Fly up and fly down. That's the name of the game in competitive Ski Mountaineering racing. Or just a daily tour for Killian Jornet. This is the ski that Killian and Salomon built for the fastest of ascents and powerful, stable descending on big, technical lines
The Karuba wood core is layered with Salomon's C/FX carbon fiber reinforcement. This pre-preg carbon is woven with flax to help dampen vibrations. The tip is TPU Koroyd where wood isn't needed for absolute minimum weight. The result is a really stiff ski that weighs about 700 grams. Tip notches for race skins.
The S/Lab Minim is an awesome race ski for bigger skiers or those that prefer a stiffer ski. Those that ski a race ski everywhere will also like the Minim. Pick up a pair and chase Killian, if only in your mind.

So Cripple Creek was just fantastic Highly knowledgeable and solved a big problem for me. High had a pair of racing skimo skis but had a very very difficult time for downhills. They recommended the Salomon Minim. What a differnence As a college alpine ski racer, I finally had a ski stable at high speed. Just great
