THE GOOD

  • Balanced
  • Versatile ski
  • Great mix of on and off-piste performance
  • Quick edge to edge
  • Adept at long and short turns

THE BAD

  • Did not own any one category
  • Rewards technical skiers
  • Not as consistent at higher speeds
  • Better off-piste

THE VERDICT

Testers who loved the Nordica Enforcer 93--and there were several--gave high praise for its balanced flex and performance in variety of conditions and turn shapes. Those few that didn't absolutely love the ski had a hard time finding one turn shape where they felt absolutely comfortable. This ski is going to be a huge hit this winter, but it might not be right for everyone on the hill.

FULL REVIEW

Nordica's Enforcer 93 is the All Mountain Category version of a cheeseburger, with no nonsense performance, all around appeal, and an immensely satisfying feeling after every run when you're skiing back to the chair. A slightly slimmer relative of the big mountain bullying Enforcer 100, the 93 is designed to have more hard snow capability, especially in the trees and bumplines where it excels. All Mountain camRock increases the ease of initiation and float, while titanal laminates the unique Hammerhead Nose add up to increased edge contact and control.

A few testers couldn't quite find their groove on this ski, giving high marks for maneueverability while still trying to find the perfect radius groove. The majority of testers loved it though, as will the majority of technical all mountain skiers on the hill.

How We Tested It

All skis in this test were tested over two days of introductory testing at Copper Mountain, Colorado, and three days of intensive head-to-head testing at Snowbird, Utah.

The products featured in this test have been loaned to the Gear Institute. For more on our policies regarding editorial objectivity and sample returns, see here.
