They say

As balanced as it is beautiful, the Santa Ana 93 is at home anywhere on the mountain. With the narrowest profile in the collection, it loves making fluid turns on the groomers-yet it can still make you smile on a powder day.

We say

The Nordica is a powerful ski which gives out really high levels of performance on the piste, it has high levels of grip and is great fun for fast, big turns on hardpack. This strong, solid character then moves on well into more chopped up off piste conditions, for this type of terrain and snow it feels really comfortable blasting out big turns with ease. It’s a ski that definitely feels at its best in big arcs, it has quite a stiff flex and is confidence inspiring as speed builds. That stiffer flex with a relatively big radius makes it less agile and easy to use in shorter turns.
