The all-new Luan is intended to be a softer and more forgiving all mountain ski, focused mainly on groomers and other on-piste terrain. It has a 120 mm tip and 75 mm waist (at 151 cm), and it’s tied with the Kiana as the lightest ski in the Women’s Frontside All Mountain series as well. For something similar, check out the Kiana, Cira, Astra, Iris, and Gemma. The all-new Women’s Frontside All Mountain series focuses on women’s skis intended to go all over the mountain, featuring six different models with waists ranging from 75 mm – 85 mm. Carve Rocker lifts the tip up and off the ground, designed for better turn initiation while the rest of the ski stays flat on the ground. Control Frame is shaped with emphasis on more commonly utilized edge zones underfoot, designed for edge grip. A Comfortech layer is also integrated, designed to reduce chatter from the top of the ski. Salomon, based in Annecy, France, was founded in 1947. Its U.S. headquarters are in Ogden, Utah.
