Rossignol Temptation 88 Skis - Women's 2014

You'll be charging harder than ever with the Rossignol Temptation 88 Skis. Featuring an Auto Turn rocker profile and Cascade tip design, you'll be amazed at the edgehold these skis have on the groomed, and the wide tip and subtle rocker in the tip will float your boat in the soft snow as well. The Tempatation 88 is that rare ski that exceeds expert skiers' expectations on hard snow and still lets them crush it outside the ski area boundary in soft snow.
Rocker Type
Auto Turn Rocker - 70% traditional high camber underfoot with 30% low rocker at the tip and tail. Camber underfoot delivers power, energy, and edge-grip for performance on groomed snow, while the subtle tip & tail rocker 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
Basalt - This lightweight woven fabric provides rigidity
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/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • Turning Radius: Short
    Short
    < 16 m radius is best for carving.
  • Core/Laminates: Basalt, Wood
  • Tail Type: Flat
    Flat
    This is your traditional tail, designed to have edge contact all the way through the tail, and only designed for skiing forward. This is also preferred for alpine touring, as you can stick the tails of your skis in the snow.
