The new Squad 7s are solid but forgiving,
says Grizzly Outfitters’ Andrew Schreiner.
Compared to its predecessor, the Super 7,
this ski has a lower-profile tail and shovel,
and a larger turn radius. “It turns as easy
as anything if you’re on the front of your
boot, but if you want to go fast, you’re not
fighting to make a big turn.” At 5.3 pounds
each, they’re relatively light (read: easy
on the knees), and the re-designed tip improves
performance in the chop, Schreiner
said. Available in 188 cm. – E.S.
