They say

The Soulmate is built with the same technology and construction design as the men’s line-up, but with a lighter wood core. It uses a cap on the top for light and responsive performance, combined with sidewall over the edges for a smooth, solid feel.

We say

The main feedback from the test team was that it was bouncy, fun and light! It has heaps of character, with a poppy flex and a reactive sidecut. These combined to produce a ski that - at 98mm underfoot - is surprisingly lively, both on and off piste. The fat shape adds to the tip-and-tail rocker to give lots of float. And it’s accessible and easy to use for first timers in deep snow. Like many women-specific skis we tried, the Soulmate does have limits on its speed, feeling less stable and sure as the pace gets ramped up.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
Quirky and quick to turn on piste - easy to use at slower speeds
