The Rossignol Temptation 77 is and always will be a fantastic ski for the true beginner up to the solid intermediate skier looking for a lightweight ski that is easy to turn. Rossignol's Auto Turn Rocker is designed to initiate turns very easily with the tip rocker. The Camber underfoot will give you stability in the middle of a turn. Rocker in the tail will release you from turns with little to no effort or allow you to skid turns if you do not carve yet. The Temptation 77 has the Air Tip that pulls material away from the tip of the ski to lower the swingweight and improve mobility. The core of the Temptation 77 is a mix of Carbon and Poplar Wood that is very lightweight and forgiving but will give you the stability when you start to push it. Rossignol's Extended Sidecut gives you more effective edge with the faster you ski, and the more angle you place on your edges. The Extended Sidecut is a great game improvement technology that will help teach you to carve comfortably. If you are a beginner or intermediate who wants to improve the Rossignol Temptation is the ski for you.
