A series deriving from the Carbon S-Lab world cup skis, this range is one of the most expensive on the one hand, but on the other offers one of the smoothest cambers, with less pronounced characteristics so as to adapt the race ski to meet the needs of as many people as possible. The Blue sets itself apart due to its design that has been adapted for use on cold and dry snow.
What are the characteristics of the Salomon S-Lab Skate Blue cross-country ski?
With its long and level camber, its ability to glide is closely associated with cold and dry snow conditions. The gliding area is longer in order to create a more substantial film of water between the snow and the ski to help gliding on the crisp snow at the beginning of the season. As regards the performance, the standards of the brand continue to shine through with a very satisfactory skate movement as well as a firm grip on the lateral thrust thanks to the Nomex core which preserves the very important lateral turn structure whilst still maintaining the smoothness needed to adapt to the snow conditions it is designed for.
Who is the Salomon S-Lab Skate Blue ski designed for?
Experienced skiers and competitors, you will not be able to ignore the convenience of having a pair of skis with a cold base at the beginning of the season. Like all skis adapted to particular conditions, the S-Lab Skate Blue is not designed to be used by the majority but by those who will use it to expand their collection and not find themselves “stuck” in cold and dry snow conditions. It must be noted that its appreciation for the grain of the snow is equally important, as even though it is made for cold snow, it is also made for dry snow therefore in lower humidity rates a pair of skis such as these will truly excel.
