Smooth and easy to maneuver the Salomon X-Wing 6 is perfect confidence building ski for any beginner to advanced intermediate. The Composite Core Construction in the X-Wing 6 is incredibly lightweight and forgiving, so Salomon reinforced it with a Single Ti Laminate. The addition of this metal layer improves edge grip, energy transfer, and liveliness so that you can learn to make more advanced parallel and carved turns. The effortless maneuverability of the X-Wing 6 is complimented by the Monocoque Construction which provides the edge grip necessary to take your turning to the next level. The Lightrak L10 Binding system is perfectly integrated into the ski at a position to help perfect your skiing. Salomon has added some high end features to this mid-level ski to help take your skills to the next level. When ripping up the slopes you want a smooth, solid feeling ski under your feet so Salomon included their 3D Stealth Tip which lowers the tip profile to allow the ski to rollover terrain variations and keep the front of the ski calm and smooth. And to protect your knees the X-Wing 6 boasts Salomon's Pulse Pad technology, an Elastomer Layer for shock absorption. So wither you're exploring new terrain, or accidentally found some cruddy snow, the X-Wing 6 will have all of the technology necessary to keep your skis tracking and you smiling.

These are my first skis so of course I've fallen down over and over again. These skis are very durable and endure harsh wipeouts. They're light in weight and easy to carve with. Im quite happy with my purchase.
The 2011 Salomon X-wing 6s are my first set of skis I have ever purchased. I completely recommend these skis. I'm a beginner/intermediate skier and these skis fit my abilities perfectly. These skis have enabled me to successfully complete the more challenging "blue" trails. These skis are very responsive and will propel you out of turns, with the great handling and stability that X-wings are known for. These skis have enabled me to rise to the next level to the chagrin of my friends. For completing this survey I will receive a $10 credit.
