The new Salomon XDR 79 CF makes an incredible value for the intermediate to advanced skier who wants a lightweight and nimble ski for the groomers. Salomon's new CFX Superfiber Construction adds extra snap and stability to the XDR 79 without adding any extra weight. A Single Layer of Titanium sits above a Woodcore that to deliver a stable and responsive feeling, even when you are riding at fast speeds. Salomon's All-Terrain Rocker 2.0 uses rocker in the tip and tail for added maneuverability and easier control. A Semi-Sandwich Construction has a cap construction in the tip and tail that adds some forgiveness while a vertical sidewall underfoot grips the snow when conditions get firm. The Pulse Pad has elastomers behind the sidewall that help dampen out vibrations to keeps your skiing smooth. If you want a fantastic ski at a great value for carving on the frontside of the mountain, the new XDR 79 CF from Salomon is the perfect ski for you.

I've been skiing on either rentals or old K2's and Volkl's up to this point. After using these Salomon XDR 79 skis I have improved my control and carving on the first day of using them. Even on hard packed icy groomers. It's amazing how the...Read More

Hi I'm Thom I just got off of the Salomon XDR 79 CF. This is a 4 out of 5 star ski for me. It is definitely geared towards your athletic beginner or somebody who has rented few times, who really wants to push their skills to a solid interme...Read More

Q: Hi! I consider myself solid intermediate skier feeling quite comfortable on red runs (even approaching black sometimes, but mostly for fun, not for serious technical skiing). I used rentals all my life but want to get my first pair of skis this season. I want to ski all day in all conditions (exluding freeride), have fun and gradually improve. I wnated to get XDR 80 Ti since it got impressive 1st place in WorldSkiTest ratings, but then again I am REALLY lightweight at 5' 6'' and 115 lbs so I thought maybe the mellower XDR 79 CF would fit me better. What do you think? Also, which sizing would you suggest? 160 cm seems to be good, but then again it has rocker on both tips, so maybe size up to 170cm? Thanks!

A: I agree with you. Due to your lightweight stature I think the XDR 79 CF would be a great option for you. The 160cm would be my size recommendation.

Q: Hi, I´ve a pair of Salomon Bamboo (first pair) , and was looking for a new pair of skies. Looking at this XDR 79, I´m normally onpiste guy, but lack skills in the late days, where ice can sluchy. Could these XDR 79 be the right ones for me? (y50, skiing since 2003)

A: The XDR 79 would be a nice step up in technology from your older Salomon Bamboo skis. Lightweight and easy to control on the groomers.

Q: Hi Adam, I am looking to purchase my first pair of skis after about 6 seasons of using various rentals. I would place myself as an Intermediate advancing up and ski on piste for the time being. Which would you recommend out of the Salomon XDR 79 or Salomon X-Drive 8.0 skis if it were out of these two for me? Thanks!

A: If you are moving up to a more advanced intermediate I would recommend the X-Drive 8.3 or new XDR 80 Ti for you. The XDR 79 is an upgrade from a rental ski, but it's always a little better to get a ski slightly above where your ability is to have more ski for you to grow into.

Q: Hi, I'm a 154lbs 5,95ft skier. I've started skiing last season, took a few lessons with professional instructor and feel comfortable on blue runs. I was using rental equipment last season (salomon x-drive 8.0 which I liked, Volkl RTM 75 IS and few other that I don't remember). This season I would like to buy my own skis. l already own Salomon xmax 100 boots that I've used last year. Are those skies are good for me or should I move down to xdr 78?
Asked : Nov 09, 2017
By : Jarek, NY
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: The XDR 79 CF will be a much better option. The XDR 78 is not much of a step up from what you were renting. The 79 will give you a better ski in the long run with more room to improve.

Q: I started skiing three years ago with a pair of Atomic Vario Fiber 72 and think I'm up to intermediate level now, although still a bit shaky when the non-prepped snow on the piste starts forming. Are the Salomon XDR 79 a 'good step' up to a bit more advanced style with speed but still have an agile turning ski on hard groomed pistes, with the occassional off-piste (not 100% powder) adventure? I'm 189 cm and 75kg so thinking the 170 length is good. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks
Asked : Sep 30, 2017
By : Bengt, Oslo
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: The XDR 79 in a 170cm would be a perfect option for you for strictly staying on piste. They are a little narrow for anything more than 5 inches of powder. If you want something lightweight, smooth and easy to turn, this would be a great choice.

Q: Hi, I've been skiing for a handful of years on rentals and cheap demos and want to finally get my own. I feel I'm an intermediate that is trying to perfect my carving and explore a little more. I'm a middle aged male at 5'4 and 138lbs. I was looking at the 150cm. Would this ski and size be a good fit?
Asked : Sep 18, 2017
By : msp1, midwest
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: This is a perfect ski for you and the 150cm would be right for your weight and ability. Nice job with the research.
