Looking for a high performance ski boot, introducing the Nordica NRGY Pro 1 for the 2014/2015 season. This boot is designed to conquer the mountain and drive through turns with ease. The NRGy Pro 1 has a Flex index of 130, which is surprisingly even and feels natural.
I tested the Nordica nrgy boots on Vail Mountain and wanted to share my results of my nordica nrgy pro 1 test below :
Nordica NRGY Pro 1 Review
The coolest feature of the Nordica NRGy Pro 1 Ski Boot line is the custom cork ankle pockets. Custom insoles have been using cork Footbeds for years, props to Nordica for stepping it up and adding this technology to ski boot liners. By using cork in the ankle pocket it allows the liner to be Heat-Moldable. This makes the liner impressionable in the Ankle Pockets, which is great for people that have boney ankles or have had past injuries as well as just to offer a great fit.
Cork can be heated and molded multiple times, so this boot can be re-adjusted and reshaped throughout the life of the ski boot.
Another great reason to use cork in the NRGy Ski Boot Line is, cork does not compress when force is applied, this allows for better power transfer.
High traction canted sole parts can be purchased separately – Nordica is able to offer a quick canting solution of plus or minus 1 degree for your boots, as well as easy to adjust cant on the boot, to adjust cuff alignment.

Nordica also offers a Flex of 120 in the NRGy Pro 2 and a Flex of 110 in the NRGy Pro 3. Nordica uses BBF boot fitter design, this utilizes screwed parts to make custom boot fitting easy and quick to adjust. Our nordica nrgy pro 2 review is in the works, either one of these boots is a solid investment in the life of your ski carrer as the entire NRGy line of ski boots comes with a generous 2 year warranty.
They also make womens version of the nordica nrgy pro called the Belle, it is the same boot just made for the Ladies. So now you can be matching on and off the slopes 🙂
If you have a wider foot, you will want to look at Nordica’s NXT ski boot line. This is designed on a 102mm Last for a wider Forefoot. The NXT Ski Boot does not use Cork, but does offer a Heat Moldable Liner.
Another solid bet is the brands nordica nrgy 5 comfortable go anywhere do anything sort of ski boot. And from time to time you can find really smoking deals on the nordica nrgy pro 3 so be sure to shop around. We should have the nordica nrgy pro 3 test up soon.
