Rossignol brings HD—a carbon and basalt fabric—into the women’s line. It adds edginess to the now-classic Soul 7, which has been prized for its smeary play- fulness in pow. Testers were divided on the update, with some complaining it added too much bite, making it rather unwieldy. Others proclaimed it the perfect one-ski quiver, capable of carving when the pressure’s high. “Does everything without being overly demanding,” said Lovell.

Strengths: Stability at Speed, Flotation
