Rossignol Children's Skis

Hi -

 

Does anyone know the differences pros/cons between the Rossignol Hero Junior Multi-Event ski and the Rossignol Hero Kid X ski?

 

I  am looking to get a 110cm pair for my son and not sure which one to go with. The Multi-Event does not come with a binding while the Kid X does.

 

Rossignol Hero Junior Multi-Event

111-67-97

12M radius

 

Rossignol Hero Kid X

108-67-94

10M radius

You asked basically the same question once before and the answer is still the same, buy whichever one is cheaper.

Thanks - I had asked about various kids skis before and now that the ski shop recommended these two I was looking for feedback from parents/coaches who were familiar with either based on buying them for their kids or coaching children who skied on either ski. It seems like there is little difference (I believe the Multi Event has wood while the Kid X has foam).

Depending on how specific your needs are, we bought our little guy 110cm skis from Level 9. Their house brand is called Defiance, I think. The skis plus bindings were amazingly inexpensive, maybe $80 brand new including shipping. Our kid has been thrilled with them and wants to keep skiing them even though they're a little short for him now.

Have no first hand experience of Rossi ME, but "multi-event skis" are generally a little sturdier than kids skis. The label multi-event stems from racing, meaning that the kid can use it for both SL and GS. This one has wood core -- a first "real" race-ski for learning to race and ski on edge. It will reward proper technique.

On paper the Kid X looks like a regular childrens ski with cap construction and foam core. Probably a more "forgiving" ski that is a little easier to skid and plow, but not as rewarding for a little ripper.

Thank you. Much appreciated.
