Nordica Enforcer 100 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments
Another legendary ski, the PROSKILAB 2016 reviewers were extremely impressed by the Enforcer 100 from Nordica which has won a "Best ski" distinction in the past.
The ski is frequently selected in the PROSKILAB review and continually does well but it lost a few places this year due to the arrival of new rivals (especially the Expérience 94 Ti) and softer snow conditions.
The piste/off-piste mix is still very well-balanced. The ski performs well on the groomers. With good flex distribution, the reviewers noted its easy turn initiation, its turn performance and stability at high speed. In long turns, the ski grips hard and is "smooth and comfortable."
Off-piste, the comfortable underfoot width (100 mm) boosts its float and capacity to ride through tricky snow. This relatively stiff ski performs well in the crud, apart from the tip that's a bit too soft and at times tends to brake (we already noted this behaviour last year).
Some reviewers regretted a lack of agility due to its weight (around 2.2kg per ski) and noted some fishtail behaviour.
The Enforcer 100 is a great choice for intermediary to excellent riders who love long stretched-out turns on both the piste and in freeride.
- Versatile both on and off piste
- Excellent behaviour on soft snow
- Fluid in long turns
- Not so hot in short turns
- A bit too much flex in the tip which hampers rides through the crud

Who's it for?
The Enforcer 100 has gone home with many awards – and smiles – thanks to its legendary all terrain performance. To achieve an extremely smooth and stable ride, the ski combines a full wood core with two metal sheets.
As well as dampening vibrations, this design improves the ski's stability and responsiveness.
Finally, the early rise tip and rocker in the tail as well as the traditional camber underfoot ensure better flotation in soft snow and boost confidence in variable conditions.
In short, it's a modern ski that allows you to ski where and when you want. Extremely manageable, powerful and agile, the Enforcer 100 is ready for anything.
