2023 Nordica Unleashed 98 Skis w/ Tyrolia Attack14 GW Bindings
Nordica Unleashed 98 Skis with Bindings
The Nordica Unleashed 98 Skis with Bindings is a great set up for those skiers who are looking for a ski and binding that rules the entire mountain. At 98-millimeters under foot, it has the waist width that that we strongly feel is the ideal width for true versatility. carve the groomers, ski the bumps, slice and dice the trees, even float through some fresh pow, the 98 delivers that one-ski quiver mentality that will cover your ski trip no matter what conditions are dealt to you that particular day. With a wood core and terrain specific metal, the ski is damp and powerful and extremely stable at speed. The metal in the ski dampens the vibrations while carbon chassis keeps swing weight down and provides plenty of pop and rebound from turn to turn. Short, rapid fire turns or long, sweeping GS turns fast or slow, the 98 gives you the ability to make any turn shape at any time. The Rocker profile of the 98 makes this ski a surprisingly floater for its narrower width, and is a very capable powder ski for that 3-6" range of fresh snow. East or West, North or South, you will have the confidence to be ready for whatever Mother Nature throws at you with the Nordica Unleashed 98 Skis with Bindings.

Love your videos. Watched so many of them!
I'm looking to get a new setup. I'm currently on the Armada TST 174, from 2012. The great thing about these skis is they have such short edge length and rocker profile that they are very lively and playful in all conditions. I like that, but I'd also like to have a little more edge length and stability on harder pack. I mainly ski in Tahoe and Utah. I've tried the Enforcer 104 Free 179 on a hard pack day (MLK weekend) at Squaw-Pallisades and loved the edge control and stability through the turns at speed.
I am looking for a playful twin tip ski that is a one-ski quiver with ideally a bit more power for carving on hard pack. I like powder when we get it, and ski all over the mountain, in the crud, moguls and hard pack. My questions relate to whether or not I should go for the unleashed 180 or possibly the unlimited 180 for my next pair. What are some of the trade offs between these skis and the 104 free? Or, possibly you have another suggestion?
Thanks a bunch,
If you're looking for the power similar to the 104 Free and the playfulness of a twin tip, I think the unleashed 98 is the way to go. We have a full-review coming out this week, and that's the theme of the video. Unlimited is great, but not quite as damp as the Unleashed. Rossignol Holyshred/Blackops 98 or Black Crows Camox are comparable, but we're pretty enamored with the Unleashed 98. Have fun!
