Nordica Women's Olympia Drive XBS Skis w/3.10 XB Binding:
In concept the Women's Olympia Victory XBS is everything an all-mountain expert should expect from a versatile ski, but the wood core gives the Victory XBS significantly more pop, a trait that will throw more than a few intermediate and advanced skiers in rolling terrain. That's why Nordica designed this forgiving and intermediate-friendly Olympia Drive XBS ski. While the sidecut proportions and lengths are identical to the Olympia Victory, the Olympia Drive XBS has a reliable composite-mono wood core that dampens vibrations and gives new riders a predictable ride--even in the undulating crud. It's still just as versatile as the other all-mountain Olympia skis, but advanced and intermediate riders will find more control in the broken snow beyond the hardpack runs and spring corn. The Nordica Olympia Drive ski features a XBS (X Balance System) binding interface that transmits consistent pressure from your boots to the ski edges for improved stability, balance and control. Extra heel pressure from the back of the ski is transferred through the integrated Marker binding and XBS interface to the area in front of the binding, redistributing your skiing power unlike anything else available on the market. The Olympia Drive also has Nordica's 2V Active CA construction, a closed power train chassis specifically designed for aggressive skiing, so intermediates will never think that this ski is holding them back.
