Pro It’s an intimidating name for an Aspiring Expert ski, and in some ways the 14.2 lives up to its billing. But testers found it to be a ski of many talents, with a performance envelope that’ll please experts and intermediates alike. As with the Mach 3, it’s an all-wood core, and Nordica gives it 2 mm more waist width this year. But unlike the Mach 3, the 14.2 eschews metal and employs a less demanding cap construction. At the high end of its performance range, that lightens the load for lightning-quick short turns. But for intermediates, it introduces enough forgiveness and slow-speed manageability to be reasonably, if not eminently, forgiving. "Edge control is superb—and completely nonthreatening," said Morgan. Con Not the best choice for lighter or less athletic intermediates.
