Rossi s7 vs salomon rocker2

post #1 of 3

Anyone skied the rocker2 yet. Wondering if they are worth waiting tile this fall to get, or go with the Rossi s7 which has proven to be a great powder ski. Any suggestions?

I did a bunch of ski test runs at a retailers demo day a couple of weeks ago.  Day 2 was powder skis for me & the Rocker 2's were on my list.  This was the only full rocker that I reviewed & at 122 mm waist was also the widest, IIRC.  I also skied the new Super 7 & own the current S7.  Reviews will be at onthesnow.com in the Fall or late summer.

 

For a full rocker powder ski I thought the R2 was much more manageable than I would have expected.  Best in the true powder than in the denser windblown stuff.  If you are going for a deep powder only ski, then this one would be pretty good.  If you are going for versatility in a wide range of conditions and terrain, then the S7 may be the better choice.  Another ski in the category that sticks out in my mind from that day was the Goode Rahu.  Silky smooth & super light.

Thanks for the feedback.  One quick question.  Is the standard S7 a light ski.  I'm only 5'6" so I don't know that I would like the Super S7 at 193cm?  I'm thinking about the S7 in a 178cm.
