2022 Nordica Enforcer 94 Skis
Nordica Enforcer 94 Skis
Any turn, any condition, at any time. That's really the best way to sum up the abilities and capabilities of the Nordica Enforcer 94 skis. These things are built with high-performance versatility in mind, and they succeed in almost all endeavors. We talk a lot about the mid-90's and their ability to cover all the bases in the ski world, and at the top of that class stands the Nordica Enforcer 94. Thanks to the shape, profile, and construction, the Nordica Enforcer 94 is one of the most well-rounded skis we've seen to come through our doors. On our feet, they live up to the hype. Thanks to the traditional Enforcer styling, the skis have that mid-range 94 mm underfoot width, and this is ideal for pretty much anything you'll encounter out there on the hill. You simply have to leave these skis in your car or on your rack and never have to think about whether you've got the right sticks or not. Same goes for travelers who agonize over what skis to bring on a trip. With the Nordica Enforcer 94, you're covered. East or west, north or south, these skis bring it wherever you bring them. Built with a wood core and two sheets of metal, these skis are as quick as they are damp, and as stable as they are smooth. Width-appropriate taper and rocker make them supreme floaters in the fresh snow, and they love to adventure and explore with the best of them. Skiers looking for the ultimate in versatility should look no further than the Nordica Enforcer 94.

Rustlers are more playful than Enforcers, so if that's a big priority for you, I'd lean that way. They're still great turners, not quite the dampness and stability of the Enforcer, but they're lighter! I think the Rustler 9 in the 180 will be a great choice. Fischer Ranger 94 FR is also worth a look. Have fun!
You could go with the 172cm ski and feel great on it. Super fun ski. Enjoy it.
I would go with the enforcer 100, the 100mm waist width will give more float in deeper snow and plow through the crud a lot better. The enforcers also have a lot more rocker than the Mantra so this makes them easier to turn through the trees and moguls. The mantras would give you a bit more stability and edge hold on harder packed snow but you would have to work harder to make tighter turns through trees and moguls. With all the rocker in the enforcers they ski a little shorter than they look but that 172cm option would be right in your range.
If you are already a Stockli fan, its really hard to steer you away from another Stockli, especially the SR 95. The absolute pinnacle of its class and the best all-mountain ski out there in the mid-90s waist width, bar none. There is simply nothing the ski does not excel in except for the deepest powder. AS you are already aware, you notice a difference in Stockli on the very first turn.
The Enforcer 94 is a nice replacement for that Hell and Back (which I loved). Enforcer is a bit heavier and stronger, but is super-grippy and stable. I think you'll love the edge control of the ski for sure. I'd say 186 is a good choice for sure.
The Enforcer is a bit heavier than the M6, but is a bit friendlier for an all-mountain ski. The M6 is powerful and precise, and that's about it, while the Enforcer 94 has more of an all-mountain personality to it. If you're looking for a bit easier of a time, I'd look to the 172 in the Enforcer 94--it's a stable ski so you don't have to size up on it. If you prefer longer skis, don't let me talk you out of it, though.
Kind of a toss up for backseat adventures. While the Stockli is more flexible in the tail, the Enforcer's more freeride-ish shape, rocker, and taper make it less hooky. I'd say the Stockli comes around nicer in a carved turn on hard pack for those same reasons. I'd rather ski the Stockli in the bumps, mostly for weight-savings, but it's pretty close. The precision and quality of the Stockli stands out for me, though. I'd say 172 in Nordica or 175 in Stockli. Have fun!
Your intuition is correct- The Enforcer is by the far the stiffest option out of the three ski you listed. The Mantra M6 would lie in the middle of three with also having metal in its construction, just as not as much as the Enforcer. The Soul Rider is a much different ski that the others, being an all-mountain, directional twin tip with no metal in it. (Wood and carbon make up its construction) All are extremely capable, one ski quivers for all-mountain. But the edge goes to the Mantra M6 which gives you the best of all worlds without being too stiff or too soft, sits right in the middle of three and really has no weaknesses in any snow or any terrain. A SE tester favorite.
Hope this helps and think snow!
No new changes, except for the top sheet. Great ski.
i am eyeballing this model as an addition to my powder ski's.
The question offcourse is which size to get... My height is 6'0 and
on a good day my weight is around 172 lbs. The skilevel is more to
the experienced side and i love agresive skiing all over the mountain.
Would the 179 of 186 suit me better?
Cheers for the advice!
I would say the 179 is a better choice for you in that ski. It's pretty darn stable so I think it's okay to go just under head-high for sure. The 186 would probably be a handful in tighter spots. Have fun!
Both seem to be good choice for one quiver ski judging from expert reviews.
My dillema is sizing. Enforcer 94 come at 179 or 186 and i think one would be too short while the otjer too long for an agressive, groomers, trees, chutes... all mountain but moguls 185lb 6foot tall skier.
Soul rider 97 comesnin at 185 which rocker type considered is close to my size.
Any opinions on the 94 sizing?
Hope this helps, let us know if you have any more questions.
There is no noticeable difference between the 20020 and 2021 Rustler 9 other than graphics. Exact same shape, dimensions and build. Still very approachable, responsive, and quick turning in bumps and tight trees.
As far as another ski that fits in the middle, we would Volkl Blaze 94- softer flex, similar performance, not as much metal and much lighter weight. But doesn't have quite the hard snow chops as the Blizzard and Nordica.
Hope this helps and think snow!
Love the website, incredibly helpful reviews. I am looking for a new resort ski. I’ve been skiing for 8 years, will ski anything and love to be in the woods. I currently use the armada tracer 98s as a one ski quiver including back country (with a shift binding). I love taking this ski into the woods on resort days, but am looking for something considerably more stable through groomers/through crud but will still allow me to get into the woods and have a relatively good time (if I know it’s going to be a full day in the woods I’ll just use my tracers). I am in-between the Enforcer 94s and Maverick 95s, but open to suggestions. I also looked at the M6 Mantras, but reviews make it seem that it might be too much ski for me. Would love your thoughts on which ski, and which length. I’m 5’ 10’’ 170 lbs, athletic build and on the 172 tracer right now, which feels right for the woods/touring. Thanks. Ben
The weight is the big difference between Enforcer/Mantra and Maverick. I put Enforcer and Mantra in similar range in terms of application, with the Enforcer just being a bit more friendly due to the more freeride-y shape. Maverick delivers amazing carving performance, stability, and energy, but with a much lighter weight. If you're looking for something with endless stability through all types of conditions, I'd go Enforcer, but for more maneuverability, the Maverick is fantastic. The Enforcer is more of a split from your Tracer, so that's something to consider as well, in a good way. I'd go 172 in Enforcer 94 as well. Have fun!
The main thing you'll notice about the 179 is a slightly tighter arc. If you are looking to make the ski a bit turnier, I'd go 179, but since you didn't have an issue with the 186, I'm not going to talk you out of a longer ski. Since it's a stable ski, though, you do not have to add cm to gain performance, making me lean to the 179.
Yeah, I'd go 165. I think the innate stability and power of the ski allows you to go with the shorter length, and you get the benefit of the shorter arc as well, so they become better carvers as well as being more maneuverable for off-piste activities. Have fun!
I think 186 is the way to go in that ski. Have fun!
The Rustler is the easiest and most playful while the Mantra is the most precise and demanding. The Enforcer 94 lies somewhere in the middle. I do think that the Rustler has a better range, so great for speed as well as crud, powder and woods. For a balance of all things, go Rustler, but for more performance without total demand, I think Enforcer 94 makes good sense there. I'd go 179 or 180 in either ski. Have fun!
I would stick to regular Enforcer, and go 94 if you're mostly on-piste. 179 sounds good to me!
Nordica Enforcer 94
Atomic Maverick 88Ti
He is intermediate-advanced, ripping down groomers, and has made great progress in moguls but is ready to advance to the next level. I'm leaning towards the Enforcers because it will be wider underfoot and will help him gain confidence in charging through crud and powder. On the other hand, he is very hesitant in glades/trees and might benefit from some more maneuverability there to gain confidence, so maybe the Mavericks?
For a ski that he can grow into over the next 5-8 years and become an advanced-expert skier in, which might you lean towards? He is ~185lbs and is working on his leg strength. FWIW I just got myself some Santa Ana 98s. We love a stiff ski.
If you're looking for a stiff heavy ski the Enforcer certainly fits the build. They're definitely difficult to maneuver at slower speeds due to the weight and flatter tail. But get them up to speed on a groomer and they really come alive. however, If he was looking to get into woods and bump skiing the Maverick might be the better ski here. Its much lighter and has a more forgiving tip and tail profile making it more maneuverable. You still get a dual metal laminate for edge hold and power, but the metal is thinner to save on weight. I would say for maximum attack and speed you should go with the Enforcer. For Maneuverability in bumps, trees, and off- piste, the Maverick will be the way to go.
