New Nordica Dobermann Boot for 2014?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Ok, I hear that Nordica is coming out with a new Dobermann* boot. Apparently, it's more back to the original version with some tweaks?

Right now, there's almost no info on it.

Anyone know more than what's in this video?

 

From the video, we learn.

93mm last

2 versions 130 and 150 flex.

Matte black plastic

"Basically the same lower shell". (as what the original?) Has lines on it for assistance in grinding out the inside.

More reinforcement in the bottom frame of lower shell than the boot years ago. (the lower shell is aka the "clog")

Toe/heel lugs need to be milled to DIN spec like a plug boot

The cuff height is higher than the original. (def a good thing)

 

It says EDT on it. Does it have the newer carbon EDT frame screwed in from the bottom? As opposed to the Aluminum EDT frame that gave people frost bite of the last "Doberman" EDT 130 boot. Or is it just a name plastered on it?

 

EDT = Efficient Dynamic Technology

(Nordica is ridiculous. They use "Dobermann" * for many products, like all the race skis, and they use "EDT" all over the place too.  This makes the words, especially EDT, meaningless. Once upon a time...."Dobermann" meant a ski boot if it wasn't a dog.)

 

* : More absurdity as Nordica can't decide how to spell "Dobermann" or is it "Doberman"? On the website and the products, they use two 'n', on the video below, they use one 'n'. Perhaps this is just EDT applied to the name.

This was the "brand new" Doberman EDT 130 of 2010 if you've forgotten:

It has the carbon EDT screwed in from the bottom. Looks very much like the older Dobie from before the Aggressor. I'll be in a pair next year for sure.

I've skied Dobs since 2003, 2 pairs in that time period. About to replace my pair from 2008 and was going to go with the Langes... maybe not after all...

I will be buying this boot for sure.  I can't take the refrigerator-like effect on my feet that my 2010 boot provides anymore!

yeah, the EDT was a really smart idea.  take what was one of the coldest plug boots out there and screw an aluminium plate under your foot just to amplify the effect......biggrin.gif

 

 

 

Going back to pretty much the original design is what I understand the WC boys have been on all along...

It just so happens that I added some Nordica product pages the past couple days, including the Doberman series boots.  Check out some of the tags I added to the side of this page.

Anyone in this yet or have comments after seeing them?

 

This is the 130 plug from trek's post in the product section.
