Rossignol 2018 ski reviews
All the reviewers agreed: like the Speedzone Master from Dynastar, Rossignols Hero Master R21 WC 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 dont include FIS competition skis. The Hero Master R21 WC is striking for its great grip and stability, both judged exceptional by the reviewers, so you can zip down the runs at... Read on
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, its the perfect ski for this programme, distinctive for its overall behaviour and, above all, its precision turns, sliced with a scalpel. In long turns, its behaviour is similar to a giant ski, and we have the impression that were "on a rail track" according... Read on
It's less efficient and less character, but more accessible than its cousin, the Speedzone 10 Ti. The Pursuit 800 Ti deserves its place among this selection of best skis on the market. In a category where were looking above all for consistency, the ski certainly fulfills its contract. Its accessibility, performance, comfort and versatility result in a well-balanced blend that will give a lot of enjoyment. Its a one-quiver ski, incredibly tolerant and docile. The reviewers loved the easy, very intuitive carving that will help average riders to... Read on
The Experience 88 HD is an amazing all-rounder on the piste with great turn initiation, performance, grip and rebound. It's reassuring and well-balanced, and exceptionally enjoyable. The ski is very versatile and alternates carving and skid turns, and small and long turns with ease. Accessibility is remarkable in skid turns. Once aligned, you just need to lean to enter the turn. Happy cruising, and especially enjoyable on soft snow, the Experience 88 HD can step up the pace and is responsive when you give it all youve got". In freeride, its... Read on
Tested this year with the "general public" "Konect" plates rather than the R21 competition plates, the Hero Elite ST Ti from Rossignol did very well. True, it lost the "Best ski" distinction it got last year with the competition plate due to a decline in performance, but it made up for this with its remarkable user-friendliness and exceptional comfort for a slalom ski. The ski is very consistent, quite flexible (but relatively... Read on
In this category, were looking for skis that are accessible to the weakest learners but that can help slightly more experienced riders move on to more technical turns. Here, Rossignol's Pursuit 600 fulfilled the first part of its contract but fell somewhat short in the second. True, even the weakest riders will find the ski very easy to handle. In particular, the ease of rotation and floating effect will please all those whore still finding it hard to change direction. Skid turns are consistent and easy to steer. On the other hand, the ski is... Read on
The PROSKILAB reviewers came back after riding the Famous 10 by Rossignol with an enormous smile on their faces! The ski is an incredible performer, especially in turns where it really excels. Its a very versatile model that can vary turn radius and style. But its mainly the playful and dynamic behaviour that sets it apart from its rivals and that riders will love, at least, as long as theyre willing to get actively... Read on
True, it came last in a demanding preselection for the best skis on the market, but the Rossignol Sky HD has kept its predecessors character. Very flexible, especially at the tip, its remarkably easy to handle and will even go slightly into overdrive, with great float in deep snow up to intermediary speeds. But when we step up the pace, this flexibility makes it much more difficult to steer. Its nonetheless a good ski that will suit a less sporty public looking for a very accessible leisure ski that will help them to tackle natural features.

Rossignols Temptation 88 HD proved too demanding to do well in this category where were looking for a good compromise between grip and the capacity to cut through crud, accessibility and comfort. On the whole, the ski performs well, especially carving on the piste. However, the reviewers found it very stiff and hard to bend, and it requires physical and technical prowess to be exploited correctly. Rossignols target is expert riders... and we agree! Recommended for heavier, athletic riders with good technical skills.
