Rossignol Pursuit 600 CAM 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments
Rossignol's Pursuit line is a great success. The Pursuit 800 stood out in the "Men's Top-of-the-range" category with a "Best ski" 2019 distinction. The Pursuit 600 CAM (Carbon Alloy Matrix for those in the know) is very well placed in this (already very demanding) selection of the best skis on the market.
It's extremely accessible thanks to the ease of rotation, consistent skid turns and slight overdrive effect that will facilitate first turns. It's a tool that anyone can handle, even beginners.
The ski is versatile, a good overall performer, and happy in all registers as long as it's not pushed too fast. In effect, at high speed, the tip tends to float and turns are less solid.
The passage from skid turns to carving is easy and even intuitive.
It's an excellent ski for this PROSKILAB programme that selects accessible skis for the weakest riders, but that can help them progress towards more technical carving.
We recommend the Pursuit 600 CAM for a wide range of riders, from beginners getting onto skis for the first time to riders who have mastered parallel turns. They'll all discover an enjoyable, forgiving ski that will help them to make technical progress.
- Efficient skid turns
- Smooth carving
- Tip tends to float a bit
- Limited potential for speed
