Rossignol Experience 94 TI 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments
We've been reviewing Rossignol's Experience for many years now... Our reviewers have frequently criticized the skis for being too focused on the world of the groomers, with strongly shaped designs and radical tips.
In January 2018, Rossignol told us it had taken our comments into account (and no doubt those of other reviews too) when it presented us with the new Experience line with straighter shapes and more adaptive tips and rockers.
The result of these changes is extremely positive. The Experience 94 Ti has pulled itself up to the top level thanks to the ski's performance both on and off piste as well as its impressive accessibility.
It's effectively an "easy ski", "reassuring", "accessible to everyone"... Easy to get to grips with, it's consistent and reassuring, especially for riders taking their first steps off the groomed runs.
An "excellent piste ski", the Experience 94 performs well, is grippy, reassuring and can easily switch turns.
Unexpectedly (given the size of the model tested), the ski is "very playful" and lots of fun for the rider.
The reviewers noted a considerable improvement in the off-piste behaviour of this new generation. The ski is now a real all-mountain freeride ski that's comfortable in all snow conditions, including tricky snow.
The reviewers tested the 187cm ski on relatively soft snow (like all the other models in this category). It's therefore logical to expect less performance on hard pack with shorter skis. But the ski's qualities and the progress the brand has made are undeniable.
The Experience 94 Ti is a must for all riders looking for a genuine one-ski quiver with a focus on agility and a good deal of performance. We recommend it for all good to excellent skiers of small to average size who're looking above all for simplicity and pleasure. The 184cm that we reviewed would be best for heavier or extremely athletic riders, while the others would probably be better off with the 180cm.
- Versatile both on and off piste
- Very stable
- Ploughs through the crud
- Great curve control
- Great long and short turn control
- Less convincing at high speeds
