Nordica Patron Skis 2013

Like its Tequila namesake, the Nordica Patron Skis provide a smooth sensation going down and an intoxicating ride. The High Rise rocker profile enables you to smoke the deep stuff and seamlessly transition to railing GS turns on harder snow. Don't settle for a low-end buzz, check out the Nordica Patron for a smooth and refreshing experience that'll go straight to your head (salt and limes not included).
Rocker Type
High Rise - Designed with deep powder in mind, the tip and tail are rockered while the center is cambered to give you great grip on all types of snow.
Flex
Medium - Provides float and rides "fast" while still providing enough flex to allow for fast and precise turns
Core
I-Core - A specifically designed, very lightweight wood core for easier hiking without sacrificing on snow performance
Laminates
SW CA laminate
Topsheet
Poliamide
Sidewalls
ABS Sidewall - Helps dampen hard landings while decreasing vibration fatigue
Base
UHMW sintered graphite Electra Gallium base
Binding Compatibility
Bindings not included
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: Powder
    Powder
    These skis are for the deep days. If you like to find powder stashes at your local resort, go on backcountry missions for the freshest of fresh or heli ski trips to BC, powder skis are what you need to stay afloat. Skis in the powder category are wide and most often have some form of rocker or early rise plus a relatively soft flex. Many powder skis today are versatile enough to handle mixed conditions and harder snow.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
