Rossignol Experience 98 Skis 2012

Rossignol 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.
Shape
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.
Construction
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.
Flex
A wood core with fiberglass laminates provides ultimate response, feel, power, and durability. Titanal in the core adds incredible longitudinal and torsional rigidity.
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Carving
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Carving
    For those that like the classic feeling of laying a ski over on edge and arcing a perfect turn, carving skis are what you want. These skis have narrower waists and shorter turn radii for edge to edge quickness and responsive turn initiation and exit on groomed runs and hard pack. The beginner-intermediate skis in this category are designed to make learning how to turn as easy as going from pizza to French fries.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Partial Twin Tip
    Partial Twin Tip
    Partial twin tip skis have a tail that is turned up, but not as much as the tip. This gives you the ability to ski backwards and back out of tight spaces, but these skis are mainly designed to ski forward.
