The groomer-dicing Fire Arrow 84 Pro shares the same width, sidecut and edgy full-sidewall construction as the top-of-the-line 84 EDT, but it's considerably less expensive because it lacks the carbon-fiber EDT torsion-stability structure and is metal-free. That will make it lighter, quicker, livelier in performance, and a shade less precise and thus more manageable at moderate speeds. Nordica builds its three-model Progressive Front collection (Fire Arrow 84 EDT, Fire Arrow 84 Pro, and Cinnamon Girl) for speed-loving piste technicians in search of maximum precision and edgy power. All are full-sidewall laminate constructions with carve-ready sidecuts, grippy traditional camber, and groomer-optimized waist widths (80 and 84 mm for the men's models; 72 mm on the women's Cinnamon Girl). Nordica's Rapid Race tip borrows from its World Cup skis, with a sharp, extended sidecut in the tip for instantaneous hookup. That's tempered by a touch of tip-rocker for line-adjusting drift when you want it (racers call it "stivot"). All models have full wood cores and fast, high-density bases. All are sold with bindings.
