Nordica Nemesis (2014-15)
Nordica Nemesis Skis
With the brand new Nemesis, all-mountain conditions have met their match. Built with the new micro laminate Balsa Core Technology for significant weight reduction with improved metal like performance, this ski has true camber underfoot for unparalleled stability with a powder tip profile and a 98mm waist width for excellent maneuverability to conquer any terrain you throw at it.
The Balsa Core is a microlam construction made up of many thin balsa wood stringers stacked side by side, which provide a strong and damp metal like feeling at an extremely light weight. This damp feeling allows skiers to rip through any conditions.
