Salomon Shogun 100 Skis - Men's - 2012/2013 - $359.83

The Salomon Shogun 100 are built to handle the unexplored powder that's waiting off the lift as well as the groomed runs used to get you there. Built for days that take you all over the mountain, the Salomon Shogun 100 skis excel on variable terrain, and they'll hold their own on powder days. Full-wood core delivers direct transmission of power with precision and efficiency; designed for demanding skiers who require high performance. Bamboo fibers in the topsheet add natural flex and pop; crushed basalt is added to a fiberglass-like fiber that is placed above the wood core to absorb shock. Perfect for pulling off freeski maneuvers, a single-layer cap design provides precise edge grip and efficient energy transfer from skier to snow. Elastomer inserts placed over the edges absorb vibrations, resulting in a smooth ride that softens ski-to-snow contact. All-terrain rockered tips excel in soft snow and deliver fluid performance on hardpack; when put on edge, 95% of edge length contacts snow to offer precision on groomed runs. Slightly raised tails let you ride backward and stick the occasional switch landing. Strong polyethylene fiber threaded between the edges of the skis increases edge strength to withstand big impacts. In addition to the polyethylene fiber, extra fiber reinforcements laid directly on the edges add torsional rigidity and improves edge durability. Wide metal edges withstand big impacts and improve shock resistance. Salomon Shogun 100 skis require wide brakes. Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo. - $359.83
