The Avenger series returns as Rossignol' s frontside line. Features include full camber for energy and response on groomers and Rossi' s All-Mountain Tip, which places the widest part of the ski beyond the snow contact point, for improved turn initiation and extra float off-piste. The 82 Basalt trades some metal laminate for basalt to lighten the load while maintaining a smooth damp ride. It' s not quite as powerful as the Avenger 82 TI but more forgiving. It' s intended for an upper intermediate or advanced frontside skier that wants a slightly less aggressive ski. Sold as a system ski with the Axial120 binding.
