The Salomon Men's BBR 8.9 Freeride All Mountain Skis area a totally new design in sidecut and shape technology. This is a powder ski that carves on-piste. This is a piste ski that floats on powder. Like no other ski ever made, literally 2 skis in one, the BBR adapts to any terrain smoothly and predictably. The full bamboo wood core BBR has an oversized, surfboard shaped tip for floatation in soft snow no matter how deep. No matter what the conditions are, deep powder, crud, or groomers, the BBR 8.9 has a very surfy feel. It's short radius and short effective edge on-piste provide great grip and playfulness on harder snow. The BBR 8.9 has Sandwich Sidewalls for extraordinarily smooth ski/snow contact and great terrain adaptation and performance.
An Oversized Pulse Pad Dampening System has an elastomer layer along the whole edge and shovel of the ski, provides maximum shock absorption from the terrain and smoother ski to snow contact. The ultra-wide V shaped shovel combined with Vertical Sidewalls, a narrow tail and short radius sidecut for quick, precise carving on piste. The 147mm tip gives you more feel, and the narrower 89mm waist provides better grip. Total Edge Reinforcement offers increased durability. The Salomon BBR 8.9 is a perfect ski for someone who is looking to surf the mountain on an under 90mm powder ski and then bring themselves back home on any kind of groomed trail or track.
