The Salomon Enduro XT 850 is the ski for advanced or expert skier who demands performance and control out of their skis. A new construction includes a Full Wood Core that is reinforced with two layers of titanium, and a layer of bamboo. The wood is stable and responsive, the titanium is stiff and damp, and the layer of bamboo gives the XT 850 a quick and lively feel. The Extended Transfer Plate is an aluminum plate embedded in rubber for direct feedback from the terrain, and better power transmission. The All Terrain Rocker is rocker in the tip, with camber underfoot. Tip rocker will help you float in the powder, deflect the negative vibrations from crud, moguls, and help the ski initiate quicker turns on the groomers. Vertical Side walls give the Enduro XT 850 unmatched edge grip on firm slopes. The 84mm waist is floaty in the powder, and quick edge to edge on medium radius turns. The Pulse Pad Dampening System has elastomers along the entire edge of the ski, and in the shovel to reduce vibrations and negative energy, and make smoother ski to snow contact. Salomon's Protrak Z 12 binding system gives the ski a nice even, deep flex that can handle all situations. If you are looking for a ski that has all of the bells and whistles, to enhance your ski day: look no further than the Salomon Enduro XT 850, it can handle all conditions and will not disappoint even the strongest of skiers.
Great ski, wide body, but turns quickly, even in moguls, definitely built more for a big variety of terrain and conditions, as usual Salomon built a ski that has extreme edge grip, the best in the industry in my opinion.
Hi I'm EJ. I just demonstrated the Salomon Enduro XT 850 This ski rocks if you're looking for solid edge hold at speed on hard pack conditions this ski will hold for you! 84 mm underfoot, it's going to give you all Mountain versatility in powder and it is a rockered constructed ski so you will have some engaging front ends for powder and bumps. Not quite as agile as the model below it, the 800, but it's certainly more stable at speed and I would give it a solid 4 1/2 stars. This ski will get you down the hill with all the confidence that you need and a nice sense of agility.
Hi I'm Kevin, I just got off the New Salomon Enduro XT 850 This is the widest ski in the Enduro line, definitely the most versatile. Little bit of rocker in the tip, full sidewall layer of titanal. This thing rips, it's just nice and poppy. Very smooth, very stable with the rocker in the tip. It makes it very, very easy to initiate the turn and just kind of flows from turn to turn. Got a nice little pop in the turn. Definitely for a little bit more aggressive skier. With the layup it's got in it now it's definitely a step up from the old series so you want to be a little more aggressive. For the advanced to expert level skier that's going to be spending a lot of time on the front side and adventure into the back woods a little bit, some crud, some trees. Great all-around, gets 4 1/2 out of 5 stars from me.
Hi this is Thom and I'm here with the Salomon Enduro XT 850 This is the flagship ski in the Enduro line. Widest one, full side wall a little bit of tip rocker to it. I give this thing 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. Really solid ski not, necessarily the typical Salomon feel but it's real damp, real stable, powerful on edge. Gets on the plane real easy, carves both the more open long radius and tighter turns quite well. The only thing where it gets a little deduction is I would like a little more pop out of the tail of the ski. But for anybody who was an aggressive all mountain skier that tends to prefer groomed or packed terrain, they are really going to like it.
Trey here with Salomons Enduro XT 850 A new ski for them this year and a fantastic ski! For a ski that is this stable and damp and smooth it's very, very easy to ski. They put a little bit of rocker in it and that's what makes the difference. Normally these skis at high speed or transitioning turns are a little bit more difficult but that rocker just makes it nice and smooth. Anybody from a solid intermediate to even a casual expert, maybe preferring groomed trails are going to love this ski. I would give it 4/5 stars.
Hi, Charlie and I'm here with the Salomon XT 850 It's a new ski for Salomon, it has a new sidewall on it this year. I'm going to give it five out of five stars. For all mountain groomed runs this is a really great ski. It's really responsive with the rocker it initiates turns really easily and it's smooth transitions from turn to turn.
