Got game? Give 'er with the Nordica GPX 130 and be rewarded with the kind of turn you envisioned without hindrance from the four-buckle linkage between you and your ski. It's a real 130-flex, and the cuff is slightly tall and slightly upright, so some manly muscle is required to engage it. But testers say that when you do, the ski shovel is all yours, and you go wherever, and do whatever, you want with it. "Solid, even power delivery with appreciable sensitivity—it doesn't kick your ass!" said Stewart. Testers agreed Nordica's GPX 130 a technical-skier's boot that loves to get off the groomed and rip some stuff up.
