Josh here. Just got off the Salomon 8.0 Ti. Really enjoyed this ski. Gonna give it 5 out of 5 stars. 2 sheets of metal in this guy, little bit of early rise in the tip. Real easy to lay it over on edge. Once you're on edge at long radius and medium turns, very stable, very smooth. Fun to ride. Really carries the speed well. This would be great for that intermediate to advanced skier who's trying to get into that advanced category. This is an awesome frontside ski. If you can ski a lot of hard pack, ski a lot of groomers, this would be a great ski for you. 4 out of 5 stars.

Hi, I'm Thom. I just got off of the Salomon XDrive 8.0 Ti. I'm going to give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. For this type of ski it's really impressive what this thing can do. It's really to me, this ski is all about becoming a better and more comfortable skier. Goes up onto edge real easily, carves a turn cleanly and it will really allow you to develop real technique. But also if you're a little bit more towards the beginner side, it still skids and smears with a lot of control and very easily. So, just a...it's a very, very good ski for gaining confidence and truly becoming a better skier. 5 out of 5.

I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Salomon XDrive 80 Ti. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. It's a perfect ski for that solid intermediate skier. It skids a turn real nice, it can carve a turn fantastic, it's nice and stable at speed, it's very lively - makes it great for short and medium radius turns, and it's one of the best skiing skis out there at this price-point. 5 out of 5.

Hi, this Hans. I just came off the Salomon XDrive 8.0 Ti. This is the next step up from your basic package ski. It actually holds surprisingly well. It turns super easy. It's definitely designed for the lower intermediate level skier who wants to make the next step up. I give this ski a 4 out of 5.

Hey, this is Jeff. I just got off the Salomon XDrive 8.0 Ti. This is the 8.0 with a sheet of titanium aluminum in it. Great upper intermediate recreational advanced ski. It's a frontside carver. Lots of fun. Really snappy. I'm going to give it a 4 out of 5 stars. This is a great ski for somebody that's an advanced skier that wants to take it down a notch or somebody looking to progress with their game. Certainly a ton of fun and definitely a ski for somebody to try that wants a lot of fun on the frontside. 4 out of 5 stars for the Salomon 8.0 XDrive Ti.

Hey, Lucas here. I just got off the Salomon XDrive 8.0 Ti. I enjoyed this ski. It has 2 sheets of metal in it so super snappy, very responsive. Fairly good price-point but I'm going to have to give it 4 out of 5 stars. and recommend it to an intermediate to advanced skier.
