Product Info

Salomon Twenty Twelve Skis 2012: Salomon is known for producing game-changing equipment for breakthrough performances. The Salomon Twenty Twelve Skis are super playful all-mountain skis with long, low twin rocker for amazingly easy pivoting but real stability and terrain versatility. Take them in the park, take them on the steeps, take them in the trees, the Twenty Twelve will go anywhere and jib off of anything.

Product Details

Shape

Twin Rocker shape has a rocker in the tip and tail with a 40% pressure zone when flat that smoothly transitions to an 80% pressure zone when on edge to retain a long contact zone for stable all-mountain skiing. This is super playful and maneuverable for easy spinning and pivoting without catching an edge.

Construction

Sandwich Sidewalls offer extraordinary smooth ski/snow contact and great terrain adaptation. This is a must for park and pipe. Laminated sandwich sidewall construction enables Salomon to combine appropriate material layers for targeted performance.

PULSE PAD is a layer of rubber along the edges and in certain zones of the ski for a smoother ride and improved ski-snow contact.

Wide Edges are thicker for increased durability and improved shock resistance.

Total Edge Reinforcement has a fiber directly on the edges providing edge stiffness for improved durability and grip.

Flex

Full Woodcore from tip to tail offers optimum stability on snow and powerful rebound, which maximizes ski/snow contact and filters vibrations.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

These are amazing all around skis for park,pow,etc. The ski tracks app (iPhone) clocked me at a max speed of around 100 km/h with these skis. At these speeds the skis stated to chatter quite a bit, but I was impressed as these aren't racing skis! Extremely fun, easy to carve, great for park! They are thick enough to keep you stable and easily a-float on pow, but skinny enough to be really fun on the groomers as well! The only thing I don't like about them is the top of the ski (sticker) got a big chip taken out of it from a very minor rock hit. It also seems to peel off around the edges of the ski. While this isn't a big deal, it a little annoying! Nonetheless, these are awesome skis and the scratches just make them look more rad :)!

I skied these skis for two seasons as i began my transition more away from park and more into the woods and off piste. Granted I live on the Ice-Coast, so soft conditions have to be hunted for. These skis definitely handled hard pack and icy conditions just fine and I did not lose any confidence in these types of conditions. They do ok in the powder, their floatability isn't great but at 91 under foot that is understandable. I found my self working decently hard at slow-medium speed in powder to keep them up which wasn't always fun. The floatability and the durability are the reason I gave this 3 stars. These skis only lasted 2 seasons before one ski got bent pretty bad. I am definitely an aggressive skier and enjoy cliff drops but I did not expect it to be this easy to bend the ski especially being a wood core ski. Also the paint chips and scratches very easy so be weary of that. Over all good ski but not a "Great" ski.

The Funnest Ski You Will Ever Ride On!

By 

from Stevens Pass

Comments about Salomon Twenty Twelve Skis 2012:

Really good all around ski to ski pow and park. Gives you a lot of pop so it is very playful. It's a rockered ski so it is a lot of fun. If you are looking for one ski that will do it all the TwentyTwelve is the best choice.

      Wanna Have Some Fun?

      By 

      from Stevens Pass

      Comments about Salomon Twenty Twelve Skis 2012:

      I really liked this ski. It took very little time to adjust to the longer swing distance of the tail and the really quick (as in don't try too hard) turn initiation. Soft stuff, a little hard, a little fresh, a bit of bumps-fun, fun, fun! Not for really hard packed, but tolerable. Good enough for a one-ski quiver and more playful than the Shogun.

      Great ski, slightly tiring in bumps

        Best Uses

          Comments about Salomon Twenty Twelve Skis 2012:

          A great all-mountain ski. Handles powder fine, easily busts through crud, swings around relatively easily, and is an excellent high-speed carver. Very solid and trustworthy on ice and hard-pack. The only slight weakness is in tight bumps, where it gets a bit tiring. My last all-mountain ski was a Salomon Thruster (2007) and it was quicker in bumps but FAR less stable in high speed carving and ice.

          Comments about Salomon Twenty Twelve Skis 2012:

          These skis are awesome, wicked fast, great floatation on powder, and they shred in the park. I use them as a one quiver ski, and they are good on ice as well. However they can get pretty squarely at high speeds on groomed runs.

                    Great improvement from my 7 year old skis. Fun and playful, but still good getting through the WA crud. Only downside is they won't float as much as true powder skis, but I'm more of an all-mountain skier anyways.
