Rigorously tested by mountaineers around the globe, the Summit 79 ski is light enough for endurance challenges, peak objectives, race training, and multi-thousand foot playdays in the backcountry. With the goal in mind to create a sub-1000g ski that can hold up in any conditions miles into the wilderness the Summit 79 was developed and perfected.
A damp karuba core, and Salomon's signature CFX weave strive for the intersection of crazy-light and super-capable. A Koroyd tip further absorbs vibrations and stabilizes the ski for descents. A carbon and titanal mounting plate provide a bulletproof platform for riders of any size. The 17m turn radius (164 length) means that on steeps and in chutes you have the nimble movement you need, and of course they feature the versatility to ski pow with a lightly rockered shovel. This mountain tool is made to tackle any peak, in any conditions, for as many hours as it takes, on foot or stowed on your pack.
Whatever you encounter out there, this light mountain partner will carry you over and up it with ease. Pair it with a lightweight touring boot and the Salomon MTN Binding for the most bitchin' peak setup in the ski touring world.
