Rossignol has designed a ski with sustainability in mind, the Essential Ski is now the world’s most recyclable ski. It is constructed with the least amount of materials as possible focusing on recycled, natural certified, and bio-sourced materials to reduce environmental impact and maximize recyclability.
Conventional skis have an average recyclability rate of just 7% and with the release of the Essential ski, Rossignol sets a new benchmark in sustainable ski development to a 77% recyclability rate. All the while maintaining the performance and durability traits Rossignol consumers have come to expect.
The Essential ski from Rossignol is designed from 73% recycled, certified and bio-sourced materials and using no solvents or water.
With an oversized sidecut and a full titanal layer the Rossignol Essential skis offer a solid mechanism for maneuverability, power and control in extreme conditions or at high-speed.
