Rossignol Black Ops Sender Skis

Like its stiffer brother, the Rossignol Black Ops Sender skis are built and shaped for deep snow and rowdy lines and everything in between. With a stated 104 mm waist width in the 178 cm length, the skis are made for the deeper end of the snow spectrum but that doesn't preclude them from performing strongly on groomers and firmer snow as well. In fact, they have an impressive on-trail character, regardless of width or shape. When it comes in handy, however, the size and shape and profile are perfectly suited for the softer stuff. That's where the Sender really lights it up. Tip and tail rocker will keep you afloat while the camber underfoot not only provides pop and energy but also edge grip in technical terrain. It's nice to know that you have that capability when the going gets sketchy, and the Sender is built to handle all of those unexpected inconsistencies in the snow at pretty much any speed. Built with a Paulownia wood core, Air Tip inserts, and a carbon/fiberglass laminate, the skis are very stable and well-built for their weight. They're on the lighter side of the competitor's models, so lighter skiers or advancing athletes will get the best match in terms of performance. For anyone looking for that wider one-ski quiver or a powder ski for deep days, the 2021 Rossignol Black Ops Sender skis are the perfect tools for the job.

Hi Jeff and Bob, just watched several of your ski reviews (thank you for the insight - very informative and helpful, great job!!). Just wanted to ask your opinion on the best ski to purchase this season. I'm an expert east coast skier - mostly Sugarloaf in ME but also Stowe, Jay, and Killington in VT on occasion. I have been on 3 pairs of Rossi Soul 7's the last several years and loved the versatility and light wgt they offered me in the trees specifically the tail smearing capability. I love playfulness and quickness in the trees but like to smear tails... Watched specifically your video reviews and am considering skis similar to the Nordica Enforcer 104 and the Rossi Black Ops Sender (not the TI). I demo'd the Nordica 104 a couple of years ago and thought that they were a bit tougher to smear in the trees - maybe due to 2 sheets of metal? (but was used to the Souls at the time...). I do however love the aggressiveness of the Nordicas (and great reviews -such as yours! - but I believe you did suggest that they are "playfull"). Jeff, you mentioned at the end of the Rossi Sender video, that these were replacements for the Souls even though they've been updated with a bit more dampness (a good thing!) but overall, they still sounded a bit "less-smeary" (my interpretation - not your words!). I have a pair of Rossi Exp. 86TI for the harder days, so need something for [tight] trees (2-ski quiver) - Nordica Enf 104 or the Rossi Senders? Any suggestions? Thank you again for all of the reviews and insight! Tom

Hello Tom,

Thanks for your inquiry and we appreciate your feedback on our videos!

The Nordica Enforcers do have metal in them, (A dual laminate) so this would be a stiffer ski than the Rossi Senders which have no metal in them but their core is reinforced with a Carbon/Fiberglass laminate which does add some stiffness as well as snap and pop. We did mention that the new Enforcers are bit more playful than the older version, but its still a stiff ski that is all there. If you are looking for more smearability, pivoting and slashing, we would lean towards the Black Ops Sender. Softer and bit more approachable, but still damp and plenty of performance when things frim up.

Hope this helps and think snow!
