Description: Rossignol Evo Glade NIS AR Cross Country Skis

The Rossignol Evo Glade NIS AR Cross Country Skis 2013 are handy skis made for leisurely skiers.

The skis are wax-less so they are usable in any snow conditions, making them very adaptable and sturdy. The wax-less nature also creates a great kick and glide. The Rossignol Evo Skis are also well suited with Nordic Integrated System (NIS), which uses no screws and reinforces the veracity of the skis.

Paula R: Hello, These skis have a fishscale section on the underside. They are waxless skis, although my first day out, I gave them a coat of wax because the snow was really sticky. They have been fine since then but I think one waxes even the waxless skis periodically, Dec 18, 2013

MICHAEL P: These are wax less skis. There is a sort of fish scale pattern on the bottom of the skis. I bought these for the 2012/13 ski season, and I thought they performed well. A good value for the price! Dec 20, 2013

Paul B: Just bought these, used 3 times LOVE them, nice glide but also a great grip for my kick.

Answer 1) yes they are wax-less with an interesting pattern which was a proprietary pattern for Fischer until the year these were made. It consists of less aggressive to more aggressive bite from front to back....So not a true fish scale but similar idea, yes.

2) yes I did wax the glide area of the ski with the appropriate temp glide wax the third time out and it did give them better glide.
One warning, they come with the mounting base for the binding but not the binding itself, remember to purchase those too, I call and asked a rep to verify the correct binding was being purchased.

Happy gliding

Heidi T: I'd say waxless. And, yes, they have a textured bottom under the foot. They are fine in smooth country. If you need more control for slowing down and turning you might want to upgrade to something with a metal edge and shaped. I wish I did anyway. Dec 19, 2013

Benjam: The skis are waxless by industry terminology. However, it is not uncommon to put "glide wax" on the tip/tail sections to improve performance. Basically, wax is optional--it isn't required for traction during the kick. Feb 1, 2014

A shopper asked: do you offer the binding that is recommended with this ski? Feb 1, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Benjam: I purchased these skis a few weeks back. They did not have the bindings in stock at time, I had to purchase at a different online retailer. You need to know the type of boot you have. Is it "NNN", which is probably most common? Is the boot a "backcountry" or is it "touring"--there are different NNN bindings for each. Solomon boots require NSS bindings. This ski has a NIS binding plate. If your boot is NNN touring, I recommend you look for a Rossignol or Rottafella brand "NIS NNN AUTO T4 Touring" binding. You can install them at home by just slipping them onto the NIS plate. The slide mechanism can be tight and I recommend you put on a pair of work gloves. Feb 1, 2014

Robert G: yes,the House offers the Roseville NIS binding in several grades. I got the F4 they work great and you just slide them onto the base. Feb 1, 2014
