Rossignol Zenith Z9 Oversize (2008)
Another all-mountain performer with strong frontside properties—one tester said the Z9 is "amazingly accurate." Damp, stable, and precise, it responds well to energy input, but doesn’t feel skittish when you want to lay off.
Power it up and you can bend it into any turn shape.
It’s a tad skinny for that big storm day.
"The Z9s made me want to burn slalom turns all day." —Charlotte Moats
