Rossignol Super 7
Here's what other sites are saying:
If the thought of groomers puts you in a deep sleep, the powder-slashing Rossignol Super 7 Ski will slap you into frenetic euphoria. This off-piste powerhouse features a stable 116-millimeter waist for stomping airs and floating through blower. Its Powder Turn rocker is aptly named, with a long-rockered honeycombed Air Tip and tapered, rockered tail for power steering. The long-radius sidecut shortens directly underfoot for an all-terrain versatility and liveliness. Take this big stick into the backcountry to access pristine stashes, because the ultralight wood core will never be a burden. Rossignol's 7-Series freeride line, this year's evolution of its popular S-Series, offers an innovative new fusion of backcountry and all-mountain performance. The Super 7 is the middle child of the new Air Tip skis, with a waist width and turning radius squarely between the big-mountain Squad 7 and the ultra-versatile Soul 7.
With 2 layers of titanal for superior pop & power, the wider SUPER 7s from Rossignol keep you surfing through the deep and charging the steep with equal prowess. A Spoon tip and Powder Turn Rocker balance weight, edge control and float to make these skis the perfect tool for big lines and big dumps.

The future of freeride is here. The award-winning, new SUPER 7 is a revolutionary, lightweight fusion of backcountry, freestyle, and freeride performance for expert to intermediate skiers. Called "the most versatile powder ski ever tested", the 2014 Gear of the Year winner delivers powder skiing's surfy playfulness to the masses. Featuring athlete-driven innovation, our highly-acclaimed Powder Turn Rocker profile virtually eliminates "tip flap" for increased stability while delivering effortless floatation, steering, and speed control in the deepest snow conditions. Our patented, lightweight Air Tip technology enhances floatation and control even further, keeping tips naturally above the snow surface for fatigue-free maneuverability and ultra-light swing weight for quick directional changes. With an ultra-lightweight paulownia wood core construction, 116mm waist, and quick and nimble turn radius, the Super 7 is the next progression of the "game changing" original, making powder skiing easier, more natural and more fun.
The evolution of the game changing S7, the Super 7 perfectly balances on and off piste performance. Want to slash pillows and stomp big airs into bottomless pow? The Super 7 has the rocker and width to do it. Need a ski to take you from pow to crud to pow again? The Soul 7 s five dimension shape can handle it all. Need powerful edge hold to ski the icy top of your favorite chute or to get back to the lift? The Super 7 s short under-foot turn radius and sidewall construction will give you the grip you need to ski with confidence. The Super 7 may be the perfect do it all ski for those seeking softer snow. Specs: Dimensions: Tip-140mm, Waist-116mm, Tail-130mm.
