2012 Rossignol Super 7 Ski DescriptionI remember when I first learned to ski, I hated powder. Of course I was 9 years old and probably 80 lbs. My skis were somewhere around 75mm underfoot I’m sure. Powder was my enemy...and I’m not one to let a grudge go. Which is why, these days, when a storm drops over 6” of new I reach into my quiver of snow destroyers and grab the 2012 Rossignol Super 7.
Take the Rossignol S7, put it behind bars, don’t feed or water it for a week, rattle on it’s cage every once in a while and once it’s good and riled up....release it. You now have a pair of Rossignol Super 7’s on your hands. This ski was created for dominating big mountain lines ripe with powder. Leaving you grinning from ear to ear while crushing millions of tiny flakes...over and over. The 2012 Super 7 was created for those who look higher and further than the lifts go. For the ones escaping the crowd lines to feed their big mountain and powder addictions. For the ones who charge everything no matter what it is. Two layers of titanium are the backbone behind the Super 7’s knack for on hill destruction. Combined with Rossignol’s Powder Turn rocker and WRS (weight reduction system) construction, the result is a pair of skis that will effortlessly steer and keep you afloat in the pow. So grab the Rossignol Super 7 next time you feel like becoming powder’s worst enemy. Because we all know...revenge is much sweeter than forgiveness.
Official SkiersRealm Super 7 Review:
So how'd it ski? Well as expected. Awesome. One thing I really noticed was that the weight of the ski seemed to be very evenly distributed from tip to tail. Which seemed to make it ski very smoothly. Like a new pair of truck tires. I just bought new truck tires...On the groomers I found myself looking down in a bit of amazement, wondering how a ski shaped so oddly can produce so easily. It was easy to rail long drawn out, high speed carvers and then switch to super quick/tight slalom turns. A good word to describe the way the Super 7/S7 skis: Playful. It's a very stable design at both high and low speeds. Cruising the getbacks or flats didn't produce much wandering. Which is what I call it when your ski wants to follow every rut and ridge it crosses. I didn't have to focus much of my attention to keeping them in line at all. At high speeds I felt super comfortable on them as well, and that goes for both on and off piste. On the groomers there was no sacrifice from the width or shape that I could notice. As fast as I wanted, no issues. Off piste is where the Super 7 shined tho. It's ability to float over the fresh and un groomed crud was impressive, and it never lost to much of that playful feeling either. I didn't think the agility was quite of that of the Moment Bibby Pro, but it was still up there for sure. It really gave me the mindset that the mountain was my playground to use as I please. Really the Rossignol S7's and Super 7's are known as being an awesome ski, and that's for a good reason....they're awesome. Furthermore, there haven't been any changes in them for the last what, 3 years? Other than the graphics that is, and this years graphics are the best yet I'd say. Anyone looking for an all-mountain ski will be happy with this set of sticks. Especially if you're looking for your first pair of fat skis. The S7 and Super 7 is a great gateway ski to the world of pow skis, and the 2012 versions are already showing up in shops so if you're on your game you can pick up a pair right now and prob still get to rock them in some deep snow before winter's over. Especially the way this winter has been going, seems like everyone is hitting record/near record snow falls. I feel like that's pretty much all I need to say on these things. I highly recommend a demo if you've never been on them.
Difference between Rossignol S7 & Super 7:
While you would think the differences between the S7 and Super 7 models would be easy to find information, there seems to be some confusion as to what those differences are. So let us clear things up:
This biggest difference between the S7 and the Super 7 is that the Super 7 models have two layers of Titanal in their construction in order to stiffen the ski up a bit. This helps to dampen the ski and reduce chatter when blasting through the crud. The next important difference to be aware of is that the two lengths of Super 7’s are not actually the same dimensions. The 188cm Super 7’s have dimensions of 145/115/123, which is actually the same as the traditional 188cm S7, while the 195cm Super 7 comes in dimensions 145/117/127. These dimensions come straight off of a physical pair of each ski and therefore taken to be correct for each model.

I like to charge hard down the mountain especially on powder days. Being able to straight shoot a run in 24" of fresh is what I live for. With the surface area of the super 7 195's I float on top of the snow or at least that's how it feels. The layer of metal (so I am told) in the ski makes it stiffer. I have found that it helps me to push through even the heaviest snow. I am faced with a lot of heavy snow as I am mainly skiing in the pacific northwest and this particular rossignol ski doesn't get hung up when I run out of slope. This part of the country is lacking the steeps I like but I don't really worry about it anymore.
I was extremely surprised when skiing on piste groomers. The super 7 skis flat out go. Unlike the Rossignol S7 skis (demoed them too) that seem to chatter at high speed these things are as stable as anything around. I used to check myself when blasting down the run in search of fresh powder. I am not scared when I set an edge for an aggressive GS turn. No more fear that my "powder ski" is going to wash out sending me off the trail.
I ski these things every single day. There is no need to have a powder ski, and an all mountain ski anymore. The Rosignol Super 7 is my one ski quiver.

However with the Titanal metal alloy (not Titanium)they were much more stable tracking on the hard pack and and blasting through the crud. I just ordered the 188 Super 7 for next season.
