2022 Nordica Santa Ana 84
As the narrowest of the Santa Ana line, the 84 holds a special place in the hearts of all front-side loving skiers. At 84 mm underfoot and with Nordica's Terrain-Specific metal, these skis have a tremendous amount of edge grip and energy, allowing advanced skiers to really dig in, hold on, and create some very clean and round turns. Like most high-performance skis these days, it all starts with the core. Nordica uses their performance wood core and bolsters it with carbon stringers, much like the Enforcer and Santa Ana skis already have. This starts the ski off on the right foot for sure, as the wood and the carbon combine to make a stiff and stable ski that loves to be on edge. Again, that single metal laminate is the next part of the equation, and this allows the ski to generate a ton of power and dampness to the edges of the skis. As a narrow ski, it is the beneficiary of the widest metal laminate in the line, so you're getting the most relative metal per the width of the ski, allowing for pure edge grip and an even flex from tip to tail. Speaking of tips, the Santa Ana 84 also benefits from Nordica's use of True Tip, which substitues the pre-existing ABS sidewall material with a thinner wood, creating a ligter swing weight and better flotation in softer snow. Advanced and expert front-side skiers will love the smooth and energetic performance of the Nordica Santa Ana 84.
Marker Squire 11 Bindings (90MM)
The completely redesigned Squire 11 has progressive looks and is specially designed for lighter weight but fully motivated freeride and freestyle rookies. An extensively improved, lightweight Triple Pivot Light toe piece features a distinctive Ice Off Rail to keep the sole free of snow and ice. A state-of-the-art Hollow Linkage heel with its wider boot holder reduces the step-in force by approximately 35%, even with GripWalk soles. All in all, the Squire 11 is very compact and, despite its GripWalk compatibility, only 24 mm high, which allows a very direct feel and ski control. Available in four colour combinations.
