If you've been away from the sport for years or are just getting into it for the first time, the BBR Skylite skis with bindings welcome you to the slopes with a whole new ski shape.
Slightly softer and more forgiving than the BBR Limelites, the Salomon BBR Skylite skis excel on groomed runs and hold their own when heading off-piste
Instead of the traditional parabolic or X-shaped profile found in most modern skis, the BBRs use a V-shaped profile to achieve a great balance between flotation and carving
Tips are wider than the tails by at least 36mm, creating a progressive sidecut that initiates and exits turns with ease
Tips are also shaped to reduce weight and to minimize chatter when carving at high speeds
Wide, surfboard-inspired tips feature a very low profile rise that floats in powder and smooths out the ride in rough terrain
The narrowest part of waist is behind heels, allowing a versatile weight distribution on skis
Pintail releases out of turns easily and enhances control
Composite foam core damps vibrations to keep the ride smooth, and its responsive nature serves up palpable snow feel and precise control
Monocoque construction uses a single-layer cap design to promote response and maneuverability
Elastomer inserts placed over the front of the skis absorb vibrations, resulting in a smooth ride that softens ski-to-snow contact
Relatively narrow waist offers a tight turning radius and enhances grip on firm snow
Slightly raised tails let you ride backward and stick the occasional switch landing
L9 bindings are light on your feet, letting you ski all day with little fatigue
Lightrak system uses composite materials and titanium to reduce the overall weight of the skis and increase maneuverability
Integrated bindings let skis flex naturally and channel power directly to edges for ultimate feel and control
High elasticity provides excellent shock absorption
Bindings are mounted slightly forward to accommodate a woman's center of gravity
2.5 - 9 DIN range accommodates a wide range of skier abilities
Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
Recommended rider weights are a general guideline. Please keep in mind that additional factors can affect which size will best suit your needs. If you have questions regarding ski and snowboard sizing, please contact us at 1-800-426-4840.
