Rossignol Scratch Ski -
With the athlete-approved Rossignol Scratch Ski claiming more X-Game medals than any other ski, it's no wonder that this park and pipe ski has been haunting your dreams all summer and fall when you think about winter. This slopestyle and pipe specific ski provides you with the tools to effectively launch into the air, showcase some ridiculously awesome trick, and calmly stomp it without so much of a hitch.
Designed with a Jib Tip that provides a rounder tip profile, the Scratch supplies a sweet ski for pipe and park transitions and for skiing switch so you're able to make things look smooth and effortless during take-off and landing. Rossignol also equipped the Scratch with an Auto Turn Rocker profile for more versatile, easier skiing in a wide range of snow and terrain conditions. Its camber underfoot delivers power, energy, and edge-grip for stellar performance on groomed terrain while the Scratch's subtle rockered tip and tail design delivers easy steering, carving, turning, effortless speed control, and maximum versatility in all terrain and snow types. Basically, this means you're able to jib and launch off of your mountain's natural features, slide up and down rails and boxes with ease, and work on your skiing skills when the park and pipe are jam-packed during the holidays or weekends.
If you thought that wasn't enough, Rossignol gave the Scratch an Extended Sidecut which means the ski's sidecut continues beyond contact point where the tip and tail rocker start. As a result, at high speeds and increased edge angles the sidecut is more engaged for powerful full-length grip while at lower speeds and edge angles, the sidecut is less engaged for more maneuverability and ease.
If you're worried about blowing an edge or snapping a ski, don't be, as Rossignol uses Minicap sandwich sidewall construction. Its Minicap strengthens the top of the ski for increased durability while 30-degree inclined sidewalls improve swing weight and reduce the ski's overall weight for enhanced edging and durability. Oh, and its wood core with microcell and fiberglass laminates supply stellar durability, a light weight, and improved energy transmission for killer pop. Phew ... now that's a lot of tech talk for a ski that's all about play.
