Description

Good bye wheelie-prone shortness, hello tram line porn.

The limited-release, extremely coveted Rossignol Super S7 owes its super hero status to a big-mountain-worthy 195-centimeter length and the layer of confidence-inspiring titanal that Rossignol added to its wood core. Kryptonite, sun crust, mank, crud, and ridiculous deeps ain’t got a thing on the Super S7. This high-octane beast slashes spines and surfs the deeps with the help of a rockered tip and tail, but the traditional camber underfoot offers stability and carve-ability when you hit the cat track on the way down to the lift lines. The Super S7’s titinal reinforcement and extra length put to rest any complaints the community had about the standard S7—but Lord knows there was little complaining going on last year.
  • Amptek rocker shape floats in the deeps but still carves hard.
  • Titanal reinforcement increases stability and control.
  • WRS fiberglass wrap adds tip and tail strength without increasing swing weight.
  • 195-Centimeter length increases overall radness by at least 80%.

Solid big mountain ski, but not the stiffest

At 195, these are good big mountain skis - stable at any speed (they like to go fast), and don't flop around too much. They aren't the greatest on groomers (obviously not what they're meant for...) You can skid your way down the groomers, but don't expect much in the way of carving back to the lodge. I had to knock a star because they really didn't seem all that stiff. I'm used to skiing on the Phantom series (SC97 and RC112), and those skis are much stiffer and strike me as more hard-chargers than this ski.

The Super S7 is a good big mountain ski - the rocker keeps it playful enough for the trees and tighter lines (even at 195), and it is stable at speed. If you're looking for something with a little bit of flex that you can take anywhere off the groomers, I would say these are a great ski, but if you're looking for a stiff hard-charging ski, you might want to consider other options.

I just bought a pair and am looking at binding. How do the touring bindings affect performance on groomers, bumps, etc..? I am 6'2 195 so it looks like my 2nd question is answered. I am mounting them center.

Ok, how to mount them? Rossi rep say -4, local shop says center and many of you bloggers are going+! Mainly skiing steeps, pow and trees. 195cm. Expert skier, 6ft 200lbs

Responded on

Hey there,

-4 is huge! only do that if you are going to be in some deep and I mean, DEEP powder. -1 should be perfect.

Responded on

I'm 6'2", 200 lbs. Shop in Whistler is mounting mine right now. They are saying that if guys intend to tour quite a bit on them, they're going minus 1. Anyone else is either centered or even going +1 if they don't intend to tour at all. I did center--- I will tour a fair bit on these but not enough to feel like I want to be any further back than centered. The pair I borrowed yesterday were center, and they were great in everything from deep pow, to hard bumps, to groomer, to hanging on my pack hiking. ;-)

Posted on

I have not been able to demo these, so am looking for an opinion about length. I am an advanced skier that is returning to the sport and am learning to ski poowder and trees. I am 6' 2" and a solid 230 pounds. My daily drivers are 184cm Sultan 85s. I have been advised that the 195s would be the correct length due to my height and weight. What are your thoughts?

Responded on

I would think twice before going with the 195. This model has extra metal and is stiffer, the 188 should be avail for demo if you live anywhere in the West. You could also play with mounting points on a demo, ski it centered then try 1cm back to account for your size. Definitly a fun ride though!

Responded on

I ended up going with the 195's. I will post my review the end of December. Thanks for the input.

Mounting Question: hey friends, I realize...

Posted on

Mounting Question: hey friends, I realize this is a totally subjective question, but does anyone have some good advice for a mounting point on the Super 7? Preferably, from actually "skiing" on it? I am mounting an FKS 180 with a 301mm BSL. I have a dedicated, true "deep powder" set-up and some JJ's I currently love (just wish they were bigger); so looking for these to be my "few inches to a lot of new snow", day-old crud/mank, cliff-dropping, big all mountain boards to just have fun on. Probably won't be riding much switch on them and want playful, just not too progressive--I need them to charge when I need to. I was thinking maybe +1, or +2 max.? I hate re-mounting because I didn't do my homework, so any thoughts, or suggestions, things I didn't think about are greatly appreciated. Thanks to everyone in advance for your help.

Responded on

The Rossi technical bulletin on these skis, from last season at least, indicated -2 cm for powder, but I mounted them dead center and they skied great at that point. That is considered the "free ride" mounting point, which it sounds like fits your bill. FYI, I ski Snowbird and Alta on thesenskis if this helps. I expect the gear heads at BC, or your local shop would have this years technical bulletin, although I doubt it has changed since the ski has not.

Posted on

I am considering buying a pair of these. I wondered how it will be to ski big lines with these, is the radius to short? is it stabil enough?

Responded on

Kinda depends, how much do you weigh and how tall are you? My buddy is a 6'1" 185 lbs and says these are bomber, they def. be more stable than the S7 due to the increased metal through out. Still, they might seem like they want to engage, they have a very low turn radius. What kind of ski were you on before this?

Responded on

If you have the skill and physical presence, these skis can do many different turn styles very well. If you are all about "big lines" than perhaps the Phantom Pro rc 112 or its predecessor the Phantom 108 would better suite you. But if you are under 200 lbs you shouldnt be questioning the stability of a 195 cm ski.

TORTURE!

got mine from a local rossi rep a few days ago along with my pass to sugar bowl, one of the deepest POW places in america, right on Donner Summit, now i play the waiting game. already took some pics of them compared to my scratch bc's, they make the scratch's look like the old salomon 1080's!!! they are SOOO BIG!!! I got a demo binding so i can effectively move from -1 up to +3 without any problems, so mounting them was easy as i can move the mount myself anytime. it will take at least a week of testing to get what i want for the given conditions. more tip, less tip, ill have to figure it out and get back to y'all. As for the 195 over the 188, that was a no brainer, as it has metal in it and is way more stable, well i looove to go go FAST, ive gone 75 on my scratch's and wished i wasnt getting shaky underfoot. I proved it with 2 different GPS devices and they poth pinned at 74.4mph. I think i can easily break 85 with these. 195 isnt much bigger, and for me, 6'2" 190 pounds, you also have to weigh yourself with all your stuff on. im easily over 200 pounds with all my equipment on, so the 195 will be fine. I always wished my scratch's were bigger than 185. since i mounted my scratch's to modern, they have been demoted to my park skis, and the new super 7's are now my full time ski. another thing i noticed immediately, even with demo bindings, they are not that heavy! dont be afraid of the weight. rossignol are masters of creating kick ass mountain stompers at super light weights. my atomic m2trons at 170 are STILL HEAVIER than these new babies! i use those when i am doing a ski lesson, as it is harder to teach a carve at 22meters compared to 14 meters, but still, a 195, 117mm underfoot POW ski that still has a sub 23 meter radius? its like 4 skis in one! My other pair of atomic big daddies just got replaced, BIG TIME, those are much heavier and have a 39 meter turn, basically its old school, lift inside foot, turn, no carvability. The Rossi seems to have made a 4 in 1 ski. outwards like a pow ski, inwards like a carver, then rockered for pow, and camber for pop, how can you beat that??? I will definitely update this as soon as i actually ski them, but for now i say get them before they sell out! they will!

TORTURE!

Another S7 vs Super7 question:

Posted on

Another S7 vs Super7 question:

I am 6'1" 165 lbs, and consider myself an expert (in-bounds) skier. I live in the east, but usually get in ~10 days a year out west. For the past 4 years or so I've been riding a pair of K2 all mountain twins in a 170-ish length (admittedly too short), and have been demoing the last 2 seasons to figure out what to invest in to satisfy my craving for pow. Last year in Utah I demoed a pair of 188 S7's in a fresh 2 feet and fell in love with them. I'm almost certainly getting a pair I just can't decide if I want the extra length/weight of the Supers.

I definitely like to charge as well as hit small to medium size cliffs, however, I find that unless I get hit with a blower storm during my few weeks out west I spend a decent amount of time hunting for stashes, and that means playing in the trees (in the east as well). I'm just a little worried about the extra length and more importantly the addl swing weight of the Supers in the trees.

Thoughts appreciated!

Responded on

I'd vote 188. It will be long, enough for powder, but still playful enough for trees. If you skiied the 188's in powder and they worked, then go for them. The 195's will only add a little bit to your powder, but may take away from the swing weight.

Posted on

I am 6ft 4 and about 220lbs, doing a season in Whistler and wondered if anyone knows a place to buy a pair. The skis seem perfect for me as I'm doing mid sized drops and i like to charge but I'm fearing that they will be in limited numbers as anyone over 5,9 seems to want the Supers at 195cm. Is all hope lost?, will there be any to buy if I'm leaving it till early Dec?

Any info on places to buy or alternatives would be greatly appreciated.

Responded on

Get them now to avoid them selling out. If you want to buy online backcountry or evo has 'em, if not you should be able to find a pair at your local REI or any other ski shop around were ever you live

Hey Rob--- Dunno if you already found the skis, but Sport Excess in the village has two pairs right now I believe. I was just in. I'm going to get one of them, though! Lotta snow this week, eh?

Posted on

Like lots of folks, I'm debating the 188 vs. the 195 Super 7. I'm 5'9" and 210lbs, expert skier, only hit smallish drops and I'm looking for this ski to be my daily driver here in the mountains of BC. I'm coming from a pretty old set of 175(ish) Rossi Scratch BCs (which is a ski I've loved for the most part but doesn't have nearly enough float for big days). What do you think -- with my weight am I going to be happy on the 195 or should I go with the 188?

Responded on

188 for sho. I def wouldn't feel comfortable jumping 20 cm's on a ski that's huge in every other dimension possible. You'll get enough float in the huge shovel and a pretty wide underfoot. 188 might feel a little less shocking to your skiing system.

Posted on

I am seriously considering the S7 but can't decide if I should step up to the Super S7. I am an expert skier but not necessarily a super hard charger. I'm 6'2" and about 170lbs. Local mtn, Bachelor, gets all kinds of conditions from ice to powder to crazy chicken heads. Is there a big difference tween the 188s7 and the 195 super? Have been skiing K2 Apache Chiefs for the most part last couple of years.

Best Answer Responded on

The 195 is going to heavier and have a higher turn radius than the 188. The metal they have added in the ski is what makes up the big difference in weight between the 188 and 195. It's about 3.5 pounds. Makes the ski more stable, pushes the turn radius up, and isn't a big deal if you not doing something like touring on these skis.

Your A-Chiefs prob. had a similar turn radius to the 195's if not higher. The 173 A-C's were a 23m turn radius ski, so if you were on something higher, you will actually feel like the 195 S7 is more playful, or more hookie.

Not knowing the length you were on, id say at 6'2" 170 and the ski you were on you could go either 188 or 195. But i might lean toward the 195 for you, the 188 has a VERY LOW turn radius of 17.5m, so unless you like eruo trash turns (like me) than that (188) might feel like a ski that just wants to go sideways on you. So i'd say 195, it will ski damper, deal with varied conditions better cus of the weight, and won't nose dive like your A-C's prob. did on those reallllly deep days!

Hope that helps, it's a long answer, but it's a lot of cash to drop down.

Responded on

It really is personal preference and riding style. With the rocker in these skis it isn't necessary (in most applications) to mount your bindings back any. I'd say go center mount for most and if its really steep and deep, go -2 at best.

Me: 5'8" dude weighing in at 140lbs. Snowbird pass holder/employee.

I put mine +1 from the old school freeride line since I'm not all that big and I wanted to stay well ahead of the tail rocker. I love to ski switch - but NOT on the Super 7. This is a Go Forward, Go Fast ski for sure.

Great that your still skiing at that age. If you're 5'6-5'10" get the s7's if you're 5'11+ get the super s7 depending on how bad your knees are you might want to go with the s7 just because turning will be easier for you and your knees

Has anyone used either the super-7 or regular S7 for a touring ski? Too much rocker? Heavy? I haven't found much info on this matter.Help!! I'm 6'4'' 200lbs.

Responded on

I have been touring on them exclusively for two years in the wasatch. I am a lifelong backcountry skier and don't have any trouble even on 2-3 hour approaches. I did an 8 day hut trip in canada with temps in the minus 20 range and new snow and had no problems. I do run Dynafit ft-12's to save weight which may work for you. I am 6 feet even and 170 lbs.

Responded on

I use my 188 S7's for slackcountry day tours (w/ free pivot tele-bindings), and it's noticably heavier than my touring setup. Usually I pace my touring buddies, but when I have the S7's, I'm in the rear playing catch-up... but it's all worth it on the downhill.

Responded on

I used the S7 last season set up with the Marker Duke Bindings. I am 6'0" 195 lbs. With your height & weight you do not want to be using the regular S7. The ski is actually a centimeter shorter then the 2008 K2 obsethed 189 ski. Rossignol and K2 measure the lenghts different.

The ski tours well, although the set up is heavy I had no problems doing 45 to 90 min tours. (Mt Baker Backcountry Washington). Plus your going to want the longer length for going down, the entire reason your touring to get to the good snow.

I put some dukes on Super 7's and used them for tourning off my sled. Key word: sled. There is no way I would ever use this settup from valley bottom or on a big traverse. The skis sink in quite a bit because of the reverse camber and I felt like a lot of energy while breaking trail vs a traditional ski like a BSquad. However, if you hammer in a track and are prepared to do laps, the settup is great.

Best Answer Responded on

I personally don't like touring with a rocker on the tail of a ski (currently run Armada JJ w/ Baron - upgrading from that this year). You need some tail to help grab snow when skinning. If the skin track gets steep or icy at all, I'm suddenly on a treadmill watching my friends get smaller and smaller in the distance. My two cents.

how much stiffer/more stable is the super s7 compared to the regular s7?

Responded on

The super s7 has a layer of titanal in the core which the regular s7 does not. This allows the ski to be more playful. Its poppier and stiffer that the regular s7. The super s7 is for the guy who is looking for a hard charging ski in the deeps, and steeps. Someone who is going to go hard every run, stomp big cliffs, and just be a all around hard charger. This ski excels in the big lines on the alaska spines. And in wide open bowls.

I'd really appreciate experts advice.

Its all a matter of opinion. I personally liked the S7 a lot. However, that does not mean that you will like them more.

Responded on

I definitely wouldn't recommend the Super S7 unless you're over 200lbs and 6'3" and ski hard. The Gotama is very different from the S7 in a lot of respects, and to best determine the ski for you, you should really demo them. Your question is way too vague to give a simple answer. Unless we know your dimensions, style, geography, and ability, no one can tell what to recommend.

Responded on

They both ski completely different. Please elaborate on your skiing style/ability
