The last of the three big skate-skiing skis from Rossignol remains faithful to the reputation that this new range has already forged for itself. Aimed at old and dirty snows, it is more atypical than its two brothers, but no less high-performing. It is the ultimate end of season ski.
What are the features of the Rossignol X-IUM Premium S3 cross-country ski?
Armed with a higher and shorter camber, the X-IUM Premium S3 also has a higher tip than the S1 and S2 versions. The reason is simple, it is designed to excel in other types of conditions; with its white base it is designed to take on old, dirty and transformed snow. It is the dream ski for the end of the season when the snow is used and covered in impurities, its base clogs up far less quickly than the others and its relatively warm-type structure enables faster removal of humidity. These technologies were already put to the test in the old model, the WCS, and it was a complete success. In terms of steering, Rossignol has standards of exceptional stability in skate-skiing and rebound qualities that only Rossignol knows how to make.
Who is this X-IUM Premium S3 cross-country ski aimed at?
Experienced skiers and long-distance enthusiasts will not be blind to the usefulness of an option like this in their tool-kit. Particularly effective and focused on performance, the X-IUM Premium S3 is a ski aimed at a well-informed audience that is aware of the peculiarities of its design. It would be an excellent second pair to have in your collection, or even a pair that can be taken out every day if the season is uncertain. On dirty snow it is way ahead of the pack and experts will know the importance of having a second pair of skis for these types of conditions.
