 Overview
 

Intermediate to advanced skiers love the Salomon X-Drive 8.0 Ti for hitting the groomers at various speeds. A Wood Core with a Double Titanium Layer gives you fantastic stability and rebound with a very lively feeling for making short to medium radius turns. Salomon's All Terrain Rocker 2.0 has a rockered tip to initiate turns quickly, camber underfoot will provide you with rebound and a small amount of rocker in the tail releases you out of turns effortlessly. The 8.0 Ti has a Semi-Sandwich Construction with a vertical sidewall underneath the binding platform that gives you solid edge hold on firm snow with a Monocoque Cap Construction in the tips and tails to make the ski easy to maneuver. Salomon's X-Chassis uses a Carbon/Polyamide Diagonal Reinforcement woven over the middle of the ski to increase the torsional strength and make the ski more responsive, especially at higher speeds. To round out this total package, Salomon has added the RKS (Rocker Stabilizer) to increase the precision of the ski and reduce the chances of the tip wobbling when you lay them flat and really start moving. If you are looking for a stable and easy to maneuver ski that will cave beautiful arcs down the groomers the Salomon X-Drive 8.0 Ti will not disappoint you.

2016 Salomon X-Drive 8.0 Ti Ski Review by Thom
Comments:
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.

2016 Salomon X-Drive 8.0 Ti Ski Review by Adam
Comments:
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.

2016 Salomon X-Drive 8.0 Ti Ski Review by Hans
Comments:
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.

2016 Salomon X-Drive 8.0 Ti Ski Review by Jeff S.
Comments:
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.

2016 Salomon X-Drive 8.0 Ti Ski Review by Josh H.
Comments:
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.

By : Tomas, Argentina
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: We can only install bindings if boots are purchased with the skis and bindings. The actual boot that is going into the bindings must be present for both a visual inspection and physical testing. Please understand that this is for your safety.

Q: As an intermediate skier wanting to focus on good carving technique, would these ski's suit me better than the 8.0FS or 8.0? I was worried about the stiffness but the reviews seem to indicate an intermediate could still drive these. Would you recommend the 170 or 177cm (5"10', 160lbs)? Thanks and appreciate the great reviews on this site.
Asked : Sep 18, 2016
By : helix, WA
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: Based on your weight and ability I would recommend the 170cm X-Drive 8.0 Ti. You are fairly tall compared to your weight so a little extra leverage will give you solid control as you improve your carving. This ski does a great job of helping the intermediate improve without being too demanding or aggressive.

Q: I am 6' 185 lbs. Skiing currently on 174 cm Atomic blackeyes. What size ski would be right for me here. Comes in 170 and 177. How does this compare to the Blackeye? I think they are made by the same parent company?? Thanks
Asked : Jun 05, 2016
By : Ethan, Ludlow, VT
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: Based on your weight I would recommend the 177 X-Drive 8.0Ti for you. You will notice a big increase in stability and control over your skis compared to the Blackeye. This is for a solid intermediate approaching advanced skier, where the Blackeye is for a beginner.
