Rossignol 2019 ski reviews
The Rossignol Hero Elite ST Ti is regularly selected for review by PROSKILAB and frequently wins an award.
Last year, unfortunately, it came with the "Konect" plate, which was geared more towards a recreational skier. It offered a good compromise between performance, accessibility, and fun but disappointed testers looking for exceptional performance.
This year, it’s back, but it is... Read on
The ski is identical to Dynastar's Speed Master GS R22.
Already a medal winner last year, the Hero Master with the R22 race plate reaffirms its superior performance this year.
Along with its twin the Dynastar Speed Master GS R22, this ski outperformed all the other skis in the "Giant Slalom" category where we are looking for high-performance skis that are still accessible to recreational... Read on
The Pursuit 800 Ti from Rossignol is a very versatile ski.
It can be skied less aggressively, provided you are still carving, as it is slightly less at ease in skidded turns. The ski is fun, easy to use, smooth, and versatile.
But when you pick up the pace, the ski shows its true character – which is super solid! As you put more and more pressure on the ski, it seems to give back more and more.... Read on
Rossignol's Pursuit range is a great success. In 2019, the Pursuit 800 stood out in the men's “Cruisers” category and won a "Best Performance" award. The Pursuit 600 CAM (Carbon Alloy Matrix for those in the know) placed quite well in this very exclusive selection of the best skis on the market.
The Pursuit 600 CAM is extremely accessible because it is so easy to pivot and to... Read on
The Famous 10 from Rossignol offers an excellent compromise between performance and comfort.
Overall performance is excellent. The ski is made for carving.
Its performance is predictable in all conditions and the ski is "easy to master" and "easy to handle," according to the PROSKILAB testers. They particularly liked the ski's ability to easily transition from skidded turns... Read on
We have been testing Rossignol's Experience line for many years now. Our testers have frequently criticized the skis for being too focused on skiing the frontside because they had oversized tips and a lot of shape.
In January 2018, Rossignol told us it had taken our comments into account (and no doubt those of other reviews as well). They showed us the skis in the new Experience range, which had straighter... Read on
The Hero Elite LT Ti from Rossignol is an excellent ski that won the "Best Performance" award in 2018 in this category, but this year it struggled because of the R22 race plate.
In fact, even though the ski's main features are the same, the testers were surprised that the ski didn’t really hold the line, which was disconcerting, and that it lacked solid edge grip. We think there was a problem... Read on
