Product Info

Versatility is the name of the game, and the Rossignol Experience 88 BSLT Skis are the ace of the frontside. Whether you're an intermediate skier looking to keep progressing or a lifelong ripper looking for a firm snow ski; this is for you. Does it rail hardpack? Yes. Will it make you smile like a kid again? Also, yes. With an 88 mm waist the Experience 88 is nimble and stable at speed. Extended Sidecut ensures that the ski remains stable at speed and increases turning power when laid on edge. For hard and mixed snow conditions the Experience 88 BSLT has the power and stability needed to boost confidence and turn any day into a great day.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Auto Turn RockerThe most versatile rocker and camber blend now features a longer, more progressive tip profile for increased stability and hard-snow precision. Traditional camber through 70% of the ski retains the power, energy, and edge grip for confident on-trail performance; while moderate tip and tail rocker encourages effortless carved turns, easy steering and instant speed control in all snow conditions.

Sidecut

Extended SidecutSidecut extends past snow contact point; as speed and edge angle increase more sidecut is engaged for unparalleled edge grip.

Core

Poplar Core

Laminates

Basalt Laminate

Air TipConcentrates ski mass underfoot and reduces swing weight for improved maneuverability and effortless flotation

Sidewalls

Minicap Sandwich ConstructionYes, you can have both - sidewalls underfoot for edge grip and solid performance, cap at the tips and tails for lightness and durability.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

    Comments about Rossignol Experience 88 BSLT Skis 2016:

    Great skis!

    I just recently purchased the Experience 88's @ 180cm. I weigh 200 lbs and 5'11. Advanced intermediate.

    Superb short and medium turning ability for a 180cm All Mountain ski almost surprisingly so. The ski carves like a 170-172 cm carving ski. But has the edge hold of a 180.

    I took these on a trip to Central WIsconsin for a ski trip where conditions ranged from extremely icy and fast to light powder.

    In groomed condition you can just let these skis rip. You can really fly down groomers and use the excellent medium to short radius turns to control your speed even in the fasted of conditions. (Think wisconsin: Very cold, overcast, and heavy wet snow. The skis were also flexible enough for mogul/bump skiing with pretty good side to side action and control.

    On day two of the ski trip, we got 3 inches of fresh snow and the width of the skis provided just enough floatation to glide smoothly over powder. These skis would also be great for spring skiing w/ wet spring slush and crud.

    I'm glad I bought these skis. I would recommend them to a friend. Fantastic All-moutain ski.

      Comments about Rossignol Experience 88 BSLT Skis 2016:

      I don't know what the last reviewer's problem is, but he clearly isn't reviewing this product. These skis don't even come with bindings, so if he got the wrong ones, he didn't do his homework. Should've gotten the TPX version that come paired with matching Rossi bindings. Those bindings are expert-level, and go up to 12 DIN - which is plenty enough to break your leg, if that's what you really want.

      These skis are absolutely the best that I've skied in years. I'm thinking to buy a 2nd pair, in case something happens to my current ones - that's how good they are. Don't listen to haters. Try them, buy them, love them!

        Comments about Rossignol Experience 88 BSLT Skis 2016:

        I'm an old (55) former Far West racer/old school carver. I like to go fast, turn fast and fly through crud. These skis are the best I've ever had. They took decades off me. They're Fast, super responsive, super stable and they love to carve. I pushed them as fast as I could go, and they still had more. I'm blown away by this ski.

        Comments about Rossignol Experience 88 BSLT Skis 2016:

        I have skied the 88s in light powder, corn snow, moguls and firm to icy groomers. They are a great all around ski, easy to turn and handle the soft or variable snow very well. They were uncomfortably chattery going hard and fast on the hard pack groomed conditions if I reall laid into the turns aggressively.
