SKI TEST – SKI REVIEW #2 – Nordica Enforcer 100
SKI REVIEWS –FAT OR NOT FAT- WHAT TO BUY?
by Chino Martinez
On our first review we explained how to choose the best skis for you.
We have to remember a couple of things that will help how to identify and choose the right model for your best ski day.
With all these thoughts we are going to review the top #2 ski of our list for Men All-Mountain-Wide Skis:
#2: NORDICA ENFORCER 100
Before starting with this review, I’m going to talk about the ski factories.
Today, the ski factories must work together with ski brands because factories are manufacturing several brands under the same roof.
Back on the day, mostly in Europe, each brand had its own factory to develop its own skis.
Today things are different, and this is not a secret. One factory can manufacture several skis for different brands. This is not a problem nor a bad thing. In this case, the Nordica Enforcer 100 shares the same factory with the top #1 ski of our review, the Blizzard Bonafide 98.
Is this a good thing? Surely yes!
Should there be a reason for these two skis being number one and two of our list? Good factories produce good skis and that its it, period!
Good factories have scale economies and can afford better and more quantity of technicians, machines and technologies.
But this is not a review of factories, but of skis, so let’s go to what is the core of this post:
The Nordica Enforcer 100 features two sheets of metal sandwiching a full-length wood core, kept together with a rock-solid sidewall construction.
Overall this is a great ski, it is another ski that is good in almost everything.
It has great construction, great dimensions and is a good combination.
Shape and construction remain unchanged from last season.
The Enforcer’s Blunt Nose Tip Shape is designed to give you flotation when it’s a powder day, smooth turn initiation on a firm groomer day and deflect negative vibrations when the snow is chunky.
This is the terminology that Nordica likes to use:
- Blunt Nose Tip Shape
- Energy 2 Titanium Construction
- All-Mountain camRock
Strengths: Crud Performance, Hard-Snow Integrity;
Overall Rating: 4.28 / 5
Tip / Waist / Tail (in millimetres): 133-100-121
Lengths (in centimetres) 169, 177, 185, 193
Radius (in metres): 18.5
