The Curated Take
The Rossignol Black Ops 92 is the perfect ski for the intermediate skier who's progressing to advanced. It's ideal for pushing the boundaries into off-piste freeride terrains like moguls, trees. and even dabbling in the terrain park without being overpowering. It will never demand a skier to go faster than their comfortable with or require being muscled out of locked in turns. The ease of turn initiation and well balanced combination of surfiness and steady tracking are the main draws in addition to the attractive top sheet. It does only have a simple Paulownia wood as the core though and in spite of the vertical sidewalls that add torsional rigidity, it does hit its speed limit pretty quickly going full tilt, straight line down the face of the hill, so those with a pension for keeping their foot on the gas pedal might look elsewhere.

- Versatile for all mountain skiing in all of but the most extreme conditions
- The paulownia wood core has its limits at top speed without the reinforcement of stiffer core materials
