These are the perfect one-ski quiver in my opinion. I love charging and carving groomers, attacking crud, and snorkeling powder. These skis kept me smiling in every condition I've skied in thus far. I'm 5'10" 165 lbs riding 177cm riding these all over Snowbird. I could not recommend these enough if you're looking for a one-ski quiver. Go forth and enjoy the mountains! \m/
I firmly believe that you must properly match a ski to a skier, their abilities, and their style/technique. I grew up racing in high school. My local ski bump here in MI is man made hard-pack and boiler plate. I ski hard and I like a ski with strong edge hold and plenty of response/rebound. All of my skis have one or more layers of titanal in them (Kneissl White Star GS, K2 Mach SL, Fischer RC4 cheater radius GS, and K2 Recon). My skiing style requires something with a tip I can dive on and get a response.
On a recent trip to Breckenridge we had a hook-up for some free demos. They put me on some Armada JJ rocker tip/tail garbage. I hated them. They were great in the soft stuff, but they just didn't do it for me when I wanted more speed or tried to set an edge on a groomer. I spent the whole day watching a friend tear up the horseshoe bowl and lay trenches on groomers on the Nordica Enforcers he demo'd. I was jealous.
Fast forward two days and I had lined up a demo of the Enforcers for myself. They do not disappoint. Constructed similar to my race skis, flat top and titanal, they were eager to be driven. Dropping into the bowls off peaks 7 and 8 at Breckenridge they not only laughed at the soft stuff, they took everything I could throw at them when I straightened things out and rolled 'em on edge for some high-speed carves. With a 98mm waist they aren't the best powder ski, but they are good edge-to-edge on a groomer, they laugh at the crud, and they still hold their own in the soft stuff. They are flat out the best all-around ski I've ever had the pleasure of using.
In fact, three of us demo'd them that week. One bought a pair on the spot and the other two of us put them on our shopping list for next season. If you are looking for an all-purpose ski that can handle the soft stuff while still providing ample response and plenty of edge-hold on the groomers look no further. This is one bad-ass ski.
I think these are the skis I demo'd last...
I think these are the skis I demo'd last week, but I don't remember any writing in blue and I think the graphic was more swirly. Maybe I just forgot. Do these have a rocker bottom?
Sounds like you may have been on the 09/10 model where these are the 10/11's. They do have a bit of early rise to the tip for float in powder.
test run on the nordica 2011 185cm enforcer. lookers left of highboy at alta utah.
what a fun FUN ski!
This ski is very easy to ski in varied terrain. I rode a pair of 177cm on a day at Killington (1/18/11/) on everything from groomers to pockets of left over pow on the Flume and in the Toilet Bowl. I am 5'7 160. Thinking of buying this for an everyday northeast ski because I got old and do not ski boiler plate anymore.
Does the Nordica Enforcer have any early...
Does the Nordica Enforcer have any early rise or is it full cambered all the way to the tip?
I do not know. But I pushed on the shovel of these skis in heavey powder and they floated right up.
I love these sticks for North East woods
I bought these for my single quiver ski. I replaced a set of Atomic SnoopDads, but wanted more float. I ski in Northern Vermont and consider the groomers a way to get around between my tree stashes (or a way to get in good with the wife)
These ski's are awesome. They are great in 12' of powder, they destroy mixed crud and the are great high speed cruisers too. I have had a few knee injuries, and these are just the right stiffness to command the crud, but not so stiff as Mantra's, which make my knees hurt. The tail releases great and I can whip them around really well in the tight trees. I am 5'9" / 170lbs. Not that it matters but they look really cool with Marker Jesters.
does it all
Started the season slicing through ice like a slalom ski. Ran through a gs course on these without smearing a single turn and set the course record for the day. Ran waist deep pow on steeps and in glades. Moguls? No problem there either! If only it could go in reverse...
the name says it all - everyday I feel that I have the right ski for the conditions. Railed some early season groomers. Killed a few rope drops after the snow hit, even put in a little tour.
I'm on a budget, but couldn't afford every stick I wanted. Now I'm wondering why I need more skis (except a twin tip....)
2010/2011 Nordica Enforcer Ski
The Nordica Enforcer sticks with traditional sidewall construction and do-it-all dimensions to give you dependable, powerful performance in almost any conditions. With 98mm underfoot to keep you afloat, you can take it out after a storm without feeling hopelessly under-gunned. After the pow is gone, the flat tail, titanium-sandwich wood core and vertical sidewalls lay down the law on groomers and hardpack like an Old West sheriff. Hell, you might even say it's an enforcer.
