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.

This lighter tip and tail construction results in fantastic redistribution of weight, moving the centre of gravity closer underfoot (where you’re going to be laying down the power), while reducing swing weight. This, in turn, results in easier turn initiation and quicker scrubbing of speed. It also means there’s less chance of your tips and tails chattering when you bring the skis back up to speed.

The Sender Ti has also been given a rectangular sidewall which features a horizontal layering of the core for precision, power and optimal edge grip. The all-new shape has been designed for modern all-mountain skiing where slashes and smears are just as important as carving and charging. The Sender 104 TI will lock into turns instantly and let go when you want it to allowing for a fun and creative, yet still purposeful, ride.

If you’re looking at buying this ski then you want to make sure you can use it. It’ll be great on piste but if that’s all you’re using it for then it’d be like buying a Porsche and driving around your local Tesco car parking lot. As cool as you think you might look doing this, everyone will know you don’t know where the sport button is.

The Sender hasn’t been designed for track days, but they have been designed for ripping across the entire mountain. A true all-mountain ski this, it’s definitely worthy of your time and consideration if you reckon you’ve got what it takes.
