Derived from the multipurpose version, the Red is the version designed for warmer and dirty snow, the minim Zeolite G5 base reduces the dirt build up and helps to maintain the glide despite the dirt in the snow.
What are the characteristics of the Salomon Carbon Skate Lab Red cross-country ski?
This ski has a higher and shorter camber than the multipurpose range so that it is able to adapt to the demands of warmer sluggish snow where it is best to reduce friction. With skating ability that is more adapted to wet snow, the Carbon Skate Lab Red is a distinctive but very useful ski when the snow transforms. The reactivity of the ski remains intact thanks to the coating of carbon around the Nomex core, which perfectly restores the force of the thrust. When it comes to the glide, if you stay in its ideal area, you will be nothing but stunned by its performance. It is just as exceptional as the Carbon Skate Lab; this version is simply designed for other conditions.
Who is the Salomon Carbon Skate Lab Red cross-country ski for?
Skiing athletes, regular skiers and competitors, a pair of skis like the Carbon Skate Lab Red are a must-have for your collection. Those who ski after midday will also find that it is particularly advantageous to go out on this type of ski with a minim base and a camber that has been adapted to dirtied snow. Furthermore, and this must be stressed, a ski that is so light and so well balanced will be a real delight to use on wet, thick snow that tends to cover the ski and submerge the tip. If you are looking for a versatile pair of skis, don’t look any further than this ski.
