My friends nordys delamed after only about a half season of medium light use. the area right behind the shovle on both skis devleoped a crake, and the skis are now being replaced. i also noticed that the top sheets on that ski are very soft, if some one runs over your tails in the lift line, it leves a goughe in the tail not just a scratch. same with the bases

THey also seem rather heavy even though his arnt too long.

The 12 goes to the top of the SUV line in 2005/2006 as the 14 has been discontinued. I found the 04/05 a good ride, quick turner and stable. With one sheet of metal as opposed to 2 in the suv14 the 12 was not as damp, but also not as fast as the suv14. I own the 14's, but also like the 12. I think the Hot Rod series is going to lead the way for Nordica in the all mountain catagory for the next couple of years.

Hmmm, what do I think of them?

I find them relatively light for such a stable ski. Seem sturdy enough so far.

I demoed the Nordica SUV 12s and they are an excellent ski. Outstanding edge and very stable through crud and end of day slop. I was impressed.

they r really good skis my friend doesn't give them much respect...but thats nothing new...usually when he hates something of mine its really good...I am not sure about realibilty though but they r and outstanding ski for anypart of the mountain. Great turns, good grip, and really nice feel. I recommend the ski...even though mine did delam like yukon said...still my shop is giving me a new 06 so whatever...Is anything different for the 06 SUV 12 XBS. I have heard its spose to be a bit better.
