2015/2016 Salomon Iris ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s Frontside Category.

“A serious, solid ski that can carve in a variety of conditions,” says Kelly of the new Iris. The 78-mm-waisted ski sports technology that combines weight reduction with performance in two parts: 1. Control Frame—edge-grip enhancing 3D shape around the ski perimeter, and 2. Comfortech—vibration absorbing inserts. Construction includes a wood core, ABS sidewall underfoot and Monocoque cap at the rockered tip and tail. The Iris acquired higher scores for carving, lower for versatility and playfulness. “Pretty quick to roll over and arc, and plowed through heavier pockets of snow,” says Van Deursen.
