They say

We say

Rossignol has stopped using the interchangeable plates that were a signature of this range. The resulting new Z82 uses its shape and construction to good effect. It has a lively, grippy character and feels a strong on-piste contender, particularly in short turns. In deeper conditions, the wide shovel helps with flotation and steering, but the solid torsional flex and carving shape make this ski feel more at home on the piste.

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
Great fun - light enough to throw around, and the wide shovel helps in variable conditions
