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].
