Rossignol Ski 7 HD W Ski
The Rossignol Sky 7 HD W is the slightly narrower version of the award winning Rossignol Soul 7. So why would you buy the Sky 7 HD instead of the Soul 7. Here's my answer. After skiing on both of theses skis back to back, I'd felt the main difference was that the Sky 7 was just a little bit quicker from edge-to-edge. Put another way, it has a lighter, livelier more energetic feel.The Sky 7 is 98mm under foot compared with 106mm for the Soul 7, so yes the Soul 7 does provide slightly more float in powder and a bit more piercing power in crud. Both the Sky and the Soul have many things in common and this is what I really loved about both of the skis. Both had very positive turn initiation, in other words, just roll them up on edge and the skis really pull in to the turn. They don't leave you waiting for the ski to come around, it happens right now.
The Sky and the Soul 7 have fantastic edge grip on hard snow. Both are very stable at speed. The Soul 7 being a little bit more stable then the Sky.
Overall these two skis where my absolute favorite skis over any other skis I tested last year at all of the preview days.
