The Aira 80 Ti is more of an all-mountain ranger than a wasp-waisted carver. Its poplar wood core is über light, carbon fiber and flax layers provide torsional rigidity, and a metal power plate underfoot stabilizes. It had a unique feel that testers described as “buttery” with an easygoing nature. 

Salomon Aira 80 Ti Value Score: 5.82
