Technical info:
Rossignol first launched its 7 series five years ago. There have been some small modifications since then, but the models are still easily recognizable. Super 7 HD is an evenly soft and relatively light fibreglass construction with some carbon fibre. Two design elements clearly stand out: The high camber under the foot (15mR/8mm!) and a very high front tip (almost 10 cm).

On snow:
Rossignol sticks to its signature elements. This ski stands out for its steep and big tip. This means that it floats well (the tip gives buoyancy), but it can slow you down at high speed. Rossignol is not among the most maneuverable or the most stable brands. The sidecut in the front and back ski is fairly abrupt, and this is probably why it feels shaky at high speed. It scores most points in powder at low and moderate speed, although other skis in this test are better at this.
