The Cira from Salomon makes a great ski for the true beginner up to intermediate skier looking for a ski that will be forgiving enough to learn with, but sturdy enough to progress to a solid intermediate. The Wood Core provides the Cira with a light and lively feeling that excels at making short radius turns down a mellow groomer. Salomon's Comfortech Technology has vibration absorbing fibers that quiet the ride to allow you to achieve speeds that you never have before. The Progressive Transfer Pad has elastomers inside the construction of the ski that increase the amount of energy that you transfer for additional control and stability. The Cira is equipped with a Control Frame Construction that has a 3D shape that has specific edge grip zones that strengthen edge contact to improve responsiveness. Salomon's Semi-Sandwich Construction uses a vertical sidewall underfoot for edge grip, and a Monocoque Cap in the tips and tails for forgiveness and maneuverability. Carve Rocker in the tip of the Cira initiates turns easier, while the camber on the rest of the ski will give you rebound, and additional edge hold. If you are looking for a lightweight and snappy ski to cruise the green circles and blue squares the Salomon Cira makes and excellent option.
Hi, I'm Julie. I just got off the Salomon Cira. I give this ski a 5 out of 5 star rating. It's rated for a beginner to advanced-intermediate level ski. I found it to be really effortless to turn at both the shorter and the medium radius turn. All in all, it's a nice lightweight... actually quite stable at speed. You know, beginner to intermediate level ski. I don't think it's definitely not too much for somebody that's looking for a first set of skis if they're really planning on progressing but it definitely has a little bit more beef to it if you want to actually take it up and ski a little bit faster too. It's all in all a really nice ski.
Hi, I'm Jessica and I just got off the Salomon Cira Ski. I give this ski a 5 out of 5. It's great for the athletic beginner to intermediate. You can even get an advanced intermediate on this. Held a great at speed. Works on the short, medium and long turns, it didn't favor one versus the other. I really like this ski. It was a great ski. Again, 5 out of 5.
Hi, I'm Annie and I just got off the Salomon Cira. I'm going to give this ski a 4 out of 5. It's a beginner approaching intermediate ski. It was a lot of fun in crud and it's for the groomers in the front but I think you could actually have a blast with the kids in the woods. It's lightweight, maneuverable and all around a pretty fun ski. Again, it's a 4 out of 5.
Hi, I'm Brigitte and I just got off the Salomon Cira ski. I first looked at this ski and the graphics are awesome, but how does it ski? I gave it a 4.5 out of 5 stars. It's a great ski for that intermediate looking to advance. It's very stable. It felt like it caught a good edge and was easy to turn but it was very challenging. So, I give that 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Hi, I'm Marcia. Just got off the Salomon Cira. I give this a 5 out of 5 stars. I think it's excellent for an intermediate skier. It was really smooth over any bumps that occurred. It took the turns really well. I felt very stable and secure on this ski and it was a controlled ski that I felt took the groomed hills excellent. Again, I think it's a 5 out of 5 stars and it's perfect for an intermediate skier.
A: At your height and weight your ideal size range covers from 161-168cm making either the 161 or the 168 fine lengths for you. The 161 would be ideal if expect to be more timid and cautious out of the gate because the shorter ski is easier to control and skid. The 168 would be better if you have a strong athletic background or are the kind of person who really jumps into things and goes for it, as the additional length will add stability and control at speed.

Q: Hello! I have never skied before and I'm wondering what length I should get. I'm 5'8" 125 lbs. and am very interested in these skis.
A: At your height and weight as a beginner to intermediate skier you are going to want to pick a ski in the 145-150cm range, give or take a centimeter or two. This will get you on something stable and easy to turn that will still offer enough support for you to progress and improve your technique.

Q: my daughter is 5" 6" 120lbs and this will be her 4th year skiing. She can ski all trails but gravitates towards new England groomers. Do you think she would be better off in the 147 or 154 length of the salomon cira?
