PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

In our selection of the best skis currently on the market, Nordica’s Dobermann SLR Evo rates high for its highly athletic qualities. It's a true slalom ski, extremely incisive and able to kick back a lot of energy at the end of a turn. Well handled, you can link turns at devilish speed... as long as you’re careful to dose the pressure, otherwise you’ll find yourself coming a cropper from the powerful momentum. This very stiff ski, with good flex distribution, really delivers, planting itself naturally in the turn without ever losing grip, even on packed snow. A real treat. An excellent choice for good to expert riders (with strong thighs!) who love very energetic skis that kick back a lot of energy. Less athletic riders will probably prefer the SLX Fusion, Hero Elite ST ti or the Speedzone 16 Ti.

Review: Pros

  • Outstanding performance
  • Fast turn initiation
  • Powerful momentum
  • Exceptional grip, can manage wide-angled turns
  • Incredibly efficient in short turns
  • Behaves very well in long turns
  • Good overall turn performance

Review: Cons

  • A very athletic ski, technically and physically demanding
  • The powerful rebound means you need to dose pressure carefully

Manufacturer's remarks

The World Cup superstars, Felix Neureuther, Dominik Paris and Fritz Dopfer helped our R&D team to develop this Dobermann line and retain its high level of performance. The carbon race bridge technology is a carbon insert that has been added around the tip and tail to increase the ski’s torsion and power. The result is effortless entry, fast and fluid transition, enhanced torsion resistance, precision and instant edge grip.
