 Overview
 

The Rossignol Experience 88 HD has gotten some improvements this season, but still remains a fantastic ski for the solid intermediate wanting a ski to take them to the next level, all the way up to the expert that wants a highly maneuverable on piste ski. The major overhaul this season is the fact that Rossignol has added the new Carbon Alloy Matrix. The Carbon Alloy Matrix uses basalt and carbon fiber in a diagonal weave that increases the vibration absorption, edge grip, stability, and responsiveness, taking a great ski and only making it better. The Experience 88 HD also boasts the Auto Turn Rocker that has a rockered tip, camber underfoot, and a small amount of rocker in the tail, for a highly maneuverable ski. Rossignol's Air Tip Construction uses a honeycomb pattern in the tip to pull heavier material away from the tip of the ski for a lower swingweight, and increased maneuverability. An Extended Sidecut provides the most control and edge grip at both fast and slow speeds, which is one the best features of the Experience 88 HD, is the fact that it can be skied at any speed. If you are searching for that perfect ski that rips carves at any speed in a cool and precise manner, find out what all the fuss is about, with the all new Rossignol Experience 88 HD.

Hi I'm Thom, I just got off of the Rossignol Experience 88 HD. This ski comes back for yet another season with yet another upgrade. Again it's a 5 out of 5 star ski. Every year Rossi brings this ski back and every year they manage to make it just a little bit better. The Carbon Alloy Matrix in this adds a lot of stability and a lot of predictability that this ski really needed. So you get a ski that gets up on an edge, rails a carve, holds through the hold turn but still has a lot of power and excitement to finish the turn with. So it's an incredibly well rounded experience. With the new Carbon Alloy it actually increases the ski range for this ski so even your athletic intermediate, all the way up through your expert level skier can hop on this and have a great time just shredding it up on the frontside. With a little bit of width to dabble in some crud and bumps. 5 out of 5.

I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Rossignol Experience 88. This whole experience series is 5 star skis from top to bottom and this is really kind of like the flagship of that. It really caters to a really broad range spectrum of skiers from that solid intermediate all the way to that expert. You can really enjoy this ski for mostly on-trail skiing and making some solid carves. It's got the Air Tip which lowers the weight and the tip of the ski and makes it extremely easy to maneuver. And the new carbon alloy construction just gives it a lot of energy and a lot of pop without sacrificing anything. It's always really hard to think how Rossignol could keep improving on this ski but they really did it. 5 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Brooks, I just got off the Rossignol Experience 88. Great ski, I give it 4 out of 5 stars. Great for carving turns on the frontside of the hill. Got a little shaky going through some of the slush and bumps and stuff but really fun. Holds a good edge, a lot of fun going back and forth; quick turns and big long striking turns. 4 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Steve, I just got of the new Rossi Experience 88. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars, skis amazing. Fourth year for this ski, it's always been a crowd favorite. They've added Carbon Alloy Matrix to the ski to make it a little quicker and lighter. It's an amazing carving ski. If you're an ex racer and you're looking for something in a wider ski, nothing hooks up like this ski. It really is a unique turn profile. It finishes the turns with a fast acceleration, the edge bites really tight and it really comes out accelerating out of the turn like no other ski that I've ever skied. It's a great, fast hardpack, hard charging go anywhere frontside type ski, I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Steve and I just skied the Rossignol Experience 88 HD. I give this ski 4.5 out of 5 stars. Great ski, nice and light, very stable underfoot. Good for long carving turns, really quick in the tighter turns. Pretty comfortable at higher speeds. Really good ski for the intermediate to the advanced intermediate skier, all the way up to the expert skier. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Q: I'm looking to buy these for my husband for christmas. He is advanced skier and 5'10" 210 lbs. I can't get to his other skis to see his preferred size. What would you recommend?

A: Based on his weight and ability the 188cm will be the optimal size.

Q: High, I am male, 62, 183lbs and 178cm tall. I can ski everything well and would place my varied terrain and conditions ability levels within mid to top level of advanced. I have normally skied on all mountain skis as my main ski and quite short at 168cm as I like the extra maneuverability to be able to occasionally throw them around in hard bouncy short turns and bumps and, although I have to then work at it, I can still manage them quite well off piste when required. I am now considering the 88's (or84) at a more usual length for the stability and larger carving benefits and have some concern as to whether I can assume the 88 180cm length is going to offer a level of maneuverability for piste and bumps that might reasonably satisfy me?

A: Based on your weight, ability, and the terrain you want to ski I recommend the 180cm E88. The rocker profile and flex pattern makes the ski very maneuverable.

By : can, maryland
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: Based on you weight, and ability the 172cm would be the optimal size for you. If you spend the majority of your time on the groomers and looking at your location the E88 will be the best option for you. If you travel westward quite a bit the E100 would be the better option for you.
