Rossi took the award winning recipe from their 7-series and made a 98mm hybrid for on and off-hill ripping. The Sky 7 HD will suit advanced skiers seeking a playful, versatile ride to span a variety of conditions. The woven layers of carbon and basalt give it torsional stiffness and keep it surprisingly damp. Air Tip technology puts the weight near your centre of gravity and keeps the tip and tail light for an easy swing and a manoeuvrable feel. No matter where you roam, the ultra-lightweight blend of all-mountain versatility, effortless float, and freeride performance will serve you well.
