Nordica Olympia Victory XBS (2008)
Every so often a ski exhibits a quality so extraordinary that every tester notes it. Such is the case with the Victory, unanimously praised for being smooth. It plows through chop like a luxury ocean liner, yet a relatively narrow waist keeps it spry. Rebound? More than inexperienced skiers can handle. The X Balance binding distributes power to offset women’s small feet and mass, putting the sweet spot wherever you land. "A powerhouse, looking to charge the mountain," said Lewis.
Strong skiers up for a powerful ride.
The lightweight or timid.
