 Overview
 

The Salomon X-Drive 8.8 FS is a powerful ski for bigger, stronger skiers looking for stability anywhere on the mountain. The X-Chassis Construction improves edge hold and responsiveness by using Carbon and Polyamide Stringers in the middle of the ski. A Basalt Layer sits above the Light Density Full Wood Core to add extra strength, but not add any extra weight to the ski. Salomon's RKS (Rocker Stabilizer) utilizes a 3D Composite Fiber Reinforcement that eliminates tip chatter when you are really cranking up the speed. A new Koroyd Tip lowers the swingweight of the ski to make it less fatiguing and more maneuverable for big sweeping turns down a steep groomer, or zipping through the tight trees on a fresh snow day.

Hi I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Salomon X-Drive 8.8 FS. This is a 5 star ski for me, and frankly this is my kind of front side ski. It's big, it's 88mm underfoot, it's very stiff but it's also extremely light. It holds a great edge on the firm snow it's really easy to maneuver at medium to long radius turns, and it's ultra stable at speed. For strong intermediates to all the way up to experts this is a great ski for you, 5 out of 5.

Hi I'm Steve, I just got off the Salomon X-Drive 8.8 FS. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. Awesome, stable ski underfoot. Great for long sweeping turns, really under control in fast conditions, really enjoyed it. Great for making long turns, but also very controllable. I highly recommend it for intermediate looking to move into the advanced level, or an advanced skier would really enjoy this on the front side of the mountain.

Hi I'm Thom and I just got off of the Salomon X-Drive 8.8 FS. This is a 5 out of 5 star ski for me. I absolutely love this thing, if you're looking for a front side ski that is incredibly stable and incredibly powerful this is it. Tons of edge hold, gets up on to edge real easily. That kind of medium to long radius turn is where this thing is most at home. So if you want really short, snappy, fall line turns you're probably going to want to look to the little skinnier version. But if you're looking for just that all-mountain on trail ripper, this is a fantastic ski. A little bit too much for your kind of medium intermediate, but for an advanced skier upwards this is a great ride. 5 out of 5.
