Nordica dom­i­nated cer­tain cat­e­gories of the ski test, and we salute the brand for mak­ing an af­ford­able ski that rips along­side its higher-priced cousins. A layer of strate­gi­cally cut ti­ta­nium (Nordica calls this the “Hex Bridge”) laid over a po­plar and beech wood core al­lows this ski to crush crud and stay sta­ble with­out ex­ces­sive weight. “Solid and quiet,” said Me­groz. “Don’t be afraid to push it.”
