Nord K0.0 GS Ti

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I Found a deal on 02/03 Nord K0.0 GS Ti for less then $120 shipped. The catch is the lenght avalible are 178, 193, or 198. I am 5'8" and about 195. Hopfuly 180 by the begining of the season. PSIA level II Alpine, skier level 8. Some have told me I am a level 9 skier but I think true level 9's have names like Mahre, Stenmark, and Rahlves. I raced USSA back in the day and have coached J4's, High School and Ski Club level college(SUNY-Albany, The drinking team with the skiing problem).
Any input would be great.

Nordica K 0.0 GS was a 2000/2001 ski, not 02/03.
97-63-85, radius 24/185 cm, wood core + 2*titanal. I don´t know (remember) how stiff it was.
If you don´t mind the narrowish dimensions and know that it´s not too stiff 193 cm would make an excellent speed ski for early morning runs.
I´m not so sure about the 178 cm. It is (was!) rather short for a GS from times when even best women still used 190 cm. It could be softer and more pleasant to handle. Otoh, such a short length could (I don´t know if the dimensions varied according to the length) possibly have only about 95 mm tip which is almost too narrow by today´s standards.
I guess you with your racing background can decide yourself.

Thanks for the reply. The Nordica USA Pro site says its a 02/03, but I have seen your posts and will trust your knowledge. Must be a typo. Sounds like a 193 if I pull the trigger.

Thanks again,

You don´t have to trust my knowledge but we should trust the Nordica catalog.
The 01/02 skis were K 11 GS Gel Driver (102-64-87, different lengths), a year later - your 02/03 - the skis were K 12 GS (dimensions not announced, different lengths again).
I have checked all three catalogs. The only retail ski in the lengths given is the K 0.0 of 00/01.
If I decided to get it 193 cm would be my choice as well.

I'm with Checkracer on this one. I believe it is an 01 ski. I actually have a pair in 178 which I picked up on E-bay last year. I actually bought them for the bindings but tried skiing them and they were surprisingly good. Made a good all round ski, not nearly as much work as my Fischer race GS skis but still with decent performance. In fact i think I actuyally used them in a Masters GS when I was struggling with the Fischers Can't check the dimensions I'm afraid as my stuff is in storage while I move house.

Oh, and I'm not sure about the Ti designation. Mine are just marked K0.0 GS with the square sidewalls and the Nordica plate

Correct. The construction was "Energy Ti" but the ski was just "K 0.0 GS".

I´m not surprised by ScotSkier´s characteristics of the 178 cm version. That´s why I wrote "It could be softer and more pleasant to handle" in my first post.
