Reviewer Heyman

"Edge grip and accelleration are crucial elements for a slalom ski. Edge grip to challenge you each time to turn sharper and go almost horizontal through the turn. Accellaration to shoot you into the next turn until your legs burn."

Fabulous slalom ski


I think Rossignol has really outdone itself with the 9SL. This ski is so good on-piste that I enjoyed my testruns immensely. The Rossignol Radical 9SL is a very rigid ski with a little tip rocker. That rocker is what makes it so versatile. You just twist your knees and immediately you're in an intensely radical short turn. The 9SL is very agile and you can switch sides in the blink of an eye. Some slalom skis are rigid and agile, but don't perform well when the slopes are not perfectly prepared like the Elan SLX Waveflex Fusion. Other slalom skis are more forgiving, but are flabby and lack agressiviness like the Rossignol Radical 8SL. The 9SL however is an über-slalom ski which handles every condition perfectly and is as rigid and agressive as you could have hoped for.

Millimeter sharp precision

On a busy day when the slopes are crowded, the Rossignol Radical 9SL is the ski you want. Because you're able to shoot throught that crowd at maximum speed and with millimeter sharp precision. This ski is made for the advanced skier who wants maximum speed, maximum carve, maximum control and still have responsiveness to uneven pistes. Through the years I lost interest in slalom skis, but the Rossignol Radical 9SL brought that interest right back. I want this ski!

Rossignol about the Radical 9SL

"Power Turn Rocker delivers faster turn initiation for more aggressive lines, while Slant Nose asymmetrical tips improve swing weight to put the ski on edge even faster", says Rossignol. I don't know if it's the Power Turn Rocker and the Slant Nose, but this ski turns lightning fast and is on edge in a blink of the eye.
