Hi I'm Kevin. I just got off the brand new Salomon X Drive 8.0 FS, which stands for full sidewall. This ski gets 5 out of 5 stars for me. For a frontside, hard packed, all-mountain ski this thing absolutely rips. It's not over bearing or anything like some of the brands over there, it will hold your hand and guide to be a better more confident skier. This thing felt really locked in through short turns, long turns, very stable. The rocker in the tip helped make it easy as the snow quality is staring to deteriorate here in the late afternoon. So just a really good ski that's gonna make you a better skier.

Hi I'm Ryan. I just got off the Salomon X drive 8.0 FS, which is full sidewall. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. It's a great frontside carving ski, it's at home making quick snappy turns and also long drawn out arks. It has a nice amount of pop off the ski, but it's very predicable so it doesn't catch you off guard.

Hi I'm Thom. I just got off the Salomon X Drive 8.0 FS. This is a 5 out of 5 ski. This thing is a lot of fun. It's really gonna be geared towards your frontside carving skier, but it's got tons of pop and tons of energy. It really comes across the fall line aggressively, but it's not out of control. It's still very predictable, you know what it's going to do, but it's does have a nice build of power though the turn that you really want in a carving ski like this. Anybody from a high end intermediate up through an advanced frontside skier is going to be real happy.

Hi I'm Troy. Just got off the Salomon X Drive 80 FS. I'm gonna give this ski a 5 out of 5 stars. This ski really is for that person that likes to make really fast medium sized arching turns. It holds and edge extremely extremely well, you really just gotta roll it over and let it do the work. It's an extremely smooth ski, really no vibration felt even at high speeds on this one. Just a really really fun frontside ski for that advanced intermediate to advanced skier that likes to rip.

Hey this is Jeff, I just finished skiing the Salomon 8.0 FS. I give this ski a 4.5 out of 5. Super fun, really quick from edge to edge, really fantastic edge hold. If you like to make short radius turns, frontside carver this is absolutely a ski for you. Really love this, the faster I went the better it held. It's great for somebody that wants to ski really hard charging, really fast, or a bigger guy. Again I give this a 4.5 out of 5, this is the Salomon 8.0 FS.

Hi I'm Steve. I just got off the Salomon X Drive 80 FS. I give this ski 4.5 out of 5 stars. It really surprised me, it was amazingly solid and stable. All I had to do is really roll it over on edge and it just made beautiful nice medium radius arching turns. It was very stable at speed, it had really nice smooth transition from edge to edge. I really had a lot of fun on it, it was really a great ski.

Hey I'm Mike. I just got done skiing the Salomon X Drive 8.0 FS. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. This ski is for the intermediate all the way up through the advanced level skier. It's very stable, very good at high speed turns. It's got a sheet of metal in it so it's going to be very stable, very stiff, a lot of fun, pretty snappy from turn to turn. Long turns seem to be this skis sweet spot, but it can still handle medium and short radius turns. This would be good for the person that's gonna be primarily skiing the frontside of the mountain, groomers, fresh tracks, things like that. This would be a great ski for all day, can handle just about anything you can throw at it. Again 4 out of 5 for the Salomon X Drive 8.0 FS.
