Strenghts:
Easy and fantastic on the top tour, but also in loose snow and on the piste. Good also to carva with. Handsome!

Weaknesses:
No, except that because of its low weight, it may be a bit "streaky" on hard icy surfaces as you travel fast on the piste.

Summary:
Easy and fun to both ride and shine with. A top ski trail that loves both snow and piste. Even though the waist of 95cm today can feel like "narrow" the ski is wonderfully wide at the front and I have never felt that it is not enough. Also owns eg. The Salomon Rocker 2 122, which is of course wider and offers a different flow in extremely large snow depths but the Mtn Explorer is, in my opinion, the perfect ski that can handle most of it thanks to its ingenious construction where low weight and stability are combined in an exemplary way. Highly recommended!

Model year: 2018
Riding style: Goes mainly powder and top tour but also some pistes
Length on the ski: 184 cm

Strenghts:
An extremely versatile ski, which also makes very much very good. Easy enough to go on a long trip, but far from wrong to mount alpine binding on either. Maybe the perfect ski to throw on a shift on? The relatively short radius means that it is really fun to squeeze in the piste with, but in combination with the retraction it does not chop in opistat before either. Wide enough to be able to go everywhere, narrow enough not to be busy going on a long trip. I drive it personally as a ride ski and do not regret my choice one second, but it happens that I run it in the piste for family travel too - and it is as wonderful there as well. This ski does everything from clean cuttings in Hummelbranten to Stora Sarektraversen.

Sure, as a piste ski it would have been to have longer active edge, and as a ski for pure lift-borne riding, it would have benefited from having a little more mass behind it. For rock droplets and high speeds, it would have served little on having a slightly longer tail with tailrocker - but as a well-balanced allrounder I am doubtful that it will be better.

I'm pulling myself to put 5 stars, but had I been able I had easily put 4.5 / 5.

Weaknesses:
"Jack of all trades, master of none". It is probably the only thing that can be said - for those who want super-specialized skis this is not the right choice.

Summary:
Possibly the perfect ski to throw on a shift on and drive to exactly everything. A very well-balanced ski, possibly with a certain focus on being easy to make it easier to ride, but far from extreme in that respect.

Model year: 2016
Riding style: Most touring, but also some pistmys with the family.
Length on the ski: 184 cm
Riders weight: 80 kg
Riders length: 180 cm

Strenghts:
Skis that you will quickly get safe with.
Salomon MTN is just what I'm looking for in a ski trip, easy to ride on all bowls.
The skid also works well in the piste, keeping the cutter well in normal running. Flows well in pillows with regard to width and the length I have (177cm). A good ski that I bought for my top trips, but after a season on them, I can say that they have been hanging for many days in the ski slopes as well.

Weaknesses:
It's an easy skiing for top trips so of course it turns out to be awkward in bad conditions such as harvested piste / offpiste. Really deep pillows you have to be left on the skis to keep the flow. The same thing in ice pist is difficult to hold.

Summary:
I recommend this ski trip to top trips.

Model year: 2017

Strenghts:
You can say pretty light, good flex that gives a nice swing in a short swing.

Weaknesses:


Summary:
Have gone four top trips so far with the skis and experienced most of it in leash conditions except for lack of crowds ....... clear that it does not give the same flow in the powder as a wider ski but the flex is well tuned and invites to wonderful pumping with good flow . What one lacks in width down comes as an advantage uphill, easy to get pressure and fasten even on hard packed on a steep slope, which is often significant with the struggle with a wider ski.

In the slopes I can say that I am very impressed! :-) has been driving for two full days in a hard and relatively icy lime embankment has run everything from big carving turns at full speed to tight short turns with good bite and a lot of "pendulum". not once have I experienced that the ski "folds down" itself. rather the opposite, several times I "got off the gas" even though the ski has had more to give. Absolutely wonderful swing in short turn, where it is easy to operate the ski and get a smooth cut. There is a high probability that I will run on these when I take my week as a ski instructor :-)

Late Edit:
Actually drove a few days on these as ski instructor in Verbier last winter (2018/2019), worked canon considering how well they deliver and in piste :) As a reference it can be mentioned that I without "bombed" down for classic torture in verbiage in a blissful blend of wind-packed cold snow and humps ......
