    Cage Match Comparison 2020 Liberty V92 vs 2020 Salomon QST 92

    Cage Match Comparison 2020 Fischer RC One GT 86 Multiflex vs 2020 Salomon S/Force Bold

    Here is the Cage Match I have had more than a few requests for, the Fischer RC One GT Multiflex and the Salomon S/Force Bold, two new skis that have been the topics of many preseason discussions. Honestly, I think it is a Cage Match that is going to disappoint many here in that these skis are...

    Individual Review Long-Term Review: 2019 Salomon S/Max Blast

    Salomon knows how to make hard-snow skis; we just wish it would offer them on a more consistent basis. Since wishing is not a good business plan, we are going to light a fire under the consumer's ass and create some awareness of the all-new S/Max collection from Salomon, specifically its halo...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Dynastar Speed Zone 12 vs 2019 Salomon S/Max 12

    One thing we can say here at is that we do love them there hard-snow skinny-type skis. This comparison comes from the people who give us toast, fries, and kisses -- yes, we are talking about the French. Dynastar quietly introduced the Speed Zone 12 a few seasons back, and it is a ski...

    Head Monster 83 or Salomon X Drive 80 ti?

    I am an advanced level Australian recreational skier. If finances line up I may be looking to do some ski instructing over either the coming season, or the one after (initially full time over school holidays and probably casual thereafter). I'm looking to buy a ski devoted to "front side...

    Cage Match Comparison 2018 Dynastar Legend X96 vs Salomon QST 99

    Vive la France. The French have never subscribed to the “me too" school of ski design, or really anything else in the industry. They also have never been afraid to take chances: external dampening with Prolink, monocoque constructions, Omega cores, asymmetrical ID shapes, different sidewall...

    Cage Match Comparison 2017 Atomic Vantage 100 CTi vs 2017 Salomon QST 99

    Yes, Salomon and Atomic are both under the Amer Group umbrella, which means there are a lot of people who don’t care which of these skis you buy as long as you buy one of them. Since I am moonlighting at a shop, I get to go to manufacturer clinics, and we just had our Atomic and Salomon...
