FS: Brand New, Unskied, Fully Prepped 193cm Nordica Helldorado, with New Salomon STH2 16 WTR's

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

These are brand new 193cm Nordica Helldorado's. They have been mounted, and fully prepped by a race shop in Eagle Valley, CO that preps skis for National Team and other elite athletes {PM me for exact details}. The best. 

 

They skis have been lightly ground and structured to set them up {you can see the diagonal marks of the structure through the wax in the picture of the bases} , and tuned with a Trione and stones to 1/3 bevels. Sidewalls professionally pulled, and based loaded with wax. This is a $150 prep service. Not the typical shop "new prep", at al. 

 

The Helldorado has a 21M radius, and a 143mm-113mm-132mm shape. Built with a laminated wood core, 2 layers of titanal {metal}, with vertical sidewall construction. This is the big brother of the Patron, with the metal added. It's an incredibly versatile ski: able to ski powder really well, and bust through any kind of crud or skied out conditions, yet amazingly great at groomers. It's often described as the perfect ski to ski both off piste, and back to the groomers. 

 

The ski has both tip rocker and tail rise. It's a very stable ski, but it is also very easy to ski. Don't be put off by the length, most people think it skis a bit shorter than a 193cm. I agree. It feel like it when you need it, but its also pretty maneuverable and quick. 

 

I've mounted them with my favorite new binding, the Salomon STH2 16 WTR. I've been skiing steel Salomons for many years, as have both of my kids on their free skis. Now that they are retired racers, in their late 20's, our whole family is on Salomon. This binding simply works….solid click in, great to use in deep snow. You stay in when you should, and come put when you should. This pair is new. My son has a pair with almost 500 days on them…..zero issues. The brakes, BTW are 115mm wide, as they should be for the ski. 

 

These were mounted for a 305mm BSL, right at the factory "classic" mounting point. Keep in mind that the heels have up to 22mm of travel. The ski is also incredibly overbuilt in the mounting area. If you need to remount, it's not an issue. 

 

The typical shop cost for the skis, bindings, and the prep work exceeds $1200. 

 

I'm only selling these as I don't need them, and I do need another narrower ski.  I was unable to ski these last season, due to a health issue that kept me off the hill. They're perfect, brand new, have been loaded with wax, and are ready to go. I don't need two pairs of them. Your gain. 

 

The skis are with our son, who lives in Eagle County CO. We can arrange for pickup/drop off there, or in Summit County. Otherwise we can ship them to you, properly packed and professionally shipped. We'll need to determine the exact shipping cost based on your location. I don't seek to make a dime on shipping, nor will I absorb any losses, but giving away the shipping. If you're not on top of this, read some of the threads on Epic….shipping costs are up for those of us shipping privately. I know how to do it at a reasonable rate. 

 

$595, plus shipping if needed. 

 

Please see the pics below. They are the great black "murdered out" top sheets, with last year's yellow Salomon bindings. Great looking setup, that skis even better. Note that the bases are covered in wax. Unskied, they are perfect.

 

PM mw with questions,and I can fill you in on more details. Thanks.
