Jack of all trades that just happens to master them, too!!
Snow melts so you can't ski any more :o(
Equally at home on and off piste, the Rossignol Bandit B2 will have you skiing anything that looks white and cold. A true all mountain weapon that is equally at home on a GS slalom piste as it is on an unpisted monster with 8 inch deep crud.
Edge to edge is amazingly quick for a ski this wide.
A little soft to cope with off piste. But it doesn't chatter at high speed on piste like some off piste, or even on piste, skis can.
It has great flotation on deep crusty snow and ensures you have as much control as possible under the deepest of conditions.
Has a lot of grip and can handle icy pistes as well as any other ski I've seen.
I'm trying to think of a weakness that this ski has, but I can't. The only thing I can think of is that winter has to end which stops you using them. It's such an easy ski to use that it'll get you trying slopes you wouldn't have considered in the past.
Some magazines called this the best ski in 2004 and that Rossignol did the impossible by improving the Bandit XX. After trying these skis all I can say is that those magazines understated how good this ski is.
Cost: UK approx £460 to £480 including bindings. I bought mine in France for £420.
A superb ski for any level from intermediate to adrenalin addicted expert!!
