The Salomon W-Max is a fantastic carving ski for women looking for a very quick ski edge to edge with smoothness and stability. Salomon's Oversized Active Contact Sidewalls deliver energy directly to the edges of your skis that increases edge hold and responsiveness. A Full Ti Backbone gives you even more power when slopes can get icy, or when you really want to go fast. The W-Max also utilizes a Powerline Carbon Construction that absorbs negative energy and vibrations that keep your edge contact and smoothness to a maximum. Salomon's Light Density Woodcore is loaded with energy and pop, but will not weigh the ski down. A small amount of rocker in the tip will initiate turns very quickly and the camber underfoot will spring you into your next turn. If you are looking for an excellent carving ski that will not be overly demanding the Salomon W-Max will be the perfect choice.
