Technical info:
Seek is a new addition to Rossignol´s 7 series. This is a medium light semicap with one of the shortest sidecut radiuses in the test, at least in the front ski. A lot of sidecut works well with the fairly abrupt rocker transition in the front. The rocker in the back is quite a lot smaller. The flex is soft in the front and stiffer in the back, but otherwise more or less average.

On snow:
All the test riders describe Rossignol Seek 7 as playful and easy to maneuver. It has a lot of sidecut and a soft flex, especially in the front, and this makes it easy to initiate the turn. It is very easy to control. The sidecut and the abrupt rocker transition makes it a little unstable. Seek 7 is a good choice for ski tourers who want maximum playfulness, preferably in terrain that requires a lot of turns.
