Rossignol S3 Skis 2012

Rossignol S3 Skis 2012: The Rossignol S3 Skis are a narrower-waisted version of the S7. Sharing the same Powder Turn Rocker as its big brother with low camber underfoot and high tip and tail rocker; the S3 is a versatile all-terrain vehicle. Powder Turn Rocker provides amazing floatation, tracking and an efficient angle of attack that gives skiers effortless steering and instant speed control. At 98mm underfoot, the S3 is a functional and lightweight all-mountain powder ski that is incredibly maneuverable, easy-to-steer and forgiving. Whether using an Alpine, AT, or freeheel bindings, the S3 has the quickness and agility perfect for poaching secret stashes in and out-of-bounds. It is a versatile adventure ski and the ideal lightweight powder tool for skiers who love exploring all of the nooks and crannies on the mountain.
Shape
Powder Turn Rocker has low camber underfoot while tip and tail feature high rocker. Camber underfoot delivers power, energy, and edge grip for groomed snow. High rocker tip produces more floatation and effortless powder skiing, high rocker tail is pin-shaped for easy steering and instant speed control.
Centered Sidecut features a unique tapering tip and tail with short sidecut directly underfoot. Deep radius gives edge grip and power underfoot while short length of sidecut allows easy steering and playfulness.
Construction
Traditional sandwich construction with vertical sidewalls creates direct edging pressure.
Spoon Tip technologyis a spoon-shaped tip for maximum floatation; tip profile is tapered for effortless tracking in deep snow.
Flex
Wood core with fiberglass laminates provide flex, power, and stability and make the S3’s lively.
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
    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.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • 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.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
