Read the Review Transcript: I'm Kyle. I just got off the Nordica El Capo. I give this ski a 5 out of 5. I really liked it. With the metal in it it feels really stiff and can handle any kind of speed. So, on the firmer days I'm sure it's going to hold really well for anything on the mountain. But even with the little bit softer snow like today it just absolutely ripped. I give this ski a 5 out of 5.
