The Salomon X-Drive 8.8 FS makes a great ski for the strong intermediate to expert skier looking for a stable and smooth ride to arc medium to long radius turns on the frontside of the mountain. Salomon's X-Chassis Construction has a blend of Carbon/Polyamide diagonal stringers in the middle of the ski that increase the torsional strength for cleaner carves and high speed ripping anywhere on the mountain. A Basalt Layer is added on top of the Light Density Full Wood Core to reduce the total weight of the X-Drive 8.8 without compromising any performance. The 88mm waist will be very agile, and have the ability to crush crud. Salomon uses a RKS (Rocker Stabilizer) that uses 3D Composite Fiber Reinforcement in the contact zones that will eliminate tip wobble, and improve the quickness edge to edge of the ski on a steep groomer. A Honeycomb Tip in the X-Drive 8.8 removes heavier material away from the tip of the ski that will lower the swingweight and make it more maneuverable. Full Length Vertical Sidewalls also beef up the torsional strength, and deliver a powerful edge hold on icy groomers. If you want a ski that will be stable at fast speeds and charge down the frontside of the mountain the Salomon X-Drive 8.8 FS will be a great ski for you.
