This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.


  • As compared to men's liners, women-specific liners feature extra padding in the tongue, more insulation throughout and a contoured top edge designed to fit women's calves
  • Dual-density plastic maximizes ease of entry regardless of temperature; even if you have high insteps, getting your foot in the boot is hassle free
  • Shock-absorbent technology of the Hot Rod 80 X boots help you push your limits and hone your skills while maintaining comfort
  • Additional padding in the tongue and cuff absorbs shock and damps vibrations, making your ride smooth and easy
  • Quilted liners provide a personalized fit when custom molded; the liners of the Hot Rod 80 XW include additional, custom-moldable padding to ensure a precision fit
  • Shock-absorbent toe boxes pad the front of your feet, reducing painful toe bang
  • Anatomically shaped footbeds with contoured arches and heel cups optimize foot position and provide responsive performance
  • Offering a comfortable fit from your instep to your calf, 4 microadjustable buckles precisely dial in the pressure
  • Top buckles make it easy to engage and close the top portion of the boot: a sliding cam shifts the point of leverage while closing the buckle, reducing effort
  • 45mm cuff strap acts as a fifth buckle, allowing you to set the firmness around the upper ankle to favor comfort or performance
  • If pressure becomes too great along the back of the calf, simply adjust the shock-absorbent rear spoiler to fine-tune your comfort
  • Single canting adjustment on lateral side of boot personalizes fit
  • Flex adjustment on spine decreases flex index by 10 if desired
  • With a flex index of 70 - 80, the Nordica Hot Rod XW ski boots provide medium resistance against a forward lean, appropriate for most female intermediate skiers
