They say

The Savory uses the design and construction from the very successful mens Soul 7. It uses a lighter wood core and continues with the radical rocker shape which is paired up to the ultralight Air Tip.

We say

This is one of the fattest skis we have on test within this womens category. This sort of wide platform unsurprisingly makes the Savory 7 a dream in powder, with heaps of effortless float with the  rockered tip and tail making it extremely easy to mix up turn shapes and adjust if necessary. The surprising aspect of this skis performance is its ability on the piste, for such a wide ski it grips really well, while the reactive sidecut gives lots of feedback to the skier. Overall this is a fantastic ski, which covers both on and off piste with ease.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
Great looking fat ski that skis nimbly and predictably with great edge hold on the piste.
Steph Ede
Overall solid ski which needs to be worked quite a lot off piste as it is not so turny, however it's light and floaty in the powder.
