They say

The new Unique has been developed from last year’s Attraxion. It’s an exceptionally light ski using a new ‘Air Core’ which reduces weight by 20%. It also uses Rossignol’s ‘Oversized’ sidecut with a wide tip matched with a rockered nose. 

We say

The Unique’s lighter construction is noticeable - even carrying them is much less of an effort than other skis! The added benefits of the weight reduction include ease of steering and a generally high-energy reactive nature. The real trick this ski pulls off is that although it has a definite lightness of touch, it still manages to deliver when it comes to high-end performance. Both in long and short turns, it’s very powerful, grippy and incredibly reactive. A brilliant piste ski, with heaps of character.
