Rossignol S86 Freeride
Released October, 2010
The Pros:Versatile enough to handle any terrain. It displays excellent ski/snow contact and good stability.
The Cons:Limited performance at high speed.
The Rossignol S86 Freeride is a high-end freeride ski, geared toward intermediate to professional skiers. This ski is designed to take on 40% of piste and 60% of non-piste territory. Like all the skis in the Freeride line, the S86 Freeride ski has the Amptek profile (which consists of a reverse camber on the tip and tail), so that this ski has improved float on powdered snow compared to previous models, as well as improved turn capability.

Thanks to the titanium laminates of the S86 Freeride, you can get lots of grip on hard packed snow. The wood core of this ski provides a sturdy feel to your run. This ski differs from the closely related S7 Freeride in that it has zicral reinforcement (as opposed to the S7's kevlar/carbon), a freeride tip (as opposed to the S7's powder shape), and smaller rockers and radius. Another difference is that while the S7 is 100% devoted to powder, the S86 is only 50%. This ski also differs from the S80 model, in that the S80 is 40% devoted to powder, has a smaller tip rocker (225 as opposed to the S86's 245) and radius (14.1 meters as opposed to the S86's 14.3 meters). This ski differs from the flagship S97 model in that the S97 has a large 22.2 meter radius. There are size options available for the Rossignol S86 Freeride ski.
