Says Simon Caprini, Rossignol’ senior racing manager:
We kept the character of the skis with the stability and the control. Our goal for skating skis was to give more of the feeling under the foot. We also did try to add a better fluidity by changing shape.
The balance of the ski is better: tips and heels are lighter which brings a really cool “flying feeling”.
The elements in skis are also different. For instance, the carbon fiber we did use in the past is no longer there, it was improved.
The most important for us was to bring a new free feeling.
