You must take Salomon PR because it is ... as it is said here: PR is a ski that has taken properties from several areas (pipe, powder, piste) ... If you want a ski just for jibbing in the pipe I would looked for something else. On the other hand, if you want a very good alternative to an all-around ski or free-ride ski resort you will call it, PR is a very good choice in my opinion ...

Went quite a lot on this ski last winter and liked the front door that it really felt Kalle Duck over it.
But it changed quite quickly to become a little favorite to play around.

Does sisådar work mostly? not an expert on anything but if you like playing in the park in the morning and dropping for snowfall in the afternoon, it works great.

Read above that some think AK racket etc. should be replaced with this and it is equally important to ride a bike. Of course, AK will be left.

The ski fits perfectly in Swedish conditions, because it works every day, at cushions you can go on the side without any problems, while all other days you can play in regular piste.
As everyone knows, everyone can not afford to have a ski run for every type of ride, then you do not want to change the day if it would fall a bit of snow either ;-)

Do you think you think it's the new midskid should think about a bit.

But, sure, you have money, buy one for every occasion, because you're a little sad on the slide after a while.

/ Drive G4 or TENEX this winter

It seems that most of the time has already been said about this ski. Got me a couple of 185 long this spring, screwed on a pair of telis bindings and got a pair of fat play skis. Nothing to drive at once, but when the mood is on top and you've been crazy for a while, these guns are!

Does not really matter how Salomon reason. The idea is apparently to replace more or less X-Scream, SuperMountain and AK-Rocket with a single ski. Can understand the idea of ​​making a ski that will do everything on the mountain from steep coulores to pillows to the snow park and most of them look so right. But there is a lot to wonder about. If the idea is that it will act as a weapon for large mountains, why have they only been content with a maximum length of 185 cm? Sure, you no longer need skiing at around 205 but 185 ??? If the P-R is to replace AK-Rocket as a large-scale ski, why did Salomon go down 15 cm in length? Given that the P-R is also quite soft it's even stranger. Additionally, if the edges do not look able to withstand a little (very) strokes, it does not feel like a good choice for those big rides. Doubt that it is this ski that will be underneath the feet of Solomon's team skaters with Davenport and Zachrisson at the head of a peak in Alaska or the like. And that with such hauliers let the model be JP Auclair's pro model, block that criticism. The guy is not directly known for his big field in AK.

Check out K2's lineup for next year. Even they have a Pocket Rocket ski called AK Enemy. But they back it up with "old" AK Launcher and Jibbskid Enemy. Even Völkl comes with a whole series of skis of this type.

It seems that Salomon wants to introduce some sort of unisex ski that will work for everyone. Midskid's return type.

Yes, I've run most of the season on the pocket rocket (185cm); -and I have to say that! salmon surprises again! good in air, good in powder (of all depths and categories), good in running off piste, good in "normal pist" .... also keeps relatively stable at high speed, just remember to lie on the cutting edge! all in all: -sy good! two things to remember for those who buy these:
1) Remember to keep the edges squared ...
2) Avoid ice-cold conditions ...

do you realize it's this skiing for those who really like to play in the mountains, whether in the park or in the coloires !!! morsomt!

Then you have got a pair of Pocket Rocket. Has installed the new telemark binding from the Norwegian Link on P-R. The first day was on an icy hill. They fought like one could expect of such a ski. Not 100% edge grip and a little tricky but still approved! Next time the orgasm was close .. 20-30 cm fresh snow and about 0 degrees, that's quite heavy snow.
P-R just floats on the heavy snow, you can drive incredibly fast and surf in big turns without any problem. SO YYYY FAT !!!!!!!!!!! In the ground when it's a bit soft, they also work very well. They may seem a bit slow at the start until you get used to the wide width and change the technique a bit ... As Telemarkski, P-R works superbly. Looking forward to thundering in the summer, sløsh on the string for summer !!!!!!!

Certainly! It's tough, but why? Probably because no other ski looks like PK. But (I do not know this) wait 1 year or 2, there will be more marks to make similar skis if it is good for salmon. Just watch the first thousand! how tough is it now, and how tough was it one year after it came out, when half of all brands had twinns!
But okay, now it's tough!
But how does it swing? When you put it on the right side, it swings first to the right and then, after a second, it comes to the left with a damn pressure! Should not it be easy to turn around one edge per edge?
The pipe then? Well ... Heavy, clumsy and generally disturbing.
Big Air? Just like in the pip! 360, but then? No, it does not want to spin more than 1 revolution (1.5 max). And then it sounds so much when you land ... (if it's not 2 dm wet sugar or powder)
Pudding then? Yes ... maybe, but if you want to cushion, there's actually a whole lot of better skis you can choose.

The last question and the comment: Why mix everything and remove the best with the jib, pistachio and puderskidan? I mean, for that price you can buy a really good jibbskida and a really good puppy ski!


Neglected Salomon :(


(when do you mix the lengthwise side?)

Borrowed these for years a day. They are so damn the bells that you can start crying. They had coarse steel edges, which might be important with a waist of 90. Runs them on ice, soft to fine snow and finally wasting. No weaknesses. Can you jump, go fast. Short / Long Swing. Just to go deep and decide.
Tested Length 185.

This ski I drove during v.9 for years and can say that this works incredibly well. It works well in the big jumps but also in the pipes. It has an incredible flow in the fog and the air control is something huge. big plus is that it is very startling. It will probably work well just the one in our snow but it may wait ...
