Comments about Icelantic Nomad RKR Skis 2014:

I've got three days on the Nomad RKRs and these are great skis. Lots of fun in all kinds of terrain, from corduroy to the deep stuff. They even to relatively well in the bumps. Don't get too far in the back seat, though, or they'll punish you for your poor form.

I'm 5'8" ~160lbs and went with the 181s which was, in retrospect, a mistake. While they ski short, they don't ski *that* short.

Bottom line: as long as you hit the sweet spot for size, these are some pretty fun skis.

    you wont ever think to yourself i wish i rode a diffrent ski cause they are so insanely versatile. if you like to smear butter and play look no further they love to play. that being said if you want to they get mean and show you their kungfu grip on hardpack. works for park too.

        • Spring Snow

        Comments about Icelantic Nomad RKR Skis 2014:

        I have this in 171 cm and use it for everything on the mountain. It is fun in slush/spring, moguls, powder, grommers, hard pack
        If i could only bring one ski to the mountain this would be the one

        I find it in 171 cm Quick enough to do moguls but wide to give lift in pow
        I am 180 cm and about 100 kg

        I could be better on ICE and really hard packed, but you Can get it all.

        Have a look pivot 120 on it and it makes it light but still i get a reliable binding
        I find some marker bindings a bit on the heavy side
