The Unique 10 is Rossignol's highest-performing groomed-snow carver, aimed at expert women who know how to set an edge and aren't afraid of speed. It's sold with an 11-DIN Saphir 110 women's binding. Rossignol's Unique line of frontside women's carving/cruising skis includes four models with groomer-ready waist widths in the 70-to-75-mm range. Tight sidecut radii make them eager carvers for women who know how to tip and pressure a ski. They're similar to the men's Pursuit line of hard-snow carvers, but in lighter, softer constructions suitable to women. Subtle tip rocker smoothes out terrain shocks and hastens hook-up in new turns, while camber underfoot gives them strong edge grip and snappy rebound. All but the value-priced Unique are built on lightweight paulownia wood cores with a hollow channel for further weight savings. All are sold as systems (ie., with binding).
