The Rossignol S97 Freeride is a high-end freeride ski, a flagship offering. This ski is geared toward professional skiers. Rossignol promotes the S97 Freeride as the apex of wide ski design. Like all the skis in the Freeride line, the S97 Freeride ski has the Amptek profile (which consists of a reverse camber on the tip and tail), so that this ski has improved float on powdered snow compared to previous models, as well as improved turn capability. Thanks to the titanium laminates of the S97 Freeride, you can get lots of grip on hard packed snow. The wood core of this ski provides a sturdy feel to your run. This ski differs from the closely related S7 Freeride in that it has zicral reinforcement (as opposed to the S7's kevlar/carbon), a freeride tip (as opposed to the S7's powder shape), and smaller rockers and radius. Another difference is that while the S7 is 100% devoted to powder, the S97 is only 60%. This ski also differs from the S80 and S86 models, in that they are less devoted to powder (the S80 is 40% and the S86 is 50%), and the S80 has a smaller tip rocker (225 as opposed to the S97's 245). This ski differs from all the other models in the Freeride series in that it has a large 22.2 meter radius, which allows you to make extra wide turns. There are size options available for the Rossignol S97 Freeride ski.
