THE SELL: Nordica’s entry into the variable-sidecut, rockered-tip-and-tail market. THE TEST Nowadays, skis this fat typically feature tapered—reverse sidecut—tips and tails, but Nordica went with a more traditional silhouette on the Radict. That translates to more rockered surface area, which makes for a very floaty ski. The Radict earned its high placement in our rankings because testers who were more than six feet and 180 pounds raved about it. But while the Clydesdales found it maneuverable, surfy, and playful, small and medium-size testers found it stiff and tough to pivot. Too bad it comes in only one size, 185 centimeters. THE VERDICT: A hard-charging powder hog for the big boys. 157/127/146

Overall: 4
Stability: 4
Float: 4.5
