The curvy geometry (135-88-124) is one reason testers gave the versatile 88 millimeter-waisted ski high marks for carving. "Quick and responsive in short turns and bumps," Zawacki said. Other reasons—a sandwich laminate construction combines wood and lightweight basalt, which makes it slightly softer flexing than the wider, titanium-reinforced 98. Tip and tail rocker are added for maneuverability while Rossignol’s Extended Sidecut continues beyond the contact point where the rocker starts, allowing edges to engage more as edge angles increase. "Too narrow for good float in powder but this fun All-Mountain ski handles both groomers and off-piste terrain equally well," Witman said . "Exceptional stability and versatility," Bristow added. "Very fun on the 'roy and in the chop. Keep this ski ready for most days."
