The 2023 Rossignol Black Ops 118 is the widest offering in the Black Ops line up at 118-millimeters underfoot and is a freestyle/powder ski. Designed with direct input from Rossignol team members Parker White and Chris Logan, this ski is ready for full send mode. And if you have seen these guys ski, you'll understand what we are talking about. Stomp a big landing, smear and pivot through deep powder for those coveted face shots, or float and bounce your way down stacked pillow lines. Playfull all the time but solid when needed. What makes the Black Ops 118 stand out from other skis in its wide-waisted category is the 5-6 millimeters of camber underfoot, giving it more camber than we typically see in a ski this wide. This gives the ski good grip when you do encounter hard snow, or blown off conditions that you may encounter in high risk, technical spots. We all know that in most cases, it can't be a powder day every day, and you will eventually have to encounter firm snow at least when you have to get back to the lift. With a Poplar Wood core, you get a great balance of weight, stability and playfulness while also being environmentally friendly with its PEFC certification, which guarantees that your skis were harvested from sustainable economic management. The Rossignol Black Ops 118 delivers pure powder performance while combining progressive trick stomping needs.
