Does anyone know anything about these?
Are they usually rental skis or something?
First post, BTW!
Well I am looking to get these too and I completely agree with you... they are invisible and don't seem to exist!
But after some extensive research I found some things that helped me, that may help you too.
Made in France
UHMW Graphite Base - running base designed to maximize gliding ability.
Isocell Complex Core - dampens vibrations to keep the ride smooth while still being reactive for better snow feel and control.
Spaceframe Technology - allows specific tuning along ski for excellent steering precision, increased edge grip and great power and acceleration.
Smartrak Control - ski/binding interface enhances ski flex toward tip and tail for smooth, responsive initiation into, and control throughout, the turn.
Composite Monocoque Simple Wall - offers good edge grip and liveliness and is more forgiving than Double-Wall construction.
Tolerance, convenience & reliability, reach the next level.
Norms: Adult Norms
Pedal: SCP (Salomon Control Pedal)
Pivot: Vertical Progressive Pivot - A controlled release for backward falls. Protection and confidence to gain speed and fun.
Wing adjustment: Automatic Wing Adjustment - No handling but automatic adjustment just by step-in. You can forget, but nevertheless, trust your binding.
Brake: Removable Brake - Just one screwdriver turn to take out the brake and make ski maintenance.
RECOMMENDED WEIGHT RANGE: 79-253 lbs.
Before purchasing them I do have a couple questions though…
Have you skied them yet? Do you like them? How do they handle crud, powder, ice? Etc…
