Read the Review Transcript: Hi this is Hans. I just came off the Nordica Hell and Back. This ski is a full side wall construction. Its got 98 underneather the foot. If you kind of gave this ski a little bit of a surfy feel. It skis incredible. Real smooth. Can't push it way too hard on the hard packed because it will wash out a little a bit because the rocker and the way the ski is designed but if you ski it mainly soft conditions and you want a ski that skis easy and holds well ski to to go I give it a 4 out 5. Designed for the advanced to expert skier.
