The Avenger 82 Basalt is one of the best true value skis on the market today. At 82mm underfoot the Basalt gives you plenty of waist width for blasting through the crud and broken snow that can accumulate on the hard pack as well as some float for light powder without being too slow edge to edge. Rossi's wood core, basalt laminate, and sandwich sidewall construction give the 82 Basalt enough torsional rigidity for all but the heaviest skiers. The oversize sidecut make this ski a dream for rocketing down groomers both quick, tight turns, and longer more giant slalom turns. Full sidewalls give the 82 Basalt enough edge grip to hold a solid edge on the ice without being too demanding or too much work for an intermediate. Rossignol's power turn camber gives you plenty of energy and rebound for skier that still enjoys a traditional cambers ski. Plenty of ski for an aggressive frontside skier that will spend most of their time on the hard pack but still a solid option for those who will venture off trail, the Rossignol Avenger 82 Basalt Skis are simply unbeatable.

                  Hey, Trey here. I just got off of Rossi's Avenger 82 Carbon with Basalt weave. I like this ski a lot, I'm going to give it five out of five stars in this category. I skied the TI version which is a little bit stiffer, little heavier and at Mach speeds it's great. But this ski all the way up to Mach speed is so much more playful, tons of energy, lighter weight, easier on you, you could ski all day ripping on the groomers and rip through the crud. I say for that solid intermediate to the casual expert skier is going to love this ski.

                        Hey! Thom here with the Rossignol Avenger 82 Basalt. This is a really cool ski. I give this thing 4/5 stars. Similar to the 82 TI in terms of the shape but they take away the metal laminate and do a basalt woven titanol layer. It makes the ski a little bit more lively. Also, a little softer, definitely for your solid and intermediate even through your advanced level skier which is not pushing it quite is hard or maybe a little bit lighter weight. It's a really solid ski, very responsive, the only downside about it was at the top of the speed you were a little unsure if it was really going to stay there with you but for somebody who is doing all mountain cruising on blues and blacks, the front side skier it's going to be a light responsive ski.

                              Hey my name is Sean. I just skied the Rossignol Avenger 82 Basalt. I give this ski a 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. it's great for that intermediate all the way up to expert skier and was great down the slopes. I challenged it down the hill, it carved like a champ! It had great rebound and initiated turns smoothly and solid. It popped me right into the next carving turn. I had fun on this ski, one of the best skis I have skied from Rossignol today. I give it a 4 1/2 out of 5 stars to be great for the intermediate all the way up to expert skier.

                                Hello,
                                I am currently skiing in the Northeast (New Hampshire) all on groomed blues and relatively easy Blacks but fell comfortable at high speeds with good control. I guess I am somewhere between Intermediate and Advanced Intermediate...Haven't really become proficient at getting up on the edges to carve. I am trying to decide between the Avenger 82 and the Experience 88. My gut tells me the 88s might be more ski than I need. What do you think?

                                Thanks!

                                  From what you have described the Rossignol Avenger 82's would be the more ideal model for you. I also believe the Experience 88's would simply be more than you need in your ski.

                                I am just over 220lbs (usually in the range of 225/230), will these bindings be ok for me? (Advance skier, will only use them on piste)

                                  While you will be able to use these bindings, I would recommend looking for a model of ski with a heavier duty binding (max DIN of 13 at least) to be safe. Too much stress on the Rossignol Avenger 82 skis and bindings may cause the housing to crack.

                                  These Rossignol Avenger 82 Basalt Skis will handle most conditions, will offer some float in light powder, but will be ideal for use on the groomers, but will be a solid option if you venture off trail

                                Hi--I'm coming back to skiing regularly after some 20 years (I lived in the tropics and then in the Midwest) of very intermittent trips to the slopes. I would once have called myself an advanced skier, but my middle aged legs are no longer as quick or strong as they once were and I have probably slid back to an "advanced intermediate" (i'm not very comfortable anymore on steep, ungroomed trails). Now that I am skiing regularly again, I hope to regain my previous skill level (and perhaps exceed it).

                                Now to my question--I now live in the Pacific Northwest and mostly ski on Mt. Hood. Although I don't do ski these trails now, there are lots of thick powder and off-piste possibilities. Would these skis be able to handle ungroomed runs and off piste conditions in the deep wet powder of the Cascades? In other words, would I be able to use these skis as I take my skiing to the next level in this part of the country? They do seem to be just what I'm looking for.

                                  At 82mm underfoot, these skis are a great intro to the wider all mountain category. If you plan to spend most of your time on piste but will dabble in the powder or ungroomed areas, the Rossignol Avenger 82 will be a great ski for you. If you plan to spend more time off trail or in powder, I would recommend something a bit fatter, maybe 90mm to 95mm underfoot.

                                I already own boots. Size 29.5 Atomic Hawx and am looking to get some all mountain skis. I ski in the Northeast (mostly Vermont and New Hampshire). I am 6' 1" and about 178lbs. I ski mainly mostly intermediate and advanced runs and like high speeds. I would say I am a intermediate/advanced skier. Would you recommend this ski and what size ski would you recommend?

                                How do I go about getting the binding to fit the boots that I already own. Would I need top take these into a shop or is it easy enough to do on one's own?

                                  For the conditions and type of skiing you will be doing, the Rossignol Avenger 82 skis would be an awesome choice. I would recommend either the 170cm length or the 177cm length, depending on whether you prefer sharper response and tighter control (170cm) or higher speeds and more stability (177cm). For setting the bindings, you will need to take the skis and your boots into a shop to be set by a trained technician. Bindings should never be set yourself unless you are a certified technician.

                                Getting back to downhill skiing after 15 years off (into x-c performance skiing these days). Used to be a downhill maniac, not an expert, but good enough to ski the East on slalom racing 205 cm set (circa 1985). Looking for the most versatile ski able some quick turns on steep terrain and moderate moguls and long GS type arches on wide groomed slopes.
                                Never skied shaped skis.
                                Will be used occasionally, maybe a few times a year East only, so the price is a consideration.

                                  For a ski that can handle a wide variety of conditions and skiing styles, the Rossignol Avenger 82's are an awesome choice. At 82mm underfoot, they can still handle groomers with quick response and stability, while still being wide enough to head off piste for some powder conditions as well. Overall, this sounds exactly like it would be up your alley!

                                  At your weight, I would recommend a binding with a higher maximum DIN setting. Ideally something with a max of 14 would be a better fit.

                                  If you are purchasing Skis, Boots, and Bindings all on the same order, we do offer a Binding Mount and Adjustment service during certain times in the season. If you search for 'ski binding service', it should come up in your results. You can also contact us directly if you need more information or further assistance.
