Rossignol World Cup 9S Slalom Ski


Pros: Ski's can be bought for cheap

Cons: Lacks the energy of other race ski's, Bindings are crazy expensive

Its an average ski, nothing great nothing horrible. Lacks the energy of the Blizzard, Volkl and Fischer WC SL ski's.  The Radical Line is slightly different but in my opinion no where near the other three brands I have mentioned. 


As far as a race ski there are better options.


Pros: good grip, fast edge to edge

Cons: not great in powder

  Greta ski, updated from the earlier models. Better graphic and I believe the construction is slightly different. The FIS model is as close to the Elite athletes as you'll get and believe me it's a whole lot of fun. If you're looking for a ski that will move from edge to edge quickly this is it!! Fun on all the groomers, and if you have the energy, strength and skill you can ski this ski anywhere you like!!

I ski them in a 165, my stats are ; 22 years old. Level 3 instructor, Level 1 race coach, 165lbs.



Pros: Solid and quick SL race ski

Cons: You wouldn't enjoy using this as an all-mountain ski

These are solid, dependable SL race skis.  These (gold/black) are not the newest generation but IOM, they are better than the newer (orange) models.  They are happy at speed in spite of being ony 155 cm.  They have very good bite and are quick from side to side on the course.  I tune them with 2 degrees on the base and 3 degrees on the side of the edges.  This is perhaps more angle than some would like but I am very happy with them.  They are fairly heavy and very durable.  The Rossi 155 race turntable bindings have held up well but the ski brakes are starting to be difficult to retract when I snap in.  They are about five years old so they probably just need lubed.
 I'm not really sure when I bought these or how much they cost, with the bindings, but this is the best guess I have.  I have used these for several years and am still happy with them.  I do not use them for recreational skis.  In fact, I think they are cumbersome off the course.


Pros: Amazing power and edge grip

Cons: none so far

 My high school race coach got an excellent deal on these skis for our team last year, and many racers on our team bought them.  They are amazing race skis!  They hold their edge so well, and when you get a nice turn you can really feel them pop and accelerate you into your next turn!  They work great for slalom racing, and I have even been using them for GS, and they work quite well for that too!  The edges of the top surface have been cut up and torn a bit, but that's expected of any ski.  These are great racing skis, and they are worth a lot more than I paid for them!

Rossignol World Cup 9S Slalom Ski

"Rockets" that make you desperate for the next gate thrashing frenzy, amazing new and hugely Over-sized shape is incredibly “sharp” and grippy at the start of the turn. These really are tough going but immensely rewarding and fun to ski for top experts and racers competing or just wanting the most explosive reactions from a short turning ski.
