Hi, I'm Monica and I just got off the Salomon Iris. This...I give this ski a 5 out of 5. It's a great frontside ski. It is an intermediate to advanced ski. If that's your ski style, you'll love this ski. Another thing you should know is that this binding, extremely easy to get in and out of which sometimes is overlooked but it's a really great binding system. The turns turn beautifully - long or short. Grips the snow. Really great ski - again, I give it a 5 out of 5.

Hi, I'm Julie. I just got off the Salomon Iris. I give this ski a 5 out of 5 star rating. Another excellent ski from Salomon. I really enjoyed their entire collection this year and this one is exactly, you know, as everything else is. Really stable. Extremely easy to turn. I mean you literally think about going left and you're going left. You think about going right and you're going right. Great at short, medium, long radius turns. Everything. It does prefer a little bit shorter radius turns. There's a little bit more energy and life to ski with those. You can skid a turn with this but it definitely is for somebody that would like to improve to be able to carve turns because once you get up to that carving level it really starts to come alive more.

Hi, I'm Annie and I just rode the Salomon Iris. It is a new ski for Salomon. I'm going to give it a 4 out of 5. It's an advanced ski. Nicely stable. Really good at the big turns. Short, quick turns just as well. A little bit of help in the stability. You can't relax, you gotta stay on this ski. Again, I give it a 4 out of 5.

Hi, I'm Jessica and I just got off the Salomon Iris Ski. I give this ski a 4 out of 5 star rating. It's going to be good for the advanced intermediate going into advanced level rider. It holds a really good edge once you get it up to speed. I'm a more mellow skier so that's why I only gave it a 4 but even going slower, working on turns, it still held a really good edge for me. Again, 4 out of 5. You'd really like this if you're more of an advanced skier.

 

Linda's Review Rating:

Hi, this is Linda. I just finished skiing the Salomon Iris. I give this a 3 out of 5 stars. This is an intermediate to advanced-intermediate ski, all-mountain. It is very forgiving. It turns real easily. It's not super stable at speeds. I tend to go a little faster and I was on some hard snow today. It's a little chattery. Edges okay. It's more for cruising the mountain. Following a group of advanced skier you'll be really comfortable on it but keep the speeds low. 3 out of 5.
