Salomon MTN Summit 79 (Backcountry Touring Ski 2021/2022)

Product Summary

Due to its lighweight construction the Salomon MTN Summit 79 is easy to handle not only downhill but also during longer ascents. The Salomon MTN Summit 79's full retail price is €699.99. The Ski costs roughly €130 more than the average price of all Backcountry Touring Skis, making it a real premium Ski. There is no speed limit for this ski. Aggressive skiers pushing the ski to its limit will be fascinated. The Backcountry Touring Ski prefers perfectly groomed runs over fresh powder. However due to its medium-width waist, this ski is also a good shout for riders who like to venture off piste from time to time. The ski is available from 158 to 170cm.

The ski in details

Take backcountry to the summit with this ultra-lightweight ski. Designed for skiers who skin 90% of the ascent, then climb the last 10% before skiing steep couloirs and faces, this is the ski for people who push all the way to the top, and don't back down on the descent.

Strength
This lightweight ski is reinforced with C/FX, fiberglass and flax layers positioned to provide superior strength to weight ratio and tip resistance in narrow couloirs.

Reliability
The binding area is reinforced with both a titanal insert and a monocoque 1-layer reinforcement, ensuring reliable binding hold, even in high-torque situations.

Lightweight
Superlight Karuba woodcore, with TPU Koroyd tip for absolute minimum weight.

Technologies

3D Karuba full Woodcore
The pre-shaped 3D full Karuba Woodcore provides stability and control while reducing weight.

Monocoque
A single fiber layer structuring the ski and making it more durable. It's light, forgiving and facilitates maneuverability.
