The Pursuit 12 is built for economical pricing and can't-miss carvability at moderate speeds on groomed snow. It's the only Pursuit model with a soft-flexing cap construction and lightweight, affordable foam core. It comes with Rossignol's 11-DIN Xelium binding. Rossignol's Pursuit series comprises four models built expressly for high-performance carving on flat, firm snow. Waist widths range from 81 mm down to 70 mm. Constructions vary from the precise, powerful metal-reinforced laminate layup of the high end (Pursuit HP TI) down to the affordable Rossitop cap construction of the Pursuit 12 TI. All are built on wood cores, except the 12, which gets an economical composite core. All feature extra tight sidecut radii - from around 17 meters in the high-end models down to a radical 13.6 in the 12 - for ultimate carving performance. Subtle early rise in the tip - Rossi calls it Power Turn Rocker - is employed to smooth out terrain shocks and ease turn entries. H Technology - lengthwise relief cuts in the tips and tails of reinforcing laminates - softens torsional rigidity for an additional measure of forgiveness in turn entries and exits, making it easier for the skier to maintain fore-aft balance. All Pursuit models are sold with bindings.
