Creativity and playfulness meet up with the all-new 2024 Rossignol Sender Free 110. This ski is a continuation and a melding of a few different skis and properties in the Rossignol line, and it makes a lot of sense when we start thinking about the implications and applications of this ski. While the Sender line (other than the Squad) tops out at 106 mm underfoot, and the Blackops line offers a 98 and a 118, this Sender 110 splits the difference in a few different manners. By taking the shape more from the Blackops and the build that’s more reminiscent of the Sender, the 110 is a strong, burly ski that also has an amazing amount of maneuverability and freestyle hints built right in. This is more of an athlete-inspired ski that has some freeride world tour notes to it, but at the same time is accessible enough for recreational skiers looking for a fun-loving snow day ski for a variety of conditions and terrain.

Built with a poplar wood core, this ski has the snappiness and power of the Sender 106 Ti Plus, making it an energetic ski right from the start. We’re also getting their Ti Beam that adds stability and power to the ski, especially in the underfoot zone. One of the more interesting aspects of the build here is that instead of just using damp tech in the very tips and tails, Rossignol is using it in longer formats in the forebody as well as through the back of the ski. These larger zones provide extra vibration absorption that’s needed when the skiing gets rough and rugged. To balance that damp feel, they also use their Diagofiber to add power and pop. This cross-hatching of fibers makes for a snappy feel that adds to the lighter swing weight and the fantastic snap that comes out of each and every turn. If you’re looking for float, the Air Tip keeps the front of the ski up and out of the snow, allowing for maximum flotation with a lighter weight feel. That said, it’s got some heft to it, tipping the scales at 2200 grams per ski in the 184 cm length.

In terms of shaping, this ski most certainly falls into the wide twin tip category, and we’re all about it. At 110 mm underfoot, the 140 mm tips and 133 mm tails generate a 20-meter turn radius, keeping the ski drifty and smeary no matter the conditions or terrain. With only a 7 mm difference between tips and tails, this ski is pretty symmetrical and balanced—two things that add a lot of flavor to this already spicy ski. Available in 176, 184, and 191 cm lengths, it’s pretty big, and somewhat reserved for bigger or more aggressive skiers. As a twin tip, we’re seeing some decent, although not super-dramatic rocker and splay. The tips and tails are fairly similar looking, again leading to that balanced and symmetrical feel and character. Switch riding is a breeze thanks to this shape and profile, unleashing the creative aspect of many skiers’ wants and dreams.

This new ski is sure to make an impact on this upcoming ski season. It’s already had competitive success, and now it’s time to take those results and move them into the mainstream. Rossignol does a great job in combining forces with their already successful skis and creating something new and different for a variety of skiers. While it’s best suited for advanced and expert skiers who find themselves in steep, challenging, and deep snow most of the time, there’s some real-world recreational applications here as well. For us here in Vermont, this is a bit more specific of a ski for deeper days, and that’s okay. When you do choose to take them out, you’ll be rewarded with an amazing blend of flotation, playfulness, and creativity.
