Black Ops 98 Ski
Head to the resort with confidence because you are toting along the Rossignol Black Ops 98 Ski. This ski boasts a frontside-friendly 98mm waist and Rocker camber rocker profile. These two combine to go quickly edge to edge, provide impressive grip on firm pack, float through deep snow, and turn on a dime. To back this up a women's specific flex keeps things stable and reliable at high speed thanks to stiffness underfoot but opens up a world of butters and tight control thanks to softer tips and tails. This combination of attributes places these sticks as Rossignol's most capable in bounds freestyle ski made specifically for women.
- Freestyle friendly daily drivers for riders looking to charge
- 98mm waist is quick edge to edge and able to handle fresh snow
- Women's specific flex boosts control without limiting stability
- Rocker in the tip and tail allows for pivot control, float in pow
- Camber underfoot creates solid edge hold in dicey situations
- Full wood core creates a solid and stable platform for high speeds
- Sandwich construction with full sidewalls boosts durability
Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preffered style of skiing. For example, an expert skier on in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
