Technical info:
The new generation of Super skis from Rossignol have inherited a lot from their predecessors. The HD variant is supposed to be more piste orientated. It still has a big tip, but it now comes with instructions for how to saw off (!) a couple of centimeters of the tip. Here we find a short sidecut radius towards the tip and a pronounced rocker and taper transition that start at the same point. The flex is relatively soft.

On snow:
Good allrounder that is easy to maneuvre, also on smaller surfaces. A good choice for Norwegian birch woods. The edge grip is ok and it floats well at high speed. Occasionally it flutters, as if the front and back ski don´t quite agree with each other. It might be the camber that causes this. The ski is suited for those who are looking for their first broad pair of skis. It is easy to maneuver in powder. Would it be better if you cut off some of the tip? We think so.
