2015 Salomon X-Drive 8.8 FS ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its All-Mountain Front Category. The X-Drive 8.8 FS has two visible elements that contribute to the high scores it received in the carving category: A carbon X-shaped chassis adds torsional stiffness and edge grip; composite fiber inserts in the tip and tail stabilize the effect of rocker for easier turn initiation.
