Nordica designs and constructs their junior race skis with the same quality and high performing materials as found in their adult skis, even at the World Cup level. This junior slalom ski is available in a wide range of lengths that will work for a wide range of ages. While the turn radius is smaller than adult race skis, it's more appropriate for kids and really gives them a preview of what full on adult race skis are going to feel like. This is because just like the adult models these skis use Nordica's Energy 2 Titanium construction. This construction is designed to maximize power and stability thanks to its wood core and two sheets of titanal metal. Nordica includes a Marker Junior Race Plate on these junior skis.
