Salomon skis without bindings
If when the brand was born it was mainly performing on Giant Slaloms, things have changed. They are still as good at racing, but they’ve extended their know-how and now make skis for all levels and all terrains, using modern technologies and durable materials.
Salomon X-Drive 8.0 FS
With a subtle blend of wood, titanal and carbon inside, the X-Drive 8.0 FS is all about precision and forgiveness. The 80mm waist and the rockered tip make the ski perform easily on any terrain. With it, Salomon gives focus on manoeuverability and recommends the ski to all skiers who need a bit more confidence before charging harder.
The rocker allows smooth transitions and intuitive turn initiations. Turns are easy even at low/moderate speed and skiers will quickly progress. The ski is versatile and stable, it features technologies that reduce vibrations and improve comfort. We could define it as a high performance all-terrain carving ski.
Don’t be intimidated by the Salomon Q-Lab, its 104mm at the waist (in 183cm) and its huge rockered tip. It looks like a beast but doesn’t work like one. You’ll be stunned to see how it works in variable conditions.
The ski excels where you expect it to excel, on deep deep powder. It floats naturally and manoeuvers with ease. But take it on groomers and you will see! Even there the ski behaves and responds with precision, even at high speed.
The ski is playful and it is an ideal match for skiers with an advanced level looking for a new all-terrain vehicle to replace their old SUV.
