The best selling Nordica Hot Rod Tempest Returns again this season. The dictionary defines Tempest as a violent wind storm with rain, hail, or snow. This Tempest can take on any violent storm with lots of snow. The Tempest can be a great ski for an athletic intermediate, who is looking to step up his game, or the expert who will spend some time in the open bowls and trees, with most of the time on the hard pack. 80mm underfoot this powerful and damp ski, also has finesse and playfulness. Wide enough to float in some powder, yet quick edge to edge for blasting down a steep groomer. The All Mountain Sidecut is a round radius shape for added performance when the crud starts to build up. Nordica believes in 8mm of traditional camber to give energy and stability in its all mountain Hot Rod series. The Full Active Twin V Core gives you the confidence you want for burying the needle of the speedometer. Full vertical sidewalls and the Nordica EXP XBi binding system provide great edge grip for not having that slipping feeling that can happen on Midwest and Back East slopes. An intermediate will find the Tempest not too demanding, while the expert will find the ski damp yet playful, and will take on all conditions.

              Hi this is EJ. I just skied the Nordica Tempest. Shakespeare would say this is a wildly ski, that is it gets all over the place.The skis all over the place, it's a little choppy in the hard pack but a little smoother than some of the other Nordica skis I have been on. I give it four stars, cool looking ski, gets your attention with its orange motif. Holds an edge once you get there but on the chop it's a little lively. 162 length carves a nice turn and it holds a long turn and a fairly short turn radius as well. So, I give this four stars and it has some versatility so if you wanted s ski to go all over the mountain with it, at 80 mm wide underfoot, you are going to be a happy camper. Have a great day and keep up with your literature.

                    Hi this is Hans with the Nordica Tempest. The Nordica Tempest, for that level ski has a metal plate, integrated binding system, really beefy on the outside. It's a ski, again, for your intermediate level intermediate advanced skier. Definitely a carving ski, so great for the midwest, out west it might be a little bit on the narrow side but I give it a solid 3/5.

                          Hi this is Jesse, I just got done skiing the Nordica Hot Rod Tempest in a 170 length. It's a great ski, really good for carving on the front side. It's more designed for advanced intermediates to experts with that you really have to go full speed in order to get any action. Otherwise, it's kind of like it just doesn't give you what you need. Not that great at carving in slower speeds but once you get up to speed it's really awesome. Overall I give it a 4/5 stars. It's a lot of fun and I would definitely ski it again.

                                Hi this is John. I'm here with the Nordica Tempest Hot Rod. This particular ski had a little bit of rocker built into it. Nordica has done a nice job with what they have, not over done it like some of the other manufacturers. Super easy ski to initiate a turn, big shovel goes through the crud really easy. 80 under foot, felt super solid the whole time out there. Very good edge control, good all mountain ski you can ski anywhere. Was doing mostly short radius turns and felt in total control the whole time. I give this ski a four-star and loved it.

                                      Hi this is Luke. Just finished skiing the Nordica Hot Rod Tempest. I give this ski 5/5 stars. Just a phenomenal ski. 80 mm underfoot so it's really going to have a good width for really any all mountain conditions. That skiing that you're going to be doing, a little more geared towards your upper intermediate to expert level skier. It's the type of ski that can really muscle and just take right off and make some really fast turns, holds an edge really well, just a phenomenal fun fast more aggressive ski.

                                            Hey I'm Sean, I just skied the Nordica Hot Rod Tempest ski. I give it 4/5 stars. It's geared toward the intermediate to advanced skier. It handles great down big fast groomed runs but it's not going to be the ski you're going to want to take out on the powder. It has a sidewall, it's not a capped ski. It didn't give me that responsiveness I was hoping it would give me on a big long carving turns but at fast speeds it handled great and all out it was a fun ski. Again, I give it 4/5 stars and it's geared towards the intermediate to advanced skier.

                                                  Hi I'm Steve and I just got off the Nordica Tempest. I give this ski three and a half out of five stars. It was solid but I found this ski a little bit squirrelly in the turns. On the softer stuff it was able to hold nicely, on the icier more hard packed stuff it didn't have quite the edge hold that I was looking for. I think it would be a good intermediate level ski, intermediate to advanced intermediate ski but when you bring it up to speed and try to drive it really hard it doesn't have quite the edge hold.
