They say

No introduction required. The Soul 7 is the world’s most celebrated freeride ski. For winter 2017/18, it returns in full force, more playful and alluring than ever.

We say

The new Soul 7 feels really different to last year’s version. One of the striking differences is that the ski feels like it has a much smoother, progressive flex. This makes a huge difference when driving the ski through variable, chopped up snow conditions where it feels totally balanced and incredibly easy to read. In deep powder it still has those awesome floating abilities for which it is well known. It feels like a ski that surfs the snow, rather than having to be driven through it, this makes it very playful, easy to use and generally great fun in any backcountry conditions.

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
Rossignol have refined a classic to reduce tip chatter and give a more dampened ride. A great freeride ski
Pete Davison
An amazing pure powder ski, great float in the deep and very forgiving
