Totally new design in sidecut and shape technology, the Salomon BBR 8.9 Skis have an oversized, surfboard shaped tip for floatation in soft snow and terrain absorption, combined with a narrow tail and short radius sidecut for quick, precise carving on piste. Carve precise slalom turns with these ultra quick and short turn radius skis, and take them in some deep stuff for a full-out water ski/pin tail sensation. V-Shape is the future, and it’s here now.
V-Shape is next generation sidecut design with a very wide, rockered surfboard style tip for superior floatation and terrain adaption, combined with a short radius and narrow tail to allow quickness edge to edge and precise carving.
Semi Twin Tip tail increases the snow contact and stability at high speeds.
Sandwich Sidewalls offer extraordinary smooth ski/snow contact and great terrain adaptation. This is a must for powerful skis. Laminated sandwich sidewall construction enables Salomon to combine appropriate material layers for targeted performance.
Oversized PULSEPAD is an anti vibration layer molded all along the front part of the ski to filter vibrations for better absorption and smooth ski/snow contact.
Total Edge Reinforcement has a fiber directly on the edges providing edge stiffness for improved durability and grip.
Full Woodcore from tip to tail offers optimum stability on snow and powerful rebound, which maximizes ski/snow contact and filters vibrations.
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.
