Rossignol 4S Replica Skis + Axial2 140 Bindings 2009

Posted

Pros: Great looking skis

Cons: Too short and not enough shape

This was a fun ski to get out on. These were actually FairtoMiddlin's skis that he had shipped to me. I could definitely feel the ski was too short for me and as a GS, I would have preferred it to be a 185ish ski or of it was to be this short, would have preferred more shape (and width), the current shape is only slightly more modern than the original 4S. I Also think the ski would perform better without all the lift of the Axial2 binding and would be better mounted flat. 

 

OK..the Rossi bindings were all wrong for these skis, they really should have a more retro looking binding on the skis...

 

Rossignol 4S Replica

 

Sure while the Axial140 might work fine, these need a more applicable binding. I would never be one to condone using a non indemnified binding, you have to admit the MRR just looks better. While the 4S Replica might be a more modern shape than the original, at 21M in a 175, these not ski very modern but...they are not far off of what a modern mogul ski skis like, so we set them up to be more of a bump ski. 

 

Note to the powers to be at Rossignol. I had these at The Start Haus and it has been a long time since a ski created such a buzz standing in the corner more than one person said, "If Rossi brought these graphics back.... I would buy some". I agree, id these graphics were brought out on a upper 70mm/low 80mm carver..there would be a pair in my quiver for sure.
