2009 Rossignol S7 Caballero Ski

Posted

Pros: you name it.. it does it.

Cons: sold out

I demoed this last spring, and it was everything everyone was telling me about.  Really slashy, and controllable, but you could open it up without thinking about it.  I demoed a bunch of the new reverse camber models from K2, Salomon, Volkl, and Armada and this was hands down the reverse camber ski on firm snow.  It speaks for itself in pow, but what really made an impression on me was how it railed turns on the groomers.

Pros: Excellent in new snow and contrary to some views skis very well on the groomers

Cons: Not a ski for a one ski quiver.

Skiing 100 days per year for 35 years.
Now I'm old
Still get down most mountains without trouble.
2009 Rossignol S7 Caballero Ski
Description:

Rossignol designed the S7 Caballero to split the difference between powder-only, reverse-camber, reverse-sidecut skis and traditionally-shaped fat skis, and the result is one of the most hotly-anticipated planks of the season. The S7 has a fat, rockered tip and tail profile, with an early taper at both ends for surfy, smeary pow turns with minimal hooking. Underfoot, traditional sidecut and camber let you not only make it back to the lift, but do so with style and ease. A full wood core and traditional sidewall construction give you damp, consistent flex in soft snow, and solid edge hold when you tip it over on hardpack. The whole radical package makes the S7 incredibly well-suited for Western big-mountain backcountry terrain, a quick and responsive partner that plays hard no matter where you find yourself from waist-deep Solitude trees and chopped-up Squallywood chutes, to fluffy Crested Butte pillows and wide-open steeps at Big Sky. The bold graphic comes courtesy of Mr. Steve Caballero, another icon of innovation in the progressive sports arena and a participant in Rossignol s Seven Artistic Sins cross-creation program.
