Product Info

Snow conditions are always changing, so you need some skis that will tackle them all. The Salomon BBR 8.9 Skis have wide, surf-like tips that were made to float over pow but are also shaped to reduce pesky chatter that happens when you speed down groomers. The narrow waist is made to allow for tight turns and grippiness on firm snow, so you can keep up your speed and quickly avoid any hard-to-see obstacles. The polyethylene fiber edge reinforcement is made to withstand a few good beatings, so no need to be gentle, shred your heart out!

    Comments about Salomon BBR 8.9 Skis 2012:

    By mounting Head RailFlex bindings I'm able to find the sweet spot of the ski, which for me, was 2.5cm behind the ski's center mark! The ski was ok at the center mark but when I shift back it becomes almost the perfect ski. Fast, stable, carves even on ice, and makes most out of the pateneted V-side cut!!
