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.

Fantastic ski
Comments:
Just got off this ski from a demo hut. Tried all different brands popular in the year but E88 is clearly my choice. It is fast, bites tight on ice or snow and turned so easily. It really elivates the fun of skiing to the next level. Fantastic!

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 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.

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.

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 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.

Q: What are specifications of the 164cm rossi 88?
Asked : Mar 07, 2017
By : Vj, Lawrenceville
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A:The 164cm has the dimensions of 135/88/124. I do not have the ski in stock, so I cannot confirm the turning radius. I am estimating that it would be around 14m.

Q: How well does this ski do in the bumps?
Asked : Feb 16, 2017
By : Alex, Sioux City, IA
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A:The E88HD makes a great carving ski, but in my opinion the same traits (flex patter, oversized sidecut, wide tip and tail that) make it great on the groomers inhibit it a little bit in the bumps. The tip and tail shape can feel too hooky in moguls.

Q: I am 5'6'' and 195lbs, intermediate skier. What size would fit me best? I looked up the table offered by Rossignol where 180cm is the suggested size. Would it be little long for me or is it Ok? Thank you very much!

Q: Hi. I am 5'11'' 210 lbs, 45 yrs old - ex CSIA level 1 (25 yrs ago, Ontario). Advanced ability and comfortable at speed. Ski 10-15 times a year on 300 footers (i'm on the prairie). Tried a buddy's E83s but they felt a bit sluggish - (no disrespect, just not 'my ski'). Currently skiing older Head carvers that really respond in the turns and feel 'independent'. Planning on renting in Whistler this year (I do something 'big' once a year). Wondering if I should get these or the Pursuits (800). 800s might be a bit much for me but don't want to be bogged down. Thoughts? And a recommendation on length (both) would be awesome :) ! Thanks!
Asked : Jan 16, 2017
By : PrairiePaul, Winnipeg
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A:The Experience line has improved quite a bit since the E83 was produced. The addition of the HD (Carbon Alloy Matrix). The E88HD is quick and responsive, with a wide enough footprint to head into some fresh snow in Whistler while being fun on short vert. The Pursuit 800 is a high powered carver that is not very versatile, and needs some speed to perform its best. Based on your weight and ability the 180cm will be the optimal size for you in the 88HD.

Q: I am a 6'3 235 lb ex-advanced skier getting back into sport after 20 yrs away from skiing. Want an all mountain ski but don't expect to be bombing down the steeps now at almost 50 yrs old. 180 or 188 cm?

Q: Just demo'd the E 88s at Whistler. Thinking about buying them. What would the ideal length be? I'm 69 inches, 170 lbs, strong intermediate, skiing blues/single black diamond. I tried the 164s (they were out of 172) but am thinking the 172 may be better? Ski 50% groomers, 50% off
