Rossignol Famous 10 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments
The Famous 10 from Rossignol offers an excellent compromise between performance and comfort.
Overall performance is excellent and the ski is made for carving.
Its behaviour is consistent in all situations and the ski is "easy to understand" and "easy to get to grips with" as the PROSKILAB reviewers put it. They particularly liked the ski’s capacity to alternate relaxed skid turns with more aggressive carve turns. The combination of performance, comfort and reliability made it extremely enjoyable. It’s a "very good ski, "cool", "easy and very nice to ride" according to our professional reviewers.
The ski is very smooth but a bit less playful and agile than some of its rivals, despite its short radius (13m). It requires some technical skills, engagement and "vertical pressure" to be steered.
It's an ideal ski for good to excellent riders looking for a compromise between performance and pleasure.
- Great performance
- Easy to understand
- Good rotation
- Smooth transition from skid turns to carving
- Slight lack of character
- Needs a little engagement and technical prowess
