Manufacturer's Description

nocta
unsinkable - playful - lively

Developed by Julien Regnier, a pioneer in reverse camber technology, the nocta has made it’s mark in the freeride world and acquired an enviable reputation.  Combining a generous sidecut with a dynamic flex, it offers great handling in any conditions.  Designed for powder skiing, it can still hold it’s edge on hard snow thanks to an 18 metre turn radius.  Both powder gun and a multipurpose ski, the nocta is a ski of the future.

Thanks to the double beak technology, the Nocta is both manoeuvrable and powerful.  This performance is due to a long and progressive front rocker allowing it to be highly efficient in deep snow, a true classic camber in the centre and a more moderate tail rocker which gives it an excellent stability at high speed.  Light and well-balanced, centre-mounted, this master of backcountry freestyle is also the perfect weapon for big jumps and switch drop-ins.

2 sizes :
The 188 : an perfect powder day size.  The characterisitics of a double rocker demands that the ski length is increased, a 188 therefore corresponding to traditional ski sizes of between 170 and 180 cm.

The 178 : Prefered by lighter riders and ladies, this ski corresponds with tradition ski lengths of between 160 and 170 cm.
