2006-07 Rossi Skis

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I found this on the IPSO website:

"Rossignol offers an exclusive, individually customizable program including customer relationship management (CRM) for the winter 2006 season - "Mutix Technology" - two kinds of skis in one. With the help of interchangeable flex adapters owners of the new "Radical R11 Mutix" can make DYI adjustments to customize different turn characteristics, thus adjusting the same pair of skis for various conditions. Depending on snow and grooming conditions the "Short Radius Arms" (short flex adapters for slalom-like turns) or the "Long Radius Arms" (for giant slalom turns) can be attached directly to the skis near the binding with the help of a wrench."

A guy in the locker room a couple weeks ago had a pair . Nice looking ski. The technology kind of reminds of the Taylor Made R7 golf club . I couldn't understand a word Tomba said! Anyway,

I'd like to try them and see how they ski. I wonder if they will make different models having different flexes(stiff- soft) .

I remember the Fritzmeyer ski but never skied it. I have a feeling these skis won't be cheap.

What, you can't speak Italian?

The Multix does approximately what they say it will. My take is that it would make a nice ski for a club racer or a beginning master's racer where they are not picky about qualifying sidecuts.

I demoed 2 pair of these a few weeks ago and wrote up a review of them on this site. Search for 07 Rossignol in the title on the Gear Review forum.

Not sure if it is a gimmick or not yet, as I only got to ski the short arms, no other set up to see if the same ski handled differently or not.

I've heard the street price is going to be about $1100 with NO bindings included.: I saw a shop owner skiing it this weekend, and he didn't really have much to say about it one way or the other beyond the expense, and that Rossi was requiring a big buy to have them, and he wasn't interested if they were going to be that expensive.

I don't know - seems kinda "gimicky" to me. Cool idea, but will it really work as an all-around racer? I guess we'll see soon enough...

I read somewhere (can't remember where) that the mutix will be available in 165 only.

Hello there, I actually have a pair of these lenght buy Rossi so the staff can demo them. I"ve skied them several times and they feel great. Not as agressive as a racing ski or a 9s oversize but pretty close to an 9s oversize. The "arms" that change the radius are a bit hard to change to my taste (takes time and they tend to jam) but else then that it really changes the attitude of the ski. Nice and balanced ski. Lots of fun. I can tell you right away it will for sure retail for around 1400-1500$ canadian with bindings. Very interesting concept. You will see Elan and other companies come out with their own approach later next year. Very good looking ski.

If it's close to the 9s oversize you told me all i needed to know.

I think this ski will put a big dent in Atomic Metron sales. Great concept being able to have both a 11 meter ski and a 15 meter ski. The tool kit with the arms will be appealing to many.

I see it being a huge seller next year despite its price point. Plus its got an appealing color scheme. If your're going to pay $1400 with bindings it better look good to, Right?

Concept or not, you won't hear of me spending that much money for any ski let alone this one.

Nice ski. I've tried it in 165 and 175. Liked the 165 much more. I've only tried the long arms though, so I can't say how much of a difference they make.

Well I saw and skied them in both a 175 and a 165 so, they are not only available in the 165 as you heard. Further more right on the Rossignol Web site they list 155, 165 and 175 cm lengths for the USA site.

The sidecut does not change, only the flex pattern. Frankly, people who have a quiver (meaning serious skiers) should find this rather silly. It is inconvenient to change the arms (much easier to go to your car and grab another pair of skis) and the sidecut remains the same regardless of what you feel like doing on the snow.

I would be amazed if a serious skier would buy into this. A racer would probably laugh at this gimmick.

Yes you're right.
