  1. The 2018 Nordica Enforcer Pro is a beast. At 115 mm underfoot, it is the widest ski in the Enforcer line. It's also the stiffest and it skis like it. These planks do not like to pussyfoot around. Point them and send it! We took these out for a spin on the Front 5 at Cannon. Conditions were a few inches of fresh over chalky hardpack. These skis carved very well for a ski of this width, and they soaked up the bumps and crud. These are an excellent ski to just bulldoze through variable conditions at irresponsible speeds. But they are suboptimal for picking your way through crowds or tight spaces. Who is this ski for? Expert skiers who take no prisoners. The kind of people who only get sick when there's at least two feet of powder. Fall line skiers. We have a hard time imagining this is going to be a very popular ski in New England. We think they're a great tool, but just not exactly practical for a Eastern skier, and certainly not economical. Do you watch ski movies and think "That looks fun. I could do that!" then go ahead and buy these. If you think the professional skiers in the movies look crazy, then skip these and move along. View full entry

  3. We had a chance to try out the Nordica Enforcer 110 at a demo day in March at Cannon. Overnight a few inches of fresh had filled in refrozen bumps giving us a versatile sample of conditions. These Enforcer 110 feels just like it's little brother the Enforcer 100, and that's a good thing. The extra bit of width really helps will the float and makes this a crud-eating machine. This is an excellent choice for a powder day ski in New England. It soaked up the variable bumps on the Front 5 at Cannon with aplomb. This is a recommended ski, but expect to pay a premium. With a $850 MSRP and a history of selling out, Enforcers don't come cheap. Groomers Eventually you'll need to take these skis back on the refrozen groomers, but do not fret. The two sheets of metal give the Enforcer 110 more edge grip and bite than you would expect. This is not a carving ski, but it'll do the job on the hardpack when you need it. Sizing There is fair amount of rocker, so don't be afraid to size up. You'll be glad you have the extra length.

  5. The Noridca NRGY 100 occupies the middle ground between a carving and freeride ski at 100 mm underfoot. The pintail shape is flat to give you carving feedback, but also not hang you up in the bumps. It has a single sheet of milled out laminate giving it a decidedly medium flex. These are no noodles, but also won't punish you and demand speed. There is a fair amount of early rise in the tip, but the tail is flat. At 100 mm underfoot, these are not dedicated powder skis nor are they dedicated carvers. Where they excel is mixed conditions. This is an excellent choice for spring days that start firm and end up sloppy. They'd also make a great choice for a trip out west, or especially to the Alps where conditions can vary wildly with elevation.
