Sporting a mixture of metal, carbon and fibreglass, and featuring a pretty interesting tip and tail construction, Rossignol have delivered the Senders to do one thing and one thing only: “Send”. Signed, sealed and delivered, these skis feature an impressive blend of power and low weight meaning you’ll be able to confidently take on a variety of terrain.
Rossignol Sender 104 Ti Build
Let’s take a look at how Rossignol has looked to build such a confidence-inspiring ski. First of all, the Sender 104 Ti has a Paulownia wood core. This core, while remaining lightweight, offers a good deal of pop and power when flexed. Backing up the less damp (compared to other core constructions) properties of Paulownia is Rossignol’s vibration dampening tech, which helps to reduce ski chatter at high speeds.
“Rossignol has looked to decrease weight in the tips and tails through their Air Tip technology”
Speaking of chatter, Rossingnol has looked to decrease weight in the tips and tails through their Air Tip technology. As you can see through our studio photos, this technology (patented by Rossi) creates a honeycomb-like structure towards the tips. The gaps between each honeycomb is empty (that’s where the ‘Air Tip’ name comes from). This reduces weight, while the unique shape of the honeycomb means it still retains a good level of strength.
