That is a steal for sure. To answer the question above, the 09 Nitrous is lighter due to the binding interface being infused in the core. Also not Markers on the 09 but VIST bindings.

I just purchased a pair of Nitrous 170's (demos - used) and was wondering if anyone knows the factory tuning settings (base/edge)?
Also, they don't seem to have much of a base structure - - I am most familiar with Nordica's race stock which typically comes (off the shelf) with a well defined base structure. Thought this might be because they are demos ...and wondered if this was different for anyone who bought these skis new?
I shouldn't have looked at this thread! I was all set to pick up Fischer Red Heats but a good recommendation on the gear discussion board has me looking at the Nitrous. I can get a pair from last year locally for a great price but they're only available in 162. I'm 5'7", currently 180lb but falling fast, and expect to be about 165 by mid-season. Strong Type II, maybe level 8, ski almost exclusively on-piste and at moderate to fast speeds but really struggle in the NH/ME crud.
Would 162 be too short for me? Opinions?
