Rossignol's Experience line covers six waist widths, ranging from 98 mm to 74 mm. Testers gave the versatile 88 mm-waisted ski high scores for carving. "It tears up the frontside and can switch gears to off-piste too," commented Maybon. "A fun ski to play on," said Beidleman. The sandwich laminate construction combines wood and lightweight basalt, which makes it slightly softer flexing than the titanal-reinforced 98. AutoTurn Rocker blends tip and tail rocker with camber underfoot while Rossignol's Extended Sidecut continues beyond the contact point where the rocker starts, allowing edges to engage more as edge angles increase. "Not a snappy turner, but it's solid like a tank," said Mahon.
