2014 Rossignol Soul 7 Ski Reviews

A leader in the 100-something ski class for 2014

Posted

Pros: Light and versatile, a worthy successor to the S7

Cons: Prefers tighter turns to long arcing turns

Here's Phil talking about the Rossignol Soul 7, complete with some on-the-snow footage:     Our testers gave a lot of attention to the 100-110 mm underfoot class for 2014, and this was at the top of the class, living on the finesse, quick and playful end of the spectrum. Its not so light and lively as to be nervous in any conditions we saw, including classic Tahoe crud, but it doesn't blast through like a metal laminate ski. This will also be an interesting option for backcountry skiers who focus on soft snow touring, thanks to its weight and versatile shape (one trick ponies don't tend to work out so well in the variable conditions found out of bounds).

Pros: Light, playful and very maneuverable.

Cons: Almost too light, limited to shorter to medium radius turns.

Review: The new Soul 7 from Rossignol is a very important ski for them for a couple of reasons. The "One Of-Something" waist width segment will be a highly contested category for 2014 with many incoming new models along with some established models that are going after a segment that is still trying to figure it out on who this segment is for and what these skis will do. The Soul 7 is the ski/basket that Rossi is putting it's eggs in. Starting with the visuals, it is one of the cleanest designs Rossignol has come up with in a long time. a simple black mid body with bright yellow tips and tails along with a big R, there is no doubt that this is a Rossignol ski.
