The all-new X-Drive 7.5 is an all mountain carving ski intended to be the softest and most forgiving out the Frontside All Mountain series. Semi-Sandwich Sidewall construction utilizes ABS plastic, designed for edge grip and an easier, more maneuverable turning experience. All Terrain Rocker 2.0 lifts the tail up and off the ground, designed to absorb varied conditions and maneuver better, while the tail is slightly lifted as well, designed to absorb chatter and other vibrations. RKS uses 3D composite fiber, designed to stabilize rockered zones. Ti Laminate utilizes a layer of titanium, designed for stability and powerful turns. For something similar from Salomon, check out one of the other X-Drive models from the Frontside All Mountain series. Salomon, based in Annecy, France, was founded in 1947. Its U.S. headquarters are in Ogden, Utah.
