2018 Nordica Dobermann SLR EVO review

Slalom

BEST SKI

BEST SKI

Best ski 2018

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... Read on

2018 Nordica Enforcer 100 review

All Mountain 50/50

AWARD

AWARD

Best Accessibility/Enjoyment!

Nordica’s Enforcer 100 was tested last year in an All Mountain 30/70 category where it brilliantly scored a "Best Ski" distinction. Tested this year in a more versatile category, the "50/50", it remains a benchmark for the market and retains an excellent position in this review. Off-piste, the ski is easy to use, remarkable, docile, easy to handle, with great float in powder and happy in crud. It's extremely versatile,... Read on

2018 Nordica Astral 84 review

Women's All Mountain 70/30

AWARD

AWARD

Best Accessibility!

Performing a little less well than the Stormrider 85, but just as enjoyable, the Astral from Nordica scored well for its extreme user-friendliness and exceptional fun on the piste. You’re immediately on top of it and need very little time to adapt. Simple to use, not to say intuitive, the ski steers at a touch with very little technical or physical skill. Above all, the Astral is a very playful ski, which enters turns... Read on

2018 Nordica Dobermann GSR EVO review

Giant slalom

The Dobermann GSR Evo from Nordica gives and asks for more! The ski, which is relatively flexible at the tip and stiff at the tail, needs a little time to adapt. It’s a ski with character that kicks back a lot of energy so you need to learn to master it. But once you’ve got the hang of it, it’s sheer joy. The Dobermann GSR Evo is a real Giant ski which performs well in all conditions. The ski is smooth in short turns and has a certain fluidity on soft snow, making it very versatile. It will definitely please good to excellent riders looking for... Read on

2018 Nordica GT 80 Ti review

Top-of-the-range men's cruisers

Nordica's GT 80 Ti really deserves its name. The ski scores high for its excellent sports qualities, especially for carving/slideslips, but unfortunately lacks the versatility needed to get to the top of this category where we’re looking, above all, for consistency. It's well behaved overall with great stability, including at high speed and on hard pack, with solid pressure for big looping curves. Turn performance is excellent and exiting turns is a doddle, with great rebound. On the other hand, the ski is less happy in short turns where it requires... Read on

2018 Nordica Sentra SL7 Ti EVO review

Top-of-the-range women's cruisers

Tested a bit short in this category (156cm for 165cm requested), the Sentra SL7 Ti Evo is an excellent touring ski, but unfortunately is not versatile/nimble enough to do well in this Top-of-the-Range Female category. The ski is amazingly simple to use, consistent in skid turns, and rotation is a piece of cake. On the other hand, it’s a lot more challenging when we step up the pace: it loses its stability and pressure when you increase the speed and doesn’t particularly enjoy carving. We recommend this ski for good riders looking for facility... Read on
