Wide enough to float the lightest fluff? Check. Smooth and confidence inspiring at speed? Boom. Light enough to clock big vertical as a touring ski? Kapow. What was that nonsense about having to pick two out of three? The Salomon MTN Lab Skis are the widest entry in Salomon s new MTN series, and though theyre designed as a touring ski they could easily fill the single ski quiver slot for many soft snow addicts. Salomon s new CFX techonolgy - a strip of woven carbon and flax fiber laid over a carefully selected poplar wood core - is key to delivering the exceptional stability and dampness in this quite light ski. If touring for first tracks is your thing, Salomon has the inside track to the ski you need. Check this one out for sure.
Rocker Type: Utility Rocker – Long and gradual rocker in the tip, camber underfoot, and a very slight amount of rocker at the tail. Carve Zone – The traditionally cambered section of twin rocker skis, where the sidecut is focused for more power, energy and edge grip.
Shape: Hook Free Tip Taper – Smooth tip taper combined with five point shape enhances directional stability in fresh snow without diminishing floatation or ease of turning. Tail Taper – Sharp tail taper lets you slide the tails when necessary while maintaining stability for drops. G-Spot – Coordinated sidecut and rocker profiles focus edgehold directly underfoot for better hold while skiing and improved grip while skinning.
Core: Poplar Core
Laminates: CFX Superfiber – A strip of woven 60% carbon fiber and 40% flax is laid over the top of the core during construction, adding both strength and smoothness. Tech Transfer Pad – Titanal reinforcement in the binding mount area for touring bindings. Honeycomb Tip – Lightens the ski at the tip for improved swing weight.
Sidewalls: Full Sandwich Sidewalls – Vertical ABS sidewall construction delivers superior edgehold on harder snow.
Additional Features: Tail Clip Notch for Skins. Glossy Topsheet
Binding Compatibility:We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
