Nordica Dobermann Spitfire TI FDT 2019

Reviewed by PROSKILAB

PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

The Doberman Spitfire TI FDT spits fire... Maybe a bit too much for this category where we're looking above all for accessible skis that beginners can handle.

The ski displays truly high-powered quality. Turn initiation, edge to edge, carving precision and stability are all very good. A "good carving ski", it's literally glued to the turn, even at high speed and doesn't mind being handled on edge.

Despite its many qualities, the Dobermann Spitfire TI FDT does not fit into the programme, as its too technical and demanding for beginners or false beginners. On the other hand, it's an excellent ski for riders who already master skid parallel turns and want to move on to carving or to improve their performance.

Review: Pros

  • Overall performance
  • Slicing arcs and carving
  • Grip and rebound
  • Overall pleasure

Review: Cons

  • Lacks accessibility
  • Skid turns less conclusive

Manufacturer's remarks

Since we take our pleasure seriously, the incredibly versatile DOBERMANN SPITFIRE TI has adopted the best technology to add to your enjoyment.
Combining a slalom tip with a GS frame, the Spitfire rides as fast lightning in the fall line and holds its very precise edge in every type of turn.
The skis are not just accessible, but also incisive and powerful.
The new ‘Recoil Power Plate’, exclusively developed with Marker, is inspired by the World Cup plate, the Marker Piston, enhancing energy transmission and making the skis more flexible.
Ride down once and you'll never look back!
