Description

A do-it-all ski.

With the lively Rossignol S86 Ski, you’ll carve mad turns on groomers, slice through powder when you head out the gates, and rail down steep tree-lines. This carving machine loves to rip around the whole mountain and show you it can handle any terrain you throw its way.
  • Titanium sandwiched around a poplar wood core (wood from renewable tree farms) allows for a stable ski at high speed, increases the S86’s durability, and facilitates rebound
  • AmpTek technology combines traditional camber with an early rise in the tip and tail, which delivers exceptional energy and edge grip as well as improves turn initiation and flotation in any conditions
  • Reverse sidecut allows for a buttery-and-slashy feel in the powder and precision on hardpack
  • Freeride tip (65mm) improves turn initiation and flotation in all conditions
  • Vibration Absorbing System dampens vibrations, adds control and stability, and enhances contact with the snow

Great all mountain ski

5 stars for this ski. I demo-ed this ski in the first day of fresh packed-powder (the day after a powder dump) in Steamboat last weekend and it performed excellently. I'm 5'9", type II skier and the 162 was very manageable and very easy to turn, it actually skis alot shorter than 162. The Freeride tip helps keep you afloat in the soft stuff (tip rocker of 245) but the camber under foot (waist is obviously 86) provides good edge grip for a freeride ski. This ski is very versatile in the trees, bumps, and groomers, and does a decent job in the powder (not as good as the S3 though obviously). I ski in the northeast and do a few trips out west each year, if you are looking for 1 ski to try and do it all, highly consider this ski.

Could I mount these up with tele bindings...

Could I mount these up with tele bindings (22 designs Hammerhead) and telemark on these? Would they perform any differently with tele bindings on them?

Responded on

I have not linked any tele-turns on these, but I know a few who do and they love them! I am looking into the same power set up with the Hammerheads. Good luck!

Responded on

A bit late now but for future reference. I used this ski with the Hammerhead for my patrol ski about 30 days this year, and I was very satisfied with the combination. It takes several times to get used to the ski coming from a softer ski. In the end I had good experiences carving groomed runs and even had a good results racing on them. I do think Rossignol over estimates the balance between on and off piste, I would plan on sticking to the groomed terrain with these, there are better choices for powder and crusts.

What length do you suggest? 178 cm or 186 cm? I'm 155 lbs. 5-11" expert, but never skied anything with a rocker.

Hey there,

It depends where you are skiing and the type of riding you do for sure. But generally speaking with these rockered skis, at least when we are talking early rise, they will ski shorter. Because of this you're going to want to size up. Nothing too crazy but say you're used to a 178 cambered ski,then yes you would go up to the 186.

Perfect Every day Western Ski

I couldn't agree more with Scott. The S86 (same as last year's SC87 except for top sheet graphics) is one heck of a fun ski. I too skied the Prophet 100 all last year (30 days in Utah) and it is a great ski, but it can't compare to this Rossi's maneuverability, edge grip, playfulness, and forgiveness,. The Rossi is so much more effortless and fun to ski, I fee like I've rediscovered why I fell in love with skiing in the first place. This ski is the perfect everyday resort ski for Utah - it is not the best tool for snorkel deep pow days, but for the other 90% of the winter it is flawless.

one-ski quiver

these are solid skis. to give some background, i ski mostly in tahoe which is where i put the S86 through its paces. it excelled everywhere on the mountain, groomers, light pow, crud, you name it. the metal in the top sheet combined with the early rise tip and tail make for a super smooth ride and i never felt like the S86 was bucking me off, and i'm a lightweight at 145lbs 5'9". i was riding the Line Prophet 100s before this, and can honestly say that the S86 is a superior ski. it's way more maneuverable on the mountain in just about any condition. solid skis!

Responded on

Scott - just wondering what size S86 you're skiing. I'm almost the same exact size as you and have been skiing a 170 for many years but was thinking of sizing down with a wider ski, but the 162 seems like it would be too short.

I am trying to chose between these Rossies,...

Posted on

I am trying to chose between these Rossies, Atomic Access or Salomon Enduro as my all around skis - I have some Atomic GS skis, K2 Sidestash and Dynafit Manaslu - but seeking fun all mountain planks to do the day to day stuff -

Responded on

i have these in the 178cm length and after spending two days on them, i can say that this is a solid one ski quiver. i ski tahoe and this past weekend put the S86s thru crud, groomers, light pow (~3-4"), and even ice patches. the low sidecut radius makes turning a breeze and the early rise tip and tail really help dampen vibration. i was riding the Line Prophet 100s before these and consider the S86 head and shoulders above that ski. can't speak to the models you listed in your question, but these are really great skis.
