Salomon's versatile XDR range has returned for the 2019 season. This mode, the XDR 79CF is Salomon's intermediate ski for riders who are developing their piste skiing and also want to start experiencing new areas, conditions and terrain.
The 79CF has greater ease of use in comparison to the wider models in the range, so is ideal for intermediate skiers looking for a forgiving yet strong all mountain ski. The 79mm waist enables the user to roll from edge to edge with ease, making it ideal for carving down freshly groomed slopes.
Sidewall construction features underfoot whilst cap construction is present in the tip and tail. This is a great combination for those practising carving as it makes it both grippy at the apex of the turn and prevents the tip and tail from getting too locked into the beginning or end of the arc.
Salomon’s patented carbon flax weave adds torsional rigidity and power without adding weight, whilst the flax fibre dampens vibration and maintains the smooth flex that optimises your ski to snow contact. Whether its fresh corduroy or afternoon crud the XDR continues to be smooth thanks to the rubber elastomer Pulse Pad that absorbs vibration and reduces chatter.
Rocker in the tip and tail makes for easy pivoting, and it increases performance in soft snow and variable terrain. A camber profile underfoot compliments the woodcore to provide power and liveliness for hardpack skiing.
The versatile all mountain Salomon 79 XDR CF is ideal for skiers looking for a ski that will support aggressive skiing but will also be forgiving, predictable and can be used at slow speeds. The medium/stiff flex makes these skis ideal for intermediate/strong intermediates looking for all mountain versatility in a lightweight, forgiving and predictable package.
