Rossi B2 - old vs. new

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all;

I'm curious about the differences between the original B2, (not Bandit XX), and the '06-'07 B2, (blue). I have a pair of the originals in 170 and have found the newer ones for an incredible price, (new).

Is the newer model much different from the original? I really like mine, but don't want to waste money on something not much different. I was thinking of dropping down to a 166, (I'm 170 lbs, 5'8").
Happy new year!

Rossi B2's

The 06-07 B2's (Blues) are more like the Bandit XX (the real original). I didn't really care for the "originals" as you call them, and liked the 06-07 B2's way more...so much more I bought a pair!

I'm 5'8" and weigh 160 and ski the 174's...166 too short in the pow for me, if you are skiing mostly in NE probably not an issue.

The 06-07 B2s have a more lively feel than the original B2s. They still are a fairly damp ski, but not as boringly damp as the original B2. They are also slightly wider than the previous B2s giving them a bit more stability & float in soft snow.

Agree with Rio...ski is the right combination of liveliness and dampness, much more fun than the original B2, also like the way the lengths are sized in the 06-07 model.

Got the blue ones on SAC this summer.
Skied them recently and they are a blast!!!!!!

183cms (?) and I am 5 10" 185 and an advanced skier.

Entire setup was under $400 shipped to my door which were separate Look PX12 lifters.

Best bang for my ski buck in a looooong time.
