Pros
Rossignol has produced here an excellent slalom ski that not only performs really well but is also homogenous and accessible. While the combination of performance and accessibility makes it similar to the Omeglass, it's the skis agility that really sets it apart. The ski is exceptionally lively and incisive, so you can rapidly move from one edge to the other.
Cons
Pure performance is slightly less good than the Dynastar Omeglass. The ski is more technically demanding on steep slopes and hard snow.
Conclusion for the Rossignol Radical 9SL
The testers second favourite, the Rossignol Radical 9SL is a vitamin-packed ski that we highly recommend to a wide public of good to excellent skiers who're looking for a fun-packed ski with lots of character that reacts fast and is fun to use, but which nonetheless remains relatively accessible, versatile and comfortable for a slalom ski.
