The 2017 Nordica Astral 78 is a stable and playful ride that is designed to make skiing easier. At 78 mm underfoot, the Astral's are capable of skiing all-mountain conditions and terrain. Thanks to the shape, construction, and profile, the 2018 Nordica Astral 78 is the ideal all-mountain tool.
The Astral is made up of a combination of Nordica's technology, and the shape of the Astral 78 is no different. The tips are modeled after the Santa Ana line for float and proper turn initiation, the tails are race inspired, and the core has lightweight wood with titanium hex bridge. As a result, you get a truly versatile ski, capable of handling a lot of different snow conditions and terrain.
The titanium hex bridge is a geometrically shaped layer that increases stiffness without creating a lot of extra heft. The result is an easy to turn, lightweight ski that seems to bounce and dance down the slope. The race-inspired tails really hold the ski into the arc throughout the duration of the turn. The 14 meter turn radius at 158 cm length is short enough to rail some turns, while the tip rocker allows the pilot to dictate the shape and duration of the turn.
Radius: 13m @ 156cm
Dimensions: 113/92/123 (156cm)
Rocker: All-Mountain Rocker
