Nordica's Hell & Back collection is a group of skis designed for modern all-mountain skiers whose daily adventures may include carving groomers and skiing glades inbounds and a few back- or sidecountry skin laps. Except for the Avenger and First Belle, these skis all feature light and stiff "i-core" wood cores and one of two Nordica rocker/camber, or "camrock," blends: either "early rise" or "high rise." The former blend is for general conditions while the latter is primarily for powder. Nordica's Hell's Belles is essentially a women's version of the unisex Steadfast. At 90 in the waist, it's designed to float in shallow powder and carve easily on groomers. It utilizes Nordica's "early rise" rocker blend.
