    Salomon Elite 8 Edge Grip cross-country skis are great for general touring and off-trail exploring. Their partial metal edges and high-performance waxless pattern offer good control.

    • Densolite 2000 cores features preshaped Densolite foam with bidirectional fiberglass wraps to keep the skis light and torsionally stiff
    • Make your way down icy slopes with added control thanks to partial steel edges located toward the front and back of the skis
    • G2 Plus waxless pattern on the bases delivers a combination of excellent grip and glide; sharp grip edges bite into snow when you kick and are smooth and quiet when you glide
    • Camber is tuned for easy compression and good grip when pressing with the forefoot; grip zone remains lifted when pressing with the mid or rear of the foot for good glide
    • Light carving sidecut near the middle of the skis and a wider platform near the front provides good control and stability when descending out of the groomed tracks
    • Quality bases on the Salomon Elite 8 Edge Grip cross-country skis retain wax for good performance on all types of snow

    Recommended skier weights are a general guideline designed for the average skier. When selecting a size, please keep in mind that there could be additional factors that can affect which size would best suit your needs.

    Salomon Elite 8 Edge Grip Cross-Country Skisis rated4.0out of5by3.
    Rated4out of5byfromDo their job wellI bought these skis to replace a pair of Salomon Elite 5 skis, which are basically the same skis but without metal edges. The metal edges may help a little with turning, but they still aren't alpine skis. The skis are good at what they're made for: well groomed trails. Because of their intended use, they're narrow, which makes them longer than comparable touring skis -- meaning they're somewhat flexier and harder to control; for beginners, I'd recommend touring skis. That said, I've successfully taken these skis off groomed trails, but they're definitely not meant for that. Overall, I'm very happy with these skis.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat SkisI bought these skis to replace an older pair of "waxless" skis. After properly waxing and scraping the glide area I have been very pleased with the performance. I have used them numerous times in varying conditions and have found the kick and glide to be very good. I also changed to new pilot bindings and boots. I can't say yet if the metal edges are better than non metal but don't see how it could hurt to have sharp edges for turning.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat ski for varied conditionsGood ski on poorly groomed/skied in track when snow has frozed or glazed. Slow, as most waxless skis are in dry snow. I ski these on skied in trails on steep slopes and the metal edges are very useful for holding on the slope.
