Salomon X-Drive 8.8 FS Skis - Men's



Show Description

Charge the groomers or float on through the soft stuff with minimal weight underfoot. Salomon’s light density poplar wood core is 15% lighter than a full wood core and its honeycomb tip design ensures less drag for better lift and steering. A basalt fiber layer runs the length of the ski, providing impressive dampening for a smooth ride. Reinforced with a carbon-polyamide middle and 3D composite fiber in rocker contact zones, these sticks encourage you to really rip, frontside or backside.
