2017 Nordica Belle 78 Women's Skis. In a world where bigger, fatter skis rule the day, its refreshing to have something like the Nordica Belle 78 on hand. Perfect for groomed terrain and a bit of off-piste adventuring, the Belle 78 is an ideal intermediate womens cruiser because of its balsa wood core, all-mountain cam-rock shape, and moderate turn radii. Balsa wood is known for its light weight and snappy feel.They actually stack a bunch of Balsa strings up side by side in order to create that airy, yet damp feeling. If youve ever flown or built a little model airplane, those things are made from Balsa, and youll remember how well those things flew. These days, it seems like there are as many different kinds of rocker built into skis as there are stars in the sky.
Finding the right rocker shape for you and your skiing can be intimidating. Nordica takes out the guesswork with the Belle 78. It simplifies the rockercalled all mountain camrockwhich emphasizes tip rocker (25%) over tail rocker (5%). This makes turn initiation a breeze while the tail holds on to the turn until the skier is ready to transition. The tip rocker also floats a bit easier, and not a powder ski per se, the Belle 78 can rise up a bit in the softer and fresher snow.The other big buzz these days is a turn radius. Different radii are better for different types of skiing, but when you are making a middle level, solid performing womens ski, you want to keep the radius moderatetoo short and youll be turning constantly, too long and youll have a harder time carving pure turns. At 14 meters at 153 cm, the Belle 78 carves forth a nicely shaped turn, well suited for many different ability levels and speeds. Turn Radius: 14 meters at 153cm. Sidecut: 114/78/98 mm at 145 to 161 cm, 116/80/100 mm at 169 cm. Ability Level: Beginner to Advanced Intermediate Woman Skiers. Where to Find Your Boot Sole Length (BSL). The boot sole length is not your foot size or boot size; it is a millimeter measurement of the boot shell. Ski boot manufacturers emboss this measurement into the plastic shell at the heel or under the arch. The number will fall between 255-365mm for an adult ski boot. This number will be greater than your mondo boot size eg. A mondo size of 23.5 commonly has a BSL of 275mm. Please include the mm unit to indicate that the number given is the BSL and not the mondo size.
