The Salomon Q-88 Lux is a great ski for the intermediate to expert skier that needs a lightweight and snappy ski for mostly on trail skiing, with the ability to head off trail sometimes. Made with Salomon's Utility Rocker the Lux is a very well rounded ski. Utility Rocker has a rockered tip for easy turn initiation, and better flotation, camber underfoot for rebound, and a small amount of rocker in the tail for easy turn exit. The Hook Free Taper in the tips and tails increases the maneuverability by moving the contact points slightly further back to prevent them from getting hung up in fresh powder, bumps and crud. The Lux's 88mm waist is incredibly agile for making nice arcs down the mountain, will give you stability in variable conditions, and aid in flotation in the fresh snow. Salomon's Full Wood Core has a very lively and snappy feeling, making the Lux perfect for lightweight aggressive skiers. A Carve Zone placed in the middle of the sidecut will give you plenty of effective edge to gain control on firmer slopes. If you want a ski that looks great, with the ability to head off trail, the Salomon Q-88 Lux will be a great ski for you. [+]
