They say

The Temptation 84 is a new benchmark in high performance versatility for expert to all mountain advanced skiers. It features a rounder tip profile with Rossignol’s award winning Air Tip technology.

We say

Like a lot of the Rossignol's that we tested the Temptation has fantastic edge hold. This is matched up to a reactive shape which makes the ski really playful and full of life. Although it has high performance on tap it still manages to be really easy to use and would be no problem to manage for lower level skiers. At high speeds on harder snow it will lose some grip and the lack of stiffness comes through, but for most skiers it will be brilliant on the groomed runs. Off piste it worked well enough with the soft forebody of the ski helping to steer through the arc.
