The Salomon X-Drive 8.0 makes a great ski for the beginner to mellow intermediate, or the skier that has been renting skis for a while, and is ready to invest in their own set of skis to stop waiting in rental shop lines. The X-Drive 8.0 has the perfect mix of stability and forgiveness by having a composite core that is lightweight and easy to control, and a single Titanium laminate will provide you with stability as you improve your skills, and venture into steeper, more difficult terrain that you have never skied before. Salomon's X-Chassis Construction increases the torsional strength of the ski, and the amount of control you have at faster speeds by having a woven Carbon/Polyamide diagonal structure over the middle of the ski that will increase your stability and edge hold. Salomon's RKS (Rocker Stabilizer) has a composite reinforcement on the contact zones that will give you smoother turn initiation. The 8.0 has a Semi-Sandwich Construction that gives you both a Monocoque Cap in the tips and tails for easy maneuvering, and a vertical sidewall underfoot that delivers edge hold. The All Terrain Rocker 2.0 will allow you to improve quickly by initiating turns easier, and allows the ski to exit them effortlessly. If you are looking for a ski that has great technology for the beginner to learn quickly with, or the intermediate to improve, the Salomon X-Drive 8.0 will make a fine selection. [+]
