New for 2017-18, Rossignol has redesigned the 7 Series (Super 7, Soul 7 and Sky 7), with new technology called Air Tip 2.0, a 3D fully integrated tip construction built for swing weight reduction and better flotation in soft snow. The 7 Series, Experience and Temptation lines also benefit from the addition of carbon alloy matrix, which absorbs shock and adds stability. The award-winning Rossignol snowboards are designed for versatility in a variety of terrain and snow conditions.
Rossignol’s company history can be traced back 110 years to an innovative man from a mountain town in the French Alps. By all accounts, Abel Rossignol was an inventor with a passion for woodworking and skiing. He lived in the mountainous area of France called Voirons (close to the international headquarters today). In 1907, he was inspired by early ski competitions. At that time, ski craftsman handpicked each piece of wood, often chosen from certain regions to have a desired effect on ski performance. His first model was 170 cm long and 65 mm underfoot.
