Advanced+ piste skier
Heyman's rating of this ski:
Considering his skiers profile:
"In both short and long turns a good piste ski is stiff enough to remain stable at max speed and flexible enough to handle bumps and loose snow when circumstances get worse. I like them playful as I consider the whole piste a big playground."
My favourite piste skis:
1. Stöckli Laser SX
2. Fischer Progressor 900
3. Head i.Supershape Speed
To all my reviews
Bounce, bounce, bounce!
The Salomon X-Pro Ti has such a huge amount of rebound, it feels like you're on a trampoline. When you initiate your turn, try to get as low and horizontal as possible. Keep pushing, throw in even more power, more, more... Then suddenly release and get catapulted away. Land, immediately get into the next turn and do it all over again. In rapid succession, faster, faster, a new turn every few seconds until your upper legs burn like hell. If that's your thing, the way you want to ski all day, the Salomon X-Pro Ti definitely is the ski for you.
Playful is its middle name
The X-Pro Ti is so playfull, it's like you're strapped to an elastic cord. The cord lets you go and go and stretch it further and further and suddenly it pulls you back with such force, the skis feel like they've become little rockets. Just like real slalom skis, but without the punishing if you make a little mistake. Not as precise either, but accessible to a wide range of skiers, even skiers without great technical skills.
Salomon about the X-Pro Ti
"A stable and precise on piste ski that takes less effort than a race ski.", says Salomon. I absolutely agree.
