They say

The Soulmate 86 has a super lightweight durable design for increased power for skiing over the entire mountain. It packs power when needed and an agile edge to edge for a fun all mountain ride.

We say

The Soulmate got pretty even scores in all terrain and conditions. On the piste they were stiff enough to give good levels of grip for both short and long turns with great edge hold throughout the arc. When moving into deeper backcountry conditions that sturdy construction allows it to charge through any chopped up snow with ease. At slower speeds it felt a bit less lively being quite slow to initiate the turn. Overall this is a well rounded ski at a great price, which covers all the bases required to ski any terrain, any conditions.

Tester Comments

Lynn Sharp
This ski performs better in the off piste. Its reliable but doesn’t inspire
Steph Ede
Good value for money and look great! Manoeuvrable, grippy on piste for both short and long turns
