The MTN Explore 88 is a sweet option for resort skiing on groomers, hut trips and spring ski touring. We are impressed with the high amounts of both pop and dampness found in the lightweight MTN Explore series. Salomon uses a Karuba wood core shaped with their 3D Spaceframe technology to reduce core and cap material in strategic areas to lighten weight and add more flex. The wood core is layered with their C/FX technology which is a combination of carbon fiber and flax woven together to add strength and stability, yet dampen the vibration that comes standard with carbon. The result is a really smooth and fun turn that stays damp in the apex and pops you out towards the next. The 18 meter turn radius is perfect for playing with different medium and short radius turns. The Explore 88 is purpose built for the backcountry with a tail groove for secure skin attachment.
Reviewers say this ski is solid and light with great maneuverability. Grab a pair of MTN Explore 88s and enjoy the ride!
Demo setup comes with Dynafit Radical ST 2.0 bindings with brakes, toe and heel adjustment plates for different size boots, and Salomon skins.
This particular demo is in excellent shape and ready to shred spring snow!
