Perhaps the most versatile width in touring skis is the 95-100 mm range, and Salomon has zeroed in on this category with the exceptional Salomon MTN Explore 95 Skis. Wide enough to handle deep snow tours in winter, but light enough for longer yurt trips or big hill objectives, the MTN Explore 95 comes through with real performance at speed and on harder snow due to full vertical sidewalls in the carve zone and the addition of CFX Superfiber - a woven strip of carbon and flax over the Karuba wood core - that gives the ski both power and dampness. A few runs on this 1400 gram rocket and you'll be amazed by how well it rides compared to other skis in its weight class.

  • Rocker Type 
    • MTN Rocker - Moderate tip rocker, camber underfoot, and an almost flat tail 
    • Carve Zone - The traditionally cambered section of twin rocker skis, where the sidecut is focused for more power, energy and edge grip.
  • Shape 
    • Hook Free Tip Taper - Smooth tip taper combined with five point shape enhances directional stability in fresh snow without diminishing floatation or ease of turning. 
    • Tail Taper - Sharp tail taper lets you slide the tails when necessary while maintaining stability for drops. 
    • G-Spot - Coordinated sidecut and rocker profiles focus edge hold directly underfoot for better hold while skiing and improved grip while skinning.
  • Construction - 
    • Karuba Core - Lightweight laminated 3D full woodcore with excellent liveliness and durability
    • CFX Superfiber - A strip of woven 60% carbon fiber and 40% flax is laid over the top of the core during construction, adding both strength and smoothness. 
    • Honeycomb Tip - Lightens the ski at the tip for improved swing weight 
    • Spaceframe 2.0 Construction - Provides power where needed when skinning up and skiing down.
    • Full Sandwich Sidewalls - Vertical ABS sidewall construction delivers superior edge hold on harder snow.
