Rossignol Nova 14 Ti reviews 2020
PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments
For women's skis (just as with men's), in this "Cruiser" category we select skis that have an overall quality of consistency. We are not looking for the most high performance or the most accessible skis on the market, we are looking for those which offer a balance between efficiency, comfort, ease of use and versatility.
The Nova 14 Ti is the flagship of Rossignol's Nova range, which fits perfectly with this category. Nova is a new range for the French brand and an equivalent to the men's React, which replaces what was the Famous range.
At 699 euros, the Nova 14 Ti, is not cheap but of course you get what you pay for.
The first observation is that it scores for performance. Reinforced by a sheet of Titanal, the ski is grippy, gives solid support and is very "stable at top speeds".
It's also versatile: it carves or skids under control and is at ease with all types of turn.
The Nova 14 Ti is not demanding. The model is "easy to get to grips with" and is not technically or physically demanding. The successful blend of accessibility and performance make it also a very progressive ski which will allow skiers to move up to a higher technical level.
"Pleasurable ride", "very nice", the feedback from the testers are in agreement about the ski and the experience of the ride. The testers enjoyed the comfort and playful quality of the ski, in particular, the lively rebound at the end of the turn.
An excellent all-rounder, tolerant, accessible and offering a fun ride, le Nova 14 Ti will please intermediate level skiers who wish to evolve technically as well as experts looking for a performance ski which is versatile and comfortable.
