As far as our testers were concerned, Rossignol hit the ball out of the park with the Star 7. It was the top-rated ski in the women's powder category, earning high scores across the board in all test fields. Rossignol fuses backcountry, freestyle and freeride with the new women’s 7 Series including the Star 7 (116-millimeter waist), Savory 7 (106-millimeter waist) and Saffron 7 (98-millimeter waist). The Star 7 features a lightweight paulownia wood core, Rossi’s Powder Turn Rocker and new Air Tip technology, an air-filled honeycomb pattern at both ends of the ski's core, designed to reduce swing weight in the tip and total weight of the ski. "It wants to make surfy medium to big radius turns," Gleich said. "It may be a little slow side-to-side, but it's as easy to slide and dump speed as it is to stomp powder landings. And it has no speed limit." Rodman called it "a forgiving ski for any ability. It gets the job done on the groomers, but powers through crud and floats in powder with ease."
