Best ski 2018

PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

The reviewers all agreed: the Speedzone Master is a "fighter jet"... a real Giant ski, carved for very high speed and long turns. It's hard to find a better performer in this category if you don’t include FIS competition skis. The Speedzone Master is striking for its great grip and stability, both judged exceptional by the reviewers, so you can zip down the runs at speeds you previously only dreamt of. Once in the turn, the ski is incredibly stable and grippy. As one reviewer said, it’s as if you’re on rail tracks. The fast and easy turn entry and very energetic exit round off the picture nicely. It’s a must. However, offsetting the incredible delivery and excellent behaviour in long turns, the Speedzone Master is less happy in short and skid turns. It’s a true Giant ski, an excellent tool that's highly recommended for good to expert riders/competition skiers aiming above all for performance, but who don’t necessarily want an FIS ski.

Review: Pros

  • Excellent overall performance
  • Good grip, turn performance, exceptionally reliable pressure
  • Outstanding stability
  • Easy turn initiation

Review: Cons

  • Ski requires good technical and physical prowess to be properly exploited
  • The very grippy tail hampers skid turn performance
  • More demanding in short turns

Manufacturer's remarks

Developed in the Rossignol race room workshops, the SPEED WC MASTER is the best on the market for performance, power and output on the piste and between the stakes. The SPEED MASTER has two huge advantages; its design and production were inspired by World Cup skis, without the drawbacks of FIS radius regulations. It has a race-inspired structure, with a modern radius of 16/18/21 and 23 m. It’s incredible fun, with output and efficiency the key words. The skis offer incredible turn initiation, with precise and powerful steering, and exceptional rebound exiting turns! Its stability on hard pack and icy snow is awesome, the ski is glued to the ground but remains user-friendly and playful for good to very good riders. The ski comes with an R21 WC interface for perfect energy transmission. The metal inserts provide fast coupling and release of bindings for ski upkeep and frequent traveling.
