The Rossignol Temptation 80 is a great ski for the solid intermediate wanting a ski that is very easy to ski and loaded with game improvement technology. Rossignol's Extended Sidecut gives you more effective edge with the more angle you get the skis on their edges when at higher speeds, and less effective edge with the less angle you put on your edges at slower speeds. The Extended Sidecut gives you plenty of control whether you're carving or skidding your turns. Rossignol's Auto Turn Rocker has a rockered tip to initiate turns faster and easier. Camber underfoot will provide edge hold and spring into your turns. Rocker in the tail gives you an easier and smoother exit at the end of a turn. The Auto Turn Rocker simply makes turning easier. The Air Tip on the Temptation 80 pulls heavier material away from the tip of the ski to give you a lower swing weight and make the ski more maneuverable. An 80mm waist is perfect for sliding your way down a groomer with stability and will give you a smoother ride if it starts to get a little cruddy out. If you're a solid intermediate looking to perfect your skills, the Rossignol Temptation 80 will help you improve rapidly.

2016 Rossignol Temptation 80 Ski Review by Jessica
Hi, I'm Jessica and I just got off the Rosi Temptation 80. I give this ski 5 out of 5. It's my favorite ski of today. It holds a better edge than the 77 so if you're the intermediate looking to advance this is going to be the ski for you. Holds a really good edge at faster speeds but also can take it slow if you want it to. Again, 5 out of 5 ski for the intermediate looking to progress.
Hi, I'm Julie. I just got off the Rossignol Temptation 80. I give this ski a 5 out of 5 star rating. Another awesome ski from the Rossignol collection this year. It's a really light, versatile ski. Skis really well into variable snow conditions that are starting to happen today here. Just very easy to make medium to longer radius turns. Very easy to roll onto edge and make either a skidded or even a parallel turn. For somebody that's looking to progress their skill set up to that level where they're going to be carving their turns, this is a great choice.
Hi, I'm Linda. I just finished skiing the Rossignol Temptation 80. I'm going to give this 4 out of 5 stars. It's an intermediate frontside ski. It turns nice. It's nice and light. It's an all-day ski. We're getting a little choppy conditions here and I was bouncing around; could be because I'm a little bigger than this ski is designed for. So that would be my only concern and why it gets 4 out of 5 for an intermediate skier.
Hi, I'm Moinca and I just got off riding the Rossignol Temptation 80 and this is a...I give this ski a 5 out of 5. It's a great beginner-intermediate ski. If you're a beginner and you're wanting your next ski, this is the ski. This is a great ski. It's going to make you feel very secure, very comfortable. It'll challenge you. It makes great short radius turns. Great long turns. Goes on an edge. Also floats on top of the snow so it's a really versatile ski. Again, I give it a 5 out of 5.
2016 Rossignol Temptation 80 Ski Review by Brigitte
Hi, I'm Brigitte. Just got off the Rossignol Temptation 80. I give this ski 5 out of 5. I really like the Temptation series. What I like about this one, it's got soft at the top and then on the sidewall gets you a good grip. And for an intermediate skier, it's perfect. I felt like I was floating. It was pretty cool. So, I gave it 5 out of 5.
Q: I am a 5'6" 120 lb skier most comfortable on blues. I ski on the East Coast but also want something that can handle conditions out West and in dry powder. Is this a wide enough ski? Is the 160cm length the right length for me? I have only been skiing for 3 years but am looking for something that will help me continue to progress at a fast pace and still be level-appropriate for the next 5-10 years.
A: Based on your current weight and ability the 152cm would be the optimal size for you. The Temptation 80 would be a fine ski for you out West as long as you are spending nearly all of your time on the groomers. It is very difficult to say where your skiing would be in 5 years, let alone 10. This ski would be great for you now, and at least few seasons down the road, but you would maybe want to consider a wider, stiffer ski when the time comes if your terrain choices in the Rockies include more off piste skiing.
