Rossi’s 7 Series has been around for years now, starting with the game-changing S7, and the Soul 7 keeps things pretty true to the “fun-shaped” heritage of that ski. The Super 7 and Squad 7 are bigger and burlier, but the Soul 7’s 106mm width and versatile Power Turn Rocker help it conquer any type of snow and all types of terrain, from deep blower to leftover crud to wind-buffed cream cheese to groomers. Power Turn’s large amount of tip splay smooths out rough snow and helps you float through the deep, and camber underfoot provides plenty of stability and edge grip when you’re pinching the throttle on the way back to the lift. Rossignol also incorporated its honeycomb Air Tip 2.0 technology, which lightens the tip to reduce the chatter and flap of old-school tip rocker and lowers swing weight to keep the Soul 7 nimble through tight trees and in the air. By building the core out of lightweight Paulownia wood, Rossignol kept the Soul 7 quick and maneuverable, and reduced the weight to make it more backcountry friendly. The new Soul also has a slightly more squared-off tail, which allows easier skin attachment. Vertical sidewalls are also new on this year’s Soul 7, which give the ski a bit more edging power and a more hard-charging look. And, while it’s nice and light, the race-inspired Carbon Alloy Matrix in the core keeps things stiff enough to charge when you’re feeling aggressive.
