They say

The new Experience features a rounder tip profile and uses Rossignols Air Tip Technology to reduce weight, this is matched up to a more progressive rocker for enhanced float and control.

We say

As an all mountain choice the Experience is a solid feeling, strong performer. It would definitely suit skiers who love the feel and performance of a piste ski. Thanks to its strong sidewall construction and a robust flex pattern it’s a ski which constantly delivers powerful edge grip right up to high speeds on hard icy slopes. As well as high edge hold the Experience has a very smooth, stable ride which irons out any vibration and feels silky to ride on any terrain. In deeper snow away from the piste it powers through with ease, but feels harder to steer for lower speed manoeuvring.

Tester Comments

Derek Chandler
Feels like a strong, good ski, but needs muscles for the off piste
Mark Jones
Smooth, stable, great sensitive feeling underfoot. Awesome grip in long turns.
