Hey this is Jeff, I just got off the Salomon X Drive 8.0. This is a $499 system ski and for your bang for your buck, I think this is probably one of the best out there. I give it a 5 out of 5 for an upper intermediate to recreational advanced skier. Somebody that wants to get better, somebody who wants a lot of ski for not a lot of money, this is a fantastic bargain, $499 for what you're getting. Really really fun to ski and definitely going to help somebody go from that intermediate level into an advanced skiing as far of the way it performs, Salomon 8.0.

Hi I'm Kevin. I just got off the brand new Salomon X Drive 8.0. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. Hands down one of the best values at this price point. Just a really good, easy going ski that's kinda game for whatever. Very smooth on edge, really nurtures you into carving, you know to a good solid carve. Solid edge grip underfoot, with just you know it's kinda up for whatever. So hard packed snow, a little bit of fluff, a little bit of crud, you know it's just down for it and it will make you a better skier.

Hi I'm Ryan. I just got off the Salomon X Drive 80. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. For this low price point you get a ton of features with it. This ski is great for that beginner to intermediate skier who needs a ski that transitions to edge very smoothly, but can also hold a carve very nicely.

Hi I'm Troy. I just got off the Salomon X Drive 80. I'm gonna give this ski 4.5 out of 5 stars. I think it's an absolutely amazing beginner ski. It's extremely light and nimble, really easy to work with. You can smear your turns, but it also pops really really well. If you want to really start to learn how to carve properly and make short carving turns, it's a really really fun ski for that person that's just getting into skiing or wants to get a little bit better.

Hey I'm Mike. I just got done skiing the Salomon X Drive 80. X Drive replaces the Enduro from last year so it's a similar feeling. Lighter over all in the X Drive series, but this is a fun little ski. I give this a 4 out of 5 stars. I would say this is really good for the advanced beginner, into the intermediate and moving up the line. It's really stable, it's really quick, it's snappy, it's fun, it will pretty much take you all over the mountain. All radius turns it handles pretty well, I think the sweet spot for this ski is probably the medium radius turns. So if you're going to be doing the frontside of the mountain all day, this ski won't beat you up, it's very forgiving, it's damp and it's just a really good smooth cruiser. So I give this a 4 out of 5 stars for the Salomon X Drive 80.

Hi I'm Steve. I just got off the Salomon X Drive 80. I give this 4 out of 5 stars, for a beginner intermediate ski this was great. It was very easy to turn, it was very forgiving, it was surprisingly stable at moderate speeds, and it was just really a lot of fun. If you're an intermediate skier or a beginner looking to become an intermediate skier and you want a ski that's just super easy to turn, and super easy to edge I think you would really love this ski.

Hi I'm Thom. I just got off the Salomon X Drive 80. I'm gonna give this little guy 4 out of 5 stars. For a price point type ski like this it's just super dynamic, it's really easy going. What it can do for you is, it can skid and smear turns for your kinda beginner and entry level skier, somebody who's maybe just getting off rentals. But it also responds really well when you tip it up on edge and it really will help you learn how to become a better skier and really dial in your carving technique. It's certainly not for a intermediate or above skier but for your beginner that really wants to get better, this is a fantastic choice.
