Please select a color/size.


  • The new thinner core profile is lighter weight, delivering a softer, more user-friendly flex at the tip and tail.
  • The waxless AR Plus base provides an excellent compromise between kick and glide in all snow conditions
  • Smaller sizing increases maneuverability and control for easier uphills, safer downhills and increased predictability in the flats
  • Built with a sturdy wood air core, the Evo XC 59 is an easy-to-use, durable and lightweight companion for off and on-trail exploring


REI will gladly mount your bindings. An additional fee may apply, so please contact one of our participating REI ski shops for a quote.

Is is true that REI doesn't carry boots compatible with the NIS binding that comes with these skies?

Asked by: Anemone
We very much carry boots that are compatible with these skis. NIS refers to way the bindings integrate to the skis. The bindings are compatible with all NNN boots.

What makes these skis suitable for both groomed and ungroomed terrain? Other models are only good on groomed terrain. I would have thought the answer is that these skis have a partial metal edge but they don't

Asked by: Elaine
This ski is designed for beginning to intermediate cross-country skiers who will be spending most of their time on groomed tracks, but can also negotiate a few light slopes. The ski is a little shorter and is comprised of a lighter weight, wood air core design to better handle this light off-trail skiing.

Would someone 6'1" weighing 210 lbs. be able to wear size 196cm in the Rossignol Evo XC 59 or should they use a different size or model?

Asked by: 4shaw

What is the difference between the Rossignol XC60 and XC59? Other than price? I am a long time downhill skier getting into cross country skiis, so, I would like something more than a beginner ski that I may outgrow in less than a year.

Asked by: Dustin
The 59s have an air wood core and sidewall construction, while the 60s have a wood core and active cap construction.

Are these specific to men or would they work just fine for women? I'm 5'6" and about 140lbs. 

Asked by: Christy Ann
​These skis will work just fine for women. Size 176 is the right size based on your weight.
