Advanced+ level all-mountain
skier Heyman's rating of this ski:
Considering his skiers profile:
"A solid backside all-mountain ski is as strong on-piste as it is off-piste. It is made to perform well everywhere within the resort bounderies. Stiff enough to remain stable at top speed, flexible enough for comfort and floatation in powder snow."
My favourite backside
1. Atomic Vantage 90 CTI
2. Armada ARVti
3. Nordica NRGy 100
To all my reviews
Perfectly balanced all-mountain ski
The Nordica NRGy 100 is quite light considering the width of a 100mm underfoot. That makes the ski much faster switching edge to edge than you would expect. Lightweight skis tend to lack torsional stiffness, but Nordica has managed to tackle that problem by what they call the torsion bridge. Basically what Nordica has done, is remove geometrical shapes from the titanal plate. These shapes are visible which adds a new and industrial appearance to the NRGy line.
Not too flexible, not too stiff
The versatility of the Nordica NRGy 100 is infinite. When I tested the skis, I expected them to perform well in deep and in chopped-up snow. Which they did. What I hadn't expected was their performance on piste. I was perplexed. How can a ski that is 100mm wide underfoot, switch so fast from edge to edge? How is it possible that this ski remains stable and in control when you thunder down a steep slope in maximum overdrive? How can a ski this stable be flexible enough to change its radius during a carve turn and turn ever tighter as you apply more power? Just amazing! This ski is able to bring a smile to your face where ever you find yourself on the mountain in whatever circumstances.
Nordica about the NRGy 100
"The NRGy 100 is the most modern and versatile all mountain ski on the slopes. With a lightweight i-core Ti with torsion bridge construction and all-mountain camROCK, it excels on hardpack groomers, bumps, crud, trees, or pow. This 100mm waisted ski will give you confidence and performance wherever you take it.", says Nordica. Manufacturers tend to exaggerate about their skis performance, but in this case Nordica is absolutely right.
