Rossignol Pursuit 800 TI 2019

Best performance!

PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

The Pursuit 800 Ti from Rossignol is a very versatile ski.

When cruising (as long as it stays in carving mode since it’s a tad less at ease in skid turns), the ski is easy to handle, comfortable, enjoyable and versatile.

But it's when you step up the pace that the ski shows its real character… and what character! As you pile on the pressure, the ski seems to just want more. The reviewers were clear: "A super performer and raring to go", "energetic and grippy", "made to carve", "incisive", "just wants to play"... The reviewers couldn't praise it enough. The ski's grip, turn control and ability to take the edge in carving were particularly appreciated.

We highly recommend the Pursuit 800 Ti for good to expert riders who want a good one-ski quiver. The ski will also help good riders achieve more technical and more radical turns. Riders who haven't yet mastered carved turns would probably be better off with an MX84 from Kästle.

Review: Pros

  • Top flight performance
  • Incisive
  • Good grip
  • Great carving qualities
  • Versatile

Review: Cons

  • Demanding, not as accessible as some other skis
  • Less convincing in skid turns
