Nordica’s GT 84 Ti EVO doesn’t take every ounce of the skier’s energy to bend it. The ski's clever core construction depends on prepreg sheets of carbon instead of glass, a weight eliminator on a par with liposuction. GT 84 Ti EVO's twin sheets of Titanal are also run through a weight loss regimen, producing a crisscross diamond pattern in the forebody that softens longitudinal flex while retaining a rigid beam when set on edge. 

The Nordica GT 84 Ti EVO is at home settled into a medium-radius rhythm. Naturally it wouldn’t mind eating up groomers for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but it can handle its business off trail when summoned. “Wow,” wrote Pat Parraguirre. “Felt right at home on this baby. It skied, I just followed along.”
