Product Info

For the new Rossignol Soul 7 Skis, Rossignol updated the super popular S7 platform and created the most versatile ski in the entire line. At 106 mm underfoot, the Soul 7 makes for an amazing touring ski, thanks to a super light Paulownia wood core and Air Tip technology. Alternately, use the Soul 7 as an everyday ripper that's comfortable in all terrain and snow conditions. Try it and see - no matter where you use it or how you ski it, the Rossignol Soul 7 will kill it.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Powder Turn RockerNewly redesigned to deliver even more versatility and superior flotation. A longer, more progressively rockered tip minimizes "tip flap" in variable snow and hardpack while the tapered, more powerful tail drops into soft snow, enhancing flotation and providing effortless steering with instant speed control. Traditional camber underfoot delivers power, energy and edge grip for groomed snow performance.

Sidecut

Centered SidecutThe sidecut features a unique tapering of tip and tail with a short sidecut directly underfoot. A deep radius gives edge grip and power underfoot while a short length of sidecut allows easy steering and playfulness.

Shape

Air TipAn all-new, patented air-honeycomb design reduces the weight and dramatically reduces the swing weight of the ski by nearly 30%. This significantly enhances maneuverability, giving the ski an ultra-light feel. The tip is reinforced with ABS for durability and enhanced torsional rigidity.

Core

Light CoreAll-new ultra-lightweight Paulownia wood core with Race Department Diago Fiber laminate combines with the Air Tip to reduce overall ski weight by 20%, enhancing maneuverability and touring capabilities, with no compromise in downhill performance.

Laminates

Free V.A.S.Visco elastomer material helps to smooth the rocker/camber transition, reducing "tip flap" and increasing stability, and maintaining control and snow contact in variable conditions.

Sandwich LaminateWood cores with high tech laminates provide the ultimate in stability, power and durability.

Additional Features

Compatible with Soul 7 Climbing SkinPre-Cut

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

These are magic skis - truly great performance in powder, moguls, soft snow, hard snow - everything I've skiied this season so far. Better than my previous frontside skis on groomed and hardpack. And great in power, as you would expect. Easy and fun in both kinds of snow. And amazing in moguls. And most unbelievably - no thigh burn - really, even early season skiing. Somehow, the rocker, camber, turning radius, and lightness combine perfectly.

        Comments about Rossignol Soul 7 Skis 2015:

        These were a gift and what a gift they are! I'm a very picky skier and found these are by far the best ski's I've ever had. I was using K2 Hardsides for crud and Atomic Bent Chetlers for powder. I noticed immediately these were better then both in all conditions - The new design is VERY light and easy to turn. They are great off piste, fun on groomers (with a little squirrelyness), and excellent thru the crud. The wide ski with a side cut idea creates a ski that just kind of slaloms thru the various snow. The don't chatter on ice moguls like my K2's do and don't feel like a plank with now edges like the Atomic's. I am 5/9 and got the 180cm which was a little long but I highly recommend it. If you can afford to buy this ski - immediately go out and buy it.

        4 lbs lighter than the bentchelters they replaced and a whole lot more fun. turn on a dime, fairly stable at speed with much less chatter than other twin tips. but prefer my stockily storm riders for hard pack go fast days.
        easy on the knees.
        They just are the most FUN skis I have ever skied. Mammoth, Big Sky, Steamboat and Vail last year. 55 days on them last season
        GO ONE SIZE BIGGER, IF YOU SKI 178/180 GO TO 188S!!!

          I love everything about these skis! I am 5'10 165 pounds and I got the 188s because I would consider myself an expert level skier. I am very glad I went up in size over the 180 option because I have found them to be very maneuverable and easy to work around in right spaces and they are relatively soft so the added length allows me to put a little more power into then. I've gotten to use then on groomers, powder, and some slush and they have excelled in all areas. I highly recommend!!

                Bought in 180 cm (I'm 78 kg) from Evo I fitted with inserts to mount Griffons or Dynafits so can ski on and off fields. Back in July had a dump on my local club field which has a nutcracker rope tow. First days of season usually run out of gas at 10-15 runs I did 25 on these rocketships and went back for another 25 the next day....they made it easy and fun fun fun...blasting down the open faces and slalomimg through chutes with ease...amazing off-piste and carve really well on-piste too.

                I demo'd these skis during a three day dump at Mammoth Mountain. My normal skis are a pair of Blizzard Bonafides and the Soul 7 blew them away. The Soul 7 turns on a dime in powder or the groomers. We caught a two foot fresh powder day at Mammoth and these skis never faltered. From the top of the mountain in two feet of powder to the base where it was a foot and a half of cut up crud to the groomers on the way back to the lift. This was the ski to have. Can't wait for next season to see how Rossignol improves them.

                Comments about Rossignol Soul 7 Skis 2015:

                These skis are magical, I purchased them before this last ski season. I had been riding on the K2 Apaches the past several seasons, but the skis were nearly ten years old so I finally decided to treat myself to a new pair. My Apaches were pretty old school style skis compared to a lot of the new skis being produced today, and these Soul 7's blow them out of the water with their performance. First off, the Soul 7's are some of the lightest full size skis on the market, they feature this "honeycomb" technology at the tips of the skis which essentially give the skis support in the right spots to keep them strong, while reducing unnecessary weight to allow the rider to make sharper turns easier.

                At 21 years old, I have been skiing for nearly 15 years now, but I personally never developed into much of a trick skier; I'll fly through the park and go off the biggest jumps, but I am not trying to do much spinning or any flipping. I do consider myself at least an intermediate level skier (being modest), and do believe these skis are not necessarily for new skiers, they may be a bit too fast. The Soul 7 skis are a good fit for the all-mountain skier, they can handle any terrain; you can take them up on hard packed days and bomb the slopes, as well as float right on top of the fluff after a fresh powder fall.

                The main difference I have noticed while riding these Soul 7s compared to my Apaches is the ease of which they ride. I used to get a lot of chatter speeding downhill on my Apaches and the Soul 7s are so smooth at even my highest speeds. Also the turning just feels easier and smoother, which keeps my legs fresh longer and allows me to get some extra runs in each day.

                These skis have been getting great reviews at every ski website you can find online, and after riding them for one season I understand why. The Soul 7s are a next generation ski and I recommend demo-ing them the next time you head up to the mountain, they won't disappoint you.

                    Took these to Silverton this winter for a long weekend and they were perfect in all conditions. We had powder, corn, avalanche debris, trees and more. These were ideal in all conditions with ample rocker to provide good float and good edges for confident turns. If you're looking for a great all around ski that will work well in the backcountry, I strongly recommend these skis.

                    I got the Soul 7 with a pair of Marker Dukes thinking the Soul 7 could be the perfect 'one-ski quiver'. This setting is exceptionally light; the honeycomb also takes away any leverage so it is very easy to maneuver. Great floatation, amazing response. Quick in trees and in bumps. Really in their element during those big dumps. Amazing performer in corn snow as well! I got the 188cm and it is great. I am 205 lbs and I was afraid it would be a bit nimble but it is not. This ski is amazing. That being said, the Soul 7 performs awfully in groomers; it is just to soft; reminds me a bit of the pocket rocket. But this is not a ski made for carving, and if you have to ask how they perform on groomed terrain, then this is not the ski you are looking for.

                      I skied my buddy's Super 7's and I like these much better. Slightly narrower underfoot. This is more of an all around ski that is great in Wasatch backcountry powder.

                        These skis were not stable or nimble under my 160lbs on any terrain, in any snow depth, or at any speed. The flimsy corrugated tips & tails flap around like cardboard on hardpack, and fold in the crud or on backseat landings. Aside from Rossi's advertising dollars, I have no idea why magazine testers keep recommending these to anyone: it's currently fashionable to say that flat tails are the "fix" to the high-rise tail rockered design of the S7, but given how flimsy this ski is, all a flat tail does is get in the way of pivoting in deep snow. Big guys should be looking at Gotamas & the Cochise in this waist width. Powder newbies should look at something fatter with more tail rocker. Everyone else? Give it a miss, it's mediocre in soft snow, and worse everywhere else.
