Description

Quit stalling and send it!

Brraaapp, is the sound you make straightlining a chute or firing down a wide open pow field when you click into a pair of the Rossignol 2011/12 S7 Skis. These versatile babies live for knee-deep powder, but can hammer everything from techy steep lines and open pow fields to freshly groomed trails, thanks to a centered sidecut, monster spoon tip, and rockered tip and tail. The S7's traditional camber and deep radius underfoot, as well as a pin-shaped tail, allow you to easily steer through sketchy terrain. Its wood core and laminates keeps you stable at high speeds, so you don't loose your shit and ragdoll down the mountain.

Are there more of this model year coming into stock?

Responded on

It doesn't look like we should be getting any more of the 2011 S7s in, but do check our outlet site departmentofgoods.com for them, it is quite possible for them to become available there. The 2011 Super 7 is on there now.

I'm looking at either the Rossi S7 or the Line Sir Francis Bacon, anyone out there have any thoughts on the two? I ski mainly in CA at Mammoth and one or two trips a year to Utah. I'm advanced/expert skier and i like to ski mainly pow and in the trees.

I weigh 170 ,height 5'10". Expert. I'm looking at these Rossi's. Currently ski Steven's Pass WA mostly. Bad visibility and heavy snow, hard to anticipate. It's very difficult to stay in the sweet spot with my 172cm x-wing Furys. Also tiring on the shins. Question is: will these 188's be just too long? other suggestions? Greg H

Responded on

Sorry for the late response, but the rocker in these skis makes them ski a fair bit shorter than their actual length. I ski them currently, and I'm 5' 10', 155 lbs and they ski awesome, I definitely wouldn't want a shorter length, they're stable and can cruise over anything at that length while still being easily controllable.

I have only skied in summer conditions with my new S7, and I love them! Can't wait for powder!

Wow. A Gift From The Ski Gods!

I love these skis! I just got them a few months ago, in the late spring. They are amazzzzazing! The shred the slush and carve respectively. Great in the trees and with quick turns. My s7 even do alright in the ice and hardpack! I can't wait till the powder starts to fall next winter!

I think I will use these every day next year! My 168 cm have a 105 mm underfoot, which is thinner than the 188's 115 underfoot. That just makes them that much more versatile.

I'm 5'6 and about 105 pounds. The 168 cm are perfect for me, with a little room to grow. The flex is fiarly soft, so they will work extremely well for lighter skiers.

So far, my s7 seem really durable, even the top sheets. The construction is solid and neat.

Once again: kills the crud, owns the slush, slays the powder and does everything you need to do on the groomers.

My Dad Loves These

Got these for my Dad for Christmas he's been super pumped on them.

This is a weird question! I'm 5'10, 150 lbs., adv to expert skier and live to ski powder at the Bird. I only have one lung and ski w 15 lb. pack which hold an oxygen tank. What length of S7's do I need and any mounting tips?

Responded on

Hi Teri,
I can tell you this much, I demoed the 188. They skied very short which was nice. I believed they were mounted traditional or just a bit ahead of traditional which worked great. I am 205lbs and 5'8", and advanced I guess.

Responded on

If the oxygen tank means that you tire easily, go with the 178cm for easiest skiing and completely adequate float and speed in powder. I ski the 178cm mounted at the back line, 140lbs

Responded on

Don't forget about the rocker, that takes some of the length out. My 168 ski almost like 164's.

HOLY $HIT !!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These are the first POW ski's I've ever ridden (Demo at crystal yesterday) and I was just screaming with joy even turn in powder. Now I had the 188's and I felt that they didnt do that well when it came to turns in trees and moguls....BUT the pow performance out weighted all the bad stuff. I was leaning forward in 1ft of fresh !

Awesome Ski

Thirty years of powder and I've found Nirvana. Just had three unbelieveably great days of knee to waste deep powder at Kirkwood and these puppies were nothing short of awesome in varying deep snow conditions. A super slick fall-line ski that floated just as well in the sun baked set up as the first run light stuff. These skis turned so fast and with so little effort in really deep snow that I was able to venture with speed and abandon into far narrower tree lines than I've ever dared before to stay in un-tracked powder all day long. Best of all - the transitions from un-tracked into skier tracked steeps were effortless. I cannot recommend this ski more highly. Pure fun!

loved them

i know these have gotten mixed reviews but i just tried them in a foot of fresh in Breck and i loved them. They are the fattest skis i've been on but they are not difficult to swing around by any means. I skied the 178's and they skied more like 170s given the rocker. Took them on cruisers, steeps, and trees and was very satisfied. I usually ski the s86's as i live in the east but i really did love the s7's in the powder.

S7 Great On Lone Peak

I bought a pair of these to celebrate my release to skiing after spinal fusion surgery. What a great gift. I ski the tram and trees at Big Sky and in the deep powder these puppies float and turn on a dime. What a blast. Ripping the glades is easy and can be done with confidence due to the quick responsiveness of this design. The camber under foot permits a hard edge despite the wide platform. Bottom line -- I love these skis and strongly recommend them.

rossignol s7 er volkl chopsticks?!? i cant decide

Responded on

I don't really know why you'd compare the two. The S7 is more of an everyday ski at 115 underfoot, while the Chopsticks are more of a powder and big line ski with 128 underfoot. Unless you live in dream land of pow everday or already have an all mountain ski, go with the S7.

Posted on

I love to ski at high speed all out on the groomers then trees or on powder days off the trail . I'm 5'10 weigh 190 and 50 years old will the s7 hold its edge at high speed and what size should I ski it

Responded on

S7 has a full wood core and it's a little wobbly and soft at high speeds, great ski for powder, you should look at super 7 which is basically S7 plus a sheet of metal (titanal) and that makes it stiffer for those super high speed runs..
if ur getting the s7 I think the 178's would be a safe choice

Responded on

I'm late to the party in terms of answering your question, but in case you're still on the fence...I'm 5'10, 160#, age 49 and I'm skiing the 188s (Alta - steep/deep, trees, cut up stuff) and love them. I avoid the groomers when possible - that's not what these skis are for - but when I'm on them, I've noticed that these skis can run away from me if I'm not paying attention.

Posted on

which of the three mounting spots should i use for POWDDA on the S7 ??

Responded on

The most technical bulletin from Rossi that I have seen says -2 for powder, 0 for Freeride (which would mean you're gonna ski switch. I mounted -2, and ski POWDDA and they ski great.

no need for new skis - the S7 rips

I got a pair of S7s when they first came out. I think that Rossignol has (wisely) kept the shape the same. I used to get a new pair of skis every year but I don't see anything better out there. These skis are SO much fun on a powder day. They have the perfect amount of rocker and the wide tip floats nicely. I love to just point 'em and open it up. Oh yea, and despite the shape, believe it or not they actually ski reasonably well on groomers (but who needs groomers!).

Where do you recommend mounting Hammerhead bindings on these skis? I make mostly alpine style turns, and the Rossi rep doesn't really want to weigh in on this question. Thanks.

Responded on

My girl and I both ski the hammerhead on S7s. We have them mounted boot center (0) and they are great all over the mountain.Just make sure to pull a tape on them to confirm that the top sheets are right.

I'm not sure if I need 178 or 188
I'm 183cm / 86kg or 6'/ 190lb, 45yrs old, ski some back country as well as alpine inbounds
not into big mountain stuff or going to AK, i dont spin or go upside down either
just want a floaty powder ski for chutes, bowls and trees
My resort / back country skis are 174 B3s / 178 Sickbirds
I know the rocker takes some edge away but not keen on a big ski if I dont need it

Any advice about choosing length?

Responded on

Come on, ya gotta go to AK! I have the 195 Suoer S7 and while it is a lot of ski, it skis much shorter than that. The consensus is this ski will ski short. A 5'7" ski buddy has the 177 and frequently laments not having the 188. Your height and weight would seem to dictate a 188. What throws me off is the 174 B3s.....I heli skied in Revelstoke last year with a bunch of strong skiers, and they all started short and moved up in length. So, particularly if you are going for this version, without the extra metal - lean towards 188. Good luck, it is a great ski.

Best Answer Responded on

I'm about your size and loved the 185 sickbirds. Skied them for 5 years. I first demoed the 177 length and didn't like the ski at all, tried the 185's and bought them right away...so would recommend the 188 s7's. Actually just bought a pair and am trying to figure out where to mount hammerhead bindings. Can hardly wait to try them!

Responded on

Thanks for the confirmation Mike on 188, I hear that sentiment on the shorter S7s often.

Responded on

I'm 185cm and I skied the 188cm with no problems . I think they ski shorter with the rocker so 178cm will be way too short. The longer length helped me charge down the mountain with more stability and I could still ski trees and tight chutes with the 188cm

Best Ever...Fabulous Ski

I can't believe that the S7 doesn't have 5 Stars. One person gave them a 1 (totally misleading) and I suspect he is just trying to drag down the rating and promote the other brand of skis he mentioned. Everybody I know that has a pair of these LOVES them. I am an advanced skier and am technically very, very good. Ihave been a ski bum in Vail, skied for many years and have owned countless pairs of skis representing many brands. The Rossignol S7 is the BEST SKI I have ever been on...not even a contest. They light, quick, and effortless and perform well in a much wider range of conditions than claimed. There may be a few people who would like this ski, but I haven't talked to one other person that owns these, as I do, that doesn't think they are anything less than fabulous.

Responded on

Is this the only rockered ski you've been on?
