they no longer have a financial situation, the company who sold them bought them back for 8 mill less than what they sold it for, rossy is now in a better situation than probably any one, and there outerwear next year is awesome!
they are expensive. an instance of "you get what you pay for" i think. but when you are a teenager and barely making enough for a pass and skis, given the choice between a pair of skis for 300 or 700, your gonna pick the 300 dollar skis. even if they break, you can replace them once before they are even near the cost of the first pair of rossis.
there's a certain point where it neither looks good nor functions properly...that's when you know you look steezy - no_steeze
Ive never heard bad things about Rossi's really. They're tanks, ride great, keep their camber. The S4's have great reviews. They just retail for way too much. No kid can afford them. If they dropped their prices a bit, perhaps they would find themselves more competitive.
