Salomon Skiing X-Scream Series All Mountain Review

Salomon Skiing X-Scream Series


Description
Delivering a sense of freedom and speed while turning, these skis are an excellent choice for all-mountain skiers.. Shaped-ski technology, deep sidecut and a wide base provide deep snow surface flotation and the ability to carve high speed turns. Composite structure combines titanium and aluminum to provide increased stability and steering precision. Softex™ construction dampens vibration at high speeds to provide smooth contact between ski and snow. Prolink Twin Y + V arms in both tip and tail ensure fluent contact with the snow and responsiveness to forces applied on the ski during a turn. Poplar/beech wood core delivers high power and good ski reponse.

Summary:
The Salomon XScream Skis are magnificent. I first skied the 9's at Jackson Hole about 4 years ago. I was so impressed with them that I purchased a pair of the Series models the next week. I have read reviews that were negative and have spoken with people that didn't like them. The only answer I have to this is that perhaps these folks aren't as good as they think they are. There are far too many big mountain skiers using the Excreme Series and Series Skies for them to warrent some of the low score I see here.

If you're a strong, agressive skier, try them. They eat up the mountain.

I am not the ultimate bump skier. But, I've taken these down double black bump runs in heavy corn at Park City.....Well, I got a good suntan waiting for the rest of the group to get to the bottom of the hill.

Summary:
Sal X- scream series
Great ski....very questionable durability! I've seen more warranty issues with this ski than any other. Torsion forks flying off left and right, stress cracks on the top sheet, complete loss of camber in very few ski days. If only this ski held up as well as it skis!

Summary:
This ski is absolutely the best! I found this ski very responsive in just about every aspect (must pay attention in moguls). They blast through crud, and slice through powder like a hot knife in butter. I found myself skiing at higher speeds than usual because I felt confident that they would hold an edge. I can't say enough about these skis; they have made me a much more confident skier. Now I only have to make adjustments in how I ski when I'm in moguls.

Summary:
Ilove these skis! Very predictable and very true in groomed, powder, chunky monkey, and regular crud. These skis are not phased by the preceding conditions. If you're a really good skier and stay within the sweet spot of these skis, this ski will take you anywhere on the mountain. And I paid $350 for them. Outstanding!
