Here is his first junkie review of a great new series of skis from Rossignol – now let’s just hope for some snow!

Rossignol S7 Caballero

Rossignol S7 Caballero

Rossignol S7 Caballero – Gluttony

What do you think of when you hear the words Twin-Tip, Reverse Camber, and Gluttony? If the 2009 Rossignol S7 Caballero doesn’t pop into your head, then you’re just not thinking like a true gear junkie. The new Seven Artistic Sins (SAS) series from Rossignol masterfully combines the art of the seven deadly sins with a set of ultimate snow riding tools culminating in the insatiable S7. These bad boys revolutionize the meaning of back country powder free-riding with an incredible reverse camber (picture grandpa’s rocking chair). You’ll be floating through the gnarly pow pow like Dante through the third circle of the Inferno with these skis. These planks are 100% back country and reserved for those gluttonous skiers who want more powder than they can handle.

  • I believe any one of these skis could be described as a “foot-gasm”…can’t wait for the next installment of “gnarly pow-pow” in the Sierras.

    Will start snow dances tonight.
