Description

If all-mountain ability is wrong, why be right?

Don't let conditions or terrain dictate where you can go on your skis—grab the Rossignol Sin 7 Ski and be the master of your own destiny. A 98mm waist width gives you enough to float effortless through powder, especially when combined with the Powder Turn Rocker that is a progressive tip and tail rocker. Not to worry though, the Sin 7 is no one-trick pony either. Camber underfoot lets you easily transition over to harder snow or groomers, without feeling like you've just stepped onto an ice rink with no skates on. The paulownia wood core is extremely light, but certainly doesn't lack for "pop" or playfulness when you're spinning laps through your favorite backcountry playground. In case you're rockin' these early season, or just with low coverage in general, rest easy knowing that the minicap sidewall construction is built with a traditional sidewall for durability, just slimmed down to save some weight.

  • Powder Turn Rocker (50% low camber underfoot, 50% progressive tip and tail rocker)
  • Minicap sandwich laminate
  • Paulownia wood core
  • 98mm waist width
  • Centered sidecut (128/98/118)
  • Flat binding plate

The best all-condition skis, ever.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I live in the midwest, but try to get out to the Rockies and BC a couple times a year. What this means is that I need something that can carve the icey groomers we have in the midwest, but also feel at home when I strike it rich in the powder out west.

I've tried a lot of skis to find something that's perfect, until trying the Sin 7. They are the best all-condition skis I've ever seen.

Between the super light construction at the tip and tail and the aggressive geometry, they turn intuitively. You start thinking about pivoting around that tree or mogul, and they just GO.

In deep powder, another cm of width would be great...but you'd lose the all-mountain, all condition versatility that these have. If I was skiing in the rockies all year, I'd be looking at a wider ski, but that wouldn't be optimal for the midwest. I am amazed to find a ski that, for the first time, doesn't feel like a compromise in either set of conditions. These have been great for my first few ski adventures this year, and I'm in love with them. They are lighter, more responsive, and more compliant than a ski this size has a right to be.

A note on compliance...I don't know how Rossi did it, but these are super compliant on chop, without having the tip and tail flop all over at high speeds. I'm guessing that the weight reduction at tip and tail is a huge contributor, but these are JUST PLAIN GREAT skis. Look at the Rossi FKS bindings for a great product, as well!

Last season at winter park. Liked em so much I bought a new pair after demo'ing.

Unanswered Question

Blizzard Bushwacker vs. Rossignol Sin 7? I'm 5'7", 160 lbs., advanced skier,. Looking for a maneuverable ski that I can also take into the trees if there's ever any more snow in the West! I ski primarily in Mammoth. Thoughts? Recommended length?

Hi, I'm an intermediate skier looking for freeride/all-mountain skis that are fun now and still be good if I improve. From the reviews it seems like the sin 7 may be a good options, any other suggestions? I'm 5.8 and 165 lbs, and not used to ski on very long skis, but the 172s may bee to short? Noticed that people say that the soul 7 rides a bit shorter than the actual length, do you think the same applies to the sin 7? Also wondering about bindings, will the marker griffon 13 work, or are other brands better suited?

Responded on

Hey there,

You are on the right track for skis and run in between lengths on the Sin and probably other skis as well. Your weight says longer and your height suggests shorter. So you have to base your decision on where you ski, how aggressive you approach your days, what type of terrain you prefer(moguls, tight trees, open bowls, deep powder, tight quick turns or medium long turns).

The Sin will ski short in comparison to anything else you have skied on in the past so going long is the way to go. What skis and what length have you been on and enjoyed?

Other skis to look at are Line Sick Day 95, Atomic Vantage Theory, Volkl Bridge, Nordica Nrgy 90 or 100, or for a little stiffer high performing ski the Blizzard Kabookie. Beware of the rocker profiles particularly in the tail if you are wanting to ride switch though.

Marker Griffon is a great way to go, my favorite, but bindings are personal preference and you have to know the brake width when purchasing.

Lot of info to look at but feel free to ask anything.

Hi, I'm currently skiing 178cm Volkl Kendo. East coast, spend a lot of time in the trees, but also time on the groomers, and crud. Advanced/aggressive skier. What's your thoughts on length, 180 or 188?

Responded on

Get the 188's without a doubt...the ski skis short. I demoed it in the spring in crud snow and I'm 5'11 215. Thinking about picking up a pair myself. Cheers mate

Hi - I currently ski on a set of Rossi Avenger 82 - 184cm I think. Great skis, but they have their limitations off the groomers. How do you think the Sin7's would compare? Ideally, I am looking for something that works well in powder and crud, but doesn't entirely lose the ability to carve on the groomed runs. I'm 6' 175lbs - would you go 180cm or 188cm?

Thanks!

Hello,
I am 5'10" and 155lbs. I am 36 and am an advanced to expert skier. I am looking for a single quiver ski that can handle open powder bowls, trees and groomers. (Not sure this even exists by the way.) Any recommendations on the length? I am thinking about the 180 but wondering if I should go up to the 188.
Thanks,
Kevin

Responded on

180cm is my vote based on your size. With you wanting this ski to be a one ski quiver the 180cm will provide a more fun nimble experience day in and day out in a variety of terrain.

If you encounter more soft snow/deep days than you do groomed runs and moguls then going up to the 188cm would also work.

It always helps me offer better recommendations when I know what you are currently skiing on or what this ski will be replacing.

Good luck with your decision and feel free to ask anything else.

I'm 5'8" and weigh 180 lbs. I'm looking for a ski that can do it all. I'm an advanced skier and mainly ski out West in groomed, powder, and backcountry mixed conditions. I usually hit more mixed than powder conditions since I don't live out West and usually only make a couple trips per year. I'm debating between the Rossignol Sin 7 and Soul 7. Any tips for deciding between the two ski models?

This year, Rossignol added the AirTip to the Sin 7, which is an awesome upgrade from previous models. That just means it's lighter and is built retain maximum torsional rigidity.
The Soul 7 also has that AirTip, but it's made with Paulownia Wood which is even lighter.
Looks like they have the same turn radius, although I feel like the Soul is more maneuverable in all conditions.
Rossignol markets the Sin as 70% powder, 30% frontside and for a more average skier... The Soul is marketed as 80% powder, 20% frontside and for a more advanced skier.
Both have the same rocker profile - 50/50 camber vs tip/tail rocker.
Personally, I think it's great that they changed up the Sin 7 this year, such an improvement. But I'd still choose the Soul 7 any day!

PS Rossi recommended ski length for the 7 series matches skier height for advanced skiers (or +5 cm for more aggressive experts).

Thanks Laura! Would you recommend the 180cm ski length for my weight (180 lbs), height (5'8"), and ability (expert/pro)?

I am 6'.5" and weigh 140 lbs(tall and skinny). I am leaning towards being a more advanced skier. I am looking for something that I can use in most conditions and terrain. So I just was wondering if this is the right ski for me.
