The Bandit 94’s are a refreshing approach to touring skis. Unfortunately too many manufacturers make skis for touring with going uphill in mind when whats is the point of walking all that way if you’re faced with a pretty poor experience even in great snow heading back down- surely it is only for woolly hat wearers or lycra clad randonee athletes who are more bothered about the uphill bit.
So the Bandit 94 address this problem by having a proper ski geometry and width to give you a real carve, good (and safe) levels of grip plus the width to float in deep powder. Strong and light this is a pair of skiers touring skis.
The manufacturer says this about the Rossignol Bandit Respect 94 2008:
Skis built with the B94 structure. Lighter for climbing up but with a special downhill design. Strong and tough. Use these skis with touring bindings.
