Salomon Gun vs Salomon Scarlet

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know if there is any difference in these skis except for cosmetics? The dimension and weights are listed as the same on the Salomon site.

they are all based on the falcon boot shape.

If you are talking about the skis the Scarlets are softer with a more forward mounting point. If you do get the Scarlets I would recommend mounting them well behind the line.

I'm talking the skis. I was looking for my girlfriend & have found tons of 164cm Guns cheap. (My daughter already has some Scarlets that are being mounted today and the shop is fighting my recommendation of moving her mount point 1cm back.....they actually recommended going forward 1 1/2 inches which is insane from the measurements I did.)

It is the same ski. I though the flex and dimentions were the same.

People generally mount on boot center or a little forward on the gun & scarlet

I thought the Gun and PR's already had a forward mount point.

Gun like the Pocket Rockets are great skis. Mount them up the way Salomon say's to. I haven't heard of the Scarlets. I guess I'm getting to old...

Not many people have heard of the Scarlet. It is the female version of the Gun. Salomon has created too many models and done a horrid job explaining the difference between causing mass confusion even in the shops that stock them.

Really? I have 188 Guns and mounted them -2-cm since they have quite the forward mount versus the rest of my quiver. I gave up spinny/flippy park riding a few years ago, so the extra shovel is my preference. They ski great at -2 FWIW.

Gun & Scarlet are the same ski, just different grafx. Mount them -1cm, the factory mark is quite forward.

Last year's model was one black, one gold. My daughter has that model. My girlfriend has last year's Guns. The center mark is identical and from what we can tell the flex is the same.

Rio,
Thanx for the info on the boot center mark being the same on the Scarlet vs Gun. No one could give me info on whether they were different or not. I was originally thinking that maybe they made the Scarlet +1cm more forward than the Gun because it's a women's ski.

My daughter is on the Scarlet's & loves them.
