Nordica Enforcer Free 104 Skis

Nordica Enforcer 104 Free takes its initial design and performance from the award-winning regular Enforcer Series. When it came out a few back, we knew it would be a Ski Essentials tester favorite, and we continue to be impressed with each new model year. These skis continue to turn heads, as do all of the Enforcer skis, with the 104 as a versatile freeride option for a wide variety of expert skiers. For eastern skiers, the 104 serves well as a powder ski or a soft snow day, but it's surprising how well it performs on firmer snow and how great it carves. For western skiers, or for those who live in snowier spots, the 104 is a great daily driver or one-ski quiver as floats as well as it carves, and does everything else in between as well. Built with a wood core and two sheets of metal, these skis hold up to adverse conditions and terrain quite well, and the more dramatic and playful rocker profile allows for fantastic flotation for when the snow gets deep. Its playful but still powerful so it can blast through crud or mank. East, West or abroad, the Nordica Enforcer Free 104 Skis will deliver for expert skiers who want to rip the entire mountain, no matter where the adventures take them.

I am 6'3" and 220lbs skiing at an intermediate level. Should I be looking at the 186 or the 191?
Question by: Jason on Feb 2, 2022, 10:58 PM
Hi Jason,

Go for the 186 cm length. Due to its build, plenty of ski for you and the shorter length will give you better maneuverability and less swing weight.

Answer by: Dave Hatoff on Feb 3, 2022, 1:24 PM
Greatly appreciate the answer to the sizing question. One more question, is the 2023 model the same as the 2022 model except for the graphics? Thanks again.
Question by: Jason on Feb 3, 2022, 2:55 PM
HI Jason!
Yes, same great ski with a slight graphics update!

Iam about 5ft 6 in 165 lbs looking to buy the 104 enforcer free consider myself as mid advanced doing some cat skiing in tight trees fairly steep not more than a foot of softer snow at a time would a 165 be a good length for the tighter turns ? I ski a 176 Atomic 90 on groomers great but don’t do that well off piste with it Thanks
Question by: Kaarlo on Feb 25, 2022, 9:51 PM
HI Kaarlo!
I think that sounds like a good length for you. It's pretty stable, so there's no real need to size up in order to gain performance. Have fun!

Advanced level. Is it ok to buy 191 lenght?
Question by: Damjan on Mar 4, 2022, 3:13 PM
HI Damjan!
It is okay, it's more about preference than stats. I'm 6'2 225 and I prefer the 186, but that's just me.
Answer by: SkiEssentials Expert on Mar 7, 2022, 10:26 AM
What ski would you recommend for someone who loves the Enforcer 104 Free, but wished it had just a little more stability at speed?
Question by: Whit on May 9, 2022, 3:42 PM
Hi Whit!

If you want more stability at speed you'll most likely need to look outside the freeride category at some other skis since the 104 free is one of the more stable options for a playful freeride ski. One ski that quickly comes to mind is the Rossignol Black ops Sender Ti. This ski is somewhere in between an all mountain charger and a freeride ski but is considerably more damp and stable than other skis in the same category. One other ski that's more in the all mountain directional category is the blizzard Bonafide. The Bonafide is a heavy duty charger that excels at maintaining grip and composure at even the fastest speeds. It's a little more narrow than the 104 free at 97 undrefoot but this adds the the stability of this ski. I would say check out the Sender Ti for something similar to the 104 free or check out the Bonafide if you just want to go fast.

Have fun!

Hey! I’ve been looking at this ski for a while and am going to demo it soon. For someone who’s 5’ 9” 178lbs, would you recommend the 172cm or 179cm? Strong intermediate going towards advanced skier. I currently have a 169cm QST 92 and sometimes feel I am going over the handlebars on that one so I’m leaning towards the 179 but wasn’t sure if that’s too much ski. Thanks for your help!
Question by: Armand on Nov 16, 2022, 1:01 PM
Hey Armand!

The 172cm is going to be the sweet spot for you. According to your height, weight and skier ability, the 179cm might be a little too much ski for you. The 172cm will help get to the advanced level that you're going after! Hope this helps!

Answer by: Lan Henel (Admin) on Nov 16, 2022, 1:45 PM
Deciding between 172 vs 179 for the 104 Free. I am a 5'9" 180. Currently ski Dynastar Legend88 173 for hard snow and current east coast soft snow ski that I am looking to replace is Solomon Shogun 182 (2012 vintage). I like the combination of stiff ski w/early release from twin. Ski VT and Maine and want a ski to bring out to Utah.
Question by: John on Nov 25, 2022, 11:38 AM
Hi John!

I would go 179 cm if I were you. The 104 Free is pretty manageable in longer lengths with the amount of tip and tail rocker. You could ski the 172, but I don't expect you'd have any issues whatsoever on the 179. You'll get better float, better stability, etc, without the ski feeling noticeably more demanding than the 172.
Answer by: Jeff Neagle (Admin) on Nov 29, 2022, 11:12 AM
Advanced/expert looking for 80% off piste directional ski (looking for tight trees, moguls, variable snow, etc.)...how does the 104 Free compare to your raving reviews of 98 unleashed? 5'9" 165lb 172 or 179? Many thanks!
Question by: Mark on Dec 27, 2022, 2:36 PM
Hey Mark,

The Unleashed 98 would be a better option for you especially with moguls and trees. The 104 Free is an awesome powder ski that is a daily driver for a lot of people out west. Both respond to variable conditions really well. and for sizing, Unleashed 98 (174cm) and Enforcer Free (172cm). Hope this helps!
Answer by: Lan Henel (Admin) on Dec 28, 2022, 1:15 PM
Hi, Im 5'7" weigh 135. I'm an expert skiier, can ski anything with 30 years experience. I'm assuming 172cm enforcer free is the best, 179cm seems way to big.
Question by: nick on Dec 28, 2022, 3:38 PM
Hi Nick! Thanks for your question, we appreciate you reaching out to us. Both sizes are in the expert suggested category on our sizing chart based on skier height & ability. At 5'7" you are in between our ranges, but at your ability you can consider yourself a 5'8" skier or at your weight a 5'6" skier. Either way, the 172cm may be the better option at your size for a more versatile performance offering great maneuverability, stability & float. You can view our ski sizing chart below as well. We hope that helps!

Hello! I’m 6’0” and 155lbs. I skied 2021 Enforcer 94’s a few years back and felt I didn’t have the weight or power to really work them. I’m an advanced skier that can ski whatever conditions the N. East provides. I demo’d the new M6 Mantras in a 177 and loved how well they held edge on ice and broke through the crispy top layer at Smuggs this past week, however I felt I may be limited based on weight in other conditions. Do you think the Enforcer 104’s are a little softer in terms of flex and might be my sweet spot? I’m looking for a 100+ under foot one ski quiver and am currently on 2020 QST 92’s in a 177. Any advice would be awesome!
Question by: Rob on Jan 17, 2023, 11:37 AM
Hey Rob!

Both will have the same amount of flex, but the Enforcer 104 has the edge on being able to carve with different turn shapes. The shorter contact points help with playfulness so you can shred the entire mountain. Hope this helps!
