Rossignol Blackops Escaper (2022)
DescriptionThis is a pre-order product. ETA late May 2021
The Blackops range still remains something of a mystery. How can a ski be so playful, yet also so capable in demanding conditions? The Blackops Escaper is an all-mountain ski with an appetite for fresh snow. At 94mm underfoot, you won't dread those firmer days for a second. When the snow does start to pile up, the tip and tail rocker will have you making some of the best powder turns of your life. The lighter Paulownia woodcore along with Air Tip make for an easy going ride all day long. Diago Fiber around the core helps to keep the skis torsionally rigid for added stability and increased edge hold. The Escaper tackles any terrain with a freeride mentality, get ready to see the whole mountain in a new light. This is also one of the best options for a hybrid touring setup to tackle New Zealand's backcountry.

Tip & Tail Rocker
Camber underfoot with rocker in the tip and tail provides the best balance between edge hold, float, and maneuverability. From firm snow to powder, this is the best freeride profile.
Rectangular Sidewall constructions feature a horizontal layering of core materials (wood, fiberglass, metal, etc.) combined with full-length vertical sidewalls to deliver optimized edge grip, precision, balance, and power.
Air tip is a specially designed insert that lowers the weight of the tip and brings the weight back underfoot for a lower swing weight.
Paulownia woodcore for lighter weight and a lively feel.
Fiberglass weave for added torsional rigidity without blocking the true flex.
Damp tech is designed to reduce unwanted vibration and deflection of the ski for the smoothest ride possible.
The core is now pushed further into the tip for a design that pushes through variable snow with less tip deflection and chatter while adding to durability.
