2016/2017 Rossignol Temptation 84 ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s Frontside Category.

“A super carver at all speeds,” says Rodman of the Rossignol Temptation 84. Testers rated the 84-mm-waisted ski highly for carving, slightly lower for playfulness. As one of four Temptation series skis, the 84 has a minicap sandwich laminate construction with paulownia and carbon. Air Tip technology—a milled-out honeycomb pattern in the shovel—and tip and tail rocker are both designed to increase maneuverability, while Rossignol’s Extended Sidecut intensifies edge grip potential as edge angles increase. “This groomer or bump ski meets the needs of a variety of skiers—but it can chatter at high speed,” says Brown.
