Alpine Ski Salomon X Drive 8.0 Fs

The X Drive series belongs to Salomon’s All-Mountain Frontside range. The skis are made to deliver incredible on-piste performance while offering off-piste opportunities.
The X Drive 8.0 FS sets the bar high in terms of precision and agility. 

What can the Salomon X-Drive 8.0 FS do?  

With the X Drive 8.0 FS ski comes the Chassis X and PTP technologies. Elastomeric ends on the chassis X provide a stiffer ski with an excellent torsional stiffness and faster and smoother edge to edge transfers.
The 80mm underfoot platform and the honeycomb tip coupled with the rocker 2.0 provide tons of floatability on soft snow and more predictability on crud.

Who is the Salomon X-Drive 8.0 FS designed for?

Like most of the X Drive skis the 8.0 FS is highly versatile and recommended to advanced skiers looking for optimal control on piste and fun and playfulness off piste.
The ski absorbs unexpected terrain changes with an incredible ease and delivers an outstanding fluidity.
Agile, precise and versatile, it is going to be hard to dislike that ski.
All you need is a bit of technique and a touch of creativity for fully enjoying it.

Structure - Construction

  • Sandwich sidewalls  :

    Sandwich sidewalls for extraordinary smooth ski/snow contact and great terrain adaptation. A MUST for Park and Pipe and performance proven in the race Milieu! Laminated sandwich sidewall construction enables to combine appropriate material layers for targeted performance.

  • Basalt layer  :

    Used in building highways throughout the world, a Basalt layer in the ski provides outstanding dampening and vibration resistance.

  • Low density woodcore  :

    The composite core density is lower which makes it 20% lighter without making it weaker.

  • Progressive Transfer Pads  :

    Integrated elastomeric pads on each end of the X Chassis.

    More fluidity through energy transfers toward the edges, better progressive feel and more chatter dampening.  

  • RKS (Stabilisation du Rocker)  :

    Fiber composite reinforcement that allows easy and precise turns 

  • Honeycomb structured tips  :

    Tips are ultralight and offer a better floatability. Less swing weight for added manoeuverability et more control. Better dampening and durability.

Camber type

  • Classic camber  :

    When the ski sits flat on the ground, the tip and the tail are in contact with it while the midsection rises above. It is this section that maximises the energy transmission towards the edge, ideal for piste skiing. It also provides a rebound which enhances energy return and pop.

Technology

  • All-Terrain Rocker 2.0  :

    Absorption of terrain variations

    70% of the ski is in contact with the snow when it sits flat on the ground. 90% of it is in contact with the snow when it is on the edges. 

Rocker type

  • Tip rocker  :

    Skis are more manoeuvrable, contact points on the skis are placed in order to reduce the effective running length, which allows easier pivot and a better float.

Interface

  • X-Track plate  :

    Optimal power transmission

Various

  • Chassis X  :

    Carbon diagonal reinforcement in the medial part of the ski. That increases torsional stiffness, grip and stability.

  • Tip protector  :

    Carbon reinforcement increasing the reactivity and the stiffness in torsion without compromising the weight of the ski.

  • Flat tail  :

    A flat tail design made for powerful and stable turn completion in deep powder.

Ski Binding Salomon M XT 12 C90 Black Green

The binding is lower which provides a more precise feel and an improved contact with the terrain. It is also wider with better lateral transmission. 

The Progressive Transfer pads reduce vibrations and deliver a better ski/snow contact feel. 

Compared to the previous version (Smartrack), the binding is 15% lighter in its Ti version and 5% lighter in its X-track STD version. 

It's easy to mount and doesn't require any tools for adjusting different boot sizes. 

The binding meets skiers' needs.
