Description: Salomon X-Drive 8.0 FS Skis

For the aggressive skier who likes making fast, tight turns on groomed terrain, the Salomon X-Drive 8.0 FS Skis are a dream come true. The Honeycomb tip reduces the swing weight for increased maneuverability and control and it absorbs vibrations for a smooth ride at any speed. The X-Chassis, with diagonal carbon reinforcement throughout the mid-body of the ski increases torsional rigidity for excellent power, and stability. The RKS (Rocker Stabilizer) infuses a composite fiber directly into the contact point for quick, effortless turn initiation. The Light Density Wood Core and a single Ti Laminate make the ski super lightweight and provide an impossibly fast edge to edge transitions. Full-length Sandwich Sidewalls deliver superior edge grip on even the firmest snow. For aggressive front- side carving, you cannot beat the X- Drive 8.0 FS Skis.

What bindings would one recommend for these skis?
A shopper on Mar 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Depends on your weight, so please feel free to call sales with any questions. I f you are under 190 lbs, the Salomon STH 10 Ski Bindings Silver/Black 2015, or the Salomon STH12 Oversized Ski Bindings 2015;
would both work well in the 90 mm width, with the Salomon X-Drive 8.0 FS Skis.
For mainly front side on piste skiing but at a high level, how does this ski compare to the Volkl RTM 81, and which would you recommend?
A shopper on Oct 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey there!

I haven't ski'd either of these but I'd say they are pretty comparable carving machines. It seems that the Salomon X-Drive 8.0 FS might edge out (pun intended) the Volkl RTM 81 because of the honeycomb tip which dramatically lowers the swing weight and greatly reduces the overall weight of the ski. It still allows for a damp and solid ski while also adding tip strength and reducing deflection without making it a floppy noodle. Really great tech.
what year is the green solomon 8-0 x drive?

BEST ANSWER: 2015!
What bindings you recommend for a 6'1" , 210 lb person on the 175 cm x-drive fs ski?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Salomon XT10 are a great binding that would match up with the X-Drive 8.0 Skis. We actually have a preset package with the combo for only $499.99. Check it out HERE: http://www.the-house.com/8963saxd8xt1c16zz-salomon-ski-packages.html
Can you put an 100 mm binding on that ski?
Mark H on Oct 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Mark,
You could, but 100mm here is just too wide. For these Salomon X-Drive skis look for a 90mm binding (80mm ski).
