Salomon Lord Skis Review
All Mountain, Advanced Skis
What I say about them
These skis had a lot to live up to, they have been voted Fall line skis of the year, so I was expecting alot. The previous Lord skis I have ridden were foam core so they started to go a bit soft after a while, making them a bit of a flash in the pan ski. However they are now made with wood cores (finally) and keep thier perfomance. So first impressions were good.
On the goomers, or piste if you will they did the business, allowing me to both carve and turn quickly, which is no mean feat for an all mountain ski, as winder skis usually make going edge to edge much harder. So it was a good start for them.
Ok lets see how you guys handle a bit of off piste, deep down I was hoping they would just sink and make it really hard work, but oh no due to thier long nose and rocker technology (where the nose and tip acutually bend up upwards!) and width they just floated through the powder. Damn them.
I really wanted to hate these skis, like the athelete who always wins, you want to hate them, but actually you can’t help but love them. Well done Salomon.
I give these 4 out of 5 (They would of got 5 if they hadn’t won ski of the year)
