Rossignol's new Pursuit series is designed with the fronside- and carve-oriented skier in mind. Rossi uses race-quality materials and powerful constructions throughout the line. The Pursuit 18 has the longest turn radius of the series so it prefers longer, more GS-like turns. A lattice of Aramide, titanium, and basalt laminates provides dampness without adding all of the weight of metal dampeners. A touch of rocker will give some forgiveness to the ski, but it is designed for aggressive skiers to attack hardpack.
