2009 Nordica Hot Rod Jet Fuel Ski Reviews

excellent tracking ski

Pros: Very stable

Cons: weighs a lot

The former head ski designer for Volkl now works for Nordica so it is no surprise that the Jet Fuel tracks like a classic Volkl ride. Double torsion box core and metal top sheet make this ski very durable. It is heavy and not the easiest ski to turn. It loves speed but also does well at lower speeds in powder. I find that the Jet Fuel is at its best in cut up snow and wind blown crud but is also good on hard pack. A great choice for a one ski quiver.
