Nordica Patron (2013)
Official Selection 2013
Tester's Review

The Patron "bounded around the mountain with finesse," according to one tester. Built on the same platform as the Helldorado (Page 76) but without the two layers of metal, it requires much less muscle to push around but loses a bit of stability on hardpack. Lauded for its energy, playfulness, and ability to adapt in variable snow, the Patron is an ideal Western one-ski quiver.
