Salomon bills the new Remix as a park twintip with all-mountain versatility. Low tip and tail rocker is designed to make it easy to pivot for park tricks and switch riding, but with moderate sidecut it will hook up and carve readily. It's a metal-free laminate construction with a full wood core and grippy vertical sidewalls. Pulse Pad rubber modules above the edges cushion shocks and reduce vibrations. Extra-wide edges, connected across the width of the ski with a reinforcing lattice of wire, are built to withstand rail-grinding abuse. Fans of the French brand will notice that Salomon significantly consolidates its line for 2013-14, eliminating redundant models (including several BBRs and the narrower Rocker/Rockettes) and focusing on two key freeskiing lines, Rocker2 and the new Quest family. While the Rocker2 skis (widths of 108 to 122 mm) still offer a more newschool, looser, twin-tip type of performance, the Quest series (88 to 115 mm) offers a more directional, secure, carve-ready performance. Meanwhile, the hard-snow/carve-oriented Enduro line, a tester favorite for frontside applications, returns with East- and groomer-friendly 80 and 85 mm waists.
