Rossignol Experience 98 Skis 2013

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.
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.

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: 19.9 m @ 180 cm, Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Metal, 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.
