Salomon BBR Sunlite Skis - Women's - 2012/2013 - $359.83

Take the women's Salomon BBR Sunlite skis for a spin and enjoy the smooth transition from groomed runs to off-piste terrain. The Salomon BBR Sunlite skis work well if you're sticking to the groomed runs, but they are ideal if you find yourself switching between groomed runs and off-piste terrain. Instead of the traditional parabolic or X-shaped profile found in most modern skis, the BBR uses a V-shaped profile to achieve a great balance between flotation and carving. Tips are wider than the tails by at least 32mm, creating a progressive sidecut that initiates and exits turns with ease. Tips are also shaped to reduce weight and minimize chatter when carving at high speeds. Wide, surfboard-inspired tips feature a very low profile rise that floats in powder and smooths out the ride in rough terrain. The narrowest part of waist is behind heels, allowing a versatile weight distribution on skis. Pintail releases out of turns easily and enhances control. Light density composite core offers enough power to dig into the turn, yet offers substantial weight savings over other ways to make a ski. Bamboo fibers in the topsheet add natural flex and pop. Elastomer inserts placed over the front of the skis absorb vibrations, resulting in a smooth ride that softens ski-to-snow contact. Relatively narrow waist offers a tight turning radius and enhances grip on firm snow. Slightly raised tails let you ride backward and stick the occasional switch landing. Semi sandwich increases stability underfoot with lively side-to-side response. Strong polyethylene fiber threaded between the edges of the skis increases edge strength to withstand big impacts. Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo. - $359.83
