Overview:

Replacing the Nordica Conquer, which was a system ski, the Wild Bells (mens version is the Steadfast) is a great improvement over the Conquer, giving you feedback that may have been lost with the system binding.  Wild Bells makes great transitions in turn shape and holds a decent edge on firm groomers and allowing you to play off piste with confidence.  I was a fan of the Conquer, and I’m an even bigger fan of the Wild Belle.
