Waist Width: 70
The 2016 Rossignol Unique is a light, soft, low-priced frontside carver aimed at novice and intermediate women who stick to groomed slopes. It's an economical cap construction with foam core, sold with the 10-DIN Rossignol Saphir 100 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 smooths 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).
