Technical info:
The S7 is back in a moderate version, say hello to Squad 7. The tips are as much as 3 centimeters lower than before, and the angle is much more acute (from 45 to 23 degrees). However, they have kept the long setback that gives such a difference in width between the tip and tail. The camber is much higher, especially at the waist. Despite the "Weight Reduction System", these skis are not particularly light (1.05 g/cm).

On snow:
It seems as if the Squad 7 is an upgraded and more versatile version of the old S7. The test team agrees that these skis float really well. They are easy to maneuver, but not that stable when the speed gets higher and the conditions more challenging. In firmer, more variable snow conditions, the back skis have a tendency to grab hold and take control. Neither was the test team entirely convinced of the edge grip. Rossignols new freeride model is nevertheless a reliable floater with a large tip, that seems stable in most snow conditions.
