Nordica Olympia Speed XBS (2008)

Nordica Olympia Speed XBS (2008)

Speed junkies and ex-racers will love this ski’s desire to charge. Lightning-fast edge changes earned this ripper a gold medal in overall responsiveness for the category.

Props

It has a lot of torsion but isn’t overpowering; gives you the confidence to hang ’em way out there without the fear of skidding out.

Gripes

The rigid tip doesn’t like short turns.

Tester's Take
