The side cut is another feature that provides ample assistance when learning to turn. The side cut is the extent to which the ski’s waist is narrower than the ends. This parabolic shape effects the turning radius. A deeper side cut means a smaller turning radius, which translates to giving the skier the ability to turn more easily and control their speed. This deep side cut is standard on beginner skis; however, the P100 comes with an oversized side cut. The tail on the Rossignol P100 is flat which takes home the trophy for providing stability. This type of tail gives you phenomenal grip and control.
