Broad Peak VS Se7en Summits

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,


Getting some skis and wanted to know the primary differences between the Dynafit Broad Peaks and Se7en Summit skis.

Both seem fairly similar according to web info, and I was wondering what would be the best all-rounder for an intermediate skier. I ski anything from solid icy snow that hardly dents, to sugary powder, and everything in between. I am not quite up to descending tight chutes yet, but local terrain is dotted with many rocks so a tight turning radius and a nimble ski would be much appreciated.


Any info is much appreciated!

7 Summits are a bit wider (80 mm in the longest, 178 cm vs. 74 mm in the 176), a bit longer, and a little heavier.  I have the 178-cm 7 Summits, haven't even seen the Broad Peaks.  7 Summits are relatively stiff (mine evidently were made in the Blizzard factory), hold and edge well, turn very easily, and sink quickly in lighter powder (I'm 230 lbs).  If I were you, I would be looking for reviews of the Baltoro as well (84 mm waist up to 176 cm and 86 mm in the 183; all with an early rise tip).  I'm getting rid (sell or dismantle) of my 178 cm 7 summits because I also have  184 Volkl Snowwolfs (76 mm waist) that I really like in corn snow (altho the two are not that much different--the Summits just a bit stiffer I think; both do well in ice, the 7 summits better in crusty snow) and I like skis in the mid- to high 180s.  But my go-to bc ski is a 187 Manaslu (95 mm waist) that has the early rise tip and I really like it; I  also have a 182 Stoke for really deep snow days (106 mm waist).
