A PISTE SKI THAT FLOATS IN POWDER
BBR is a ski like no other ski ever made. An oversized, surfboard like tip and rocker shape enable the ski to float in powder and adapt to uneven terrain smoothly and predictably
An optimized tip and tail
The BBR's tip and tail ensure great floatation in powder, and amazing on-piste carving while reducing unnecessary weight compared with a normal freeski.
A powder ski THAT CARVES ON PISTE
BBR's narrow waist and pintail, its short radius and short effective edge on-piste provide great grip and playfulness on harder snow. What Salomon calls the "V" shape, is literally 2 skis in one
Historically, skis have been mostly designed around a classic X-shape concept. The new V-shape is characterized by a surf board shaped tip , a narrow waist and a pin tail. The overall result is versatile performance that must be experienced to be believed
Ride and Hike
Salomon patented system combining the backbone release with a specific V-cut shape on the back of the lower shell. Allows wide rear cuff opening when hiking (Backbone unlocked) & true alpine forward flex when skiing down (Backbone locked) because the backside of the backbone fits precisely into the V-cut lower shell.
Inspired by the racing, custom shell is about performance. Racers today needs to drive precisely their 2 skis, they need to feel the terrain to be precise on the ski : Precision is as important than power. Metas are key for Precision, if the shell is too wide you lost precision, if the shell is too narrow, it is painfull so you can't feel the terrain. You need to have the shell at your exact foot shape : you need to have the boot molded to your foot shape. This is exactly what our race technicians do for our racers ; this is exactly what Custom Shell will do to your boot. We develop a specific plastic material Kaprolene that allow us to mold the boot around the foot. This is patented by Salomon. For the Consumer this means he can now pretend to have the top performance boot without foot pains : we're adding comfort to performance.
World Cup Advanced Shell Tech
This is a declination of our latest development in World Cup Boots design. This is a more powerfull version of the Advanced Shell technology with improvment on the back support, the body positionning into the boot and the torsion control of the boot (ratio between tolerance and transmission). This kind of construction is designed to transfer the maximum of power from the skier to the ski.
