Salomon BBR 7.9 Skis 2012: Totally new design in sidecut and shape technology, the Salomon BBR 7.9 Skis have an oversized, surfboard shaped tip for floatation in soft snow and terrain absorption, combined with a narrow tail and short radius sidecut for quick, precise carving on piste. This slimmed down version of the BBR will carve precise slalom turns with this ultra quick and short turn radius, and it will float in the deep stuff with a full-out water ski/pin tail sensation. V-Shape is the future, and it’s here now.
