Rossignol's 7 Series has turned out some of the most highly regarded skis of the last few years, and the Smash 7 is the newest addition to the mountain crushing lineup. At under eight pounds per pair and with a waist width of 92mm, it's the smallest and lightest ski in the 7 Series, which makes it perfect for intermediate riders looking for big time performance that won't overwhelm their abilities. The Smash boasts the same Powder Turn Rocker as all the other 7s, giving you the ability to pivot when you're cruising slowly, engage a solid edge at medium speeds, and rip with confidence and serious edge hold when you're opening things up, all the while maintaining float and smoothness in deeper and rougher snow.Rossignol built the Smash with a lightweight paulownia wood core that's light and springy for a fun ride, and overlaid it with a fiberglass laminate to give it enough stiffness to rip without reducing any of its liveliness. It's also been wrapped with a cap construction, which is durable, lightweight, and designed with a centered sidecut that provides easy, predictable edging power on everything from powder to groomers. With a freeride design that's been modified for intermediate rippers, the Smash 7 is a ski that can do it all, all winter long.
