Rossignol Hero Elite LT TI R22 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments
The Hero Elite LT Ti from Rossignol is an excellent ski that won the "Best performance" award last year in this category, but struggled this year with the R22 race plate.
In effect, while the ski's overall qualities are still there, the reviewers were surprised by the unusually poor turn control, considered as "insecure" and the lack of reliability in push-off. We think there was a problem with the model sent for review rather than a problem with the plate that should, in theory, have enhanced its performance.
We therefore prefer to reserve our judgment on the ski Rossignol sent us to review this year and which seems to display abnormal behaviour. We would advise interested riders to check out other reviews or to opt for the version with the mainstream "Konect" plate that proved so successful last year.
- Easy turn initiation
- Excellent stability
- Not very reassuring
- Needs back positioning when applying tail pressure
