Nordica dominated certain categories of the ski test, and we salute the brand for making an affordable ski that rips alongside its higher-priced cousins. A layer of strategically cut titanium (Nordica calls this the “Hex Bridge”) laid over a poplar and beech wood core allows this ski to crush crud and stay stable without excessive weight. “Solid and quiet,” said Megroz. “Don’t be afraid to push it.”
