Alpine Ski Salomon X Drive 8.3

Salomon carries over this year its X-Drive 8.3, a versatile all-mountain ski that stays as interesting as fun to ride. This all terrains jewel has a tip rocker really useful to float in deep and to start turn initiation without burning your thighs. It keeps its lighten core to stay handy and its titanium and basalt layers to give it perfect peps and glide comfort. It also has carbon and polyamide reinforcement in X shape insuring a great torsion stiffness to stay stable even on the most technical terrains. 

What can the Salomon X-Drive 8.3 ski do? 

This all-mountain ski signed by Salomon has an incredible versatility. It has a great edge hold on slopes and an impassive stability even at high speed. It won’t be the best slalom ski of the year but that’s not what we are really asking for. It is really good in fresh powder, you will discover the efficiency of its tip rocker and its 83mm waist that make it float effortlessly. 

Who is the Salomon X-Drive 8.3 ski designed for? 

This model will seduce the intermediate to confirmed skiers looking for a great versatile all-mountain ski who want to invest in a single pair of skis to enjoy the winter season as much as possible.

Type of turns

  • Multi-turns


  • Directional (front tip)  :

    The ski shape allows only a directional use.

Weight of the pair in grams

  • 3974g en 176cm

Structure - Construction

  • Laminate titanium layer  :

    Titanium layer delivers power and fast edge-to-edge transfers.

  • Basalt layer  :

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

  • Low density woodcore  :

    The composite core density is lower which makes it 20% lighter without making it weaker.

  • RKS (Stabilisation du Rocker)  :

    Fiber composite reinforcement that allows easy and precise turns 

  • Semi-Sandwich  :

    Combination of ABS sidewalls under the foot with monocoque construction by the tip and the tail for a smoother ski/snow contact, a more forgiving feel and easier turns.

Rocker - Camber

  • All-Terrain Rocker 2.0  :

    Absorption of terrain variations

    70% of the ski is in contact with the snow when it sits flat on the ground. 90% of it is in contact with the snow when it is on the edges. 


  • X-Track plate  :

    Optimal power transmission


  • Chassis X  :

    Carbon diagonal reinforcement in the medial part of the ski. That increases torsional stiffness, grip and stability.

  • Heel protection
  • Tip protector  :

    Carbon reinforcement increasing the reactivity and the stiffness in torsion without compromising the weight of the ski.

Ski Binding Salomon M XT 12 C90 Black Yellow

The binding is lower which provides a more precise feel and an improved contact with the terrain. It is also wider with better lateral transmission. 

The Progressive Transfer pads reduce vibrations and deliver a better ski/snow contact feel. 

Compared to the previous version (Smartrack), the binding is 15% lighter in its Ti version and 5% lighter in its X-track STD version. 

It's easy to mount and doesn't require any tools for adjusting different boot sizes. 

The binding meets skiers' needs.
