Advanced level freeride skier
Heyman's rating of this ski:
Considering his skiers profile:
Extremely versatile freeride ski
When centuries ago some Nordic god invented the ski, this is what he had in mind: the Rossignol Soul 7. It's just everything a pair of skis needs to be. It's a wide ski, but very nimble as well. It carves good on piste, yet has enough float in powder. It cuts through chopped snow and crud beautifully. It's stable, yet as playful as a puppy. Versatility all along. And the appearance is breathtaking.
See through tip and tail
When riding the Rossignol Soul 7 I discovered the Walhalla of skiing. Ultra maneuverability combined with float and stability. You can have tremendous fun in deep powder and ski back to the lift carving some nice big turns on piste. This one definitely deserves a 5 star rating. The Rossignol Soul 7 features a subzero cool design. What you cannot see in this picture is the transparent honeycomb tip and tail. It's just amazing when you see the sun shine through the tip of your ski. The all black matte middle part is susceptible to scratches, but who cares anyway.
Rossignol about the Soul 7
"An award-winning fusion of backcountry innovation and progressive freeride performance, the new SOUL 7 is the pinnacle of freeride versatility for expert to intermediate skiers. Featuring our patented Air Tip technology; Powder Turn Rocker profile; ultra-lightweight paulownia construction; and 106mm waist width, Soul 7 offers an award-winning blend of all-mountain versatility, effortless float, and lightweight backcountry performance to "push your boundaries with confidence". Air Tip enhances floatation and control even further, keeping tips naturally above the snow surface for fatigue-free maneuverability and easy directional changes while reducing "tip flap" in variable snow. No matter where the snow takes you, whether resort-based or backcountry bound – the future of freeride is here with the industry's most heavily demanded, acclaimed, and versatile new freeride ski.", says Rossignol.
