Nordica's big mountain flagship is all-blacked-out again! It's the 2014 season, so lets give a warm, "Welcome back!", to the Nordica Helldorado Skis.
What happens when Nordica takes one of their best skis, the Patron, pump it full of metal and completely murder-out the top sheet???... The Nordica Helldorado Happens.
The Nordica Helldorado is straight BEAST MODE! The Helldorado comes equipped with the same construction as the Nordica Patron. A full-woodcore, CamROCK, vertical sidewall ski with dimensions measuring 143-113-132. Nordica then adds two sheets of titanium and a straight matte black graphic making this ski look, feel and perform like an absolute beast. The metal gives the Helldorado legendary stability at high speeds and exceptional energy when coming out of a turn. The CamROCK, tip-and-tail rocker with camber underfoot, gives the ski plently of surfyness and allows the Helldorado to be quick edge-to-edge on groomed terrain. The camber underfoot provides a solid stable feel when the ski is on edge or on hardpack snow.
The Bottom Line: This ski is for the hard charger looking for supreme stability and no-speed-limit on groomed terrain, and a flawless surfy feel in softer snow conditions.
