NEW for 2018, the Nordica Navigator 85 is the next evolution of the infamous NRGy series ski, while incorporating design ideas from the infamous Enforcer series.
Nordica redesigned the skis to be more performance oriented—faster into turns and with a smaller turning radius so the turns can be quicker, sharper, more precise. Nordica added a titanal grid to add rigidity but not weight, with a new tail design to improve grip in the turns.
Navigator 85 is a frontside ripper. Capable of carving, yet not shy of a trip into the trees or through the bump line. A little fresh powder? Not a problem. Navigator 85 does that too. Avie’s ski testers liked this ski a lot. It performed well all around the mountain in all conditions.
If you are an intermediate to advanced level skier, and want a set of sticks that can take you into the woods and through the bumps—to Grandmother’s house if you want—but still impress with graceful carves on the frontside, Navigator 85 is worth a serious look. [bindings sold separately]
