Salomon BBR 8.0 Skis 2013

Salomon BBR 8.0 Skis 2013: Salomon is shaping the future with the Salomon BBR 8.0 Skis. With the revolutionary V-Shape, the classic X shape concept has been thrown out. The V-shape gives it a more progressive sidecut enabling an easier turn, more rhythm and easy exit from turns. Characterized by a surfboard shape, the BBR 8.0 Skis give the overall result of a versatile performance ski that needs no experience to make your own.
Shape
The V-Shape is characterized by a surfboard shaped tip, a narrow waist and pintail, resulting in versatile performance. The optimized tip and tail ensure great flotation in powder, and amazing on-piste carving while reducing weight. The Patented V-Shape has a tip that is wider than the tail by at least 32mm
Construction
Semi-Sandwich Sidewalls makes the ski more lively with increased stability underfoot
Full Woodcore offers optimum stability on snow and powerful rebounding
Bamboo Layer is light and strong
Additional Features
Total Edge Reinforcement stiffens up the edges for improved durability and grip
Oversized Pulsepad’s absorb shock and anti-vibration for smoother and softer ski to snow contact
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • Turning Radius: Short
    Short
    < 16 m radius is best for carving.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
