The Salomon X-Drive 8.3 is a fantastic ski for the intermediate to advanced skier that wants a snappy ski for making short to medium radius turns on the frontside of the mountain. The Light Density Wood Core is reinforced with a Basalt Layer to give you a lively and lightweight ski that will be stable at top speed. The X-Drive 8.3 has the X-Chassis that uses a Carbon/Polyamide structure over the middle of the ski that delivers stronger edge hold, and higher torsional strength that increases the responsiveness of the ski. Salomon's Semi-Sandwich Construction gives you maneuverability and power by having a vertical sidewall underfoot and a Monocoque Cap Construction over the tips and tails. The 8.3 has All-Terrain Rocker 2.0 that has rocker in the tip that allows the ski to initiate turns faster. Camber underfoot provides you with a strong amount of rebound, and a small amount of rocker in the tail releases the ski from turns with less effort. A RKS (Rocker Stabilizer) reinforces the contact points of the ski with composite fiber to increase the precision of the ski, so as soon as it is on edge the ski reacts. If you are looking for a ski that slices short to medium radius turns down the frontside, click into the X-Drive 8.3 from Salomon, you will not be disappointed.
