Nordica Hot Rod Jet Fuel XBS (2008)

Nordica Hot Rod Jet Fuel XBS (2008)

"Confidence-inspiring," said one tester. "Balanced," said another. The Jet Fuel impressed with its ability to carve high-angle turns through varied snow surfaces without chattering or bucking the skier.

Props

Get ’em up to speed and you can give ’er all you’ve got.

Gripes

A common complaint: The plate-binding system and metal laminate construction made it feel heavy underfoot. Tough to manage at low speeds. "Sometimes penetrates the snowpack too much," said one tester.

Tester's Take

"The Jet Fuel slingshots you into long- and medium-radius turns." —Charlotte Moats
