The 2020 Rossignol Hero Non-FIS GS skis are a great choice for U14-21 USSA and Masters racers. These skis have a tighter radius than the FIS version, making them an easier ski to handle on USSA course sets. Current USSA regulations for U14's through U21's require a GS ski that is greater than 17 meters in radius, with no ski length requirement. The strongest skis for the strongest athletes will still be the FIS designed skis, (e.g. the 193 and 188 lengths) but for athletes who are younger and/or less powerful, or athletes skiing shorter GS course sets, this type of Non-FIS ski can be the ideal tool for achieving great results.

New for 2020, Rossignol's FIS GS skis come with the one piece Look R22 race plate for increased edge grip. The 2020 Rossi Hero FIS GS Non-FIS Ski delivers a genuine advantage through power turn rocker, Cascade Tip and world cup laminate wood and Titanal construction These attributes provide quicker turn initiation, super-fast edge changes and incredible stability.
Rossi skis come from the manufacturer's factory raceroom not fully prepared for racing. Rossi GS skis are set at the factory with a 1 degree base bevel and 1 degree side angle. Peak Performance recommends for GS skis a .7 degree base bevel, 3 degree side angle, sidewalls pulled from the edge, and race wax applied. In our drop-down menu above, we offer several levels of race preparation to choose from as options. Please refer to the Race Tuning & Services
page for more information and advanced options, and in your order notes please tell us what base angle you prefer if you are choosing the Elite or World Cup Prep add on. Premium prep does not include base edge modification.
The 2020 Rossi skis are designed to be used with the new 2020 Look Rockerace bindings - SPX 12 Rockerace or SPX 15 Rockerace. This a departure from the past few years of Look and Rossignol Rockerflex bindings. The new two piece Look Rockerace bindings will drive more power to the skis and provide better edge grip than the older Rockerflex iterations of these bindings.
