They say

The Salomon Aira 80 Ti is a women’s specific all mountain ski with a focus on carving performance, but designed with more versatility than most 80mm frontside carving skis out there.

We say

This new model from Salomon really made an impact on the team, the overall feedback was very positive. This is a fantastic, reactive, fun ski that’s performs equally well both on and off piste. It manages to feel like a focused carving ski when it is on the piste with high levels of edge grip and strong stability at speed in any type of turn shape. Moving into softer snow conditions the soft tip and wide platform gave it enough float and reaction to be really good fun. Overall this is an exciting ski that is great fun in all conditions and terrain and is a true all mountain ski.

Tester Comments

Eilidh McLeod
I immediately felt comfortable and confident in all conditions on this ski. Performs well in thick, cruddy snow and blasting on the piste.
Lynn Mill
The Aira was one of those skis that you put on your feet and smile. The width of its tip allowed it to perform off piste with float and smoothness, while piste performance wasn’t compromised.
