Nordica GT 80 TI EVO + N PRO X-Cell EVO reviews 2017

PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments

The Nordica GT 80 ti EVO is a great all-mountain ski, largely due to its width underfoot (80 mm) which makes it comfortable on all types of snow. Turn initiation is very easy and edge hold in turns is excellent.

It's remarkably easy, predictable, tolerant and enjoyable. The smooth transition between carves and skids makes cruising especially satisfying.

The ski is quite heavy and lacks the stiffness needed for top performance. Its behaviour starts to deteriorate in aggressive carving at high speed on hard pack when the reviewers regretted the lack of energy and a certain degree of inertia.

The pleasure riders get from this ski comes more from its user-friendliness and smooth performance than its responsiveness. The GT 80 Ti EVO is a good ski for riders looking for a tool that is comfortable on all types of snow for smooth transitions from gentle skid turns to carved turns and carving initiation.

Review: Pros

  • Tolerant and accessible
  • Comfortable and stable
  • Smooth transition between carved /slide/skid turns
  • Great fun

Review: Cons

  • A heavy ski
  • Limited when carving
  • Lacks character and responsiveness
