Experience 98 Skis 2012: The Rossignol
Experience 98 Skis are powerful all-mountain chargers that combine beefy construction with a surprising versatility and ease-of-use for strong expert skiers. AutoTurn Rocker combines a slightly rockered tip and tail with traditional camber underfoot to create a ski equally at home floating through deep pow or laying trenches on groomers. On hardpack and variable snow, the traditional camber delivers power, energy and edge grip while the rockered tip and tail dramatically improve turn initiation. Combined with a 98mm waist, the AutoTurn Rocker profile blasts through chop and crud and floats through the silky deep. Ski pow all morning, rip groomers in the afternoon, all on one super-powered ski. Whether charging glades, bowls or hardpack, the Experience 98 is a true one-ski-quiver and a new breed of all-mountain high performance skis.
AutoTurn Rocker has a high camber underfoot with a low rocker in the tip and tail. Camber underfoot delivers power, energy, and edge grip for groomed run performance, and subtle rocker in the tip and tail delivers easy steering and effortless speed control for versatility in any terrain or snow type.
Extended Sidecut continues beyond contact point where tip and tail rocker start. As speeds and edge angles increase, more sidecut is engage for powerful full-length edge grip. At lower speeds the edge angles sidecut is less engages for more maneuverability and ease.
Traditional sandwich construction with vertical sidewalls creates direct edging pressure.
Cascade Tip is made up of varying shapes of metal and fiberglass laminates at staggered lengths make the tip lighter to improve the swing weight and provide quick, adaptable turn initiation. Unique layered shapes control tip torsion, smoothing turn initiation and improving full edge contact.
New, wider binding platform designed for wide skis (80mm+) increases leverage, enhancing power and precision.
Control Beam combined with Twin VAS absorbs vibrations and facilitates rebound by direction pressure to the extremities.
A wood core with fiberglass laminates provides ultimate response, feel, power, and durability. Titanal in the core adds incredible longitudinal and torsional rigidity.
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.
