Back for another season and probably another round of medals at this year's X Games, the Rossignol Scratch Ski brings back the same profile and features that have made it a favorite of top park and pipe competitors, not to mention those looking to up their park skills. Jib Tip technology provides a rounder tip profile for smoother pipe and park transitions, and increases the durability of the ski. The traditional camber profile delivers power, energy, and edge-grip for stellar performance on groomed and packed terrain. Rossignol also gave the Scratch an Extended Sidecut, which means the sidecut continues beyond where the ski makes contact with the snow. 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. Don't be worried about blowing an edge or snapping a ski--Rossignol uses Minicap sandwich sidewall construction. Its Minicap strengthens the top of the ski for increased durability while 30-degree inclined sidewalls and a nimble 84mm underfoot width 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. Basically, all this means you're able to jib and launch off of the 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.
