They say

The all new Soul 7 HD W, now amplified with Rossignol's Carbon Alloy Matrix.

We say

The Soul 7 has a wide tip that allows good float without feeling too heavy up front. In powder it feels brilliant, you can confidently go fast in big turns knowing that it has the ability to quickly steer out of its line when needed. For its size it is surprisingly nippy from turn to turn, with a quick pivoting action. This makes it exceptionally easy to change direction. On the piste it feels pretty wide and heavy, it’s character is really different in this environment where it can feel less reactive and slower on to the edge.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
Very well adjusted for off piste conditions due to the wide, but lightweight tip
Eilidh McLeod
Great stability and movement in steep and deep. Good fun for charging long and short turns
