Back by popular demand...Ladies and Bears, May I re-introduce to you the all new Nordica Enforcer.
Yes, the legendary name returns with a modern flair. What did you say, a modern flair? Do tell. Well, since you asked...The original Enforcer was introduced in mid 2000‘s and had a great run, the Enforcer created a tremendous following with it's wood/metal 98mm construction and wide all mountain design in a time when skis that wider were still considered to be just powder skis. The Enforcer not only broke the established rules but created new ones. As other manufacturers played catch up, Nordica kept raising the bar by evolving the Enforcer and then sharing its mold with the redundantly names Hell & Back Hell & Back. The Hell & Back was the 98MM wide offering in Nordica’s Side Country series...but as successful as it was, and it was, people kept asking for the Enforcer...where is the Enforcer..we want our Enforcer...Well, Nordica listened. Even when they were designing and producing the new acclaimed NRGy series, they were also secretly making another Enforcer...and not just a warmed up rebadged old mold with “Enforcer” slapped on it or even a metal NRGy100 (which would be a sweet ski too) but an all new design to make even the most die hard Enforcer enthusiasts forget about the first generation version.
The new Enforcer, with it's completely new mold, does take some design cues from other successful Nordicas like the hammerhead tip design from the benchmark 113mm Patron/Helldorado design, they kept camber underfoot and a solid early rise tail with some..not much but some taper. Sidecut runs past the contact points and at a 16.5M for the 177cm, the Enforcer will be one of the more athletic skis in the 100mm segment. What is an “athletic” ski? A ski that is powerful and efficient yet not muscle bound and requiring a lot of effort to ski but will perform to it’s maximum.
The Nordica Enforcer PROTO that I received have some one off black/white graphics which really stand out. In mounting them up to maximize the performance I used some all mountain goodness FKS185's.
The Enforcer will be part of my long term test fleet and I will be adding on snow reports in this thread as the rest of the season progresses. Now if this has peaked your interest enough, Nordica will be offering an early release of the Enforcer in mid February with 2016 graphics shown at the top of the page in the red to blue design..
When I get the Enforcer on snow, I will be adding reviews and updates so stay tuned!
