Built like a race ski, the Firearrow 84 EDT has full camber, a slalom tip, and a GS waist (84 mm underfoot) and tail. Testers gave the Firearrow 84 EDT high marks across the board, particularly praising its stability and carving prowess. "It shifts gears from groomed to variable snow seamlessly," said Maybon. "This is an exceptional one-ski quiver. It's versatile in all conditions except deep snow." Nordica's race-oriented Evo Energy 2 titanium construction includes two sheets of metal plus EDT (Efficient Dynamic Technology), originally designed for ski boots and adapted to skis in the form of a carbon alloy insert secured by four attachment points for both flexibility and stability. "This ski encourages varying your line and exploring," said Beidleman. "I'd pick it for a frontside, all-around, yo-yo day."
