The Rossignol Blackops 98 Open Skis sit right in the middle of Blackops line up with a 98- millimeter ski waist width. This width is considered by many industry experts to be the ultimate for true all-mountain skiing, and we here at Ski Essentials could not agree more. At this waist width, you can handle any snow conditions. From groomers, to bumps, steeps, trees and powder, this is as close to a one-ski quiver as you can get. And because of its twinish shape in the tail, you can easily spin, slide rails and boxes and hold your own in the park as well. Rectangular sidewall construction offers a combination of materials and walls down the entire length of the ski to give the skier increased grip, balance and power. Built with Poplar wood core that gives the ski liveliness and grip, it's also PEFC Certified which guarantees that the wood milled form the forests was sustainably produced through strict forest management procedures. If you only had to buy one ski to throw in the car for a day trip or to pack on a week-long ski trip not really knowing what to expect for conditions, the Blackops 98 would be an ideal choice. Skiers searching for that elusive daily driver ski with inspired freeride flair should look no further than the Rossignol Blackops 98 Open Skis.
