Description

Fun in the sun, pow, and groomers.

Skiers are wanderers by nature, so Icelantic designed the Nomad RKR Ski to be the perfect sidekick on all your powder-crushing, hardpack-cruising, and mountain-exploring adventures. Since it's designed to rally whatever sort of terrain you point it at, the Nomad sports a hybrid camber and rocker construction, with a slight-but-edgy 2mm of camber underfoot and a rockered tip and tail that smooth out rough snow and plane over fluff for a fun, versatile ride that'll never have you wishing you brought your other boards to the hill. The springy poplar core keeps things playful on side-of-the-trail hits and medium-sized cliff drops, but it's been laid up with two fiberglass laminates, one unidirectional and one triaxial, for lateral and fore/aft stiffness that let you drive the Nomad hard without it getting noodly (Icelantic gives the Nomad RKR a 7/10 flex rating, if you're curious).

The binding mount zone's been reinforced with a fiberglass plate—if you've never pulled out a heelpiece, now's not a good time to start—and the sidewalls are made of rugged Durasurf 2001 P-Tex. The Durasurf 4001 bases are sintered for speed and wax retention, and the 2.2mm steel edges slice up the frontside with the all precision of a Japanese blade, so you can jump turn the chute off the summit, mob through the open terrain, and finish off on a groomer without batting an eyelash. And, of course, there are Icelantic's famous graphics, done by artist Travis Parr and guaranteed to help you start chairlift convos with the hottie on the rental boards.

best ski ever made

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I tested a lot of skis last year from the mantra which was too stiff and boring, to the soul 7 which was too light and wimpy and the nomad rkrs were just right. Right now I have a three ski quiver, including the nomads, the line opus, and the line prophet 90 and whats funny is I prefer the nomads on groomers over the prophets and like the way they perform in pow better than the opus.

Icelantic has somehow made a ski that has easy turn initiation, stability at speed, amazing edge hold, ability to rip race style turns, and great float all in one. These skis perform so well everywhere that they have really improved my skiing and overall confidence. cannot speak more highly about a pair of skis.

Powder, hardpack, uphill, downhill, it's all good on the Nomads.

Hola Krista - Are you mainly touring on the Nomad? I just won a pair (thank you Oscar Blues, Icelantic & A-Basin) and I'm considering it for a touring set up, with some time at the resort. Thank you!

Beautiful area. The regular Nomad has had me more than pleased for three years now, and I can't wait to get into a pair of RKR'ed ones!

They are like a wild horse!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I tested them in 3 different conditions. And my conclusion is that they are like a wild horse. You need to Domate the skis first in all conditions and all the power will come once you get used to them.

After a snow storm I tried them in the Chilean Andes. They are really fast in deep snow and manouvers perfect! I'm 1,77m and i purchased a 1,81 model.

I tried them in ski centers also, and they are even better than i thought.
Carving, speed, and difficult turns were not an issue. Hard pack snow, ice, what's that? i just skied over it like a katana cutting butter. I love them now!

And at last, I tried them for ski touring with Salomon Guardian 13 bindings.

1) Very good feel.
2) They are a bit heavy but it pays off at the descent. Totally worth to carry those extra grams.
3) Graphics are awesome!
