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