S7 or super 7 for Vail

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I ski Vail between 70 and 80 days. I have not owned a pair of Rossignols skis for years, however I heard so much about the S7, I will probably do it. But now there is the super seven, I don't know anyone who has it, or skied it. Do I get the S7 or super 7. I will only use this ski on powder days only.

Primarily depends on how much you weigh.  The Super 7 metal layer makes it stiffer.  If you are over 190 lbs., you would probably like it better.  If you're under that weight, you would probably like the regular S7.  Great powder skis.

You gonna charge? go with the Super7. If your just gonna cruise em in pow then the s7 is unnecassary. it also depends on your weight i guess.

 liked my s7 and sold it after a season wanting the super 7. I ended up skiing czars, which are great, but not the s7 great. I rode the super in the 195 and it was a burly ski, which made me choose the super in the 188 this year. I was using and comparing the Atlas and super7 195 and for the week that I skied them I would buy Atlas in the bigger lengths. I am going with 188 super7 this season...we'll see!

My take:

normal s7: super fun and playful and truely best ski ever for me in the POW until going super fast, too fast! and also, hucking and falling back a bit in your landings on firmer snow the tails would shoot out sometimes. But, for general POW skiing, I cant say enough good stuff.

Super 7 188: Be a lighter charging skier. Hopefully it will be like s7 with balls to go faster and stiffer tail. I wish it was flat.

Super7 195: Be a heavier charging skier. I struggled with mobility on it until about 30mph...then it was killer.

I am a 80-100 day year skier, but light (165 lbs wet or drunk). Not a trickster, but like a good huck when the snow allows.
