Description

Like a fat little ninja in a deck chair, this ride is wide, agile, and rockered.

Nordica must be feeding it's freeride line growth hormones, how else do you explain the hulking 157mm tip and high-rise rockered tip and tail of the Radict Ski? A 127mm chassis underfoot inhales deep stashes and soaks up big hits so much as flinching. Just in case you mistakenly stumble upon some hardpack on this monster, traditional camber and sidecut underfoot give you precise control to carve trenches back to the woods A.S.A.P. Point this playful behemoth towards your favorite backcountry hits and revel in the smooth-flexing ride.
  • High-rise rocker in the tip and tail provide extra-lofty float in deep powder or through crud
  • Traditional camber and sidecut underfoot gives you control on hardpack cat tracks back to the tram
  • Full wood core with sando construction for added pop and responsiveness
  • All of the Energy Frame materials work together to transfer energy from tip to tail for more pop and rebound when the ski is flexed in deep snow
  • Monstrous 157mm helps push the body of this ski on top of the snow and won't deflect easily in choppy conditions

Rad, Indeed

Not even sure what the name means, but the Nordica Radict Ski should make its way into your quiver if you like the fatter end of the do everything ski.

First off, this is a Nordica ski, it is at least decently stiff. But, this coupled with the rocker/ positive camber design and the sidecut actually helps to keep a ski that is 127mm more than somewhat agile (at 127!!).

The floatation of the ski is, of course, choice. But, it is different as it is so wide and with its rocker profile, you really are on top of most of the conditions and it makes those 2 inch days feel like 2 feet.

I'll elaborate on the agile feeling from before to say that you can actually rail some carved turns on these skis as long as you are a skilled enough pilot. The rebound of the ski is key to maintaining the fall line and if you can't control the rebound, you'll get bounced off line. Also, be sure you've hit those weights a bit as not only is it a bit stiff, but the swing weight is on the heavy side as well.

how would you compare the radict to the line 130, hellbent or s7? also, was there anything you didnt like about the radict?

thanks

Responded on

Hmm, good comparison question. The Radict is the stiffest of all of those ski, it floats third best to the Hellbent and Line 130, it holds the best edge of that group and is the second most manageable to the S7. Overall, there wasn't anything I didn't like about the Radict, though people who prefer a softer ski will get overwhelmed and the sizing is a bit weird as I'm in the 187-190 range for a big mountain ski and the 185 took a bit of getting used to.

how much does the radict weigh?

Love these skis!

I ski the Radicts with Hammerheads (stiffy springs) and Scarpa T1 boots. They are incredible in the powder. Super stable, surprisingly nimble and really fun. The only down sides are that these skis will pummel you once the powder starts to get packed down in spots, and they are heavy, so if you are going long distances on a cat-track, they will tire you faster. Women seem to really like the graphics, and often initiate conversations based on them. I highly recommend the Radicts for shallow (anything over 3 inches)-to-deep powder, and tracked-up but unpacked powder.

If you're trying to decide on these skis, see the reviews posted for last year's model (2010). They are accurate.
