Alpine Ski Salomon X Max X8

The X Max X8 is not new to the skiing game. Many skiers rid it last year and were very pleased with the product. That’s why Salomon brings it back for 2018. It is an alpine ski designed for tearing piste apart and carving across groomers. If the ski comes with a different topsheet, its technical specifications remain unchanged. You get the same rockered tip for smoother turn transitions, you get the same powerful woodcore and the Powerframe Basalt technology that absorbs vibrations without compromising the ski liveliness.  

What can the Salomon X Max X8 piste ski do?  

It can chop through red and black pistes with confidence, it can carve long turns with style, it can help you improve your skiing technique with ease and it will definitely help you enjoy your day on the slopes. These are the X Max X8 missions. We liked the stability of the ski, it feels very comfortable and it inspires confidence. The fact that the X8 features no metallic reinforcements make the ski easier to use than its bigger brothers and more pleasant. Excellent choice if you want to make the most of your day without fatigue.  

Who is the Salomon X Max X8 designed for?  

We recommend the ski to intermediate and advanced skiers who love to carve their turns and work on their line precision without struggling. However, if your technique is very good, you may want to go for a more powerful model like the X10 or X12.

Type of turns

  • Multi-turns

Shape

  • Directional (front tip)  :

    The ski shape allows only a directional use.

Weight of the pair in grams

  • 4114 (169cm)

Structure - Construction

  • Oversized Active Contact sidewalls  :

    Sandwich ABS construction for optimal energy distribution and grip. 

  • Basalt layer  :

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

  • Woodcore  :

    Wood is added into the core to improve on-snow stability and return. It also makes the contact ski/snow smoother and eliminates chatter.

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

  • Carve Rocker  :

    Thanks to the rocker, there's a full running length of the edge, which allows easy and precise turns. Very playful.

Interface

  • X-Track plate  :

    Optimal power transmission

Various

  • Pulse PAD  :

    A layer of rubber along the edges and in certain zones of the ski for smoother ride and improved ski-snow contact.

  • Gentle Rise Tail  :

    Gentle rise of the tail for more forgiveness and more control in all conditions
