The Rossignol Evo OT 65 Positrack Skis are built on a similar platform as the popular Rossignol BC 65, making it narrow enough to glide efficiently in the classic track, but wide enough to stay afloat when you're setting a track of your own. The Evo OT 65 is for that skier that would rather spend their time exploring the backountry than laboring over their bases to get the perfect finish to blaze laps around the classic track. A smooth flex, partial metal edges, and a low-maintenance Positrack base all work in concert to deliver exceptional backountry performance, superior control in variable snow, and a predictable feel whether you're making kick-turns up a steep slope, or tracking across a frozen lake. The ski comes pre-mounted with a NIS plate and Rottefella Touring Auto Combi binding, making it compatible with NNN nordic boots.

- Q & A
I demoed a step down from this ski and really liked it, but decided I wanted something burlier for breaking trail in the backcountry. This ski has a nice solid feel without being too heavy -- excited to take it out and explore!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This ski has performed perfectly as my off track x-country ski. With the metal edge only being in the center I still get the edge with a shorter ski. I haven't used thease skis on groomed trail, off trail the track beautifully even in 12-14" deep snow, there have been a few times in knee deep snow that I wished for a wider ski. If you are looking to work your way through the trees or work your way up a snow covered dirt road and carve your way back down, these will do the job.
