Salomon's Isocell wood?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was looking around the salomon website to see that several top-end skis have an ISOCELL WOOD CORE. What's that mean? Are they wood or is this a fancy name for foam core? Others have an ISOCELL COMPLEX CORE ?!

ISOCELL WOOD CORE is a wood core sorrounded by the isocell (which is probably some sort of PU foam).

ISOCELL COMPLEX CORE is simply the isocell filling up the inside of the ski. No wood.

There´s also ISOCELL LIGHT adapted for women´s skis.

Thank you checkracer. If I do choose a Salomon ski, it will have to be wood cored...

The foam is a polymethacrylimide- (PMI-) hard foam, not PU, as in the past.

Thanks Warren!

Has the PU foam been abandoned throughout their lineup?

No. PU is still used in a few of the S-LAB skis, namely, the 1080 CR Lab and 1080 Gun Lab.
