Product Info

When race practice is over and you want link some high speed freeski laps with the homies, charge through the side stashes in the trees, or carve wide turns at mach speeds, look to the El Capo to meet your adrenaline needs. The Nordica El Capo Skis combine the best of Nordica s all-mountain and big mountain technology to deliver a semi-fat ski that's impressively versatile.

A wood core plus two layers of Titanal extending over the edges allows for maximum power transmission, making the Nordica El Capo Skis key in asserting your place as the captain of the mountain.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Powder CamRockPowder CamRock skis are built to ski powder in ways never before thought possible. With significant rocker in the tip and tail, these skis float effortlessly. By retaining a bit of camber under foot, these are still exceptionally stable and track comfortably in all snow conditions, even hard pack. The very low, broad, “Blunt Nose” design maximizes on edge snow contact while reducing unstable tip vibration that is a common in other rockered skis.

    Comments about Nordica El Capo Skis 2015:

    I got the 2015 Marker Griffons 110 on here too for 160 bucks... incredible combo. You will not be able to beat this combo without spending a K somewhere else. Good tweener ski pretty nimble and floats without problem and I'm 6'6" 280Lbs. Check that 285Lbs. had a 30oz ribeye and a grip of vino the night before riding them.

    Comments about Nordica El Capo Skis 2015:

    First pair of Nordica skis for me, and I love them. Rrrrrrrippers!
    These are very good everyday skis, if you're lucky enough to ski that much. I would say they are very good everyweekend skis too, but everyweekend isn't a word.
    Rubber bumper on the tail is a very nice feature for those little moments when leaning against the car or in a ski rack on one of these newfangled paved ski 'plaza' areas.
    These are Very well crafted planks, engineered in Italy and constructed in Austria by people that I reckon care a lot about skiing. The love is there.
