I didn't realize that some skis have different top sheets in Europe vs the US and/or perhaps I wonder if in other places too?
I wonder if this is common.
One ski in specific I noticed was the rossi experience 77 and 80 also. The 14/15 and the 15/16 versions of the skis are the same ski in the US except for different tops sheets. But what I found was that this years (15/16) topsheet here in the US is what last years topsheet was in Europe. I've only noticed this by accident while searching for skis on-line and of course sometimes over seas shops pop up.
But I wonder if this is quite normal for other brands. I also wonder if sometimes perhaps the skis may even be different too even though same models. This is not the case with the rossi model skis I mention as they are the same ski regardless of topsheet. But I wonder if some skis perhaps are both a different in topsheet as well as also slightly different in construction even though same model and same year.
Is it common practice to have different sheets in the US vs other markets? and is it ever a different construction? Just something that sparked some curiosity.
