The i-Core technology of the Hot Rod Burner makes this ski 17% lighter than previous models, and so also helps you to reach high speeds. This core is all-wood, so that it also responsive. The 84mm waist of this ski will give you control, even at fast speeds. This ski differs from the lower cost Hot Rod Igniter Ca model in that it has the i-Core, though it lacks the Hot Rod Igniter Ca's partial sidewalls (which help with handling). This ski differs from the Hot Rod Igniter Ti model in that the Hot Rod Igniter Ti is constructed with titanium, which is both more responsive and more durable than carbon. The Nordica Hot Rod Burner all-mountain ski is designed with a multicolored graphic.
