Details

Free Binding Mounting: We will mount you ski bindings for free whenever you order skis and bindings. If you order boots, too, we can adjust them so they are ready to hit the slopes right out of the box! Just be sure to fill out the mounting form that comes up after checkout.

Honey Comb Tip: More Float, Less Flop. This ski has a super light honeycomb/Koroyd insert, reinforced with ABS. Less weight at the extremities with increased dampening from Koroyd material which dramatically increases maneuverability and ease of steering on rockered skis.

CFX SuperFiber: This ski has a unique fiber layer consisting of Carbon and Flax woven together, running the full length of the ski. This technology combines the incredible strength and minimal weight of carbon fiber for stability and reinforcement, with an increased level of dampening and vibration absorption above

,p>Salomon Utility Rocker: Salomon's most versatile rocker profile, Utility Rocker's medium tip rise guarantees great float in powder, with excellent terrain absorption, while the low camber under foot gives solid edge grip and rebound. The flat, early rise tail dramatically increases the skis maneuverability in soft snow, while maintaining directional stability for high speed charging.

Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.

Skin Notch: There is a notch in the tail of the ski that helps the clip of climbing skins stay in place. It doesn't change the skiing characteristics of the ski at all, but it is pretty nice to have if you tour in the backcountry.

Semi-Sandwich Construction: cap construction in the tip and tail for reduced swing weight and effortless pivot combined with sandwich construction underfoot for a progressive grip, more control & smoother snow contact.

Oversized Pulse Pad: Anti vibration layer molded into the ski all along the front part of the ski to filter vibrations for better absoption and smooth ski/snow contact.

Hook Free Taper: The widest point in the sidecut tapers in toward the tip earlier for less drag and hooking in powder. Swing weight is also reduced making the ski even more maneuverable in heavy or cruddy snow conditions.

CFX SuperFiber: This ski has a unique fiber layer consisting of Carbon and Flax woven together, running the full length of the ski. This technology combines the incredible strength and minimal weight of carbon fiber for stability and reinforcement, with an increased level of dampening and vibration absorption above

G-Spot Sidecut: Engineered sidecut and rocker shape focusing maximum edge grip directly under foot when in touring mode for easier climbing. Increased edge grip for security on traverses, More efficient stride and glide when climbing, Easier kick turns/climbing transitions.

Salomon MTN Rocker: Climbing efficiency and downhill performance : - Optimal grip zone for skinning - Smooth terrain absorption - Stability and edge grip for downhill.

Spaceframe 2.0: Less swing weight in extremeties with power under foot. Provides power when skinning up and skiing down.

Total Edge Reinforcement: Fiber reinforcement directly on top of edges improves durability, edge grip, and shock resistance. Basically this is an added feature to prolong the life of your ski by preventing any unnecessary damage from occurring.
