Nordica Olympia Speed (2007)

Nordica Olympia Speed (2007)

Pro This women-specific version of the Mach 3 shares a similarly speed-greedy mindset, but two differences give it elements of forgiveness. One: The XBS interface, which distributes fore-aft pressure evenly, isn’t integrated, so it’s less precise. Two: The metal is replaced with strong, lightweight carbon weave, which explains the category-leading Rebound Energy scores. And what it gives up in edge-grip on the hardest snow it makes up for with agility and a greater willingness to venture off the corduroy. All in all, it’s a thrilling blend of talents. Testers warn that it doesn’t suffer neophytes gladly, but if you know how to put a ski on edge and apply pressure, it’ll apply a grin to your face. "A very versatile ski," said MacConnell. "Energetic yet balanced." Con Speed lovers might want more edge-grip on icy snow.
