Lay down the law.
It takes a firm hand to get the most out of the Nordica Enforcer 93 Ski, but if you're a take-no-prisoners skier who likes to rip down groomers, blast through crud, and dabble in high-speed pow turns, you'll start to understand each other pretty quickly. Nordica laid up the snappy ash and poplar core with two sheets of Titanal and prepreg fiberglass, which gives the Enforcer a powerful feel that'll put a smile on the faces of strong skiers, and built it with full ABS sidewalls for torsional stiffness and reliable high-speed edging. The low and wide Hammerhead nose gives you maximum edge contact when you tip the Enforcer on its side and reduces the chatter and vibration that can make a hard-charging thoroughbred feel a little bit like a skittish colt.
The new nose shape is important largely because Nordica built the Enforcer with an All-Mountain CamRock profile, which blends camber with a moderate tip rocker to smooth out chunder and provide an extra bit of float when conditions are soft. A tiny amount of rocker in the tail makes the Enforcer a bit more maneuverable when you venture off piste, and the sintered UHMW Electra Gallium base lets you push the speed limit whether you're shredding morning groomers to smithereens or gunning for first place in the season-ending Chinese downhill.

Nordica Charging Tridition
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Nordica has been making skis that ride aggressively and these are no different. I was able to demo these and several other models in their range and they all have the same feel and consistency which is a very good sign.
Groomers: One of my favorite skis to carve on groomed snow is a Nordica brand ski. The camber arc on this ski is stiff and responsive, The turn shapes are fairly fixed if your a lighter guy like me because its harder to bend the ski due to the core materials, but that means its really hangs on during hard turns that get the rider close to the snow. The advantage of this ski over others of this type is the rocker in the tip which allows it to sail over bumps instead of getting bounced around/deflected. This is defiantly the type of ski that you keep the edges sharp for those days when you want to go fast and turn hard.
Powder: Due to the stiffness of the ski and the camber rocker profile this is a stiffer fall line style powder ski. It will be able to float through light to medium powder and it really wants to go straight. This ski will be friendlier to more classically styled powder skiers. I would not recommend this ski for deep powder but if you ski in mixed conditions and light powder this is a very burly ski to charge on.
Bottom Line: This is a strong ski that demands your attention no matter what conditions your in but if you want to ski fast and aggressively it will reward you by allowing you to push your abilities to the limit without making the ski feel like it is past its limit.
Hard Charging fun
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
First and foremost these skis rip, hardcore. You can really throw them on edge, load it up, and it will show you a really great time.
With a generous early rise in the tip and just a hair in the tail these skis will handle any depth of snow with grace. The beefy camber underfoot allows this ski to handle really well on the groomed runs and keeps them energetic through any type of turn while providing a nice suspension for when the conditions get choppy.
I really enjoyed the 185cm length due to the amount of tip rocker they have, I prefer all of my skis longer and don't usually ski anything under 180cm. I am 5' 10" and am an expert skier. A great binding for these skis would be the Look Pivot 12. The din tops out at 12 and that's plenty for most people, not to mention that the 12's are a gray, and would look so killer with the gray scale mountain scene on the top sheet.
I'd recommend these skis to any expert level skier who is looking for a really fantastic all mountain charger that will be great in a wide variety of conditions. This ski may be the original Enforcer's little bro, but it can still rip just as hard as the original, and even better on the hard pack. These are a must buy!
