Waist Width: 97
The Soul Rider is the skinniest ski in Nordica's Freeski Men's series, with a 134 mm tip, 97 mm waist, and 124 mm tail. This is a ski designed to perform equally well on hardpack and powder, while many others are intended for one type of snow over the other. It's even designed to get the job done in the park, designed as a true all mountain ski. Its Energy 2 Carbon construction features a full wood core with two sheets of carbon designed for a soft, light, and forgiving flex profile. Meanwhile, All Mountain Soul Rider camROCK technology lifts the tip and tail up and off the ground, designed for floatation and maneuverability. This ski is part of the Freeski Men's series, which focuses on skis intended for terrain outside of the groomers, whether it's the backcountry, trees, or wherever else gives you a thrill. These skis are intended to rip groomers when they need to, but their main purpose is to mow through powder and other various conditions elsewhere. The four models in the series have waists ranging from 97 - 113 mm and radii ranging from 14.5 - 21 m depending on length. Nordica, based in Giavera del Montello, Italy, was founded in 1939. Its U.S. headquarters are in West Lebanon, N.H.
