This is the most high-end boot in Salomon’s lineup. It took a while before the manufacturer unveiled and released it but it’s now within the reach of any skier out there, in limited quantity. The S/Lab carbon features state of the art technologies to deliver the most incredible performance you’ve ever experienced at skiing.
What are the specifications of the Salomon S/Lab Carbon Skate Prolink ski boot?
The first thing you notice when you have the boots in your hands is their weight. They’re light, incredibly light. This is due to an innovative construction made of 2 parts like on BC models with a distinct shell and liner. The shell is made of a high-end carbon making the boot light and stiff. Only the sides at the widest points are made of a softer material to provide more comfort and allow the boot to flex effortlessly. The cuff is also made of carbon to ensure a solid ankle hold resulting in added stability. The liner is independant from the rest of the boot. You can easily remove it to let it dry if needed. Like the rest, it is super light and will shape around your foot thanks to your body heat. The closure system works like a charm and makes the boot super easy to adjust while the front zipper is simply fantastic and of great quality. You also get a Ratchet system for further adjustments on the instep. It helps avoiding pressure points and keeps the foot in place. We chose to sell the Prolink version as this standard adapts to most other binding standards available on the market, including NNN or the new Turnamic. It is the opportunity for all skiers who own other systems than SNS Pilot to experience a race beast like the S/Lab Carbon Skate.
