Best performance!

PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

Voted "Best Ski" in 2017, the Rossignol Elite LT Ti continues to stand out, this year taking third place as well as the "Best performance" medal. Like last year, it’s the perfect ski for this program, distinctive for its overall behavior and, above all, its precision turns, sliced with a scalpel. In long turns, its behavior is similar to a giant ski, and we have the impression we’re "on a railway track" according to the reviewers. Turns can be steered to the nearest millimeter, pressure is rock solid and the ski is like a high-strung racehorse just raring to go. It’s awesome. With its general public "Konect" plate, the Hero Elite LT Ti is an excellent choice for good to expert athletic riders who’re looking for speed and long turns above all.

Review: Pros

  • Overall performance
  • Stability, especially in long turns
  • Precise turn performance
  • A ski that’s just raring to speed up
  • Loves long turns

Review: Cons

  • The Elite LT Ti is a touch more physical, especially in short turns

Manufacturer's remarks

Giant! The HERO ELITE LONG TURN (LT) Ti, the Rolls Royce of long radius skis, at last makes the efficiency of a Giant race ski accessible!
No need to jump through the starting gate to taste the joys of speed, it carves to the nearest millimetre and you can feel the G-force and pressure coming out of every turn!!
The ski features a top-level race-oriented structure together with all the latest Rossignol innovations.
The PROP TECH technology gives it more gradual torsional rigidity for greater control, easier turn entry and better energy transfer. The ski tip incorporates the Power Turn Rocker for faster turn initiation. The wood core sandwich construction gives the HERO ELITE LT Ti consistent stability at very high speeds.
Enjoy the sensations of a magic ski that releases all of its energy whenever you want, combined with incredible tolerance and comfort.
Up your game! You’ll be amazed at your capacity to dominate the piste as never before.
This year supplied with the new LOOK KONECT SPX12 & NX12 bindings for even greater sensation and energy transmission.

80% piste - 20% off-piste
NB: To get the most from our skis on the slopes, we recommend Rossignol ski shoes and LOOK bindings.
