2011 Rossignol S3 Freeride Ski


Pros: awesomeness

Cons: they don't make me biscuits and gravy in the morn'

These skis are my bread n' butter. I take them all over the continent and they just work. They work hard. Everywhere I go. I dream of heli-skiing alaska, and I want to take these with me, though depending on terrain conditions, I could have been smarter about binding locations. Oh well. Skiing is always a learning experience. If it isn't, you aren't doing it right!


Pros: Lightning Fast Turns, Stable, Floatation

Cons: None

These things, with Amptek Technology, turn on a dime in any condition. They just amaze me everytime I use them. I ski east coast and so I was scared at first to ski a 98mm waist. The gondola baskets arent even big enough to fit these... but they turn faster than the S86 (86mm waist) and probably faster than my Bandit X's @ 70mm. But because of the rockered tail and the 98mm waist, they also float very well in Powder. Best ski I have ever used/demoed. I have them mounted with Marker Griffon's

2011 Rossignol S3 Freeride Ski

For expert and aspiring expert skiers looking for the perfect all conditions and powder ski. With a moderate 98mm waist, the S3 skis easier in all snow conditions because of its unique, AmpTek rockered camber design. AmpTek combines traditional and reverse camber for more versatility, rebound, boost and ease-of-use than conventional skis. The S3 floats and steers well in powder, holds and carves on hard snow and noodles through trees and bumps effortlessly. AmpTek – Delivers power and edge grip in crud, and floatation in powder Vertical Sidewalls – Puts direct pressure on the edges of the ski for powerful, precise edging Rebound Tip – A layer of Visco in the tip and tail of the S3 helps to absorb shocks and reduce over-flexing. Wood Core – Provides ultimate response, feel, power and durability
