The new Saffron 7 in Rossignol’s new 7 Series was designed for surfy playfulness, but testers gave it high marks across the board. "Slash, surf, spray, jib or carve—this ski is playful and versatile," Gleich said. "It's lively and easy to turn thanks to the tip profile. I'd use this at the resort or in the backcountry." Construction includes a 98-millimeter waist, a lightweight wood core, traditional sidewalls for edging and progressive tip rocker with tapered tail rocker. "The tip can be a little floppy at speed but you don't notice it underfoot because it carves well and cuts through crud like a knife," Weatherbee said.
