Description

A real ski for the hardcore element.

The Rossignol Phantom SC97 boasts impeccable big-mountain breeding and the heart of a race ski. The youngest branch on a family tree rooted in the legendary Bandit Series, the Phantom SC97 stands confident as granite among the rockered, capped, new-shape and reverse-camber rookies in the tram line. With race-room wood-core sandwich construction, traditional camber and sidecut, the Phantom brings a samurai sword and ancient warrior traditions to the grade-school fistfight of ski industry innovation. In fact, the only hints this ski is from the present decade are a subtle early-rise tip and a waist width that would have early-90’s shred-heads calling you a cheater.
  • Traditional shape and camber for predictable big-mountain performance
  • VAS Viscoelastic vibration absorption system silences hard-snow chatter
  • Aluminum Sharknose tip insert punches through variable conditions
  • 245mm x 65mm Early Rise improves turn initiation on hardpack and enhances float in powder

I am looking for an everyday working ski...

I am looking for an everyday working ski to mount with NTN. Work on the snow in Oz close to 100 days per season and need a new go to ski that can handle all conditions. Am 5'8", 180lb and high level telemark skier. Thinking SC97 in 178cm...what do you think?

I am 5'8 165 and will be skiing in Summit county. I am looking for a good all mountain ski with an emphasis on the back bowls and glades. I am an expert skier that can ski anything but not always pretty. Think this ski works? If not any other recommendations and any thoughts on size?

Responded on

This ski will be perfect for that. I think these skis are great...They're great!

I forgot to add this but also what size...

I forgot to add this but also what size ski would fit someone who was 5'9?

Thanks

Responded on

That really depends. If you ski big lines or like to go fast, something longer, like the 178cm. If you like turning agility and don't ski too fast, the 170cm. If you weigh a lot (no offense meant), ski fast and hard, then maybe even the 186cm. See, lots of variability. Hit us up with more info about your skiing, and someone can get more accurate for you. Cheers.

If I am 5'9 and 125 lbs will these skis work for me? Also I am probably an advanced intermediate skier

Responded on

From the sizes currently available (170cm and larger) I'd recommend the 170cm. I wouldn't go any longer, as although you may have the height, weight is more important to determining proper ski length and I think you would start to have issues controlling this ski at a longer length.

Knowing what ski/length you have now is also useful information in providing a recommendation for a new ski. A more aggressive skier can handle a longer ski and therefore take advantage of its stability at higher speeds.

Great all mountain ski

This ski shreds in any condition. Rips groomers: I can literally lay things these down and they hold. Edge holds well on ice. Suprisingly quick edge to edge. A little wide for bump skiing but they get me down any mogul field with ease. Float well enough in powder but definately not powder boards. What I really love about these ski is how they handle poor conditions. Chop, ice, slush: I skiid on a half inch layer of desert dust at Snowmass in April 2010 and these things mached through the worst snow conditions I have ever seen, no problem. Not the best backcountry ski(however they are mine) but a great resort ski for ANY day of the year. You definately need to really rip to notice the performance of these skiis. When I bought them I was an intermediate to advanced akiier. Three months later, I can ski anything with confidence and comfort on these puppies. Stiff.

Phantom SC97

Love these skis. I am 6'3" 300 lbs and I have skied on a powder day throught the trees for the first time in my life with these skies. The skis also rock on groomers.

Powder All Day

Bought these skis last week and rode them Saturday through Monday. We had 20+ inches of white smoke powder Saturday and these skis flat out floated on top and made me wish I had bought them at the start of the season. By late afternoon when the uncut was chopped, the sharktooth tip ripped through the crud without any grab or pull. I recommend these skis to anyone skiing double black with deep powder or crud!

THanks for the response. My weight is...

THanks for the response. My weight is between 180/185. The ski length I was looking at was 170, your thoughts anyone?

Responded on

I agree with Rick...at your height and weight (coupled with ski ability), I would go with the 178cm. The 170cm may be good in tight trees, but you are sacrificing other qualities of the ski at such a short length (e.g., stability at speed). Also, if you are trying to become an expert skier that will ski more of the mountain, the 178cm is a better length. Finally, 8cm is roughly 3 inches...hardly an amount that would make sking trees much more difficult.

Any tips on the size I shouold get, I am...

Any tips on the size I shouold get, I am 6 foot, 180/185 and a intermediate skier trying to become an expert. I have always skied shorter for quickness in the trees. any advice would be helpful. Thanks

Responded on

If you're going to be skiing all over the mountain I would go with the 180. The will be more manageable in tight spaces and will still provide ample flotation in deep snow. If you plan on being in mostly wide open areas I would go with the 185. They will be a little more stable and high speeds and give a little bit more flotation but in exchange will be less nimble.

Are these on the "snappier" side of things...

Posted on

Are these on the "snappier" side of things or kinda damp ala the older bandits. Both the 87 and 97 look like ideal all purpose weapons but i dont want them to feel like a mythic rider.

Responded on

you're going to get more of a livelier feel with these given the wood core and metal laminate versus the foam core of the mythic riders so it will be super solid at speed and carve big arcs as well

wham bam thank you ma"am

these are my go to skis when theres a little bit of fluff and mank on the hill. they bust through everything and they really bring my ski wall together. the 87 is great for hardpack and a ankle day, rc112 for fast and long and the 97 is a blast for everything. good turn initiation too. if youre looking for a great ski that can haul you all over the hill look no further

Write your question here...what type of...

Posted on

Write your question here...what type of bindind should i put on them? i am used to a gs racing ski is this ski a good all mt. type ski ? also they are alot shorter than i am used to they are 178 im used to 193 + and so wide under ft. how well can they perform? i hope they will be great in all conditions and terrain or will the width of the ski make them clumsy?

Responded on

In my opinion it they will be less clumsy since they are shorter. The only thing that the width really changes is how long it takes to change from one edge to another...but its not a huge difference. But they will ski way differently from your race skis. As for great in all conditions....(is there such a ski, cause i want it then). In most conditions this ski should do well. But it should do great on groomers and moguls should be easier cause the ski is shorter. And it should do pretty well in powder. It won't have the float of a 120mm under foot but it will still be a lot better than narrow race skis in powder.

Responded on

any of the rossignol axial series will be sweet (xl). these skis will bust through mank and you can still throttle them well, i made the transition from gs skis (radicals) to these with no problem. depending on your size (height weight) i might go a little bigger depending on how badly you wanna toss these suckers.

Responded on

Depending on height and weight you might want to go with the freeski 14 or 15. Both have the metal heel but the 15 has the all metal world cup pivoting toe. Personally I would go with the 15 for a more solid toe piece and slightly smoother release but i realize budget can be a factor so in that case the 14 would be the better choice. hope this helps

Quiver Killer

Another surprise from Rossignol. This ski is so solid everywhere. It absolutely dominates in every snow condition. I take it in the moguls, groom, powder and crud and I can't decide what it does best. Buy it!
