Killian Jornet's powder boards, or lightweight high-performance ski mountaineering skis for the rest of us. The S/Lab skis were developed with Jornet and other Salomon athletes to tackle technical and remote descents with confidence.
The S/Lab X-Alp is a sub 1000 gram ski that is extremely stiff thanks to C/FX Carbon fiber reinforcement. The FX is pun/acronym (acropun?) that stands for Flax woven through the carbon to dampen and reduce vibration that carbon has become infamous for in skis. These light and stiff high performance materials are reinforced in the binding mount area with Titanal and 4 layers monocoque to eliminate concern for screw pull-out. The tips are notched to accept race style tip attachments.
These techy wonders should definitely be on your shortlist for the ultralight ski mountaineering spot in your quiver
