2009 Rossignol S4 Squindo Ski

Posted

Pros: Light, good edge grip for twin, fun

Cons: Not made for boilerplate

I always keep a pair of twin-tips around to play with when we haven't had any snow for a while. I use them mainly in the moguls.  My twins need to handle a light amount of crud, slush, powder, etc. but I'm not concerned about their deep snow performance.  Of all the twins I've owned I've enjoyed these the most.

 

One reason I like these is they have fairly decent dampening for a park ski.  I often end up in areas with frozen slush and chicken heads.  Most twins I've owned get outright scary in those conditions. These skis do pretty well.

 

In moguls these skis shine.  They are light, carve well and are easy to quickly set an edge with.  They have a little pop which is ideal.  They do a good job plowing through the crud piles that accumulate on the tops of moguls around here.  Their dimensions are ideal for me as I can ski moguls on them using either a zipper line technique or by carving turns on the side of the mogul.

 

I put the value rating at 4 because their retail is much higher than normal park skis with a waist in the mid-80s but you can find them online for under $300 which makes them a 5 star value.

Pros: Lightweight

Cons: Minor surface peeling

Fun all mountain, jump ski.  I got a shorter length (160 cm)  just to play around with and have some fun.  Good response in the trees, and nice pop when pulling tricks.  Ultra lightweight ski and made better when paired with the Salomon Ti 12 bindings.  Nice ski to carry when hiking off piste. 

 

I also get some good feedback for the cool graphic topsheet. 

2009 Rossignol S4 Squindo Ski
Description:

If you pause the Winter-X Superpipe comp, get really close to the screen, and examine the skis under Andreas Hatveit s and JF Houle s feet, you might spot the Rossignol S4 Squindo. Yes, the very same one you re looking at now. The S4 is Rossi s 2009 pro park & pipe pistol, continuing the legacy of the medal-snatching Scratch Ghetto with super-poppy flex, razor edge hold, and a sick new topsheet designed by Pennsylvania coal-country artist Squindo. Construction remains basically unchanged, with a poppy THC wood core, tough 30-degree slanted sidewall, and viscoelastic shock plates in the tip and tail. Rossignol s rocking chair flex profile is springy in the tip and tail and firm underfoot, so you can ollie the S4 Squindo easily onto rails and boxes without losing big-amplitude boost in the pipe.
