Rivertrancedwrote a review of Nordica Enforcer Ski on March 14, 2012
I have been out on these skis for 4 days in variable conditions from ice to slush to the deepest snow central CO has seen this year. I've ridden them in the bumps, trees, bowls, and groomers, and done a little hiking with them. I loved them from the start, but wanted to give them a little more time just to be sure. Now I'm sure. I just came off a 184 Mantra, which I skied on for about 4 years and 200+ days until I finally broke them. I never thought I'd love a ski more than those and was sad to see them go. Based on recommendations I'd heard, I picked up a pair of Salomon Sentinels at the beginning of this year and skied on those a handful of times. I didn't like them in most conditions (I wrote a review on those if you want more details), so traded them in for the Enforcers. Being that the Enforcers were 4 mm wider than my old Mantras, and I spend about 50% of my time in the bumps or tight trees, I decided to size down to 177, which was the shortest ski I've used in a long time. I figured the stability and stiffness of the ski would combine with the width to handle anything I could throw at it even at that size, and I was right. The shorter length makes these things super quick in the bumps and trees, but the generous shovel still floats in a couple feet of fresh. It also rips at speed on groomers, where I love the playful energy and have found no chatter. If I was skiing Utah size dumps on a regular basis, I'd probably own a fatter ski as well, but for CO this ski makes the perfect one ski quiver. I am 6'3 and 175, and a type III+ skier.
