Salomon S-race Skin
Salomon's S-race skin ski is lightweight and modeled after its well-known S-lab series. The ski features its signature Zeolite base and an upgraded skin section. The kick zone offers AT climbing-skin technology's pink skin, wherein the hairs on the ski are shorter and laid in an upgraded braiding method that creates an improved gliding surface and consistent kick, resulting in a very successful high-end ski. The SRP is $599 [US] / $669 [CDN].
Rossignol R-skin Race
Rossignol's R-skin Race is “a real-deal race ski,” according to Ryan Green, its Nordic division manager. Modeled after the company's renowned X-ium line, it features good grip and consistent kick in almost all snow conditions, while the shorter mohair section enhances the glide. Introducing skin technology on higher-performance skis means more time skiing, even in challenging snow conditions, or the ability to go out for a quick evening ski post-work. This is also a great ski to take along when travelling in various climates or conditions, such as an unusually warm ski race. The SRP is $579 [US] / $750 [CDN].
