The Enduro 850 XT blends race construction with All-Mountain characteristics, but received its highest marks for carving. "This fun ski had controlled energy in both the bumps and on the groomers," Witman said. "It's easy to initiate and a blast to lay over." An 84-millimeter waist adds versatility along with Salomon’s All Terrain Rocker, or early rise in the wide tip. A layer of bamboo in the wood core reduces weight, but two layers of titanium laminate provide more edge grip and precision. The dampening Powerline All-Mountain technology has twin arms in the top edges of the ski to absorb vibrations. "It's not a slalom specialist, instead it's best for the skier who wants to cruise the resort all day," Gaudet said.
