Hey, this is Jeff. I just got off of the Salomon XDrive 8.0. This is their non-metal entry-level system ski. $499.99. It's a great ski for an intermediate skier who wants to progress to become a better skier or maybe somebody that wants to take it back a notch. It's got a cap tip and toe so it's really easy in and out of turns. But it's a full sandwich construction underfoot so when you're in the apex of the turn there's plenty of ski there for ya. Incredible value and a really fun ski on the frontside carver and hard pack and again a great ski for somebody that's looking to get better. This is the Salomon 8.0 XDrive and I give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

Hey, this is Josh. Just got off the 8.0 XDrive by Salomon. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. Fairly stiff underfoot. Held awesome long radius turns. Definitely has a really specific sweet spot and when you find that sweet spot this ski is very smooth, very nice. It's responsive enough to give you some short, medium snappy turns which are fun. It definitely kind of lives in that longer radius turn world. This would be great for that intermediate frontside skier who's really looking to utilize groomed runs and hard pack. Again, 4 out of 5 stars.

Hey, I'm Lucas. I just got off the XDrive 8.0 by Salomon. Enjoyed this ski. I'd place it for a intermediate to advanced skier but there's a wide range; this could be for you. I'm going to give this 4 out of 5 stars. Really enjoyed it on more intermediate to long turns. Short it was a little difficult to get over on it but when I was really carving longer turns, a lot of fun. Frontside ski. 4 out of 5 stars.

Hi, I'm Thom. I just got off of the Salomon XDrive 8.0. This is a 4 out of 5 star ski for me. It's really aimed at your true, true beginner type skier so as you'd expect it skids and slides the turn really, really easily. It's a very comfortable ski to be on but it also does get up onto edge and handles up to medium speeds pretty well. Definitely aimed at your beginner maybe to mid-intermediate at the high side of things but certainly a ski that will get you out of rental equipment, get you onto your own stuff and really let you improve as a skier. 4 out of 5 stars.

I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Salomon XDrive 8.0. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's a great ski for that beginner to mellow intermediate skier. It's very easy to control. It's nice and snappy. It skis great at medium to short radius turns. It's just really, really easy to control. You can skid a turn if you have to. If you're starting to carve turns this is a good way to go as well. 4 out of 5 stars.

Hi, this Hans. I just came off the Salomon XDrive 8.0. This is your first price-point ski. It's a ski coming off rental skis, you want to own your first pair. You're a beginner even up to advance-intermediate skier. This ski skis really, really well for that category. I give this ski a 3 out of 5.
