Technical info:
We tested the biggest ski in the test with the lightest bindings in the test. Mountain BC was first launched last year, but this is the first time Fri Flyt tests it. It has low rocker, a lot of camber in the waist and not much sidecut, especially in the back ski. The flex is stiffer in the waist than in the rest of the ski, and the construction isn´t particularly light. Low rocker, almost none in the back ski.

On snow:
The biggest ski in the test feels a little too light, even if the construction isn´t ultralight. Salomon´s super light bindings are not quite powerful enough for a ski of this size. The base area gives good flotation and some stability, but the width prevents good allround qualities, and it doesn´t convince us on hard surfaces. Salomon´s touring ski works well in powder and on good surfaces. As long as the snow is soft it performs well at both low and high speed, in short and big turns.
