“Nordica’s Steadfast 85 TI DC proves that performance shouldn’t come at the expense of fun. Armed with an appetite for the entire mountain, this all-mountain ski is as playful as it is versatile.

This amplifies your confidence and control while delivering a ride that’s playful and forgiving. And thanks to a wider waist, it’s at home in any terrain and all conditions. Whether lapping groomers with friends, skiing the bumps and trees, or laying down fresh tracks, Nordica’s Steadfast 85 TI DC is ready to elevate your game and your memories.”
