2021 NORDICA ENFORCER 94 SKI REVIEW

Coming in hot on the heels of our 2021 Nordica Enforcer 100 ski review, is our comprehensive review of the all new 2021 Nordica Enforcer 94. While the width would quickly indicate that this ski is meant to replace the popular Enforcer 93 model, it would be a mistake to assume that Nordica simply added a millimeter to the waist and called it good. Instead, they treated the creation of the Enforcer 94 as if it was an entirely new ski, giving it updates like a carbon chassis and their proven True Tip Technology.
