2012 Nordica Fire Arrow 80 Pro Reviews

fast, reliable, lightweight

Pros: This ski performs well under all types of conditions. Great for an all-mountain (all-world) skier!

Cons: top sheet is a little slippery when wet

My first impression of this ski was right on! It's flashy cover and lightweight design performs like a race ski over all types of conditions. I would recommend this ski to the type of skier who: 1. enjoys skiing off-piste aggressively 2. can arc down steep terrain 3. who wants to up their level of skiing performance. If you fit the above criteria then this is the ski for you! No "joeys" need apply.

Ski of the Year for 2012

Pros: Versatile, precise, unwavering

This was my go-to ski this past season.  I have about 40 days on them at this point and I have to say that this may be the best all-around ski that Nordica has ever built.  Eastern hardpack, powder, ice, crud, groomers, bumps - this ski loves it all and is surprisingly quick edge-to-edge for an 80mm waisted ski.  I skied it in a 170cm here on the East Coast, but if I was out West I'd ski it a bit longer.  Incredible product - thank you Nordica!

Pros: Stability, long turns

Cons: Short turns, adaptability

Ski: Nordica Fire Arrow 80 Pro Dimensions: 132/80/115 Tested Length: 180 Turn Radius: 16 meters Price w/binding: $1,199.95   The Good: Stability, long turns The Bad: Short turns, adaptability   Verdict: A powerful ski with a tendency to want to run strong and fast, the Fire Arrow moves in one direction only—quickly down the hill. It is isn’t as versatile as other skis in this category, but makes a hell of a strong play in holding high-speed turns wherever it wants.
