Nordica El Capo Skis 2014

Nordica
Shop all Nordica
For skiers that want absolutely no compromise on hard snow, but still venture into the fluffy stuff whenever it's available, the Nordica El Capo Skis are the ones for you. Two sheets of titanal and 107 mm underfoot, the El Capo is a beast in all snow conditions. Thanks to Nordica's progressive sidecut and "hammerhead" tip design, this ski wrecks shop no matter the weather.
Rocker Type
Powder CamRock - Powder 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.
 
Flex
Medium-Stiff - Rides hard and fast down the slopes while still allowing for precise turns and flotation in pow.
Core
Ash/Poplar Wood Core
Laminates
Energy 2 Titanium - Offers the highest level of performance with a full wood core from tip to tail and two layers of Titanium extending over the edges. This construction comes directly from the World Cup and provides the most precise flex curve as well as maximum power transmission, torsion resistance, and rebound in all conditions.
 
Sidewalls
ABS Sidewall - Helps dampen hard landings while decreasing vibration fatigue
Base
UHMW sintered graphite Electra Gallium
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Big Mountain, Powder
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Big Mountain
    Big mountain skis are designed for charging big lines with high speeds and big airs. These skis varry in width from wide, powder-oriented skis for skiing Alaska spines to narrower, mixed condition skis for ripping the beat up headwall at your local mountain. Skis in this category tend to be on the stiffer side, often with more rocker in the tip and less in the tail.
    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: Long
    Long
    > 22 m radius is best for powder and big-mountain.
  • Core/Laminates: Metal, 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.
