The Nordica Hot Rod 74 is a mid-cost all-mountain ski, geared toward intermediate level skiers. Nordica promotes the Hot Rod 74 as offering control and stability. This ski's carbon Energy Frame construction is geared toward energy transfer and sturdy handling. The partial sidewall design of the Hot Rod 74 ski helps to improve the edge grip of this ski, as well as energy transfer. This ski has a double wood core, which helps to make this ski responsive, as well as durable. The Hot Rod 74 is topped off by XCT bindings, which are available in sizes five through ten. This ski differs from the identically priced Hot Rod Fuel ski in that the Hot Rod Fuel ski features slightly larger sizes, and has a Full Twin V Active construction instead of the Hot Rod 74's Energy Frame construction, so that its focus is on speed rather than handling. The Hot Rod Fuel has the i-Core rather than a double wood core, which makes it 17% lighter than previous models. Both of these models differ from the higher cost Igniter Ca model in that the Igniter Ca model has a Full Twin V Active construction with partial sidewalls, so that it is a combination of the Hot Rod 74 and Hot Rod Fuel models. There are size options available for the Nordica Hot Rod 74 all-mountain ski.
