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.

Really enjoyed skiing on piste and powder with these skis. Have only ever used rental skis before, and these were a big upgrade. Bindings were easy to fit myself, though I had them pressure tested by a local ski shop.

Q: HI, I am an intermediate skier who is confident on reds but cautious on black runs. I ski steady and controlled but not particularly fast. I stand 5 foot 11 tall and weigh 93kgs. I was wondering would the 170 or 177 be recommended my only concern with the longer length would be my ability to confidently put in the short turns as I usually ski on 168-172 skis, but with the rocker I was unsure if I should go bigger.

A: The rocker profile of the X-Drive does make it ride 3-5cm shorter than it measures. Based on your weight and ability the 177cm will be the optimal size for you for the most control and stability.

Q: Hi, I'm 6'2" and 136 lbs and I think I'm an intermediate, I don't do carving yet, just skidded turns, but I manage to handle even the most steep slopes with my skidding :) I use now 170 Atomic Performer Pro S, I like how they grip, but I am thinking of buying something new to step up my skills, maybe going from skidding to carving. Are the x-drive 8.0 Ti a good choice? Or should I get something else? Also, what length is ok for me? Thanks!

Q: I am a male, 5' 11" and 145lbs, an advanced intermediate. I ski mostly at Sunday River on blues and blacks. I'm looking for skis that will be good on hardpack and packed powder, and prefer easy to make quick turns than to go super fast. Are these a good choice of me, and if so what length to you suggest? The website says that only 163cm is available and I am concerned that might be too short.

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

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

By : Vtskier, 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.
