There are some additonal pictures in the Aventure Nordique website, for example BC 100:

To me it looks like they have at least a new shape compared to old Rossignol BC skis, added skin slots in the tip, but the Positrack pattern seems unchanged.
I wonder how much rocker (or "nordic rocker") these new skis have?
There is also one smooth base ski with pretty comparable dimensions as Voile Objective or Åsnes Tindan 86.

Seems pretty similar/repackaged to the current Seek 7, which is 122-86-108, this one has the little skin notch in the tip. I've seen the Seek7 in person, it's light, moderately stiff, not enough rocker up front for me, Objective still has more rocker and more even flex underfoot.

Same thing here... Pretty sure it's just a similar copy of the 3yo Seek7 packaged with a different cosmetic for people who only buy stuff under the "Nordic" label... I played with The Seek7 when it first came out too... It was not a bad ski, it was very nice in fact for a chinese ski... but nowhere near the Objective or the Tindan. Plus, the Tindan 86 has even more rocker than the Objective.
And seriously, who in the world would spend their hard-earned money on a company that doesn't even bother to publish the weight of their "LIGHTWEIGHT" skis? That the least a ski maker can do...
But hey, thanks for the info..!

Both the BC100 and the BC80 need to come in longer lengths to accommodate heavier skiers if they are serious about these skis being Nordic touring skis.
Unashamed to be a "cross-country type" and love skiing down-hill.
