- Is the Rossignol Sin7 a good ski for tour skiing (in terms of weight, float...)?
- Do tour ski bindings support the same as a normal binding? I might want to do some cliff drops and take a medium-sized kicker in the park from time to time.
Firstly, awesome ski choice, they are an incredible do-it-all (except park) ski. Secondly, yes plenty of people use them as touring skis. They are not a touring specific ski, so not as light as some, but still a great touring ski. I do laugh when people say that modern AM skis are too heavy for touring. I have a pair of B2 Bandits which were toured for years, and they are heavier than the Sins. Float is great, in Europe they're very much considered a powder ski, but they can handle anything.
Yes, touring bindings will handle whatever you throw at them. Generally if you get bindings designed for a particular width of ski, they'll handle whatever that ski is likely to do.
The reason I found this thread is because I'm converting my Sins to touring for this season.
