Nordica Patron (2013)

Nordica Patron (2013)
Gold Medal Gear

Tester's Review

The returning Patron is No. 2 in the category again this year, second only to its evil twin, the Helldorado. They're identical in shape and rocker profile, but the Patron is metal-free, so it's noticeably lighter and livelier, No. 1 in both Quickness and Forgiveness in a category of sometimes lumbering giants. Meanwhile, the low-profile tip gives it quiet confidence at speed, even in crud. Light-touch experts especially will approve. "Its quickness makes you forget how big it is in tight spots."
