Ski review Salomon S/Race SL Pro

At the 2022/2023 WorldSkitest the skis in the category „Race SL“ were closely evaluated at Silvretta Montafon. Tester’s opinion: "The "Salomon" thinly missed the victory podium. Our testers were particularly impressed by the fast, short turns at high speeds. In addition, the "S/Race SL Pro" conserves the strengths of the skiers and never loses the required stability. For this performance, the racer received a well-deserved "very good"."
