The 2016 Rossignol Unique 6 is a forgiving groomed-snow cruiser for lightweight and/or unaggressive female skiers. It comes with the same binding as the Unique 10 and 8-the 11-DIN Rossignol Saphir 110 women's binding-but a more forgiving and economical binding interface that delivers energy to the edge a little less powerfully. 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).
