Salomon BBR 8.9 Skis 2012

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!
Rocker Type
Tip Rocker / Camber
Shape
V-Shape
Wide, surf-board inspired tips feature a very low profile rise that floats in powder and smooths out the ride in rough terrain
Pintail releases out of turns easily and enhances control
Relatively narrow waist offers a tight turning radius and enhances grip on firm snow
Core
Full Wood Core - Delivers direct transmission of power with precision and efficiency
Sidewalls
Sandwich Sidewalls - Offer extremely smooth ski-to-snow contact and high adaptation to any terrain
Edges
Total edge reinforcement
Strong polyethylene fiber threaded between the edges of the ski increases edge strength to withstand big impacts
Additional Features
Elastomer inserts placed over the front of the skis absorb vibrations, resulting in a smooth ride that softens ski-to-snow contact

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

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: Partial Twin Tip
    Partial Twin Tip
    Partial twin tip skis have a tail that is turned up, but not as much as the tip. This gives you the ability to ski backwards and back out of tight spaces, but these skis are mainly designed to ski forward.
