The Sickle feels right at home from big hits in the park to natural mountain features.
When Mother Nature takes a big ol' dump on the mountain, you and your Rossignol Sickle Ski head from the terrain park right over to the sweet, sweet pillow line you've been eyeing all season long from the chair. Thanks to the Sickle's Spin Turn Rocker profile (aka full rocker), you're able to effortlessly send it down pow fields and treat every powdery drop, step-up, and cat track as your next chance to add an unnatural spin to natural terrain.
- Spin Turn Rocker features a full rocker profile with no camber underfoot (aka banana rocker)
- Full rocker makes the Sickle more playful and maneuverable, and provides more float than any other rocker profile
- Unique profile also increases ease of maneuverability on groomed snow, in parks, and on pow
- Jib Tip consists of a rounder tip profile that's designed for pipe and park transitions and skiing switch
- Wood core creates an extremely responsive, stable, lively, and durable ski that you can count on for performance and longevity
- Mini Cap Sandwich construction incorporates a wood core, 30-degree sidewalls, fiberglass, and high-tech laminates
- Mini Cap strengthens the top of the ski, which increases durability
- 30-degree inclined sidewalls improve swing weight and reduce ski's overall weight, which enhances edging and durability
- Extended Sidecut means that, as speeds and edge angles increase, more sidecut is engaged for powerful full-length edge grip, while at lower speeds and edge angles, sidecut is less engaged for more maneuverability and ease
- 111mm waist furnishes a versatile jib ski that offers playful smearing, ample floatation in pow, and full-throttle boost in the park

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Its a nice big ski. I started this season with a complete new set up (skis, bindings, boots) so it took me a while to figure out what each was doing. It took me 6-8 days to get comfortable on such a fat ski, but once I got used to it it was fantastic. It handles powder like a champ, stomps landings in the bc and in the park. I have some trouble on rollers and moguls with them but thats just because of how big they are (181). Overall a great ski that I will consider buying again in 4-5 years.
Great balance, can handle the steep and deep, but still rip on the groomers back to the lift. Fully rockered profile is easy to whip around, even in tight spaces.
True One Ski Quiver
I love this ski. Floats good in the pow, makes easy turns, lots of pop for park/jibbing, holds a great edge on hardpack, stomps cliffs with ease. What more could you ask for in a ski! I have only 2 complaints, first i wish there was a longer size and second the top sheets chip and delaminate pretty easily. But dont think twice about this one.
Don't Sleep On This One...
as it is probably one of the more underrated skis out there. The Rossignol Sickle Ski, which is based very closely off of the older school S6, is a versatile machine where each turn has good energy without feeling too hard or easy. The rocker shape does get really good float for how well the ski can crave it out and even the swing weight is pretty low so that the more complicated tricks don't feel like a chore to pull off.
Make sure you have enough mountain and snow to work with for them and that you aren't in the pipe 100% of the time and you won't regret going on these.
