Salomon X-Drive 8.0 FS Skis with XT 12 Bindings 2016

The Salomon X-Drive 8.0 FS makes a great performance ski for the intermediate and a great value ski for the expert. Full Sandwich Sidewalls deliver powerful edge hold, while the Light Density Full Wood Core and a layer of Basalt make the 8.0 FS very stable when you are flying down groomers at full speed. Salomon's Honeycomb Tip removes heavier material away from the tips of the skis to lower the swingweight, to make it easier to maneuver, and less fatiguing. The X-Drive 8.0 FS has a RKS (Rocker Stabilizer) that has 3D Composite Fiber over the contact zones that increase your precision on the slopes, especially when you are making really tight carves. Salomon's X Chassis Construction has a Carbon/Polyamide Diagonal Structure on the middle of the ski to increase torsional strength and edge grip to make the 8.0 FS highly responsive. All Terrain Rocker 2.0 has tip rocker to initiate turns very quickly, camber underfoot for impressive rebound, and a small amount of rocker in the tail to release you from turns effortlessly. If you are a strong intermediate looking for an on trail carving ski to help you get to that next level, or an expert looking for precision the Salomon X-Drive 8.0 FS is a great value, and loaded with technology!
