Rossignol – Pursuit 700 Ti
Another carry over from last season when Rossignol decided to upgrade their piste range. This year it’s the turn of the freeride models, but we’re keeping the Pursuit 700 in our picks because it’s so smooth and such stunning value for the performance – probably the best you can get at this price point and the one above. The tech includes a layer of basalt – yes, the rock – as a damper, which is a novel approach that seems to have worked. The start of the turn on a pair of Pursuits is a thing of joy as that oversized tip hooks in and forces the ski to assume its turn shape. As a ski we’re picking for pure entertainment it still needs working hard, but not as vigorously as the 800 – we’ve picked this particular model from the range to avoid getting too exhausted. After all pistes can be cruised, too.
