On the heels of the 100-mm Enforcer's huge success last season, Nordica adds the Enforcer 93 to its Freeski collection for 2017. It's built just the same as the original Enforcer-an edgy, powerful, metal-reinforced construction mellowed by buoyant, terrain-smoothing rocker and an easy-smearing slight-twin tail. But its narrower waist makes it quicker and stronger on edge, letting Eastern freeriders in on the fun. 

Nordica's Freeski series includes six men's models of wide and midfat freeriders, with waist widths of 113 mm (Patron), 100 mm (Enforcer), 97 mm (Soul Rider), 93 mm  (Enforcer 93), 87 mm (Soul Rider 87), and 84 (the park-specific Bad Mind). The Helldorado, a metal-reinforced version of the full-fat Patron, was dropped from the collection this year, and two midfats were added: the Enforcer 93 and the Soul Rider 87. The top models are all proven tester favorites, and there's nothing gimmicky about the way they're made. All Nordica Freeski series models are classic laminate constructions with poplar/beech wood cores for durability and responsiveness, full-height/full-length sidewalls for powerful edge grip, and task-appropriate reinforcement (two sheets of metal in the Enforcers, for high-speed calm and edge grip; glass and carbon weaves in the rest, to keep them light and lively). All are twin-tips or slight-twins, with varying amounts of rocker for soft snow flotation and shock absorption, with camber through the midbody for edge grip and rebound energy. The Patron and the two Enforcers are powerful directional freeriders with medium-long sidecut radii (15.5 to 21 meters). The Soulriders are softer flexing, with tighter sidecuts and a more freestyle, bi-directional performance. The Badmind is a park and pipe model. All Freeski series models are sold flat (no binding). 

Only its big brother, the Enforcer 100, put up a higher average score in the test, and no ski scored higher in Overall Impression. The new 93 lets Eastern- ers in on the Enforcer fun with a waist width better suited to harder snow and tighter trees. There’s no gimmicky technology story here; just a straight- ahead wood-core, two-sheets, full-side- wall laminate layup. The key is a simple combination of shape, camber/rocker profile, and flex, plus whatever Austrian pixie dust hangs in the air at Nordica’s Mittersill factory. Supple, quick, power- ful—but easy to ski and easy to stay on top of. Testers said it’s a ski that makes you a better skier. Date: “Initiates with ease, stable at speed. Crushes powder, crud, and groomed. Well balanced and well weighted.”
