The brand new Rossignol Sky 7 HD is a very well rounded ski for the strong intermediate to expert skier looking for a highly versatile ride both on the groomers and off the beaten path. The 98mm waist provides ample flotation in the soft snow, but feels surprisingly quick and nimble on the groomers. Made with Rossignol's Powder Turn Rocker, the Sky 7 floats and smears like a dream, but thanks to the new Carbon Alloy Matrix, the Sky 7 can tear up a groomer with ease. The Carbon Alloy Matrix uses a mix of Carbon Fiber and Basalt to provide extra grip on firm snow, more responsiveness anywhere on the mountain, and a stable feeling no matter how fast you are skiing. The Sky 7 uses a Centered Sidecut to give you a playful and easy to maneuver feeling, while directing your pressure to the edges right underneath your feet. Rossignol's Air Tip Construction pulls heavier material away from the tip and tail of the Sky 7 HD for an easy to maneuverable feeling in the tight trees, wide open slopes, and anywhere there is enough snow for you to get after it.
A: The Sky 7 HD has two different manufactures recommended mounting positions. An all-mountain which I would recommend for everyday skiing and a freeride mounting position that is 2cm back from that. Unless you are strictly using it as a powder ski the all-mountain position would be the best spot. The all-mountain position gives you the most versatility.
