Product Description

Salomon built the Lord Ski to rule equally well on deep powder days, crud days, and days when you fly down the steepest corduroy groomers at speeds that could melt the Gore-Tex off your jacket.
With a midfat width and ample sidecut to really grip the groomers, you have all-mountain power at your fingertips. The Lord Ski isn't just for control freaks though.
If you love playing in the powder like a puppy loves the dog pond, its rockered semi-twin tips and highly responsive wood core ensure you ll float through day after day of frivolity. Trust in the Lord for big-mountain stability in a full variety of conditions.

The returning Lord, a Gold Medal selection in previous years, is an all-mountain semi-twin-tip width a versatile shape that makes it a good choice as an everyday, all-conditions ski for Eastern or Western skiers.
It's a wood-core, double-monocoque (structural cap) construction, with a two-layer cap spanning edge to edge for enhanced power. Salomon's All-Terrain Rocker combines zero camber with a rockered tip, so it will be buoyant in soft snow and smooth-riding in rough terrain, yet still responsive on the groomed.

Extra wide, reinforced edges are built to be extra durable. What's more, they're further reinforced: strong polyethylene fibers are used to secure the two edges to each other across the width of the ski, to make it harder to rip one out. Pulse Pad technology-a strip of rubber over the edge-quiets vibrations. The moderate sidecut will prefer medium- to small-radius arcs.



All Terrain Rocker shape in the tip area, with a medium length and low height, enables maximum terrain absorption and easy, progressive turn initiation, without sacrificing stability. An 80% pressure zone when flat precisely transitions to a 95% pressure zone when on edge for performance and precision on all conditions.
Semi Twin Tip tail increases the snow contact and stability at high speeds.

Edgy Monocoque offers precise edge grip, no excess material, and efficient energy transfer from the skier to the snow for freeskiing.
PULSE PAD is a layer of rubber along the edges and in certain zones of the ski for a smoother ride and improved ski-snow contact.
Edge Armor incorporates an extremely durable polyethylene fiber cord cross-laced between the edges of the skis to increase the edge strength for less edge depression and wrenching.
Wide Edges are thicker for increased durability and improved shock resistance.
Total Edge Reinforcement has a fiber directly on the edges providing edge stiffness for improved durability and grip.

Full Woodcore from tip to tail offers optimum stability on snow and powerful rebound, which maximizes ski/snow contact and filters vibrations.
Monocoque is a single structural layer of fiber for optimal comfort, response, and maneuverability.

andrea.ittoo hard..

Voted 3/5

A little too hard for my taste. Also too heavy.
They are good skis, but not very funny, difficult to ride.
