Nordica Hot Rod Afterburner (2009)

Nordica Hot Rod Afterburner (2009)

Though this is the fattest ski in the category, testers were surprised by the Afterburner's superior edge hold on hardpack. Off-piste, its massive shovel blasts through chunder.

Props

The wider platform translates to greater stability and a big sweet spot.

Gripes

The stiff flex makes it less forgiving than others.
