They say

The brand new NRGy uses a lightweight core with a torsion bridge construction to give high performance, while still being very light to carry and ride.

We say

As expected, this was an exceptionally easy ski to use. It’s effortless to steer into the turn with the rockered nose taking a leading role in how the ski feels. That easy, pivoty character makes the NRGy a good choice in chopped up, cruddy conditions away from the piste where it is always able to make quick adjustments in direction and control speed with minimal physical effort. On the groomed runs it works surprisingly well in long turns, with high levels of grip at high speeds. In short turns the lightweight and easy pivoting makes it quick to change direction, but it needs a beefier construction to give high edge grip. Overall, this is a brilliant new addition to the Nordica range.

Tester Comments

Chris Taine
Perfect blend of agility and power. Punchy and playful, they’ll take everything on the mountain.
James Allen
Good all round light ski, great edge grip in all conditions, nice and floaty in the powder.
