They say

The Pursuit is a dedicated high-performance carving ski aimed at technical expert skiers. It uses a subtle tip rocker with traditional camber, and the new ‘Diamond Shape’ for quick, clean turn initiation.

We say

The Pursuit is a very stable, solid ski that immediately feels reassuring on the piste. It’s smooth and predictable in all turn-shapes, and felt pretty faultless. For the skier who loves to carve it’s a great choice, offering exceptional stability at speed. The flex is smooth and it’s easy to steer when on the edge. We struggled on the tuning of the skis on this test, which made them feel grabby and one-dimensional at times, but overall it feels like a well judged piste-performance ski.

Tester Comments

Chris Taine
A more genuine all-rounder than others in this category - good at slower speeds and predictable and stable through the turns.
Lee Townsend
Good stability at speed in long turns - a solid Rossignol ski!
