The Nordica Navigator 80 is a progressive ski for the solid intermediate skier who envisions themselves starting to ski on ungroomed terrain while spending the majority of their time on the groomers. A Blunt Nose Tip Shape dives into a turn precisely as well as absorbing negative vibrations caused by bumps and crud. A Squared Off Tail Shape gives you a strong grip on the snow as you exit a turn. Nordica's I-Core Torsion Bridge Ti Construction has a Beech and Poplar Wood Core and a Titanal Hex Bridge that improves your edge grip and stability, while keeping the weight to a minimum. An All-Mountain camRock Rocker Profile allows you smooth turn initiation and floatation if you get some fresh snow. If you are looking to have a smooth ride, even when conditions get tricky, the Nordica Navigator 85 makes a great choice.
