Nordica Ignition skis - park only?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey, looking for some info. Nordica Supercharger Ignitions are listed as park & pipe specific on some reviews. Does anyone know how they handle variable conditions or are they truly made to only stay in the park and pipe?

They can ski all over, pretty nicely too.

I think they are too soft for bumps, but pretty fun everywhere else.

Did you want torsionally stiffer tips?

Just plain stiffer tips.

I've been using a pair of 177cm Nordica Ignitions as my everyday ski this season. The have a moderate flex and are fairly stiff torsionally especially underfoot. I don't think they have a stiff tip at all.

They do great in Rocky Mountain bumps. They are fun on groomers with a decent edge bite but you can't drive the tips. They are very easy to turn quickly when needed. They will handle a few inches of powder or crud without any problem. I would highly recommend them for someone living out west. Out east I think you're better off with Rossi Scratch FSs.

I like them a lot better than the Scratch FS. Those feel like snowblades with rubber extensions on the ends. Tip it to arc and you feel like it's going to dig in at the binding. I'd just like Ignition to have a stiffer tip for bumps, but I really like it for Groomers and the Park. Nice round even flex makes it fun to carve on.

I might remount mine with Jesters next year.

Thanks for the input. I have Enforcers mounted with Jesters, but I'm researching skis for a friend of mine and the Enforcers are just too much ski for him. I thought the Ignitions would be a great alternative, but all of the reviews push them as a park ski.....Thanks again.
