        Overall

        A stiff, solid freestyle ski with immaculate build quality. Rips the whole mountain better than nearly all other skis of the same type. Slightly heavier than most, hence why the 07 seasons skis were made lighter.

        Performance

        When mounted at "Standard" they rip all over the mountain with ease. further forward they are solid underfoot and incredibly steady on rails and big hits. (I've had them mounted twice.)

        Design

        In terms of build quality, they are probably the best made freestyle ski on the market (05/06) along with the Volkl Karma.

        The design isnt to everyone tastes but I love it, especially the wrap around tape on the base.

        Value

        Rossignols are cheap in Europe as there are so many around, not so sure about north america.

        Characteristics

        These are one of the stiffest and heaviest freestyle specific skis around. The flex is reasonably consistant throughout with a very solid flex infront of the binding. They are incredibly hard to tip stand on. These characteristics make it ski like a race ski (nearly) on groomed with hardly any chatter although they dont like ice so much. You could compare them with a Volkl Karma for stiffness but slightly narrower at 84mm waist.

        Durability

        Top quality, one of the best made freestyle skis ever.
