Salomon X-Wing 8 + 711
Released January, 2009
The Pros:Light weight build, won't weight you down on the lift. Offer a smooth and comfortable ride. Easy gliding over small bumps and over the crud.
The Cons:Poor response for carving, need to force them hard. Difficult to handle in general for beginner or intermediate skiers. Despite light weight, ski is oversized and bulky.
