Hand crafted in Austria, the Wild Belle is “a cruiser ski coast-to-coast,” according to Brown Brent. “It’s for those who favor a damp, solid ski and medium to long radius turns.” Testers awarded the Wild Belle the highest scores of the group for carving and stability. At 84 millimeters underfoot, the Wild Belle’s waist borders on All-Mountain, but testers called it “nimble” thanks to a lightweight construction. Nordica’s Energy Ca Wi-Core blends tip rocker for maneuverability with a hardwood core surrounding two lightweight composite stringers designed to reduce weight and stiffness. The women’s-specific core creates “a super sweet spot that’s easy to find and stay in with little effort,” Minneci said.
