Nordica Hot Rod Top Fuel XBi (2008)

Nordica Hot Rod Top Fuel XBi (2008)

With a traditional sidewall construction and a binding-plate system that stretches out the balance point (or sweet spot), the power-hungry Top Fuel is the choice for high-speed arcing on groomed snow. Expect some "easy, breezy ripping," said tester Charlotte Moats.

Props

Bomber high-speed stability.

Gripes

Overpressure the edges and this damp ride will sink. Needs to be muscled into short-swing turns.

Tester's Take

"The Top Fuel lets you make minor mistakes and get back in control. They just feel right." —Mike Britt
