They say

The brilliant Super 7 is essentially a wider version of the Soul 7. It uses a wide, rockered ‘Air tip’ tip for extra flotation and has a short, shallow sidecut underfoot to give good grip.

We say

It feels instantly very easy to use, with a wonderfully smooth flex which feels nicely matched up with the rockered shape. This enables it to rise up very easily. Once on the move, it can pivot, smear and dump speed with the best of them. It’s quite a soft ski, so it feels playful and easy to use right from the start. That soft character can make it a little more of a handful in firmer conditions, when the huge shovel flaps more noticeably. But it’s very well balanced, and so seems easy to adjust back to centre. Overall, a great big-mountain ski that’s easy to use.
