Featuring innovative new technologies inspired by our race division, 2LCT and Diago Fiber, coupled with an Extended Core profile and new Damp Tech integration, this new era of Rossignol freeride history offers the perfect blend of precision and progressive freeride performance in an easy-to-ski platform that Outside says offers, “accessible power – the ability of a ski to perform with minimal user input,” adding, “No matter how fast or slow you’re moving, you stop thinking about the ski and focus on your line.”

Freeride has been an anchor point for Rossignol for nearly a quarter of a century. From the long-running Bandit series – one of the very the first dedicated freeride collections; to the S7 – an iconic design that revolutionized powder skiing forever; to more recently, the Soul 7 – another industry game-changer that brought powder skiing to the masses with its innovative and unmistakable Air Tip technology. Rossignol has proven time and again that we’re able to throw a grenade into what’s proven successful, reinvent, and push the freeride forward in dramatic fashion.
