The Good: Everything
The Bad: We didn’t find any


Verdict: Big results. This was a rocking ski in every style of turn, and in every place where we skied it. “Oh to start the day with a winner,” and “Rossignol does their job to a smile on a skier’s face,” were among the comments from a series of happy testers. Two testers said the stiffness of the tail affected the performance in the bumps. But otherwise it was loved, and applauded, everywhere else.


Pros: amazing edge grip, really great carver,very good maneuvrability,energic

Cons: Top sheet is fragile

This is now my principal skis after 2 demo days where I tried about 10 different skis.Usually, I spend most of my time in the woods...but this year, because of the lack of snow, I spend more time than usual on the groomed ( which I usually found boring;but not anymore!!!). I call them my fun skis because they make me appreciate more the groomed ( great carvers) but I can still do anything else with them!

Super on groomed,steeps,in trees and more than ok ( I still have to improve) in moguls.


p.s. I'M 6 feet and 200 lbs. I usually pick up skis about 178-182 cm. I tried the 170 and the 177 and decided to get the 170 because everything I said in this review apply to the 170 but not the 177 (its like 2 different skis!
