The Nordica Firearrow F3 Skiing Boots are the combination high=tech and amazing performance. It’s also the easiest and simplest boot to get on and off. Perfect for all!Charlie Anders
The Nordica FireArrow F3 is an amazing boot in many aspects. Before going in detail about the FireArrows tech specs, let’s analyse the design: Nordica is known for transcending designs and in this particular case that’s exactly what happens. This boot is will certainly grab the attention of the your audience with it’s glossy red finish and matte black details.
When it comes to skiing boots, one of the main concerns for experienced buyers is how long you can ski before your toes turn into ice, literally. Well, when we tested the FireArrow F3 we wanted to make sure we would take this factor into great consideration.
The sun was shining, the snow was soft and the temperature was -10 degree Celsius (14 degree Fahrenheit). The perfect conditions for skiing were met and we tested the boots for a long period of 5 hours. We were pretty amazed by these boots performance taking in consideration that after skiing for so long our feet were not cold or even swollen. So, not only the FireArrow F3 will keep your feet warm they are also very comfortable.
Small Edit: During our 5 hour test we did unbuttoned the clips and sat for while, we were not skiing all the time! We realized this information would be important for our readers, but we assure you, we have tried many during our reviews boots before and even with longer periods of resting unbuttoned, the FireArrow really surpass a lot of its competitors.
Beautiful design, good construction quality.
Very warm under cold temperatures
Comfortable, fitted the foot perfectly.
Good rigidity/comfotability ratio.
Versatility and functionality.
We love everything about this boot!
The following information is also displayed in the Official Nordica site:
The F3 offers great performance combined with game improvement technology and is insanely easy to get on and off. A new shell design that makes the Fire Arrow F3 not only easy to get on and off but also makes controlling today’s wider skis a lot easier.
It’s just silly how fast your can get in and out of these boots.
45 Degree Closure
A 45 degree buckle provides maximum heel retention by locking the heel into the rear pocket of the boot while ensuring forefoot comfort and warmth. It also allows for super easy entry and exit of the boot no matter the temperature!
Energy 2 Titanium Laminate
Unlike traditional overlap boot shells that focus on fore and aft retention, Nordica’s FireArrow, Transfire and Ace collections use a shell design built to enhance the boot’s lateral precision. Increased lateral precision is key for better control of today’s newer, wider and more ambitious ski shapes.
Brand New Liner
This is what really makes the different and this is why these boots behave so well on very cold temperatures: New hand-stitched liners designed for improved comfort and performance with increased toe area box for enhanced circulation and warmth
Efficient Dynamic Technology Boot
Constructed of a carbon fiber frame wrapped in a lightweight polyurethane, the EDT boot board is secured to the boot shell with four pins. It eliminates torsional twisting and boot plastic deformation resulting in scientifically-proven improved efficiency and power transmission to create a more precise connection to the ski.
Easy and Fast Entry
A combined liner and shell design that eliminates the “throat” of the boot allows for easy entry no matter the conditions on the hill or in the lodge.
High Performance Progressive Flex
The stiffness of the boot progressively increases as the boot flexes deeper to amplify power transmission to the ski.
Thanks to adjustable High Performance Flex Blocks in our FireArrow boots skiers are able to mechanically tune the flex of their boot with a simple Allen wrench to get the desired stiffness for the type of skiing they are doing, or snow conditions they encounter on the hill.
High Performance Hinge
Hinge point is located high up on the shell and further back to allow for precise energy transmission and rebound.
