When conditions are a little sloppy but speed isn't optional, pull out the Salomon S Lab Skate Red Ski. A World Cup caliber rocket, the Red is made to give expert skiers and serious racers the boost they need to challenge for the podium, so it's not surprising that it's stiff, powerful, and responsive. The Nomex composite honeycomb core keeps weight to an absolute minimum just barely over two pounds per pair while extra thin wood sidewalls and a carbon fiber laminate give the ski powerful rebound to propel you forward with every kick.Salomon designed the Red expressly for warm, soft, and sloppy snow, which basically means it softened up the flex a little bit and pressed the ski with Salomon's 587 Balanced Camber profile, which reduces the length of glide zones and raises the tip and tail to reduce suction when you're gliding over wet snow. Every ski is also pressed with Digital Dynamic Flex Control to ensure perfectly uniform flex characteristics in every pair. In keeping with it's hard snow orientation, the Yellow features a pre waxed G5 White base that's meant to be fast in sloppy snow, and gave it a World Cup Warm grind that structures the base to perform at top efficiency when the snow is wet, warm, and soft.
