The narrowest ski in Nordica’s new NRGy series, the reasonably priced NRGy 80 is built for agile on-piste rip- ping. But testers found it to be the second most forgiving ski in the Groomed Snow category, thanks mostly to its lightweight con- struction. There’s metal in it, for dampness and edge bite, but not the usual two full sheets, so it’s never unwieldy or exhausting. Kevin Luby: “Quick, light, bouncy between turns. Great in bumps.”
