The Black Ops Holyshred is Rossignol’s completely new solution to the all-mountain freeride equation. With a 98mm-waist, the ski is versatile enough to slice and dice groomers but keeps enough horsepower under the hood to take on steeper, ungroomed terrain with ease. Testers of all styles and backgrounds were more than impressed with the Holyshred’s do-it-all demeanor, and especially appreciated its ease of use right off the rack. Easy to see this ski become an instant classic. 

STRENGTH: Overall Impression, Stability at Speed
