Reviewer Heyman

"One-Ski Quiver: the ultimate ski that carves like a slalom ski, accellerates like a GS ski, is as comfortable as an all-mountain ski, cuts through chop like a freeride ski and surfs in bottomless powder like a fat powder ski. Impossible. But which ski comes closest?"

To all my reviews

 

Agile and playful freeride ski


The Rossignol Sin 7 is only 98mm wide underfoot, which for a freeride ski is quite narrow. Nevertheless it floats and turns pretty easy in powder snow. No wonder considering the huge rocker at tip and tail, which make up 50% of the ski lenght. The slight camber produces ample edge hold to carve on the groomers. But the Sin 7 really comes into its own on bumps and in chopped-up snow. And the skis look super cool!

Honeycomb tip and tail

Like the rest of the highly successful Rossignol 7 Series the Sin 7 features a see through honeycomb tip and tail. They not only look cool, but reduce weight considerably as well. But where in the rest of the 7 Series they also reduce tip-flap, they don't in the Sin 7, especially the 188cm length version. When going fast on piste the tips start to clapper uncontrollably, which is really annoying. That's why I give the Sin 7 only a 3 star rating. The skis do everything right, but they can't handle top speed on hard pack. But if you never ride at top speed, this is a perfect ski. But don't take the 188cm length.

Rossignol about the 7 Series

"Now featuring our revolutionary Air Tip, the new SIN 7 offers award-winning all-mountain performance with a playful freeride feel for expert to intermediate skiers. Featuring our patented Air Tip technology; Powder Turn Rocker profile; sandwich laminate construction; and 98mm waist width, the Sin 7 offers an award-winning blend of all-mountain versatility, effortless float, and accessible backcountry performance. Air Tip enhances floatation and control even further, keeping tips naturally above the snow surface for fatigue-free maneuverability and easy directional changes while reducing "tip flap" in variable snow. No matter where the snow takes you, whether resort-based or backcountry bound – the future of freeride is here. 70% Powder / 30% All-Mountain", says Rossignol. I agree that the leightened tip reduces the need for a good thechnique, which makes this ski accessible to intermediate skiers as well.
