“The all-mountain machine. Go anywhere, anytime and do anything. Excels on and off the trail.”
Just like a good relationship, a subtle touch works best with this ski. Soft flexing but still stable.
Surprisingly nimble on the front side groomers which was another pleasant surprise especially considering the dimensions. That is not to say that the Rossignol B2 is as nimble as some skier cross models, but they will bang out some quick turns with very little effort. If only there was a bit more beef in the tails.
Possibly the biggest “sweet spot” I have felt in any ski since the
188cm K2 Four. In case you don’t remember, the K2 Four was like
skiing in a Lincoln Town Car. Now there’s a "sweet spot".
