More Info:

I grew up as a freeride skier, and have been in a committed relationship with twin-tipped skis for most of my life. But I first realized I was “flat curious” upon locking eyes with the quiver of skis available in this test. And following my initial taste of flat-tailed skis, I couldn’t stop thinking about them. Case in point: Rossignol’s Sender 104 Ti, which had an uncanny ability to finish a turn at speed—stable, with a lot of energy generated from a loaded edge, in a race ski-like way, but much more forgiving. Its medium-stiff flex paired well with its versatile width, and I could see it serving as a one-ski-quiver for an all-mountain skier. It handled crud remarkably well, but I found myself having the most fun on rolling, groomed terrain. I had to work for my turns a bit more in tighter, steeper terrain, but believe me—I became a better skier because of it. So if you’re an intermediate to advanced skier looking to improve, the Sender may just be your golden ticket. —NICHOLAS LAMPARD
