Up for sale is this hardly used, deluxe race ski package built for speed and precision. All the gear was bought brand new by my brother, used for two seasons (2002 and 2003) and have been in storage ever since. They were recently tuned-up, waxed, re-fitted, and sharpened. Needless to say, they are in fantastic shape and ready to hit the slopes!
The skis are Rossignol T-Power 9X PPS Racing Skis with T-Dualtec technology. The are 181cm and are yellow, black, and silver. These skis were manufactured in 2002 to showcase Rossignol's new technology: The Power Pulsion System (PPS). PPS is Rossi's answer to the question, "How do you reduce length while retaining performance?" PPS features an integral metal plate under the binding for better edge grip and stability. There's also an elastomer sandwiched between the plate and the ski, which, as the ski bends, sends energy (via rails built into the top of the ski) toward the tip and tail. The idea is to enhance ski-to-snow contact throughout the length of the ski. These skis were skied by World Cup men in a short 181 cm length. And because of the rails, which extend out from the plate, "It's a totally different looking ski," said product manager George Couperthwait. They also have some pretty sweet tip protection.
The bindings are black Axial Race 140 Bindings with Rossi's patented Axitec technology. They are mounted on the PPS plate which is pre-drilled and can easily be set up for any boot size. The bindings and skis feature comprehensive Dualtec Integral 3000 and Dual VAS (Vibration Absorption System) for a smoother, more controlled ride.
The boots are the complimentary Rossignol Cockpit Race 1 Professional Ski Boots. These boots are recommended for an intermediate to expert level skier. The boots are size 28.5 (US size 10.5), however they are VERY narrow. I wear size 10 to 10.5 shoes on a daily basis and I am unable to get my wider feet into them! I would recommend these narrow feet, or for a size or two smaller. They feature Carbon Fiber Reinforcement as well as (4) fully micro adjustable buckles. They also boast a thermo-adjustable fit liner and are in great shape!
The whole package was manufactured in 2002 in France. It was purchased for around $1,200 as a new package at a Minneapolis-area ski shop. Everything has been stored indoors and unused (but maintained) for several winters. These skis are just itching to get back onto fresh powder!
$200 gets you the whole package, with shipping at an extra cost (based on distance in the continental United States)
Feel free to make an offer!
