Ski Like the Nordica Radict?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've got a pair of the 2012 Nordica Radicts that I love.  They're 128 underfoot, but I can carve them on groomers and I'm even happy skiing (soft) bumps.  They have a 17m radius, so I can ski them in tight trees, but still feel comfortable with some speed above treeline.

 

So what's the problem?  Well, there are so many NEW skis I could buy...

 

So, the question is: are there any newer skis that are similar to the radict?  I ski traditionally with a forward stance.  I bought the Praxis Protest but hated it because I couldn't keep pressure on my shins without tip dive.

 

The one thing I would change in the radict is that the tip has such a low, slow rise, there are situations where the tips will bury just a bit.

 

Any ideas?  I'd be happy on anything 116mm and up.

 

Thanks!!

Yeah, I did see the bushywayne.  Haven't tried them though.  Maybe i'll find a demo.  I did notice they got a little longer than the radict.  Wasn't sure if there were other changes that would make the ski better/different from the radict.  Any thoughts there?

 

Whiteroom, the Nocta seems like an excellent new direction.  How well do they hold an edge in harder snow?
