Nordica is known for making no-nonsense skis, but where the brand gets really serious is when it comes to high-performance carvers. With a slalom-specific tip paired with GS waist and tail dimensions, this ski allows for a variety of different radius turns. The carbon race bridge inserts in the tip and tail provide seamless transitions between turns and stability on edge. But, as testers noticed, only experts need apply. 

Strengths: Stability at Speed, Quickness

Weakness: Versatility
