The Research & Design team at Salomon’s Annecy Design Center (ADC) were given the task of building Salomon’s best frontside collection to date and used a variety of highly technological advances to deliver all-mountain toys that amplify the rush we all get sliding downhill, no matter what level of skier we are.

The XDR79 and Aira 76 Skis are designed to tackle a variety of conditions, whether you’re gliding on top of powder, hurling through crud or carving up pistes. Featuring a progressive rockered tip, these skis offer superior dampening abilities across all terrain and easy flotation in mixed and soft snow. On firm, fast pistes, the wood core provides total control. Construction in the ski’s extremities have been optimised, making it light, playful and easy-to-manoeuvre in any conditions the mountain decides to throw at you (the Aira 90Ti weighs only 1,625g, per ski with 162cm length). The Aira 76 received the ‘Top Performer’ award in our Ski Tests for the ‘Best Women’s Skis of 2019 – All Mountain’.

Both the XDR79 and Aira 76 are available to buy at partner Snow+Rock, where members receive a 15% discount.

To celebrate the launch of Ski+board Issue 2, Salomon are providing the XDR79 for men and the Aira 76 for women. All you have to do is answer the simple question below (The all-mountain Ski Tests are found in Issue 2 of Ski+Board magazine (page 76):
