Rossignol (or Nightingale in English), a French company established in 1907, is renowned for its innovative approach to ski construction. It was one of the first manufacturers to produce plastic skis and its first all metal construction won the downhill at the Squaw Valley Olympics on the boots of Jean Vuarnet.

The 2019/20 season brings a rethought construction to the range, making the new Rossignol Experience collection undoubtedly more versatile than it has ever been.

The ski features "Line Control Technology", a vertical strip of titanal from the tip through the centre of the ski to the tail that helps to make the ski more stable by giving it a rigid platform, but also allows it to remain somewhat torsionally soft and therefore playful. 

Due to the big performance envelope of this ski, it rides well on most terrain and is a ski that you won't outgrow as you progress and become more advanced. 

Of course, fashion is almost as important as function when it comes to skis, and a woman's all mountain ski coloured with pastel blue and orange is a nice change from the standard supposedly feminine colours of pink and purple.

Overall, the Experience 84W is an easy ski to pick up and improve on that delivers an all-important rounded experience without requiring maximum effort at all times. If you are an athletic intermediate level skier looking for an all mountain ski, but spend most of your time on groomers, then this ski is for you.
