BBR 7.9

Salomon BBR 7.9 Review Salomon’s new (some would say revolutionary) ski shape for 2012.  The BBR 7.9 – somewhat uninspiringly named for the width under the bindings in centimetres – is the smaller brother to the bigger BBR 8.9 (to be reviewed here soon), but both share a radically oversized tip apparently inspired by watersports, …

Czar

Salomon Czar Review The Salomon Czar rules the big mountain domain. With 111mm underfoot and a long, long turn radius of nearly 45m, the Czar is most at home blasting though untracked snow on a powder day. Its dimensions and rockered tip give it great flotation, while the more standard camber underfoot aids stability. It …

Quest 105

Salomon Quest 105 review The Salomon Quest 105 sits below its fatter brother, the Quest 115, in Salomon’s Quest line-up.

Rocker 2 92

Salomon Rocker 2 92 Review The Salomon Rocker 2 92 is the smaller brother of the Rocker 108 (reviewed here). The 92 (so called because, erm,  it’s 91mm underfoot, at least at the 171cm length) is more of an all-mountain offering than its big sibling, happy to take on pistes, park and powder, and everything …

Shogun 100

Salomon Shogun 100 Review   The Salmon Shogun 100 is yet another ski that is located in the burgeoning “‘mid-fat, all-mountain, one-quiver ski” market. Despite its name, not one of the models actually has an underfoot width of 100mm, but at 97, 99, 101 and 103mm across the range, it’s near enough for us not …
