Salomon ski snapped on second run

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I just picked up a pair of Salomon x80ti this year and on my second run this year I hit a dip in the trail and a I heard a pop. I though my binding disengaged but it turns out the pop was my ski snapping in half right under the binding. I assume this isn't common. Any chance of a warranty in your opinion? I will try the shop I bought them at when I get back from the trip....

if you bought them new at an authorized shop, you have a very good chance of getting replacement skis(which might be more accurately labelled "good will" rather then the stipulations of the warranty).

 

If that doesn't work, if you bought them with a halfway decent credit card, good chance of a purchase protection claim from the credit card to get money back that way.  But time is usually of the essence as this claim typically has a 60 90 or 120 day window since purchase.

Dip in the trail?  Must have been some dip to snap a ski!

I least I could have been doing something cool or had a sweet fall.

I'm wondering if they broke at the point where the bindings were drilled?

I once bent a less than year old ski when I had a fall at about 3 mph due to brushing against a cut bank on a cat road in heavy fog. The ski shop sent me to the ski rep's warehouse, who didn't warrant the ski but sold me a single replacement at wholesale cost.

 

My almost new pair then lasted an amazing 10 years.

But then you can't genuinely use the hoary old cliche "I was just skiing along when..."

Well at least they weren't Dynastars.  Good luck getting them to stand behind their product.

Wow, I've done some pretty weird stuff on skis to where I thought they would snap but they never have. That has to be from a defect.

I dropped it off at the shop today and they are going to send it out to Salomon tomorrow. Hopefully things work out.
