Nordica's Transfire series is made for novice and advancing intermediate skiers. The effective sidecut ends farther back than it does in Nordica's sportier Fire Arrow collection. This characteristic, in conjunction with a large, sidecut-free, straight section of the shovel Nordica calls this the "transfer zone" promotes easy, undemanding turn initiation and a relaxed demeanor. Tip rocker promotes easy handling. A touch of tail rocker is intended to allow the ski to release easily from the turn just before turn transition. The Nordica Transfire 78 Ca EVO CT differs from the Nordica Transfire 78 Ti EVO CT in that carbon, rather than titanium, layers are used in construction, for a lighter and less damp feel.
