Delamintation - Salomon XW (2011 model) - D'oh....should have posted here

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all..... So I have a question about delamination.  I've noticed that the tails of both of my skis (2011 Salomon XW enduro) are delaminating.   The pic below is the worst one.  Ok I lied, I have three questions.

 

1) Is is repairable?

2) Assuming it is, what's the best adhesive - (I'd say epoxy, but I wonder if that's too brittle?)

3) is this a common issue with this model. The reason I ask this question is that just by chance, a couple of weeks ago I was in the used gear shop where I get my kids' equipment and I happened to notice skis identical to mine.  I didn't think much of it...until yesterday when I noticed how badly mine are coming apart.  So today I went back to have a look at them. And sure enough they are delaminating as well.   I also have an old, well-used pair of 1998 Axendo Series and they have never shown the slightest sign of delaminating.

 

Thanks.
