Salomon MTN 86 Pro Ski 2024
Ask around in the ski mountaineering community and you'll find that one name keeps coming up. The Salomon MTN 86 Pro skis are one of the most coveted "volcano skis" on the market for good reason. Weighing in at 1230 grams a ski, they definitely fall into the ultralight touring category. These skis were designed for overnight trips, dawn 'til dusk missions, and the kinds of vertical stacking days that will leave your GPS watch out of breath and begging you to sit down for a second. But the reason they've earned such a reputation is that their downhill performance is nearly unparalleled in the category. If you're looking for one of the best uphill skis in the world that won't leave you wanting when it's time to link turns, this is the one of you.
Karuba / Poplar Full Woodcore – A woodcore from tip to tail offers optimum stability on snow and powerful rebound. Maximizes ski-to-snow contact and filters vibrations. Karuba is one of the lightest woods available for ski construction.
Cork Damplifier – Cork is 16 times more absorptive than Koroyd. Using it in the tip and/or tail of the ski enables a high level of vibration absorption and dampening while decreasing weight.
