Nordica Fire Arrow 74 EDT XBI CT (2012)
Like it's less-aggressive brother-the Fire Arrow 74 XBI-this new ski is built for frontside performance. To step up its game, Nordica's EDT system adds a carbon fiber plate just in front of the binding to prevent the ski from twisting when it's put on edge. That should transfer energy better making the ski more stable when ripping turns. Full traditional camber and its 74 mm waist means it wants to stay solely on groomers.
