For the last 35 years Rossignol has been developing cutting edge race products to help skiers achieve their Nordic skiing goals. Rossignol has worked closely with Race Centers across the country for many years to ensure that consumers have access to the newest greatest cross country race gear. This year is no exception with 22 Rossignol Race Centers across the country.

“We work very closely with the 22 Rossignol Race Centers. Customers can be sure that by visiting one of these shops, they will find a great selection of X-ium skis and boots that will fit their needs perfectly,” says Robert Lazzaroni, Rossignol’s Nordic Division Manager. “A wide variety of ski flexes and boot fits (regular or Low Volume Fit) ensure customers will find exactly what works for them and they can have the ultimate cross country experience.”

The new X-ium Skate package’s weight has decreased by 210 grams. The X-ium ski is slightly shorter for better maneuverability and lighter weight. The new X-ium boot has a new cover lace that is seamless, new lace system, and new heel hold all resulting in better envelopment of the foot and weight reduction. The new X-Celerator binding has a new flexbit system, new closure system and unnecessary material has been removed to decrease the weight. Oneway’s DS 10 Titanium pole is 100% Carbon reinforced with titanium making the pole stiff and ultra light weight. The rabbit strap allows for twice the adjustment of a regular strap and the cork grip provides warmth, comfort and anti-slip grip.

The decreased weight and new technologies make a huge difference for technical skiers and allow them to ski faster and farther then ever before, as proven by the Rossignol teams 2009-2010 race results.
