The stiff version of the S/Race Skin features the same specifications as the medium version but comes with a firmer camber. This makes the ski more efficient on harder snow and best suited for heavier or stronger skiers. The construction comes very close to the one of the World Cup S/Lab ski.
What are the specifications of the Salomon S/Race Skin Hard cross country ski?
Designed with powerful skiers in mind, this version excels on hard snow or iced snow. Even if the low grip zone is the same as on the Medium version , the longer and stiffer camber feels different. The ski maneuvers very well on compact snow and makes step turning changing tracks easier. It incorporates an ultralight Nomex honeycomb core reinforced with carbon and fibreglass to maximise power and response. The ski is stiffer laterally which helps steering with more efficacy throughout fast turns. The main innovation on this 2018 version comes from the skin system, jointly developed with Pomoca. This 100% mohair Formula Pomoca skin ensures a solid grip and minimises traction through glide phases. The skin zone is very short which means you get a longer contact surface with the Universal G5 World Cup base. This base is extremely versatile and offers an outstanding glide. This ski is a very good compromise for skiers who can’t spend hours on prep. The S/Race Skin Hard is like a World Cup ski accessible for the masses!
