Product Info

Rossignol Sickle Skis 2012: The Rossingol Sickle Skis pick apart big lines and backcountry booters with swagger and style to spare. The Sickle slashes powder and crud with ease, butters natural features with style, and inspires confidence in most any condition. Spin Turn Rocker is a 100% full rocker shape that delivers unsurpassed float and playful manueverability in powder and backcountry shred-mode. This banana camber shape gives the ski a silky, buttery feel and compliments the full length Extended Sidecut, allowing them to rail on hardpack as well. With WRS and Jib Tip technology, the Sickle has a smooth, even swing weight when going big, while the beefy wood core construction provides a damp and stable landing pad. The Sickle is a superhero ski with a playful versatility and surfyness that will leave you grinning ear-to-ear while claiming every line in sight.

Product Details

Shape

Spin Turn Rocker has a full rocker shaped like a banana with no camber underfoot that makes the ski playful, easy to spin, and adds pop, energy, and float in deep powder.

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

Construction

MiniCap ROSSITOP construction strengthens the top of the ski increasing durability. 30 degree sidewalls improve swing weight and reduce ski’s overall weight, enhancing edging and durability.

Jib Tip gives the ski a rounder tip shape and a rubber layer absorbs shock and makes it more durable.

The Jib Absorption System has a rubber layer between sidewall and edge for shock absorption with an extra thick layer sandwiched in the tip and tail to absorb landing shocks and increase durability.

Flex

Poplar wood creates a light and lively ski with excellent ski-to-snow feel and superb damping characteristics. Fiberglass laminates provide power, flex, and stability.

WRS (Weight Reduction System) aligns core fibers with the ski’s sidecut shape, placing more underfoot and fewer in the tip and tail.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

        Please note that the dimensions for the 174 cm length are different to that of the 186 cm length whereas EVO has them listed as 140-110-133 for both.

        The dimensions for the 174 cm length are actually 135.9-106-129.4

          Comments about Rossignol Sickle Skis 2012:

          This is my first powder-dedicated ski for me, and the third addition to my now three-ski quiver. Perhaps 6 days logged on them last season at Kicking Horse, skiing the bowls and the chutes, and each day was awesome. Felt just as comfortable running the tracked out at the end of the day as they were on the morning freshies. But take heed, no matter what you read about them, they're not a good choice for the hard-pack. On a whim one day when my park skis were in the shop, I took both the Sickles and my 2011 MSP's out to compare each on the jumps at COP in Calgary. Conditions were classic Calgary mid-winter 100% man-made boilerplate - the result of near daily snowmaking during a two-month period of desert-like dryness mixed with day-time temps that swing repeatedly from -20C to +10C and back to -20C, sometimes on back to back days. The Rossi's were a little scary compared to my MSP's that day. The MSP's are fully cambered, 96mm underfoot, and the Sickles sort of felt like I was strapped to bowling balls instead of skis after first taking a lap on the MSP's. Perhaps on softer snow the Rossi's are still a winner, but I'll stick to the MSP's for mountain groomers and my TNK's for the park-only days when skiing in the city.

            I used as all mountain ski. It is on the softer side but you still can charge on groom run, very playful ski, love it.

            Comments about Rossignol Sickle Skis 2012:

            Bought these for powder skiing at Silverton (and heavy snow days at other places). They worked nicely, able to float and carve easily. One drawback is the weight of the ski. With the wood core, they are heavy, when hiking to the fresh stuff. I like the width of this ski too, I'm still able to catch an edge on the flats and carve in moguls without too much work. I rented K2 obsethed the previous year at Silverton, which are a much wider ski. Had to really muscle through on the flats to catch an edge, a real pain. Nice overall ski for pow pow. However, go with a thinner ski unless you are planning to spend most of the day in the deep stuff.

              Comments about Rossignol Sickle Skis 2012:

              The bomb...simply put the most versatile ski I've ever ridden. I'm 6'0, 150lbs dripping wet, aggressive, ride the 174, I have a pass at kirkwood and take these into the Carson Pass BC with a pair of Marker Baron's.
              Minimal rocker throughout doesn't cost too much traction while skinning and rips in the trees as well as when put on an edge. Super snappy, I feel as if I'm on a pogo stick when activated. I mounted mine -1cm and have never had any tip dive from manky tar pit pow to good old over the shoulder blower. The harder you push them, the better they respond. It's like they know what you want to do before you commit. Wide enough to hang in the deep, but not too obnoxous to hang on boilerplate or hard pack.
              Garunteed you love 'em.

                These things are pretty frickin' sweet. Great floatation, amazing balance, quick and lively, and can surprisingly tackle any terrain. I may never go back to a cambered ski again. Light weight construction makes them great skis for the backcountry too.
