Rossignol S3 Skis 2012: The Rossignol S3 Skis are a narrower-waisted version of the S7. Sharing the same Powder Turn Rocker as its big brother with low camber underfoot and high tip and tail rocker; the S3 is a versatile all-terrain vehicle. Powder Turn Rocker provides amazing floatation, tracking and an efficient angle of attack that gives skiers effortless steering and instant speed control. At 98mm underfoot, the S3 is a functional and lightweight all-mountain powder ski that is incredibly maneuverable, easy-to-steer and forgiving. Whether using an Alpine, AT, or freeheel bindings, the S3 has the quickness and agility perfect for poaching secret stashes in and out-of-bounds. It is a versatile adventure ski and the ideal lightweight powder tool for skiers who love exploring all of the nooks and crannies on the mountain.
