Salomon Idol 9 (2008)
The new Idol 9 is beautifully designed, with a translucent green body and lots of friendly and functional features, including dual-side cuff alignment and a custom-moldable liner. It shares a chassis with the men’s Impact, so it’s powerful. Its silky flex is spot-on, even in variable snow conditions, and the spine is sufficiently rigid for strong turn finishes. “It’s a willing partner and will do whatever you ask with total assurance,” said Reigle.
All-terrain skiers who jockey their skis rather than go along for the gallop.
Slim forefeet. There’s lots of room in long toe box.
