Salomon XW Tornado TI PL + Z12
Released December, 2009
The Pros:Great floatation on deep powder, glides right over it. Run very stable, plow through obstacles easily. Maneuverable both and low and high speeds.
The Cons:Tend to look for an edge if not controlled, not for beginners. Strongly geared towards on-piste, not at all ideal for park and pipe.
The Salomon XW Tornado TI PL + Z12 is an all-mountain ski designed for experts who want en-piste precision with some variable condition control. As the name implies, the Powerline Titanium system is used here to diminish vibrations in the ski, promoting faster acceleration.

Z12 bindings are used with the Protrak system for turning power, and remains Smartrak compatible. The ski uses a double monocoque construction for edge grip and a full wood core to maximize snow contact and rebound. The 3D Stealth tip provides support for all mountain skiing, using a lower flat shape in the shovel to provide improved contact and "roll over" variations.
