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
