The Nordica Navigator 85 is an excellent choice for the intermediate to advanced level skier who will spend most of their time on the frontside of the mountain and venture into the ungroomed terrain from time to time. Nordica's All-Mountain camRock Rocker Profile allows you easy turn entry and exit and some floatation when you head into the deeper snow. The I-Core Torsion Bridge Ti Construction adds more power and edge hold without adding too much extra weight to have you fatigue too quickly before last chair. A Blunt Nose Tip Shape deflects negative vibrations caused from crud along with improved turn initiation. A Squared Off Tail gives you extra energy as you exit a turn and more responsiveness. If you want a ski that will deliver the confidence for you to start attempting more challenging terrain, the Nordica Navigator 85 is the ski for you.
