2021 Nordica Enforcer 100
Radius 17.3m@ 179cm
For 20/21, Nordica has applied the lessons learned in making the latest iterations of Enforcers to the first-born of the family. The alterations include a construction change and the ability to adjust the contact points (where the rocker and camber zones meet) for each size. Core profile and sidecut are also tweaked with each length, so the new Enforcer 100 calibrates performance by size. The biggest change in on-snow comportment between the ancestral Enforcer and the newbie is in the forgiveness and ease of use departments. Not that the old boy has been gutted – far from it. But the new kid seems to transition to its camber zone more smoothly and while it’s still lively off the edge, it’s easier to decamber in its longer lengths. It’s unusually easy to feather the edge or switch from carving to drifting to match the terrain. The acid test for an all-terrain ski with aspirations of greatness is a powder-covered mogul field that was untouched… two hours ago. The Enforcer 100 looks at this dumpster-fire of a ski run with the preternatural calm of the Buddha. It’s not worried if you’re not. Don’t be afraid to floor it, for the 2021 Enforcer 100 still has the wood-and-metal guts of a GS race ski. Intimidation is not in its vocabulary. This is why you get an all-terrain ski in the first place.
