Salomon X-Race with N Z12 Speed Binding

Salomon X-Race with N Z12 Speed Binding 5 5 1 1
This product has race-ski performance, yet versatile and forgiving. I bought this ski in 165cm, which is basically a slalom ski (non FIS) and has good edge grip on hard packed snow and quick edge-to-edge responses when pushed hard. Yet, this ski was versatile and easy to turn in various snow conditions from icy to spring-like snow, thanks to carve rocker and wider body than pure racing skis. Despite its slalom-type profile, it performed well not only in short-/medium-radius turns but also long-radius turns, and gave me relatively good floatation in un-groomed snow. I was also impressed by its controllability; i.e. good in carving turns and easy to control how much skidding the skis, too. This ski is made of high quality material such as double Ti laminates which gives this ski strong performance. My only complaint is this ski is a bit heavy when carrying, but it is compensated by its good performance on snow. Overall, this ski was what I was looking for and I can recommend this to those who are looking for race performance with versatility. 17 February 2014
