Nordica Enforcer 94 Skis

What it’s good for

This is an all-mountain ski that is heavier than other skis for more power. The weight can come at the cost of some maneuverability, but the Enforcer is a ski that still performs really well, despite its mass. The benefit of this heavier ski is that it can soak up vibrations a bit more effectively. When you're pointing it downhill and the snow surface is a little rough, these will crush it.

What it’s good for

The tapered shape from tip to tail gives these quick edge-to-edge performance, making those groomers and turns a lot of fun! This ski has a powerframe titanal plate mid-ski, giving these bad boys a good amount of rigidity to help you transfer that energy from edge to edge, and it also contributed to dampening and crud you may blast through. To boost the dampening and vibration absorption abilities of these skies even further, Salomon used Carbon Powered C/FX and Cork in the construction. These are going to give you a fun and smooth ride all over the mountain, especially on groomers. This is what can be considered a one-ski quiver, seeing as it can do a little bit of everything and excel!

Really popular ski in the past few years. Super lightweight, easy to maneuver quickly, 93 underfoot means you can get edge to edge quickly but still float in a little bit of snow. The construction of this ski makes it light but stiff so it'll go fast and cut through the crud.
