2022 Rossignol BLACKOPS Sender Skis
Rossignol Black Ops Sender Skis
Like its stiffer brother, the Rossignol Black Ops Sender skis are built and shaped for deep snow and rowdy lines and everything in between. With a stated 104 mm waist width in the 178 cm length, the skis are made for the deeper end of the snow spectrum but that doesn't preclude them from performing strongly on groomers and firmer snow as well. In fact, they have an impressive on-trail character, regardless of width or shape. When it comes in handy, however, the size and shape and profile are perfectly suited for the softer stuff. That's where the Sender really lights it up. Tip and tail rocker will keep you afloat while the camber underfoot not only provides pop and energy but also edge grip in technical terrain. It's nice to know that you have that capability when the going gets sketchy, and the Sender is built to handle all of those unexpected inconsistencies in the snow at pretty much any speed. Built with a Paulownia wood core, Air Tip inserts, and a carbon/fiberglass laminate, the skis are very stable and well-built for their weight. They're on the lighter side of the competitor's models, so lighter skiers or advancing athletes will get the best match in terms of performance. For anyone looking for that wider one-ski quiver or a powder ski for deep days, the 2021 Rossignol Black Ops Sender skis are the perfect tools for the job.

Thanks for your inquiry and we appreciate your feedback on our videos!
The Nordica Enforcers do have metal in them, (A dual laminate) so this would be a stiffer ski than the Rossi Senders which have no metal in them but their core is reinforced with a Carbon/Fiberglass laminate which does add some stiffness as well as snap and pop. We did mention that the new Enforcers are bit more playful than the older version, but its still a stiff ski that is all there. If you are looking for more smearability, pivoting and slashing, we would lean towards the Black Ops Sender. Softer and bit more approachable, but still damp and plenty of performance when things frim up.
Hope this helps and think snow!
