They say

With a redesigned construction and new graphics the Soul 7 gives progressive freeride performance and is the pinnacle of freeride versatility for expert to intermediate skiers.

We say

This is another ski that immediately feels easy to use, with a light construction and the ability to pivot and change turn shape really quickly. Although that’s the first impression, the Soul 7 actually grips very well on hardpack with strong edge grip and a smooth round turn shape. This carries on into the crud and chopped up conditions where it blasts through the chop with ease, always laying down a smooth turn shape. It’s mainly in bigger arcs that it feels stable and comfortable, in shorter turns it feels less lively from edge to edge.

Tester Comments

Bella Seel
User friendly, suitable for a woman who wants to improve. Honeycomb light tip and tail makes it easier to turn the ski
Amanda Pirie
This ski powered through chopped up off piste conditions
