Rossignol Rebel X All Mountain Review

Rossignol Rebel X


Description
This extremely comfortable ski makes a variety of turn shapes in different conditions. The Rebel X has energy and rebound, yet is very light in weight. Ski Magazine - Gold Medal Winner. INTEGRAL DUALTEC Two technologies integrated into one structure. The bottom half of the ski is a traditional construction with short, thick 90º sidewalls to give the ski a solid edge grip. The top half of the ski is a cap construction designed for energy and rebound out of the turn. Technology for the expert skier. TWIN V.R.S. For optimal vibration absorption, TWIN V.A.S. elements are placed near the edges. The result is a net improvement in the ski’s stability and edge-hold.

Length 160.170.177.184.191 Weight 1640g [184] Sidecut 100/67/88

Summary:
Took my first few runs of the year on these babies. I'll submit another review once I give a more subjective test run in 10" of freshies or a mogul field perfect for descent.These are billed a a poor mans Bandit...if so, I'm glad I did not pay the big money for the Bandit. They are a very forgiving ski. My first couple runs I was off balance a couple of times and could get away with skiing on the wrong foot on the Rebel X's. Definitely for medium speeds- attn: speed demons-You will not break any land speed records on the Rebel X. They do seem very playful and willing to do the dance in short radius fall line turns and have some pop out of a turn, although don't seem like near as hard core of an all Terrain ski in deep snow as the Dynastar Outland 4X4 w Omega Power Rib which I've used. Conversely, these would probably be much more nimble & predictable than the Dynastar going off road where trees might be a hinder. Like I mentioned earlier, I have not put em through all the paces which this ski is intended for. Would probably make an Excellent ski for an advanced skier looking to conquer new terrain and not get taken for a bobsled ride to perhaps an expert looking for a ski just to knock around on when you're out with the family or less skilled skiers

Summary:
These skiis were beautiful. I tried them out as demos, and man, they were the sweetest thing i've ever used. I've been looking for a nice free ride, shaped ski, and this was perfect. They were so incredibly light, it was like floating in the air, and carving was a piece of cake. They seemed fine on the groomed trails, a little skitchy on ice but not too bad. The price for the demos was $699, but that's Canada.

Summary:
This ski is great!!! For those who do not have a lot of mass these are the ski for you. Great all mountain, holds well here in New England. A good bump ski too. Get out and buy some. But don't get taken to the cleaners. These skis should not cost you more than $400.00. Never purchase any ski at full MARP!

Summary:
The Skies Rock!!! The Value-Price rate is great. I've been skiing on these skies since the beginning of the season and these skies have changed the way i ski. A great ski on soft snow, but if the place where u ski has a lot of hard snow i would recommend an other ski.

Summary:
I had a blast on this ski. It is flexier and lighter than the Bandit X, though with the same sidecut. Reminded me of the soft Rossi 4s which I skied for many years. The softer flex allows it to turn very easily compared to the Bandit X which, on packed powder either skid turns of goes fast and more or less down the fall line due to the lack of shape. I pushed this ski and it never let me down. But as I said above I've yet to try it in tough snow. It was a very relaxing ride. A great intermediate to advanced to even expert ski, depending on conditions
