Rossignol Temptation 88 Skis - Women's 2016

Rossignol Shop all Rossignol
For a hard charging lady that cannot make her mind up between piste, powder, and everything in between, Rossignol created the Rossignol Temptation 88 Skis. Intended for those who spend half their time on piste and the rest off trail freeriding, with this ski you no longer have to be torn between your corn and corduroy or powder and piste. Born on the race course but raised by freeriders, this ski features explosive pop for edge to edge performance while its auto turn rocker allows for effortless maneuverability, float in the soft stuff and even more float thanks to Rossignol's patented Air Tip technology. Succumb to the Rossignol Temptation 88 Skis and embrace the all mountain, adrenaline filled adventure that awaits.
Rocker Type
Auto Turn Rocker - The 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 Sidecut - Sidecut extends past snow contact point; as speed and edge angle increase more sidecut is engaged for unparalleled edge grip.
Shape
Air Tip - Rossignol's patented air-honeycomb design reduces the weight of the ski and dramatically reduces swing weight (by nearly 30%). This significantly enhances maneuverability, giving the ski an incredibly ultra-light feel. The reduced density at the extremities also concentrates ski mass underfoot, allowing the tips to rise above the snow surface for truly effortless floatation. Reinforced with ABS skeleton for increased durability and enhanced torsional rigidity.
Core
Light Wood - The ultra-lightweight paulownia wood core construction reduces overall ski weight by 30% for enhanced agility, maneuverability, and control with no compromise to downhill performance.
Laminates
Carbon - This is the Formula 1 of fibers, incorporated to guarantee superior skiability. Carbon fiber's light weight and mechanical properties are unbeatable, providing power, grip and acceleration. This fiber requires a lot of work to adapt cores and flexibility, but when mastered it offers unparalleled ski-snow contact and breathtaking performance.
Sidewalls
Maxicap Sandwhich - Very solid construction with reinforced topsheet for more durability. The sidewalls are angled at 30° to reduce inertia and overall weight while improving grip.
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
    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.
  • Turning Radius: Short
    Short
    < 16 m radius is best for carving.
  • Core/Laminates: Carbon, 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.
