2015/2016 Rossignol Pursuit 800 ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its men’s Frontside Category and awarded it an Editors’ Choice honor.

Rossignol redesigned the Pursuit series for 2015/16 and says the Pursuit 800 is where racing DNA meets lightweight technology. Testers concur, awarding it high scores across the board but highest in the Frontside category for playfulness. “It’s the liveliest ski in the group and incredibly adaptive,” says Zawacki. The 71-mm-waisted system ski has a poplar wood core with titanium, tip rocker and a sandwich Duracap structure. “This ski muscles through everything without needing much muscle,” says Smid. “It’s surprisingly fun on everything.”
