They say

We say

This is an all new model from Salomon and its fair to say its performance felt completely different from any other Salomon we have previously tested. The level of grip available from this ski is completely off the scale! We were amazed at the edge hold this ski could put out, particularly on hard icy slopes where it was unbeatable compared to other skis we tested in this group. Particularly in short carved arcs this ski was amazing for high grip, bags of energy and generally just great fun when pushed hard. The other great asset of the Blast is that although high performance is readily available, it is exceptionally easy to use at slower speeds and feels really easy to adjust at any point. This is a fantastic new addition to the Salomon range.

Nicko Braxton
Bags of grip! Best short turns of the day, which was the last run and icy. Super quick from edge to edge, very happy on long turns as well.
James Allen
Cracking detuned race ski from Salomon. Push it as hard as you dare! Never gives way on you
