The NRGy has exactly the same waist width (and price) as the category-crushing Enforcer, but in building it Nordica put a premium on weight savings and optimal hardpack versatility. The result is a silky-strong GS-race feel that technicians will love on the groomed, but also a lightweight, spring-loaded agility that even the Enforcer would admire. Moffatt: "t's like two skis in one: a fast, stable cruiser on the groomed, then quick and friendly in the trees. A true one-ski quiver."

NOTES: The NRGy 100 is the second-widest ski in Nordica's NRGy series, with a 136 mm tip, 100 mm waist, and 120 mm tail. It also has the second-longest radius in the series, ranging from 15.5 - 21.5 m depending on length. This is a relatively powder-focused ski, though it's intended to hold up on all terrain. For something similar but skinnier, check out the NRGy 90 and NRGy 80. And for something similar but wider, check out the NRGy 107.

The NRGy series focuses on all mountain skis designed with versatility in mind. Whether it's groomers, powder, or whatever other snow you might find yourself on, Nordica says this series is built to take it all on well. Tips and tails have been redesigned for increased playfulness and maneuverability. I-Core Ti integrates titanal into the core, designed to stiffen the ski. This titanal core also has holes cut through it, forming a minimalist bridge-like structure that Nordica calls Torsion Bridge Construction, designed to reduce weight in place of other bulkier materials. All Mountain camROCK technology lifts the tip and tail up and off the ground, designed for floatation and extra maneuverability. If you like to ski a little bit of everything, this is one of Nordica's best series for you.

Nordica, based in Giavera del Montello, Italy, was founded in 1939. Its U.S. headquarters are in West Lebanon, N.H.
