Here is a racing beast from Madshus! The Super Nano is without a doubt one of the best performing skating boots on the market! With its carbon design and incredible lateral rigidity, it offers total control of the ski and facilitates the gliding phases. The boots were very popular at the recent games and are used by the top three female skiers in the overall World Cup cross-country skiing ranking.
What are the features of the Madshus Super Nano Skate cross country ski boot?
Like its high-end skating counterparts, it is designed with an integral carbon frame that runs from the toe to the heel. This one-piece carbon moulding offers an impressive control efficiency of the ski and eliminates any risk of energy loss during thrust. The collar is riveted directly to the frame to maintain maximum lateral rigidity, which allows the skier to avoid lateral imbalances and to remain well in line during each phase of skiing. As far as the fit is concerned, you should be very careful because this model has a small fit, so we advise you to opt for a size above your usual size. This Super Nano Race Fit liner is very close to the foot in order to guarantee the best possible sensations and an optimal support transfer. Madshus is the only brand to offer a Softshell membrane on the lace guard, which insulates the foot from cold air and moisture. Another interesting concept, this lace guard is designed without seams in order to avoid water infiltration in the boot, the Norwegian brand has opted instead for heat welding on the contours and at the level of the central zipper. As for the fit of the liner, Madshus stayed with a classic lacing system with a full foot wrapping concept. We had the chance to test the model for a long time, and it is a real joy in terms of feeling and guiding the ski, the boot leaves no room for approximation and immediately puts the foot in the axis to find the most efficient gliding phase possible. It is also one of the two best quality-price ratios on the market in this range of high-performance boots.
Who is the Madshus Super Nano Skate cross country ski boot for?
With such a high level of performance, the boot is best suited to regular, sporty skiers. Its close-to-the-foot fit is very effective in guiding the ski, and as mentioned above, for a minimum of comfort, it is best to choose a size larger than your normal shoe size. On the other hand, this boot with a full carbon frame is more suitable for skiers with a slightly pronounced foot arch, as it can constrain this area for feet that are a little sagging. Beyond these details, the boot is a real joy, it provides everything you could wish for in a skating boot with an omnipresent lateral rigidity and a maximum of frontal flexibility at the neck level.
