2015/2016 Nordica Fire Arrow 80 Ti ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its men’s Frontside Category and awarded it an Editors’ Choice honor.

“This is a user-friendly ski with tons of performance,” says Maybon of the Fire Arrow 80 Ti Evo. The 80-mm-wasited on-piste ski features Nordica’s race-oriented Evo Energy 2 Titanium construction, which includes a wood core, two sheets of metal and the power-spreading Evo plate and binding combo. The Moderate Race Profile combines a slalom-style rockered tip with a GS shape from the waist back, designed to increase turn shape versatility—verified by testers who gave the Fire Arrow 80 Ti its highest scores in the carving department. “This is a stable, well-balanced ski,” says Bills. “It holds like a race ski, but can also skid a turn or handle bumps and crud.”
