Pro The world probably doesn’t need another ski that makes skiing faster easier. But the Speedmachine Mach 3 Power unapologetically does just that. A ski this solid—this sweet and clean on edge—can’t wait to get you in trouble with the ski patrol. Like most Nordica high-performance models, it features the forgiving XBS binding interface. The way it pressures the ski evenly fore and aft (even if you don’t) plays a key role in a ski built for high-speed arcs. Meanwhile, the pronounced heft of its metal-reinforced construction lends a pleasing stability and calm. On this model, the interface is integrated into the construction of the ski, tightening the skier’s connection to the edge. "You can’t make it fail," said Campbell. "It’s a hot ski for anyone with high expectations." Con Too precise for playful exploration.
