Rossignol Essential Ski

Let us introduce you to The World’s First Recyclable Ski! Thanks to Rossignol working with a recycling specialist, we are entering a new era of sustainability in ski design.

While there are many eco-conscious efforts in the ski industry (from some manufacturers using clean energy to power their factories, to others using non-toxic glues to bond ski layers), it is French brand Rossi that has made the leap into the ‘recyclability’ of the skis themselves. After 10 years of development, they’ve created a ski that is almost fully recyclable, at a whopping seven to eight times more recyclable than a traditional alpine ski. “Yes, but how does it ski?” I hear you cry. Well, we can report that it absolutely shreds.

With a similar sidecut to Rossignol’s Hero skis and with a powerful Ti damped flex, the 69cm-underfoot Essential pumps out short/medium-sized carves with relish. This is not a ski for skidding around on with your head in the clouds – this is a proper ski that wants to be ridden. We think the wood topsheet looks ace, too.

what they say?

Designed with sustainability in mind, the Rossignol Essential Skis represent a shift in mindset. From the energy used in production to the materials in the ski and the ability to recycle it, the Essential ski sets a new eco-minded standard. Featuring a total of 73% recycled, bio-based and natural materials, the ski is built in France using renewable energy. The process and materials allow for 77% of the ski to be recycled — that’s ten times the rate of conventional skis. At 69mm underfoot, the high-performance carve-ready build includes full sidewalls, double titanal reinforcement, a ertified wood core and a high-density sintered base. Join the movement. Be the change.
