Technical info:
Stella has the widest tip in the test, by far. There is a lot of sidecut in the waist and the setback is long. It is stiffer than many of the other skis in this test, with a flex of average stiffness and a somewhat softer tip. This model is three millimeters wider than the same model we tested last year. Stella is a medium heavy fibreglass and carbon fibre sandwich.

On snow:
It is a ski that is easy to maneuver on well groomed slopes at medium speed. All the test riders commented that the edge grip could have been better, and it is not among the best at speed. Perhaps it´s the diminishing sidecut that causes this impression. In return, this is one of the most maneuverable skis in the test and it floats well. Salomon Stella is a good choice for relatively fresh riders who are looking for a ski that works well on and off the groomed slopes.
