The Rossignol Experience 88Ti 2020/21 remains largely unchanged from last year, so our 2019/20 review of the Rossignol Experience 88Ti, below, still stands.

This is a model unchanged from last season, but notable is the way in which Rossignol - like other brands - are pushing the crossover story and the all mountain thinking.

In the case of the Experience 88Ti, Rossignol use the Line Control Techonology of their piste skis for stability (it's essential a central rail down the length of the ski), and combine that with the very recognisable Air Tip construction from their freeride range, notably from the Soul 7, to reduce weight and increase float at the front.

Last season this model scored highly and this year it does too. The field has changed to some extent, and a couple of models give it a run for its money (specifically the Elan Wingman 86Cti FusionX and the Nordica Navigator 90) but it holds its own as a 'genuine' all-rounder.

It gives a superb and fun ride, and just as poppy as any comparable model but without the obviously-freeride-inspired graphics. It does look a bit more interesting than last season's version though, with a sort of military hue.

Like last year, the Experience 88Ti is essentially solid, powerful and versatile, nimble for its size and floats like a wider ski. If that's not all mountain nailed, we don't know what is.
