    Changing The Brakes on Salomon X16 Lab

    So, I've got a line on some Salomon X16 Lab bindings, which appeal to me both for the DIN range and their VAR system (I used to ski on Ess bindings exclusively back in the day), but they've only got 70mm brakes and I'm planning to mount them to a ski with a 97mm waist. A lot of bindings have...

    Salomon Using Plant Fibers for Skis

    This is interesting. Salomon is using flax grown in Normandy as part of their skis. Layered with carbon fiber. We went through basalt fibers, rocks, several years ago and now we're on plants.

    Who owns who? Current ski company ownership

    I've lost track of which ski companies are in which company "families". I've searched, but not coming up with an accurate updated picture of how things currently are with the parent companies and their brands. Anyone have a reference source with the answers?

    Salomon S/LAB MTN Boot and Binding compatibility

    I've googled this topic to death trying to find the answer, I may have already found the answer but I am not sure the answer I found is definite enough. I also may have gone a bit crazy over the last couple months trying to find the answer and never really finding one that is backed up multiple...

It's been a fun season on the bindings and I think Salomon are onto a winner here. But why? Let's get into that, but first a little background..... Tester - Matt Appleford, age...

    The 95ish trend

    A few short years ago (two to three) the 95ish width skis sorta fell between the cracks. It is a shame because there were some very good ones, like the Salomon Sentinel and Dynastar Legend 94, and even the Kastle FX94 didn't get all the love it deserved. Now this segment is being attacked and...
