  • The Salomon BBR 8.9 skis work well if you're sticking to the groomed runs, but they are ideal if you find yourself switching between groomed runs and off-piste terrain
  • Full-wood core delivers direct transmission of power with precision and efficiency
  • Elastomer inserts placed over the front of the skis absorb vibrations, resulting in a smooth ride that softens ski-to-snow contact
  • Wide, surf-board inspired tips feature a very low profile rise that floats in powder and smooths out the ride in rough terrain
  • Tips are also shaped to reduce weight and minimize chatter when carving at high speeds
  • Relatively narrow waist offers a tight turning radius and enhances grip on firm snow
  • Narrowest part of waist is behind heels, allowing a versatile weight distribution on skis
  • Pintail releases out of turns easily and enhances control
  • Slightly raised tails let you ride backward and stick the occasional switch landing
  • Sandwich sidewall construction offers extremely smooth ski-to-snow contact and high adaptation to any terrain
  • Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
  • Strong polyethylene fiber threaded between the edges of the skis increases edge strength to withstand big impacts
