The Nordica Wild Belle is a great ski for the strong, intermediate to expert skier looking for all-mountain versatility. The Wild Belle is made with Nordica's Balsa Core CA which has a microlam construction that uses many small balsa wood stringers stacked up next to each other that give you stability and liveliness with an incredibly lightweight feeling. Balsa wood is used because of its very high strength to weight ratio, but also because of how renewable of a resource it is. The 88mm waist of the Wild Belle is very edgy when you need it to carve, but also powerful enough to motor through crud or variable snow conditions. Nordica's All-Mountain camRock has a rockered tip for vibration absorption and quick turning initiation. Camber underfoot provides the ski with stability and rebound,with a small amount of rocker in the tail for easy maneuvering. If you want a lightweight ski that will be lively and responsive, unleash your wild side with the Nordica Wild Belle.
