At 88 mm underfoot, the Nirvana is the second-widest model in Goode’s women’s collection. It’s designed to be a good everyday ski for soft conditions. Slight rocker in the tip is designed to improve flotation and make the ski more forgiving. The Nirvana has the same sidecut as the men’s Impact, but its turn radius (12.6 m) is much smaller due to shorter lengths, which means it should be an eager carver and especially suited for quick, lively turns. Construction: wood core with all-carbon-fiber torsion box. Goode made a radical change in its layups last year, going with wood, instead of foam, for all of its cores.
