Technical info:
Squad 7 is Super 7´s big brother. Apart from the tip, these skis are significantly stiffer. They have less taper and a longer setback, which makes for quite a difference in width between the front and back. The camber is relatively high. The tips are interesting, perhaps someone at Rossignol thought of the possibility of customizing the skis to the desired length. Yes, you can actually cut off the tip a couple of centimeters (red marking), brush the surface with sandpaper and you´ll get a more normally balanced ski with a lower tip. In this case, be sure to buy a little longer skis. This also applies to the Super 7.

On snow:
The Squad 7 is built for speed. Compared with the Super 7, there is a greater width difference between the front and back ski. It´s a lot stiffer than its little brother, especially in the back ski. This may make the skis seem less maneuverable in tight spots, such as in the woods, but all the more effective off-piste. Best suited for high speed skiing off-piste. It sacrifices some of the playfulness for the sake of stability.
