2016/2017 Nordica GT 80 Ti EVO ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its men’s Frontside Category.

“Plows through ruts or junk snow and performs surprisingly well in moguls,” says Rice of the Nordica GT 80 Ti EVO. “It’s stable, but you need to work it in every turn.” The GT 80 Ti EVO, one of six skis in the new GT series, received nearly tied scores across the board, with slightly lower marks for versatility. “The ski is easy to carve and has a lower speed limit than some, so it’s most comfortable on blue terrain,” says Cole. Nordica’s Energy 2 Titanium Torsion Bridge construction includes a poplar/beech wood core sandwiched between two milled out Titanal “bridges.” The ski comes with the EVO plate system, built with a boosted stand height that increases leverage over the edges like a World Cup racing plate.
