Reviewer Heyman

"A true all-mountain ski is as good off-piste as it is on-piste. Stiff enough to remain stable at top speed, flexible enough for comfort in poor circumstances. It is essential that the perfect all-mountain ski performs well in all conditions."

Grip, stability, float, comfort, everything


The Rossignol Experience 84 is a true all-mountain ski that performs well in all circumstances. On the groomers its outstanding edge grip makes you go through corners horizontally, your inside hand on the snow. At top speed the Experience 84 remains stable even though it is flexible enough to vary in radius, which makes it very playful. At moderate speed it keeps turning without effort. And in deep snow you float and turn easily. This ski is good at everything!

Outstanding compromise

So the Rossignol Experience 84 is a compromise of all great characteristics of an all-mountain ski. And I'm certain that it will bring great pleasure to a vast range of skiers from intermediates to advanced, who are in search of one ski for the whole season that can do it all. But as compromises go, the Experience 84 isn't brilliant. Therefore I give it a 4 star rating.

Rossignol about the Experience 84

"The lightweight and versatile EXPERIENCE range represents the perfect convergence of racing and freeride technologies. Ski, explore and above all enjoy!", says Rossignol", says Rossignol. Yes indeed there is a lot to enjoy.

"I like rocker for easy turning and float off-piste. Tip vibration doesn't bother me at all. Of course versatility is a condition for a quality all-mountain ski. It depends on snow conditions if I prefer frontside skis."

Versatile and forgiving


The Rossignol Experience 84 year 2015 is new in the Rossignol all-mountain series. Both in design and specifications, as in the Experience serie. One might say it is the successor of the Experience 83, but if you look closer it is totally different. The airtip from the 7 freeride serie has found its way to the Experience serie for more lightness and versatility. Plus more focus of weight under the feet to get more control. The whole trip felt fine with the Experience 84, nothing extreme, good for intermediate skiers and easy days.

All-mountain ski, best at medium speed

Rossignol Experience 84 is an all-mountain frontside ski for shorter turns. Comfort is an important factor for this ski. Decent speed and carve on groomers, with a forgivingness that lets the intermediate skier have a fantastic day. The Experience 84 is a bit stiffer than the old Experience 78 and that pays off in better performance on groomers at higher speed. And at this width it is still easy to switch. Also while skiing slower it is easy to steer and slide if you want. Comfort all over until you take it off-piste where you need to put more effort in it. That's a choice of course.

Rossignol about the 2015 Experience 84 ski

"THE ULTIMATE VERSATILITY. Broaden your playground! With the new EXPERIENCE range, the only limit is your imagination. EXPERIENCE skis adapt to every type of terrain and all snow conditions. They provide high stability and are designed to break down barriers, so make the most of your day on the slopes with friends or family. The lightweight and versatile EXPERIENCE range represents the perfect convergence of racing and freeride technologies. Ski, explore and above all enjoy!", says Rossignol about the Experience serie. They do adapt to snow conditions, which makes it such a comfortable ski and perfect for intermediate levels.
