Astral 84 Ski
Smack in the middle of the Astral lineup, the Nordica Astral 84 Ski plays well with fresh corduroy and blue bird laps at the resort. The versatile 84mm waist tackles groomers and crud like a champion, providing exceptional edge hold and response thanks to its unique Hex Bridge construction. A layer of honeycomb titanium in the ski both dampens unwanted vibrations and drives energy into each turn, resulting in a ski that that's a quick and powerful on-trail machine.
The Astral 84's All Mountain Rocker is also designed for on-piste performance, with early rise in the tips to ease turn initiation, and a classic squared-off tail shape that enhances stability and edge control at speed. Camber underfoot helps you effortlessly pop from turn to turn without feeling squirrely, so you can spend your day racing friends on the groomers or simply showing off your perfect form on the moguls.

- 84m waist offers quick edge-to-edge control on-piste

Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preffered style of skiing. For example, an expert skier on in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
