RateSkiGear.Com user Paul recently rated the Rossignol S7 BC twin-tip, reverse and conventional camber ski a 98 out of 100!
His likes: “The S7 BC by Rossignol is one of the most innovative and versatile skis on the market. Combining all of the recent developments in ski technology the S7 is a rockered reverse-camber twin-tip fat ski with reverse sidecut on the tips and tails and regular camber and sidecut underfoot. With superb flotation this is the ski you want on your feet on a big powder day in the backcountry. But just because the S7 is a fat powder ski doesn’t mean you can’t hit the groomers at your local resort. The regular camber and sidecut in the waist mean the S7 performs equally well on groomed cruisers.
Okay I’ve skied over two weeks now on the Rossi S7 and I had to come back to re-rate them. The S7 has gained an additional 4 points on the rating (originally 94/100) as I’ve come to ski them under more varied conditions and terrain. They rip in the bumps, and I’m a Mary Jane skier so I know a little bit about moguls. I’m having a blast skiing in the trees with them. I’m an avid tree skier but these skis have given me a whole new level of confidence in the woods. And now that we’re actually getting some snow here I can say that the S7’s rule the gnar! I’m floating over freshly fallen fluff over 18 inches (give or take) of structureless sugar. While my buddies are all crashing and burning into the bottomless I’m floating along laughing. As hard as may be to believe these “fat” skis actually carve, take them out on some groomed pack powder and see. Once you find your “center” on these you’re not going to want to ski on anything else. Featured on the cover of Powder Magazine three times so far this season (you may want two).
Get a pair before they’re all gone”
His dislikes: “As no ski can truly be all things for all conditions the Rossignol S7 is not an ice skate, so if you have to ski ice, then you might want something a little narrower underfoot.
I’ll stick by this dislike. The S7 is not bad on the ice and slick hardpack but it’s no ice skate.”
