    Fast, light, and ready for fun.

    Salomon built the Equipe 8 Skate Ski to be fast and light and to provide you with plenty of stability for those tough training sessions or long days on the trail. In Salomon's Equipe lineup, the Equipe 8 falls between the Equipe 9, which is built for club racers and elite fitness trainers, and the Equipe 7, which is made for beginner to intermediate skiers to allow them to develop confidence in their skating technique. The Equipe 8, then, is ideal for intermediate to advanced skiers who love getting out there on training adventures without blowing a whole ton of dough on a super-light race ski.

    The Equipe 8 sports Salomon's G4 Zeolit base with a race universal grind, which is created using a low-pressure stone grind that's designed to hold wax and increase the speed of your glide in all conditions. Javelin sidecut and Powered Camber provide well-balanced pressure that increases stability and control while making your kicks and glides more efficient. Salomon built the Equipe 8 utilizing its Densolite 3000 core, which consists of a carbon and fiberglass wrap with a pre-shaped Densolite foam core, which makes for light, responsive, and consistent performance. The end result is one ski that hits all of the bases for a perfect all-rounder.

    Could be lighter and a bit stiffer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I purchased these after skiing on a decades-old pair of Peltonen Supra Cosmic skate skis given to me from a friend which finally got damaged beyond repair. In comparison these skis seem to have very little "spring" to them, and also feel much heavier when skating. Not nearly as lively a ski...I am rather disappointed that 20 years of ski manufacturing technology advancements couldn't create a better product. I will say the ski seems to be manufactured well, and like the way the back tip is manufactured to prevent the layers from separating as it wears.

    love these
