Salomon 1080 'Mogul" - Ski Review

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I went though one year of thoroughly putting these skis to the limits of their albility(and mine) with severe bumps and air and have finally come to a honest conclusion. The skis really look good! They do what they are supposed to, very fast fall line ski, easy to set up for jumps and the recovery is stable. However, I never really felt very comfortable on them. I've tried friends Dynastar twister and right off the bat, I felt right at home. I think it might be because they are a tad stiffer then most bump specific skis. I also have a pair of mad trix moguls in the forground that are now 3 seasons old so I don't use them very often. I know, I know,
I know....vanity! but here again, with those skis, everything comes soo easy and COMFORTABLE. Anyway, I'm bound and determined to acclimate to the Salomons even if it takes changing my skiing for them!

Dynastar Twisters

The one thing I coulld say about them is that they seem very light and that in itself is excellent in the bumps because as you know, the bumbs are usually hard pack. They are extremely stable from bump to air to bump and fast doing it. However, The Twisters are notorous for splaying or bending at the tips so be careful when you purchase used twisters. put both skis together with the brakes rubber banded back so they don't make contact with eac hother and see if there is any space at the tip when you squeeze both of them together from the center. The price sounds great. One other thing. try to get as high a 'din' binding as you can. even if you don't set the bindings at their max, The higher din bindings will not pre release (the biggest no no in bump skiing) Good luck and have a great season .

Thinking about a pair of these myself.

Any thoughts about the right length for a 6'1", 38-year-old, 205-pounder? Ordinarily, I'd think about 180, but since I'd be thinking about these as bump day skis, should I think about the 170 instead?
