Always a crowd favorite, the S7 returns to Rossignol's line. Using a blend of tip and tail rocker and camber underfoot, the S7 is designed to make soft snow skiing easy. It doesn't have any metal in its construction, which makes it light for its size. Camber and sidecut underfoot allow it to work on the hardpack. Intermediates and first time powder skiers might enjoy the S7. More advanced skiers might consider Rossignol's Super 7.

Rossignol S7 (2011)

Think you’re not a very good powder skier? Don’t decide till you try the category-crushing S7. There’s nothing special about the construction: A sheet of Titanal gives it just enough power and dampness; 30-degree sidewalls take a beating. The secret’s in the shape. Traditional camber and sidecut underfoot provide a comfy home base. Tip and tail are rockered and reverse-sidecut. The tip is smeary, floaty, undemanding; the tail sinks readily when you need to dump speed. The S7—No. 1 in six criteria—forgives almost any mistake; and we tested the 195 cm. Ski as aggressively as you dare; it bails you out every time. “The ultimate powder tool,” said Preston.
