One of the best-known skis from the last three seasons, the WCS S2, now succeeded by the Premium from Rossignol, has found a new lease of life. It would have been a shame for it to be any other way for this model that has won everything and marked the history of the Biathlon and French cross-country skiing.
What are the features of the Rossignol X-IUM WCS S2 cross-country ski?
The Premium’s predecessor, the X-IUM WCS S2, enjoys a reputation that has diverged from the preceding Rossignol ranges. Stable and penetrating on hard snows and armed with a low and long camber and exceptional lateral rigidity, the X-IUM WCS S2 is the ultimate skate-skiing ski. Perfect for working on technique, it also enjoys exceptional rebound qualities like all the top-of-the-range skis from Rossignol, their peculiarity being that they make you feel what is alive under your feet, an active camber and a pronounced energy. In terms of glide, its base has a versatile cold structure which adapts perfectly to a season’s “normal” conditions. The WCS is a safe choice.
Who is the Rossignol X-IUM WCS S2 cross-country ski aimed at?
Experienced skiers, or those looking to progress technically, will see in it the opportunity to master the energy connected to skate-skiing movements. This ski’s lively character brings a new approach to gliding and how to manage it. Rossignol’s old first choice, the WCS is the last step before reaching the Premium range. It has had great success these past two years and attracts a very eclectic range of skiers, proving that the only limits are the ones you set yourself.
