The Rossignol Evo XT 55 skis with bindings are a great option for the beginner or intermediate level cross-country skier who wants a recreational style ski to get them outside and into the sport. The Evo line up has been completely redesigned and developed to make skiing easier and more reliable for a better overall experience. Shorter than traditional classic skis, and equipped with innovative sidecuts and camber, as well as a Rocker effect, the EVO XT 55 is the perfect solution for all-terrain Nordic skiing. The emphasis on this ski is for pure pleasure, with both maneuverability and accessibility in mind. An AR Plus Waxless Pattern on the base of the ski provides the perfect blend of glide and retention. A Hybrid Techno Cap incorporates lacquered edges for resistance and weight savings. It also provides just the right amount of resistance when you find yourself on an incline but lets you glide with ease with no hang ups for consistent motion and movements. The mix of a Wood Core with air channels provides a lightweight feel. The Short Ski Concept allow you to maneuver effortlessly and accelerate with ease when you need to. The Evo XT 55 offers a balance of torsional rigidity and supple flex feel from tip to tail for all-conditions stability. The Tour step in bindings are fully compatible with all NNN and Prolink boot soles. This is a great entry-level package that that you will appreciate on the snow and in your wallet.
