Super sendin' sticks.
The endless succession of floppy, boring powder skis is enough to lull you to sleep instead of psych you up for serious shredding, but the lively, strong, and high-powered Rossignol Super 7 Ski is a giant WAKE UP slap right across your dozy mug. The latest offering in the game-changing 7 Series, the Super 7 is back unchanged from last year and ready to lay down huge pow slashes, stomp cliffs, and rally though chunder like it's late for something.
Rossignol's original S7 pioneered the "fun shaped" powder ski and set the standard for friendly powder skis, and while its influence is still there in the Super 7's slight pintail and gently tapered tip, the Super is a different, more aggressive beast than its forebear. The S7's easiness made it feel noodly when you drove it hard, but the Super's light and snappy paulownia wood core is beefed up with diagonal fiberglass laminates, which give it a stiffness and torsional stability that beg to be driven hard, not gently shimmied through mellow trees. Rossignol's Minicap Sandwich construction combines the stiffness and edginess of sidewalls with the smooth-turning and lightweight properties of a cap, so the Super 7 feels like a beefy sidewall ski when you're pushing it through crud and down big lines, but it moves with the agility and ease of a capped board when you're zippering tight tree lines or ripping soft post-storm bumps.
Tip and tail rocker combined with underfoot camber isn't exactly groundbreaking these days, but it doesn't have to be because it works so damn well. Rossignol pressed the Super 7 into a profile it calls Powder Turn rocker, which features a section of reasonably mellow camber underfoot for hardpack performance and pop, along with rockered sections in the tip and tail that let you slash big turns, powerslide when you want to, and generally make short work of deep, soft snow. To fix the tip chatter that plagues many rockered skis, Rossignol incorporated a honeycomb material into the Air Tip to reduce mass and vibration and even included a VAS dampening layer to give the Super 7 a smooth, predictable feel when you're pushing the speed limit.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This ski is a decent all rounder for groomed runs, resort powder, and mixed conditions. The reason why I 2 stared this ski is because i feel that it lacks the float required to ski deeper powder (more then 6 inches), and in variable conditions the skis chatter more then other skis in this category. If your a resort skier looking for a one quiver ski this is a common choice, but if your looking for something with better performance I recommend the DPS Wailer 112, the Moment Governor, or The Black Crowns Nocta .
The sizes we have listed on the site states 136 / 116 / 126 mm, but this measurement is not accurate for the 172cm and the 164 cm ski length. The correct measurement of the 172 length is 140/112/130, referring to the width of the ski. I will be double checking the 164 length measurements and updating them.
The perfect ski...almost

Bought the Super 7s based on everything I read online. It is an awesome ski. I'm 5'10 about 190...and grabbed the 188s. The ski handles great in the powder, soft snow, moguls, groomers, blasts thru the crud, and is a 7/10 on the hard pack. My only complaint is the top sheet. It simply doesn't hold up well. Yeah, it's a complaint about the cosmetics...but I have 10 "moderate" days on these skis...and they look like they went through a season as a demo pair. Again, the ski handles exceptionally great...I'm just disappointed that Rossignol didn't put any thought into protecting the top sheet of the ski to make the normal wear and tear less noticeable.
Rossi Super 7 - 2016
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Just got back from 9 days skiing powder in BC. The Super 7 is light and playful for its width and provides plenty of float, but I found that the tips have a tendency to dive. This ski needs a bit more tip rocker in my opinion.
Can I use the G3 Ion 10 bindings with a 115 brake on Super 7 skis?
Hey Stephen - You can use the G3 Ion Bindings with the 115 mm brake on the Super 7s. You might need to bend the brakes slightly to fit around the waist of the ski but this is not difficult to do. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

Hey Stephen, like Kyle said. I don't bend a brake past 5mm but 1 will be fin. Might not have to bend it at all.
I am 6'2, 185lbs (190 ish with gear), and I was wondering what size of ski to get. I tried the Sin 7s 172cm and they felt fine however my dad (about 6'11 , 170lbs) said he was going to buy the Supers at 180, we are both looking to buy Super 7s, should I be going with a longer ski?
I like to ski in the trees and chase powder, as most people who are buying these skis. Thanks for your help!
It all depends on what you're looking to get out of your skis! Shoot me an email and we can chat about sizing.
Other than the slight cosmetic change, is there any difference between the 2015 and 2016 Super 7?
There were no significant changes made to the Super 7 between last year and this year. Great freeride powder ski. I have these skis so feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

Look at K2 shreditor 112 vs. Rossi Super 7 with alpine bindings. Taking to AK and already have a set of fatties. 5' 11'' 160 lbs. Advance to expert. Any suggestions or other skis even.
Both are awesome skis. The Super 7 is going to be more nimble and easy to turn, while the Shreditor will be more stable at higher speeds. It just depends on what you're looking for in the skis. Contact me directly if you'd like a personalize experience here at Backcountry.
what is the appropriate size for 6'1" agressive skier. 180 or 188? Currently he is skiing on a 181 Surface ski.
Either length would work great. A 180 would be much more nimble through tight chutes and trees whereas a 188 would be much more stable for big mountain lines..
I just bought a pair and want to set them up a BC skis. What skins would you recommend?
I'd recommend some Black Diamond Ascension STS's. 125 or 140 width would work best for you.
