Description

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

The, lift-line-envy causing Rossignol Super S7 owes its super hero status to a big-mountain-worthy length and the layer of confidence-inspiring titanal—yes friends, the 188 also got some metal this year. 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.
  • 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%.

Heavy Seven

I'm 6' and 185lbs and have skied on the 195cm Super-7's for 2 years. I ski a couple of different skies every year. This ski is different from most of the others you would compare it to. First of all, it is heavy. And, since I mounted the Dukes on them they are super heavy relative to everything else out there. So...is heavy a bad thing? Well, if you you are in the park, skiing switch, or uptracking, heavy is bad. However, if you are charging steeps, skiing variable conditions fast, ice, crud, chopped pow, and making larger turns, heavy often means more vibration absorption - and that equals smooth ride, greater control, and improved stamina on the decent. Last year I skiied the Armada JJ AK 195's, the Salomon Rocker 2's 192cm, and the Super 7's. I really enjoyed all of these skis. They are all great! But they are all quite different. The Armadas really feel balanced in the air and I love skiing the resort with them because the are so poppy and agile. The Rocker's feel incredibly floaty and are a treat in tight trees and excel if you like to slurf. All three of these skis are amazing in powder. But, the Super 7's matched my skiing style best overall. I am an aggressive, classically trained, skier who seeks out steep lines and skies them fast. I will go out of my way to sherpa my boards up all kinds of terrain. I find the Super 7's to be incredibly stable, and I trust them under foot more than anything I have skiied in the past. They instil confidence with their ability to hold an edge and absorb the terrain. I liken it to riding a downhill bike versus riding a cross country bike on decent. Both bikes are good - but your riding style will determine which bike is most suitable to you. For every individual it will be a little different. I give these skis a 5 star rating.

I am 5'11" around 200 pounds. I am a very strong skier that grew up ski racing. I ski at Mammoth, should I get the 188 or 195??

Responded on

You won't have trouble driving either ski, so it just comes down to whether you want the bigger landing pad or a slightly turnier ski. Check out the Blister review as he discusses the characteristics of each length:

http://blistergearreview.com/gear-reviews/review-2011-2012-rossignol-super-7

He didn't like the ski for a given style of skiing, but it has been one of the more highly praised sticks around for the past couple of years so if you think it's for you, just focus on the differences between the two lengths in that review.

Posted on

I'm a 6' 160 pound woman, I like to haul ass on groomers, but love hiking to the top of anything for some deep pow turns, my local ski shop duderino told me to get the 188s with some marker dukes, but from reading the comments it seems go big or go back and get big after you realize you need it. Should I just go for the 195s? Or listen to el duderino?

Responded on

I'm 6'2" 180 and wont ski anything bigger then 190. its just not necessary. These will float in pow and still maintain a good hold on groomers in the 188. DUDERINO!

eh

I was sort of forced to get these after my Rossi phantom rc112 came apart on me, and at first I have to say I wasn't happy about it. I was told at the time that these would be an adequate replacement because they are much stiffer than the S7, and would be more similar to my past skis. These are stiffer than the S7, but not close to the stiffness of the Phantom RC112 (Rossi: please bring those back to us). With the titanium sheet they put in the middle of this, it makes the ski stiffer in the middle between the early rise in the tip and tail, but the Fiberglass in the tip and tail doesn't keep them stiff enough to help with the tip flopping around at higher speeds reducing the edge contact you have with the snow when the tip bounces around. This is only a problem on firm snow or groomers, not a problem for fresh or slightly tracked powder. Those are the conditions this was built for. The fat tip with the slightly narrower tail gives you a nice tip floaty feeling. Tip stays up, so even at slower speeds in deep snow you feel in control and know that your tip isn't going to take a dive. I wouldn't recommend them if you are looking for a one quiver, but a fun powder ski that has a user friendly shape like the S7, but stiffened up making it more versatile for a more advanced skier. There are many specialized weapons out there designed specifically to be playful, or slay high speed chutes, or drop 100ft off a rock. I would say these skis are not the best choice for any of one of those, but a great choice for a bit of all of them. The jack of all trades that you can take on a heli trip, flip around in the trees, general tom foolery on the mountain putting a smile on your face.

Anyone looking for binding advice I have run them with jesters for about a year and would recommend that if you got them and are looking for a binding. I have used them with the FKS and didn't like it quite as much. The jester has a wider stance which feels a lot better and more controlled for a wider ski, plus it looks better than the FKS once mounted, so extra style points there.

On sizing I am 6' 200lbs and went with the 188. Great size for anyone even slightly close to that. They come up pretty good in the tip and tail so they ski shorter, but a nice playful size in softer snow. I would recommend anyone around my size go with the 195 though. You have much more ski to work with, and it won't feel as long as you expect it to. The 188 is great for more of a playful ski that I can throw around when I know I'm going to get in some tighter spots in the trees which is what I got them specifically for. For a more big mountain bomber, or open bowl cruiser go with the 195.

Re: Jester bindings. What about the brakes? Jesters come with 110, right? Super7 is 117. Did that work out OK? Did you have to bend the brakes? Did you buy bigger brakes to put on? Please do tell.

Responded on

Oh, yeah, and I'm thinking of getting the Jester Schizo. Do you know if that makes any difference?

Responded on

The Schizo is just a different colorway I think, not sure they added any metal to it, but if they did it wouldn't be a huge difference in performance. They have the stance adjuster on the Schizo which will give you more customization, but performance will be the same. The Schizo comes with a 90 or 110 brake, the regular jester has an option for a 130 which is what I've got on there.

just bought some super 7's was wondering what binding to mount. any suggestions?

Responded on

Marker Jester or Jester Pro, the wide chasis is great on these skis. The Rossi binding actually looks goofily narrow. The Marker is bomber, and the green in either the Jester or Jester Pro would look good on this ski.

Responded on

Rossi Pivot and PX work well. From experience I would say to stay away from Tyrolia/Head/Fischer Peak 18x and similar because they are too sloppy in roll to drive fatter skis well. Haven't used the Jesters.

Super Dope

These things mean business. Not as playful as some of the other options. The day I bought a pair I had also demoed the K2 Obsethed and the Line Opus. Although the Obsethed and the Opus aren't quite in the same family as the Super 7, I wanted to get a feel for something else. Ultimately, I decided to go with the Super 7 because of it's stability ANYWHERE on the mountain. I was that idiot that was riding a powder ski on man-made snow/ice, but I was probably having way more fun than everyone else.

Bottom Line: You're always going to feel a great sense of control and stability with this ski whether your coming in for a landing off a 20ft drop, bombing your favorite Blue or Double Blue, plowing through crud, floating on the surface of fresh pow, or making controlled turns down a slope that resembles an ice rink. However, this ski does not provide that nice playful, spinny, and poppy feel that you get with a skis like the Opus and Obsethed.

Best Skis Ever

I grew up skiing everyday from the time I was 5 years old, living 5 minutes from the lift made this possible. From the second I put the Super 7's on I noticed an improvement in my skiing ability for the first time since I was a teenager. I am now 30years old. If you want something you can ski on in any condition these are the skis for you. They are stiff enough, in the 195cm version, for hard groomer days or icy crud but they are unbelievably good in the deep powder. Great ski well done Rossi!

How do the Super 7s compare to the Icelantic Keepers? Looking for a ski that is able to perform well in chopped powder/crud.

Responded on

I think you'll find the S7's a bit stiffer. This year's version features some metal sheets (Titanium I think?) in their construction while the keepers, as far as I know, do not. I think the S7's also have more rocker.

Responded on

I hand flexed them both and the Keeper is definitely much stiffer. Bentgate agrees.

I wanted to demo them both but could never make it happen. I just bought the Keeper instead but don't have any days on it yet to comment.

What I have picked up is that the Super7 doesn't perform all that well in the chowder though it is damper because of the metal topsheets. Hope that helps.

Responded on

Last year, I demo'd a pair of S7's and liked them, but then after some research that night, decided to buy a pair of Keepers the next day (with no demo) after narrowing my choices down to the Super 7 or Keeper. I was especially not happy with how Keepers handled in chop - they bounced around with inconsistent control and were more difficult to initiate a turn. Ended up returning them (losing $150 in doing so, because they were now mounted) and buying the 2012 Super 7's 188. Skiied my Super 7's for 7 days at the end of last year and absolutely love them. I am an advanced/expert 6'4, heavier body size, and ski with more power than finesse, if that helps.

HI, I'm 6', 190lbs expert skier. What length should i be going for? Ski mainly in French Alps, off-piste but on groomers when needs must! Also, is there a compatible touring binding? and how does this compare with the BBR?

Responded on

I have skied this is a 195 for the past couple seasons and I am 6'1", 180. That size has worked fine in a variety of conditions in Utah, I suspect you'd find the same in the Alps. I would not consider the 188 when I bought mine because it had no metal, but that is no longer the case, so the choice becomes slightly harder. Will you be focusing on big lines, or more technical descents? That last consideration will tip the balance in your ultimate choice. In the end, sounds like 195 though.

Responded on

I am 6'2 and 195. I love the 195s. You will be happy you had the extra length in the powder, still very easy to control in trees as well. On hard pack they ski very short due to the rockered tip and tail. Great Ski!

Posted on

I am 6'4" and 190 skiing the Fischer AMC 79 for a few years. I would like something that holds a line but is fun in fresh snow found in trees and bowls. Is the 195 nimbal enough to keep my smiling when heading into the trees?

Responded on

This is a quick ski due to the rocker design, and I have skied the Super S7 for the last 2 seasons in a 195 and have skied plenty of tight trees, I am 6'1" 180. However, now that the 188 is available with a metal layer that might give you a little more leeway, while still being a stout ride. i don't think you can go too wrong in either size, but at 6'4" you might lean to the 195.
