Nordica Enforcer

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Could I handle the nordica enforcers?

I have read that they are mostly expert skis. I am a level 7-8 skier. And have been skiing on very narrow beginner skis. I am 6'0 152lbs. Are they to wide (98mm underfoot)?

Is 177 cm too big for me?

177 will be fine,   if you are a 7-8 then you should be able to handle them fine.   Are you in the west?

Yeah, I live in SLC. Maybe Im more of a 7 cause i started skiing last year but im skiing all black diamonds, not doubles though. Im getting a season pass to Alta this year.

Why do you ask?

Where you ski the most makes a big difference in your ski choice. A great ski for Alta would probably be tough for you to handle in the Poconos.

You could ski the Enforcer.     The question is: Is the Enforcer the ski you will want to be skiing at L7ish in Alta.   

 

It is not the ski that will help you the most in fresh snow at the start of the season.   It is not the ski that will give you the biggest variety of line when you have your legs at the end of the season.

 

 

BTW, you're not at L8 until well after you've stopped looking at the run difficulty markings and started only caring about the prevailing snow and usage conditions.

With the info that you provided I think you could ski the enforcer and be fine.  However you may want to look at other ski's a little narrower under foot that will actually make you a better skier. Too many to list but here is a list of my personal favs,  the Prophet 90's are a great ski,  Salomon Enduro (84 under foot but skis everything awesome, this ski is an unknown dark horse that I have skied several times and like very much).  K2 Aftershock, Blizzard 8.7, Volkl AC 50,   Volkl Kendo.    Spend a year on one of these and then get a powder ski next season for the big days.    Some may disagree but I think refining you skills on a skinnier ski will make you a better skier (also keep in mind that none of the ski's I listed are skinny, just skinnier.  :)

Thanks for  your thoughts, could the rossignol phantom sc80 fall into this category? A little narrower but from what i can gather still floats decent.

Have you got any opinions on the ski?

Sorry SBAX, I am not the person to ask for recommendations on designs more recent than the Enforcers.    I haven't skied many of the new rockers and what I have skied I absolutely hated.

the nordica enforcers would suite you fine. They are more of a charger compared to some of the other 98mm skis, but at 177 and skiing out west at above 6 feet tall, you'll be fine. You may want to actually go longer. Though being your second year and if you can get  a good deal on them go for it.

I found them on a local classified ad for 350 w/ 200dollar bindings only used twice. tempting

If they're in good condition you can't really go wrong with them.  I managed to demo them last year (on hard snow and bumps) and was impressed.  They were the widest skis I'd been on to that point, but with a 19m side cut (or so) I hardly noticed.  I was on the 177cm, and would move up to the 185cm, but I'm over 200lbs.

 

Were the skis only used twice, or the bindings?

I think the bindings are a year newer model of this Salomon STH 14

They'll be fine.  Have fun!

ya thats a good deal. those binds are highly desirable.

 

post #17 of 18

Yep.  Buy them.  If you don't like them I'd be happy to take them off your hands.
