The Salomon Enduro LX 800 is a perfect ski for the intermediate to advanced skier who will spend most of their time on the groomers, but not be afraid to go into the powder, or trees when the snow is falling. The 78mm waist is primarily for groomers, but will give you some float when you adventure off the trail. The LX 800 sports a full wood core with a double layer of titanium, that has lots of stability, but a lively feel. The All Terrain Rocker has tip rocker in the shovel with camber underfoot. Tip rocker will help the ski plane on top of the powder, initiate a quick turn on the groomers, and absorb the negative vibrations caused by bumps and crud. The Single Monocoque Cap Construction is lightweight, but gives you great edge grip when the snow is firm or icy, with out being too demanding. Salomon uses a Pulse Pad Dampening System on all of the Enduro line for vibration dampening. The Pulse Pad System uses elastomers on the entire edge of the ski, and in the shovel to absorb vibrations and smoother ski to snow contact. A great value, and Salomon has really stepped up the performance of the Enduro series, compared to the previous X-Wing line.
Hey this is Sean here, I just got done skiing the Salomon Enduro LX 800 ski. This ski was a pretty phenomenal ski in certain aspects, in that if your an older skier, you want a more comfortable ride where your not having to press to hard, not having to take a lot of effort to get on your turn this would be a good ski for you. It's nice and easy and maneuverable, stable short turns are quick and snappy. The only thing is you can easily grow out of this ski. That's the thing I kind of didn't like. I felt like it didn't have the extra energy if you want to rip down a little bit, make faster long turns, really carve deep in. That's why I only give this ski a 4 out of 5.
