Technical info:
El Paco is a ski with a short turning radius and a distinct rocker at both ends, and includes taper. Here we also find the test's softest back ski and a traditional sidecut that is backset by 6 centimeters. El Paco, that only a a few years ago was a broad park ski, has become an average 87 millimeter model.

On snow:
This year we are testing Nordica’s El Paco - the little brother of former Fri Flyt test winner the Ace of Spades. This ski feels familiar. It has the Nordica edge grip and ready action. It is stable and floats well down the slope. It also performs well on rails and on medium jumps. The El Paco suits freestyle skiers of all ages.

Pros:
+ Svært svingglade ski som mange kan like

Cons:
– Myke tupper som gir lek, men gir også mindre støtte i landinger
