Nordica Hot Rod Hellcat (2008)
Nordica makes bigger skis, but none more versatile. With a 90-mm waist, the new Hellcat is eminently powder-ready. But it’s also one of the most enjoyable rides on hard-pack, where it carves with enthusiasm. Its quickness is an attribute of a binding interface that’s integrated into the core of the ski. No ski scored more consistently across all criteria, a testament to its versatility. "Snappy, quick and lively," said Howard.
Those who expect big powder will be the exception, not the rule.
Inattentive pilots. It requires guidance.
