Testers' Ratings

The Rossignol React 8 Titanal for next season is almost the perfect product for skiers who are perfecting their handling in the various turning arcs. It's a product that's "very easy and manoeuvrable, it can be pivoted without too much force, ideal for medium to large turns," according to Alex Favaro. The ski has a "considerable structure while being light and stable" (Rolando Bertolina); it is "versatile and easy to manage in all situations," concludes Giovanni Manfrini. Entering turns is "easy and precise, its structure [is] light and comfortable" (Francesco Tavella). It has "excellent impulse when changing edges" (Stefano Casalino). It is manoeuvrable in all radii, especially in medium turns at not-too-high speed. "It is very light, very good in cut handling and has great manoeuvrability," says Lorenzo Medici. It's the ideal ski for long days of sliding because it adapts to different slopes and soft or transformed snow without ever losing its performance. It has very few flaws apart from the classic ones for this type of ski: grip deteriorates at high speed and its edge lines are lacking in short curves where it loses manoeuvrability and you have to help yourself using your foot. The ski is recommended not only for Class-3 skiers but also for skiers with good technique who will like it because it doesn't require any effort to slide well and ensures the grip of a race ski.
