The Rossi Unique skis are well, very unique in that they are exceptionally lightweight for a high performance all mountain ski. This ski is very high tech and was designed for ladies who are fairly aggressive skiers. The "Air Core" is mainly what keeps this ski so light and what it means is that part of the core is hollowed out making the ski 20% lighter! You can thank Rossi for that one because we believe all ladies skis should be lightweight. This 75mm waisted ski is also very easy to turn especially with a great rocker profile and it will be stable as well with the Titanal and Carbon stringers that run the length of the ski. To put it simply, if you are an aggressive skier looking for a mostly on-trail ski, this is a fantastic choice and with those matching bindings, how could you go wrong!

Description

Details

Free Binding Mounting: We will mount you ski bindings for free whenever you order skis and bindings. If you order boots, too, we can adjust them so they are ready to hit the slopes right out of the box! Just be sure to fill out the mounting form that comes up after checkout.

Saphir 110 Bindings Included: These skis come equipped with Saphir 110 bindings which have a din range of 3.5-10 and are fully adjustable (261mm-327mm) once mounted. These bindings are a bit more aggressive than most women's style bindings.

Skier Ability: Advanced to Expert: Skipping the blue runs to get to the black runs, but sometimes a little cautious when it gets very steep, or some hesitation when your buddy says, ''You just have to clear those rocks or else you're toast.''

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.

Cascade Tip: This tip is defined as "[using] varying shapes of metal and fiberglass laminates at staggered lengths to provide a lighter extremity. The unique layered shapes control tip torsion which smoothes out turn initiation and improves full edge contact. The lighter weight tip improves the swing weight of the ski for quick and adaptable turn initiation." We could not possibly have described it any better than that.

These skis have a wood core, but not a solid wood core. Aerating the wood core makes it lighter while still retaining much of the flex and durability of a solid wood core. This is a 'best of both worlds' type of thing!

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.

Titanal sheets: A unique blend of titanium and aluminum that gives extra strength and stiffness to the skis without adding too much weight. Skis with Titanal sheets are typically reserved for advanced to experts, because they require more speed or strength to flex them properly.

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.

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.

Oversized Sidecut: This sidecut design from Rossignol is an exaggerated parabola that makes turning easier and more stable. All skis nowadays are 'shaped,' but these are 'very shaped,' you could say.

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.

Carbon Reinforcement: An added layer of carbon that stiffens up the ski a bit and gives it better rebound when coming in and out of turns. It also gives you some extra ups while hitting jumps and cliffs.
