Gear of the Week: Rossignol S86 Freeride

Gear of the Week: Rossignol S86 Freeride
Rossignol S86 (2011)
Rossignol had a great test this year, and here’s the poster child of the Rooster’s fully fledged return to relevance.

Rossignol had a great test this year, and here’s the poster child of the Rooster’s fully fledged return to relevance. The S86 is an accomplished generalist. Sidecut and traditional camber underfoot combined with a wood-core, metal-reinforced construction make it surefooted on hard snow. But rocker and reverse camber tip-and-tail make it fun and easy in powder, crud, even bumps. It pivots, skids, smears, carves—whatever is asked of it—making it a great choice for anything but the deepest powder or hardest ice.
