What are the specifications of the Rossignol X-IUM Skating Premium S2 IFP cross-country ski?
Given the structure, the camber and the geometry remain identical to last year’s version, we already know the ski is a good ski. Extremely efficient on hard and compact snow, this is Rossignol’s top shelf most versatile ski. The 2 grooves on the base combined with a long and progressive camber enhance the steerability of the ski as well as its rebound. The softer tip makes it even more versatile and more forgiving as well. It performs better in softer snow conditions. The structure of the ski remains efficient in a temperature range from -5 to +2°C (i.e. most of the time). The rebound of the ski feels lively and dynamic, it delivers an immediate and enjoyable acceleration. Stable and less demanding than the previous versions, this new X-IUM Premium S2 is a sheer success.
