Who says exceptional ski says specific ski, this version of the S/Lab is intended for warm and transformed snow. Softer than the other spatula versions, it adapts perfectly to end-of-season conditions.
What are the characteristics of the Salomon S/Lab Carbon Skate Red cross-country ski?
Equipped with a grey G5 sole for wet and dirty snow, this model directly announces the color, it is an end-of-season ski for snow that is difficult to ski. The camber is moreover adapted to these conditions with a shorter support zone and softer tips. It is totally made to offer maximum performance in tricky conditions where most skis are spatulaing and have a suction cup effect on snow. In addition, we have specifically chosen the weight range and structures so that the ski will fit the recommended sizes, so it is necessary to refer to the size selection help below. The warm structure evacuates moisture quickly with wider and deeper channels. The gray sole limits fouling over the miles on groomed slopes full of impurities. In terms of the internal structure, of course Salomon has retained its manufacturing principles that work wonders, with a Nomex honeycomb core covered with Thin Ply Carbon construction. A 45° carbon braiding that limits the lateral deformation of the ski when pushing. It therefore remains excellent on compacted snow and will undoubtedly be one of the best alternatives for snow that changes rapidly at the end of the season. A very healthy behaviour underfoot and a remarkable stability for a specific ski but which, it seems, can come out quite frequently.
