    Soul skiing's back.

    Most everyone fancies themselves a big-time freerider these days, and while these folks are busy chasing glory, making POV edits, and telling everyone at the bar how rad they are, there are plenty more skiers who are more worried about seeking out soft stashes and secret tree lines. Rossignol's Soul 7 Ski isn't the biggest, burliest, or hard-chargingest ski out there, but it's the perfect tool for skiers who like to ski hard all over the mountain, and are more worried about having fun and skiing well than going Mach 7 and stomping 60 footers.

    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 the 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 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, a race-inspired diagonal fiberglass laminate in the core keeps things stiff enough to charge when you're feeling aggressive.

    Don't Believe The Hype: Pretty, But Weak

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times



    Against the backdrop of how much I liked the original S7 and S3, Rossi's huge hype campaign on how the new 7-series improved on the old design in every way made demoing the Soul 7 the biggest disappointment I've had in 30years+ of testing gear.
    I spent an entire variable-condidtion pow day on the Soul 7 & found it a mediocre intermediate ski that did *nothing* well other than be light. Even under my 160lbs, float in light & medium density snow was lacking. Yes the ski is 10mm narrower than the old S7, but unfortunately what you give up in the pow is not paid back on piste. The vaunted, new, flatter, & squarer tail shape on the Soul 7 provided no discernible advantage on hard snow, however it made the ski much less maneuverable in tight & deep conditions than its wider predecessor.
    Hard snow performance was truly abysmal: the tips flattered like rag-dolls at speeds over 25mph on tracked up, glazed rides back to the lift. The tips & tails are so soft that it feels like there is no camber to this ski. Quick, edge-to-edge short radius turns were utterly lacking in energy or edge bite. GS turns w/ the Soul 7s skied way out away from body engaged the edges, but were harrowing on a ski this spineless.
    In contrast, on the old S7s or Armada JJs, I had no problem making snappy, carved short turns in the fall line with enough camber to "pop" me into the next turn. W/ a centered, modern stance "fun shapes" like the old S7s, JJs, & Patrons will also carve decent GS turns up till about 40mph, when they start to chatter on icier slopes, but every decent ski in this category is still more stable at 40mph than the Soul 7 was at 20mph.

    Who is this ski for? No idea.
    Low intermediates looking for a ski with more float should opt for more tail rocker for easier turning. Everyone else will be left wishing this ski had more substance.
    Perhaps the wider Super 7 or Squad 7 offer this, but I need a tourable width that will side-hill, so I'm looking elsewhere.

    Great all-around powder ski

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought these as a gift for my brother for his first trip skiing in Utah, and after a few warm-up laps he was completely comfortable on these skis. He's been skiing much narrower carving skis on the east coast for most of his life, but he had no trouble adapting to these skis. They ski short, so I sized up from his usual size, and he found them responsive and snappy. Since he's on the lighter side, they floated through just about everything for him, so I'd say the lighter you are, the more versatile this ski will be for you in deeper powder.

    Best Ski!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This ski is by far my favorite. I'm a huge backcountry guy and have been skiing for 20 years. In my 20 years the are the best sticks I have ever owned. The skis turn incredibly well and float nicely in the powder. If you're looking for an investment that will work in all conditions, these are the skis to use. It's also really fun to see lots of people using the ski on Soul id! https://soulid.me/id/Skiing This further insures you're making a good choice, given many of the pros are riding these.

    lol, these skis are dope and I am seeing more people on Soul id with them too! Funny you mentioned Soul id, I just created an account on their recently and loving it so far. It's such a cool social network, perfect for action sports, I'm checking it like every day. Cheers mate!

    Dominate Trees and Powder

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I just demoed these for the second time yesterday, and was very impressed. My first thoughts upon hitting powder were, "Wow! These skis are so easy to bend!" To give some background my daily driver is a Volkl Mantra in the 177 length, but they are very demanding in powder and tight trees due to their two sheets of metal and long radius. The Soul 7s have an 18M radius in the 188 vs the Mantra's 24M radius in the 177, this makes them extremely agile in powder and tight trees allowing you to surf about.

    The Soul 7 skis VERY short. I sized up to a 188 and found them to be just right. The recommended mount is almost dead center on the ski, kinda a weird feeling at first, but once you get over it not a big deal at all.

    On hard snow the ski is surprisingly agile, I would credit that to the skis prodigious camber. Makes for a very entertaining ski. However, if I knew the day was going to be on the harder side then I would opt for something stiffer *cough cough* my Mantra's. But if I am going to surf glades and powder all day I am opting for the Soul 7.

    Awesome Skis!

      Last season was my first season skiing in 6 years. I clicked into these on that first day back and was blown away by the versatility of these skis. They work amazing in powder and hard pack(Lake Tahoe Last season). Would recommend to anyone wanting to ski the whole mountain in a day

      AWESOME powder ski

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I ski out west where we have had incredible snow fall this season. These skis have been an incredible buy - super fun, easy to turn, float right through it all. I find my quads are less tired with these skis on big powder days and I'm able to pack in a longer day. You can't go wrong with these. Just ordered a pair for my daughter.

      Super fun!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I am about 6'1" 220 and went with the 188s. They are, as mentioned in the title, super fun to ski. They are great all around and handle amazingly well on all conditions. They will not replace a true powder board but will float nicely when you want to play in the deeper stuff and they have great control on packed/groomers. Not a lot of chatter out of these as well, which I thought there might be. Paired them with an Axial 3 120 binding and am very happy with them. Overall, a very fun, lively, light setup and have enjoyed every minute on them.

      All-Mountain Fun

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've been skiing with the Soul 7 for several season now. I ski in Utah and we've had a few interesting seasons lately... Although I have other skis ranging between 88 and 120mm underfoot, the Soul's 106 just hits the sweet-spot and I ski with this ski more than any other I own. It's mostly at ease in softer snow but you'll have no problem carving solid arcs on hardback as well. It is truly an all-mountain ski, very vesatile, for resort and backcountry. It's super light AND it feels extremely solid at the same time. For me, the ease of maneuverability that it offers through various terrain and turn shapes sets it apart from most other skis I've used… Get some!!!

      Rossignol Soul 7, Hakuba 47 TRZ Zone

      Skied the Rossi Soul 7 in Hakuba earlier this year and it's a spectacular ski for powder and particularly in the trees. Floats very well and turn on a dime when you need it. While it shines in untracked powder, it's solid in chundered powder. Fun solid ski for powder days!



      I'm 6'0, 75 kg and had the 180cm.



      It does struggle on cordoroy where it takes a lot of work to hold the edge well - the Volkl Mantra and RTM 84 are better on-piste - but when you've had a day of fresh stuff the Soul 7 kicks!

      Fun, Lively, Not Damp

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      There has been a lot written about the soul 7's, so I' not going to repeat what has already been said numerous times.

      One thong though, of all the words that have ever been used to describe this ski; fun, light, lively, versatile, forgiving, floaty, carvy, sexy, custy. One word has never been used; damp. These are not a ski for really hard conditions and in refrozen chunder, you will need a mouth guard to protect against all of the chatter.

      A note on sizing: Do not be afraid of sizing up, they ski short.

      6"4", 250lbs, advanced skier (former ski patrol)
      Like the Soul 7 in 180. Do you agree?

      I'm 5'11", around 170lbs, advanced skier. I live in the Midwest but I try to take two trips or more if possible out west or anywhere with mountains. I'm questioning sizing 180 or 188, I ski hard and fast typically. I ride a 188 scratch bc, black and orange ones (kinda old but fun to charge on)out west mostly but have skied them all over and a pair of 181 S4 pommiers that I like for hardpack but I feel they ski small at times. I guess I would lean towards the 188 if the rocker has them seem a bit shorter as others have said. These will most likely replace both skis although I'll keep my BCs. Thoughts? Thanks.

      Hey Eric,

      I think the 188 cm is the best choice for you. The Powder Turn Rocker will make the Soul 7s ski a little shorter than their true length and these skis are super versatile and can handle everything from hardpack, crud to powder. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions or if you are interested in a whole new set-up.

      Advanced skier, 5'10, 165 pounds. 180 or 188?? Thanks!

      Hey Kevin,



      Depends on the terrain and snow that you are generally skiing. If you are in more open terrain and deeper snow go with the 188, if you are generally skiing tighter terrain or trees go with the 180. The longer ski will be more stable at speed however the 180's will be quicker on the turn. Let me know if you have other questions.

      Unanswered Question

      Does it seem like the manufacture suggested mount location is too far forward? I demoed a pair of these 188's (I'm 6' & 200#) and there was tons of deep pow, but I felt like I had to lean way back a lot to keep the tips up. I compared them to my Blizzard 9.2's (also 188) and the mounts on my Blizzards are a good 4" lower than the Soul 7. If I decide to mount lower, how far does it take to make a difference?

      164cm or 172cm? I'm 5'5(165 cm) athletic build, between 165 and 170 lbs...intermediate-advanced intermediate level...thanks!!

      thanh,



      I would probably lean you more towards the 164 as is is going to maneuver very quick and not over power you at anytime. With that being said, if you do like making faster bigger style turns, I would lean you more towards the 172cm.



      Chat or Call and speak with one of our gearheads to get you into the proper ski for your skiing style.

      I'm 6' 1", 190 lbs. Intermediate/Advanced Skier in the Pacific Northwest who pretty much wants to ski anywhere but the park. Would you recommend the 180 or 188? Also, how would these compare to the K2 Shredditor 102's? I've been bouncing between the two.

      Best Answer

      At your size, 188 for sure! I'm quite a bit smaller at 5'11", 160 lbs, advanced skier and I would never ever trade it in for the shorter version. It's stupid quick to pivot/turn around, due to its low swing weight (honeycomb tips & overall light weight), its short turning radius and tip/tail rocker.



      Here's a review for the Shredditor and it contains a comparison to the Soul 7:

      Also, you will find three seperate reviews for the Soul 7 on that website.

      I'm 5'10, 190lbs, ski front and back and I prefer quicker controlled fall line turns to hard charging faster turns. Ski in Colorado. 180 or 188?

      Best Answer

      Hey Angelo,



      I would recommend you go with the Soul 7s in a 188 cm. They do not have a huge turning radius and will ski a little shorter than their true length due to the Powder Turn Rocker. Plus you will want the extra surface area for those powder days! Feel free to shoot me any additional questions.



      Kyle

      I'm 5'6" 160lbs aggressive all mountain skier. 172cm or 180cm?

      what's the difference between the 2015 an 2016 models?

      Is this the 2015 or 2016 model?

      I early ski expirence 88 by rossi...

      my height 192cm

      my weight 82kg

      which one is proper size for me, skiing on all types of terrain...

      Definitely the 180 cm maybe even the 188 cm depending on your ski ability. If you are very aggressive then get the 188 cm especially if you like to ski fast. If you take it easy and make a lot of turns then the 180 cm will be the better option.
