As we discovered from television everything is better in High Definition and Rossignol's Super 7 HD skis are no exception.

The 7 series has been a firm favourite for a number of years with both testers and the buying public, but this season Rossignol has pulled off the trick of making already very good skis even better.

The French company has added a blend of carbon fibre and basalt fibre - dubbed the Carbon Alloy Matrix - into the construction mix and the result in the Super 7 HD is sensational.

The extra energy, strength and vibration-damping can be felt the minute you push off and that extra 'oomph' saw grins breaking out all over during our test week in the Austrian resort of Kuhtai, not to mention a few squabbles over whose turn it was for the Super 7s.

The lightweight paulownia core, tip and tail rocker, and distinctive honeycomb Air Tip technology combine for maximum float and nimble turns that belie the 116mm underfoot width.

But lurking underneath is the new backbone of that Carbon Alloy Matrix that raises the performance level another couple of notches.

You'll take these into the powder, float and steer early through the run, jump out of your bindings at the end and shout with glee.

Lives up to its name, a simply super ski.
