The 2012 Nordica Soul Riders are a soft, light weight, and super playful all mountain twin. They have full sidewall construction, but still feel light as a feather all over the mountain. These skis have a good amount of rocker, and even though they are only 97 in the waist, they actually float really well in all but the deepest powder. Even though these skis have so much rocker, they still feel pretty stable on groomers even at higher speeds. This ski is a perfect one ski quiver for anyone on the east coast who skis anything from the park, to groomers, to glades, to powder. I give this ski an 8/10.
