The Santa Ana line got changes on all 2020/21 models reducing the amount of metal for lighter weight(1 tapered sheet only now). More tapering of the metal sheet in the wider models(less metal overall) and less tapering of the metal sheet in the thinner models like the 88. So, even the 2021 Santa Ana 88 got revamped on the Women’s side as you mentioned. More length options now available too. All 2021 Santa Ana models should be a bit more accessible and lighter now.Are you sure? I own the Santa Ana 88, both the 2020 version last season and now the 2021 version for this season, and they did make some slight changes to the wood core and the titanal (1 sheet vs. 2.) They ski similarly, but I do notice the extra lightness of the 2021s now that I've gotten several days on them. And it's a good thing.
For anyone who wonders about the Santa Ana 88, everything that has been said here about the Enforcer 88 applies. A really great blend of playfulness and stiffness/stability that make them an easy choice on almost every day.
Enforcer 100 and 94 changed this year(carbon chassis, True Tip, more sizing options with length adjusted rocker added as well as some added stiffness and weight) on the men’s side. New Enforcer 110 and 115 seemed to have got the Carbon Chassis and True Tip treatment without much fanfare from Nordica.
Enforcer 88 and 104 just top sheet changes for this year as they have all of the above construction features upon release last year.
