For the past few years the Soul 7 has been one of the most popular freeride skis on the market, for 2018 Rossignol have started from the ground up to rebuild and improve the bestselling model in their 7 range. One of the big changes is the new Air Tip 2.0; which covers a greater surface area of the ski, is lighter, thinner and better integrated.
Rossignol's Carbon Alloy Matrix is a Basalt fibre and Carbon fibre weave which adds torsional rigidity to the ski. It makes it easier than ever to really get the Soul 7 onto its rails and put weight behind a turn. This dramatic increase in strength comes at only the most minimal compromise in the famous manoeuvrability of this super light ski.
The new Air Tip 2.0 now covers a greater amount of the ski than previously; however it is 20% lighter than the previous models, making it easier than ever to pivot upon and more playful, opening it up to a whole range of skiers. The tip has been integrated more towards the core of the ski than previously, giving a smoother transition of power from the mid of the ski, to the tip. The reinforced 3D structure has a coral like structure that ultimately results in a ski with impressive levels of tip stability, considering the amount of rocker present, so you can charge down hardpack as well as you can fly through powder.
The Air Tip 2.0 combined with the light paulownia wood core, a strong rocker profile and a substantial 106mm waist result in a ski that remains very user friendly as well as becoming more powerful, stable and harmonious than it has previously been. The Soul 7 has always been a super versatile freeride ski. If you love bumps, powder, trees, and steeps then these will be great for you.
We would recommend this ski for anyone looking for a powder ski with strong all mountain capabilities, its ease of lends itself well to intermediate powder skiers all the way through to experts looking for supreme float in a lightweight super playful profile.
