Product Info

Rossignol Experience 98 Skis 2013: The Rossignol Experience 98 Skis are the weapon of choice for the expert all-mountain skier who carves hard and likes to mix it up between hard and soft snow. Rossignol’s unique combination of Auto Turn Rocker, with its 70/30 ratio of camber to tip and tail rocker, Extended Sidecut, and Cascade Tip combine to let you rip in any conditions. The harder you push Experience 98 skis, the more they deliver.

Product Details

Shape

Auto Turn Rocker gives you 70% traditional camber underfoot for power and edgehold with 30% low rocker at tip and tail for easy steering and speed control and versatility in all snow types.

Extended Sidecut continues past the unweighted contact point, allowing you to engage more edge as speed and edge angles increase.

Construction

Wood/Titanium core

Sandwich Laminate construction provides ultimate stability, power, and durability. Traditional sidewalls apply direct pressure to the edges for increased precision and edging power.

Dimensions

19.9 m @ 180 cm 139/98/128 (all sizes)

Additional Features

Cascade Tip staggers lengths of different materials in the tip to lighten swing weight and control tip torsion.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider. BINDINGS NOT INCLUDED.

    Comments about Rossignol Experience 98 Skis 2013:

    I demoed this last season for a week and was blown away and even more blown away to pick them up on evo for 50% off. These performed in all conditions: good hold on steeps/ice, very responsive once you get them up to speed and decent float in wide open spaces. I probably wouldn't recommend these for people spend most of their time in bumps or trees.

      I have been skiing for 40 years in all sorts of conditions. This is the best all mountain, all condition ski I have ever owned. Will still pull out the fatties on powder days because I have them, but I wouldn't need to. This is a great all around ski for the advanced intermediate and up skier.

      The skis were delivered promptly. I have skied for over 40 years and have never had the pleasure of new skis that so thrilled me. From the first turn, I knew they were special. They do everything...ice, crud, powder, bumps/moguls, smooth groomers, etc.

          Comments about Rossignol Experience 98 Skis 2013:

          I have tried many 2012/13 skis and the Experience are the perfect fit for me. I just broke in 1/2 my Volkl RTM's on a bump run in Tahoe so I demoed a bunch of different skis. I save my Nordica Helldorado's for the deep pow. These Rossi's are perfect for everything else. They handle ripping big GS style turns to short, quick turns thanks to the gentle rocker. Crud is no problem as the width allows you to blast right through it. If you are lucky enough to get some fresh powder while out on the Mtn the Experience 98's will handle it with ease. I have run them at Sun Valley and Tahoe and they were terrific at both locations in all conditions. LOVE them!
