Tester's Review

Review: With characteristic braggadocio, Salomon promises a ski that's equally good on or off trail. And very nearly delivers. In truth, the XT 800 is primarily built for success on groomers and hardpack-where its wood-plus-metal, vertical-sidewall construction holds its own against less versatile skis-but an effective rocker profile gives it some float and shock-absorption in crud and bumps. It was No. 2 in both Quickness and Forgiveness-which might be the very definition of "playful." "One of the more versatile in the category; fun to ski all over," said Mearce. Notes: A bamboo layer is included edge to edge in the layup to add liveliness. Salomon's All-Terrain Rocker combines zero camber with a rockered tip, so it will be buoyant in soft snow and smooth-riding in rough terrain, yet still responsive on the groomed. The 850 is available flat or with a binding, the Z12 binding, which has a maximum DIN of 12.
