Rossignol Experience 88 HD Skis w/ Look SPX 12 Konect Dual WTR Bindings 2017

SKU: RE88KB17
With a brand new graphic and HD Carbon Alloy Matrix, the E88 is the do-it-all tool for skiers looking to dabble in all sorts of terrain, and split their time on the hill evenly between on and off piste. An award winner year after year, this ski really does ski exceptionally well with the help of innovative design traits like AirTip Technology, Auto Turn Rocker and an Extended Sidecut. The E88's will make amazing turns on groomers while the tip/tail rocker will allow for float in soft snow. Basalt reinforcement layers also help stabilize the ski and prevent chatter at high speeds. This ski can handle high speeds but also is quite nimble so we recommend the E88 to upper intermediate to expert skiers who ski a little bit of everything. This ski includes Look's SPX 12 Konect Dual WTR bindings, the perfect companion to the new E88. Whether you are cruising with your family or hitting it hard with your buddies, enjoy the versatile, Experience 88 for all time fun.

Description

Details

Ideal Target Skier: Weekend Warrior/Charger: These skiers were once upon a time ski bums, or very proficient skiers in college, then landed an internship that led to a 70 hour work week and a spouse and 2.5 kids. They are still great skiers, and ski hard every chance they get on steeps, moguls, powder... whatever they can get their hands on.

Carbon Alloy Matrix: A new generation of super fiber, Carbon Alloy Matrix integrates carbon fiber and basalt into an open diagonal weave, creating more elastic movement for dynamic mobility and uncompromising strength. Linear glass stringers absorb vibrations and add a balanced flex from tip to tail. The result is a finely tuned fusion of damp, planted to the snow edge grip and loose, playful maneuverability.

Air Tip Technology: Patented air-honeycomb design reduces the weight and dramatically reduces the swing weight of the ski by nearly 30%. This significantly enhances maneuverability, giving the ski and ultra-light feel. Reinforced with ABS for durability and enhanced torsional rigidity.

Extended Sidecut: A sidecut technology that Rossignol uses for its mostly groomer skis. When the ski is going fast and you're leaning further into your turn, more of the edge comes in contact with the snow the more extreme your angle is. This gives increased edge hold at higher speeds, while leaving the ski maneuverable at slow speeds. Pretty cool.

Basalt Layers: This stick sandwiches basalt around the wood core, which is lighter than metals like aluminum or titanium, but still offers extra stability and dampness.

Tip Rocker: This refers to the early rising of the tip to get the ski on top of the soft snow, rather than pushing through it. When the skis are held with the bases together, it will look like the tips are bent, and spread away from eachother. Tip rocker also helps skiers pivot the skis, making tight trees remarkably easy, and gives the ski a surf-like feel.

Square Tail: These skis have a square shaped tail, which adds stability to turns on hardpack as well as very steep terrain. Probably not a park ski, though :)

Expert Binding Choices: Some of the binding options (i.e. the Head GTO 15) available for this ski have high din ranges that start at 8 or 9. A very small percentage of skiers will be suitable for these bindings. If you know that you usually set your din at 8 or above, you are in the clear for a high din binding. Otherwise, those bindings are for EXPERT SKIERS ONLY!

Metal Tip Protectors: These skis have rugged tip protectors made of metal that will help fight against chipping and damage to the tips, which is both a performance and cosmetic benefit.

Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.

Tail Rocker: Just like Tip rocker, but in the tail, this feature allows the tails of the skis to release easier from the turn to give the skier the ability to turn the skis quicker in tight spots. It also allows skiers to dump speed by forcing the tails out and sliding sideways. The effective edge is reduced because of the tail rocker, so the skis will also be easier to control when forced to ski on the groomed slopes.
