Product Info

The Rossignol Experience 98 is a rarity - a ski that will lay down race-like GS carves and is still wide enough to handle the fresh. This is a perfect choice for the all mountain expert skier with a technical background who doesn't want to give up power or edgehold in their daily ski. Featuring Extended Sidecut to put down even more edge when the ski is laid over, Rossignol's Cascade Tip for improved swing weight and a solid wood and titanium sandwich construction, the Experience 98 will blow you away.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Auto Turn RockerFor all skiers looking for a more versatile, easier skiing experience in the broadest range of snow and terrain conditions. Camber underfoot delivers power, energy, and edge-grip for performance on groomed snow. Subtle rocker at the tip and tail delivers easy steering, easier carved turning, effortless speed control and maximum versatility in all terrain and snow types.

Sidecut

Extended SidecutSidecut continues beyond contact point where the tip and tail rocker start. As speeds and edge angles increase, more sidecut is engaged for powerful full-length edge grip. At lower speeds and edge angles the sidecut is less engaged for more maneuverability and ease.

Shape

Cascade TipVarying shapes of metal and / or fiberglass laminates are at staggered lengths to create a lighter tip. Unique layered shapes control tip torsion, smoothing out turn initiation and improving full edge contact. A lighter tip improves swing weight for quick and adaptable turn initiation.

    Comments about Rossignol Experience 98 Skis 2014:

    If you're looking for versatility at a high level, these skis are it. They absolutely scream on the groomers, handle the chopped stuff and were fantastic in the freshie thru the trees. I'll keep my super-fats for the uber deep stuff, but otherwise, this is now my go-to ski.

    Comments about Rossignol Experience 98 Skis 2014:

    I took these out for a day for demo at Mt Hood this week. I had done my research and really wanted to try these. There was a ton of new snow so I was able to test them in the powder.
    I was most impressed with the carving ability of this ski. For 98 underfoot it carves better than my other skinnier "carving" ski. Even in the powder it seems like it wants to turn.
    I couldn't get a good idea of how it does in the powder because it was a little heavy and chopped up. I do know that it cuts through the crud very smoothly. I almost bought the skis but I didn't like the bindings that were on them. My overall impression was I am looking for an all mountain ski and this seems like a carving ski that can also go in the fresh snow. I still might buy them, just need to wait for a deal.
