LINE CONTROL TECHNOLOGY (LCT)
An evolution of World Cup racing innovation, Rossignol’s patented new LCT construction harnesses pure power and energy, delivering fluid stability in all conditions. Featuring a central “power rail” integrated from tip-to-tail, LCT eliminates counter-flexing of the ski to ensure consistently smooth stability and dynamic control of your line.
The CASCADE TIP construction employs staggered lengths of metal and fiberglass through the ski's tip, reducing swing weight and controlling tip torsion for smoother turn initiation, increased precision, and more effective full-length edge grip.
TITANAL laminates optimize dampness, stability, and torsional rigidity for maximum power, precision, and downhill performance.
RECTANGULAR SIDEWALL constructions feature a horizontal layering of core materials (wood, fiberglass, metal, etc.) combined with full-length vertical sidewalls to deliver optimized edge grip, precision, balance, and power.
WOOD CORES are dense, durable, and heavy, providing optimized dampness (vibration removal) and stability.
Ski profile is narrower through the contact point with more flare in the tip than the tail. Provides full edge length grip and power through the turn, quick turn initiation, snappy boost while exiting the turn and quick edge to edge action.
The FULL CAMBER profile delivers the ultimate power, precision, and rebound for uncompromising FIS Race level performance.
