  1. 2021 Nordica Enforcer 100

    Preview: 2021 Nordica Enforcer 100

    Nordica is reinventing its Enforcer collection once again. Even with the flagship Enforcer 100, very little has carried over other than the name. In a segment where someone is always poised to take the crown from the incumbent, Nordica is not going to give up the title "Best in Class" without a...

    Idris Skis - The Renard

    It's a brand I've not seen mentioned on here, and even though I don't visit that often, I thought I'd share my review of a pair of skis from one of the guys behind the Bro skis of a few years ago. At the start of the season I was thinking that it was time to move on from my 10 year old Head...

    Individual Review Laser AX - Impressions from a new user

    After reading everything I could on Stockli Laser AXs from many of the enlightened skiers on these forums, I finally bought them (in 175). I had seriously considered Head Rallys, but when I was offered a decent price on the Lasers, I couldn't pass 'em up. I thought I'd throw in a few brief...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Rossignol Experience 94 Ti vs 2019 Völkl Mantra M5

    This is the Cage Match that I think will be most requested for this coming season because it involves two skis that have been completely reinvented for 2018-19. The only thing that carries over from their previous incarnations is their names. This is going to be the toughest of the matches for...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Nordica Navigator 90 vs 2019 Rossignol Experience 88 Ti

    The upper 80-90mm category is one of the more contested and important categories, period. There are a lot of really good skis here, from every manufacturer, and really no bad choices; because of these skis' versatility, there are very few wrong choices, either. You could make a case for almost...
