The Rossignol Evo XC 50 is a versatile cross country ski that is appropriate for use on groomed trails. These skis are designed to be user-friendly for recreational level XC skiers who want to make it as easy as possible to get out and enjoy the outdoors on their skis. Rossignol constructs these skis to have more supple tips and tails, which gives them a more forgiving feel compared to race style XC skis, a confidence inspiring connection to the snow, and actually boosts their ability in off trail situations as well. They use a waxless Positrack base that provides excellent grip for ascents and offers smooth, catch free glide on the downhills or when you’re trying to maintain momentum on flats. For anyone looking for a classic XC ski that can be used on groomed trails the Evo XC 50 is a great choice.
