared technology that prevents plastic shrinkage and creates a high performance customized fit.

- Q & A
Walking mech broke after 10 days
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Pro: These are light boots and a good compromise between stiffness and weight.
Cons: Boot failed after 10 days of use in the backcountry, i am now more than 3 weeks without a touring boot
After 10 days of use, i went on a ski tour - the pin of the walking mechanism fell out and the aluminum rod slid out - the boot is now unfunctional and my tour / holiday ruined as i could not skitour any more
Back in the USA I contacted Nordica to get the mechanism repaired; turns out that my local shop as well as other shops in the area are unable to repair the boot,
A specific tool is required. I was left with the option to get new boots ( still the same problematic walking mechanism ) - and i have to go through the full fitting process again - which is far from ideal as fitting new ski boots is a very painful process.
i give this boot 1 star as it failed during normal use, plus i ended up not having a touring boot for more than 3 weeks. Their rep mentioned that other customers had he same issue with this boot, and itâs a known issue - so i recommend to wait until they reengineered the walking mechanism. Also i hope that Nordica will step up their product quality assurance so this does not happen to other future boots/customers
Good for a wide foot
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Solid boot that performs like an alpine boot.
