TommyTHas anyone had a chance to ride these yet? Please give me all the details of what you all think.
Greg_KOwn a pair and have about 10 days on them last Spring when they first came out. Bought them off the rave reviews on Ski Essentials and Blistergear.
Started last year with Sir Francis Bacons that were sold to a buddy after 3 runs-too light and too soft for my liking. Then had Moment PB&Js which are good in softer snow but float wasn’t great in powder and not the greatest in hard snow. Came back from a trip out West using the PB&Js and got the Enforcer 104s.
I’m 6’2”/175 and ski the 186cm with the mount +2 to make them more playful. The skis are a revelation! Can charge crud, carve firm groomers like a much narrower ski at 60mph effortlessly yet a blast in trees/bumps at slower speeds and very good float for their width. Not a light ski but don’t ski heavy at all and that weight just helps with stability and in when things get bumpy. Stable in the air is very good too with the mount moved up. Not really a “park ski” so the only weakness would be it’s not really meant for skiing rails as it just has traditional edges and race bases.
Most other twin tips that are this easy to ski don’t usually have such high all mountain performance. I can use them daily in the East Coast or West Coast. Does everything well in all conditions. The only ski similar to it’s “groomer/all mountain” performance would be the Fisher Ranger 102FR but the Fisher is stiffer so not as forgiving or as fun in bumps and it’s lighter than the E104 so not as good through crud.
TommyTNice!!! Thanks a lot for this detailed review. I myself am 6'3" 210 and ski essentials told me I should stick with the 186 as well. Where did you ski out west? I'm close to Tahoe area and itching for Squaw and Mammoth to open.
