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 a race ski to meet the needs of as many people as possible. The Red stands out because of its design that is adapted to wet and/or dirty snow.
What are the characteristics of the Salomon S-Lab Skate Red cross-country ski?
With a higher camber and a shortened drag section in order to limit friction on dirty snow, the S-Lab Skate Red is an end of season ski that can also be used for trips after midday when the snow transforms. Whether it is the camber or the geometry of the skis, everything has been thought out so as to avoid the suction effect that is caused by wet snow. It is perfectly at ease when the snow starts to create the effect of a suction cup under the skis. When it comes to skating, the feeling that it brings in the conditions that it is designed for are truly remarkable and you can clearly feel a significant acceleration where less specialist skills would be completely stuck.
Who is the Salomon S-Lab Skate Red cross-country ski for?
Regular skiers and competitors you will understand that a ski such as this is necessary for the warmer conditions. Furthermore, it is important to emphasis that this is a ski that is well suited to middle altitude areas of the mountain, where the snows change quickly and the temperatures can shoot up by the end of the morning. For competitors, it is also useful to note that the white base gets dirty far less quickly than a black base. In addition to the temperature and the quality of the snow, it is essential to monitor the cleanliness of the snow’s surface, as the dirt build up on the base can quickly make you lose your glide.
