Technical info:
We haven´t tested Nordica´s women´s models before, but the first impression is that we are dealing with a real lightweighter. This ski has a lot of sidecut and soft flex. The soft tip is a long bend and rocker in one, which gives an acute angle in the forward direction.

On snow:
Here you have a ski with fantastic edge grip. One of the more experienced test riders commented that it performed like a racing ski. It is not particularly playful at low speed, but will put a grin on your face once you open up the turns. There is something about this ski that prevents it from floating. So if you know that you will mostly be skiing on groomed trails yet want a good allrounder, you should consider Santa Ana. Also a good choice for ski touring
