'Lively and responsive,' said one of our testers about the Pursuit 13 from Rossignol.
These excellent value skis would make a great first-time buy for any skier who's progressed past the rental stage and wants something they can call their own.
Versatile and easy to turn - they hold a good edge grip and can handle both long and short turns well.
The wood core ensures good torsional strength which means they can be pushed up to a pretty high level, whilst the rockered tip makes turn initiation easier and smooth.
For a keen skier who wants to improve over the course of a couple of winters they would be highly suitable.
