Assume the "HP" stands for hardpack, and you will get an indication of where the Pursuit feels most at home. "Surprisingly agile and very stable," said Ertl of the ski designed for frontside power in a user-friendly package. To blend the two characteristics, Rossignol adds subtle tip rocker along with an oversized tip and tail for easy turn initiation in a variety of turn shapes. World Cup-inspired construction of traditional sidewalls, wood core and a layer of titanium provide stability and edge grip. Though the titanium adds stiffness, H Technology adds a softening slit in the metal at the tip and tail, contributing to the Pursuit's smooth feel. "A bit stiff for bumps, but excels at carving," said Mahon. "It gets on edge with ease and links arcs effortlessly."
