Test Notes

The Nordica Spitfire DC 80 Pro is a corduroy crusader that injects confidence and stability into its speedy profile. This ski packed a punch with its ease of turn initiation, but with an impressively energetic release. With a waist width of 80 millimetres, it has a wide enough platform to manage a variety of terrain and conditions, while still being the star on piste. The Spitfire excelled and was determined to be at speed, while maintaining stability and control, making this animal best suited for anyone from a strong advanced to expert skier. So if you’re an ex-racer who wants to hold an edge in a GS course, or an arc-addicted groomer hound looking to lay down aggressive turns on hard pack, the Spitfire is here for it. —Katie Spittlehouse
