Rossignol Experience 98 Skis 2014

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.
Rocker Type
Auto Turn Rocker - For 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 Sidecut - Sidecut 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 Tip - Varying 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.
Core
Wood
Laminates
Titanium Laminate - Provides ultimate rigidity without adding too much weight
Sandwich Laminate - Wood cores with high tech laminates provide the ultimate in stability, power and durability.
Sidewalls
Traditional - Apply direct pressure to the edges for increased precision and edging power
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

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: 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.
