Nordica Enforcer 93 (flat) review 2017
PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments
Although the Italian market is more focused on racing than freeride Nordica's Enforcer gave the PROSKILAB™ reviewers a good surprise last year. The Enforcer is fast becoming a benchmark ski in the All Mountain Fat category (or All mountain 30/70 at PROSKILAB™).
The ski got a "Best ski" distinction in the All Mountain 30/70 category, and did just as well this year!
We tested a 93-mm waist version (as opposed to 100 mm for its big brother) that puts it in the 50/50 category. The model was pre-tested in January 2016 and accepted for the PROSKILAB™ 2017 review.
The Enforcer 93 has kept most o the qualities of its big brother, notably its exceptional accessibility, with instant ease of use, and performance that is efficient, docile and reliable. The snow/ski contact is exceptional. The ski is very gentle and well-balanced, offering a lot of enjoyment, especially on soft snow. However, the reviewers felt that it lacked character and punch, partly because the tail lacked impetus. Performance falls off and becomes less concise at high speeds.
Off-piste, the ski is globally competent and efficient, despite its small waist size compared to its rivals.
Riders will love the overall efficiency, the comfort it offers in all snow conditions, and its docility and smooth performance.
The Enforcer 93 is an excellent ski that we recommend for average to good skiers who enjoy both smooth and very aggressive rides. They'll be pleasantly surprised by this model, which handles well and is extremely reassuring on all terrains. It doesn't have its big brother's character, however; the latter is a better option for expert freeriders.

Who's it for?
The ENFORCER 93 has arrived for skiers looking for a high-performing All mountain ski; the 93 for livelier transition and more precise carving on the groomed slopes. Its All mountain profile combined with its wood core and titanal blades make it a one-quiver tool to cover all conditions and a whole day's skiing.
