They say

The new women’s S7 takes the Spoon Tip and the centered sidecut and uses a lighter core and shorter lengths to suit women skiers.

We say

The S7 is incredibly easy to use, the huge tip rises up effortlessly in deep snow and makes skiing in powder a breeze. That easy lift from the shovel of the ski is the main characteristic that comes out of this ski, for skiers worried about their abilities on a fresh powder it’s a great choice. Even in crusty or heavy deep snow conditions the shape manages to get lift and steer with ease. However, for any other type of skiing on harder snow the front of the ski feels too clumpy and awkward to be efficient in turns.

Tester Comments

Lynn Sharp
A lot of lift from the front of the ski, they were always on top of the snow, whatever the conditions
Rowena Phillips
Great float, easy to use
