Blackops Sender Ski

We were first attracted to the Blackops line when Rossignol rolled out their initial freestyle powder jib ski a few years ago. Now with this midseason release, they have expanded the line to accommodate riders with more of a freeride perspective. The Blackops Sender continues the theme of the line by thriving off-piste in either the backcountry or the resort. The paulownia core makes things lightweight enough for a dedicated touring setup, while the damp tech and Diago stringers ensure you can charge through post-storm chop at the resort when things are fast and fun. Meanwhile true to older Blackops skis, a lighter swing weight will have your back when you want to set a three off of a big cliff or whip around a wind lip backflip on your way to the car.

  • Versatile ski that will keep you in control in freeride scenarios
  • Mid-sized waist is quick on edge and easily controlled in deep snow
  • Low camber underfoot adds response, pop, and edge hold all over
  • Rocker in the tip and tail creates pivot control and float in pow
  • Short turn radius adds quick control and powerful edge hold
  • Paulownia wood core is lightweight to boost uphill performance
  • Diago fiber laminate and an extended core keeps things powerful
  • Short air tip lightens swing weight for added control
  • Item #ROSZ70N

Demo’d for a week in Vail, quite variable conditions from death chunder to knee-high floaty pow to watery mashed potatoes to groomers. Amazing adaptability to any terrain. I could get hard on the edges on the groomers, yet still stay on top of the powder. Bumps were easy enough as there was enough pop in the skis to get me around quickly, same for tree runs. Very impressed, going to pick up some off season if that’s possible.
