The widest of Rossignol’s Experience series, the 98 was built for speed. Yes, it’s a directional ski, but you’ll have so much fun going forward, you won’t even think about going switch. As with many skis in the all-mountain category, the Experience 98 utilizes a small amount of early rise in the tip and tail for increased maneuverability and float. The Experience 98 also features Rossignol’s Extended Sidecut where the sidecut continues beyond the contact points of the tip and tail, so as speeds and edge angles increase, more sidecut is engaged for full-length edge grip. “This ski loves to rail. It’s easy to initiate but very, very stable. And, it likes speed,” praised one tester.
