2018-2019 Head Nexo LYT 130

Blister reviews the Head Nexo LYT 130

The brand-new Head Nexo LYT 130 is the lightest alpine boot we’ve ever reviewed (and it’s lighter than a lot of touring boots we’ve reviewed). But that’s not the only thing that sets this boot apart from the competition. Check out our measured specs, fit notes, and initial impressions.

2020-2021 Nordica Promachine 130

Jonathan Ellsworth reviews the Nordica Promachine 130 for Blister

Nordica is entering the lighter weight alpine boot category for 18/19, and they claim their new Promachine line combines “race-boot performance” with “all-mountain comfort and versatility.” (Yeah, right. Right?) Check out our measured specs, fit notes, and initial impressions of the new Promachine 130.
