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 backcountry 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 backcountry 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.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I purchased these skis for the upcoming season, and haven't used them yet, so here are my initial impressions: They actually do come with Rossignol Control Step In Classic Binding. I made the mistake of purchasing these same bindings and was pleasantly surprised when the skis came with them. The bindings seem solidly built and easy to use. The skis were purchased for classic skiing on the track, and touring around various spots in UT and i really think I made the right choice. They also seem to be solidly built and like they won't really require much maintenance. I will update this review after I been out on them.
Expensive; no bindings included
I can’t comment on the quality of the skis, but I just would like to warn potential buyers that these don’t come with bindings. Granted, it states it on the product info, which was my mistake, but you can buy a pair without bindings for a much cheaper price point at several other big retailers, and you could even get a pair cheaper that also include bindings. Ultimately, purchasing these skis from BC may require you to spend up to $100 more than most place after getting additional bindings. - Just a quick warning to avoid the hassle and save Backcountry the expense of paying for return shipping and restocking.
Great feel with solid edging
New to cross country skiing and these are perfect for control and edging when the snow is less than perfect here in Alaska. The grip up hills is on point and the control during descending is made easier in my opinion. If you want an on and off track ski for enjoying some outdoor fun then this is a great choice.
