Nordica’s Transfire series is made for the advancing intermediate to low-level expert cruiser. The effective sidecut ends farther back than it does in Nordica’s sportier Fire Arrow collection. This characteristic, in conjunction with a large, sidecut-free, straight section of the shovelï¿½Nordica calls this the “transfer zone”ï¿½promotes easy, undemanding turn initiation and a relaxed demeanor. Tip rocker promotes easy handling. A touch of tail rocker is intended to allow the ski to release easily from the turn just before turn transition. The women-specific Nordica Axana XCT is the entry-level model in Nordica’s easygoing Transfire series, designed for laid-back women skiers looking for comfort and safety.
