The 7 Best Alpine Skiing for Man
Bern Sawyer Goggles - Boys'
Ideal for up-and-coming rippers and adults with smaller faces, the Bern Boys' Sawyer Goggle pairs a small-sized frame with the unobstructed visibility of a spherical lens. The spherical lens improves peripheral vision when you're negotiating crowded slopes, weaving through tight trees, and flying down bump-lined black diamonds. The ultra-plush face foam features integrated venting to keep the goggle fog- and condensation-free, especially on warmer spring days.
Each specific frame colorway comes with a lens that's best suited for either sunny bluebird days or socked-in stormy conditions. Pick up the Orange Light Mirror Lens for unobstructed visibility on those super-sunny days or choose the Yellow/Blue Light Mirror Lens for stormy conditions and night sessions under the flood lights.

Bern Camino Zipmold Helmet - Boys'
When he's flying through the air on his board, the Bern Boys' Camino Zipmold Helmet keeps his noggin safe from potential spills, and it does so with a lightweight, comfortable design. Zipmold hard foam is lightweight without sacrificing protective functionality, and the slim shell uses a tapered construction for a better fit. The micro-fleece lined ear flaps help his ears stay warm when the north wind blows, while the adjustable chin strap prevents this lid from coming loose when he needs it the most.
Salomon XDR 84 Ti Ski - Men's
Part of Salomon's XDR series, the XDR 84 Ti Ski is a solid choice for carving every frontside run at your favorite resort. It features the same versatile all-mountain profile as its big brother, the XDR 88, with a slightly narrower waist for days when you know you're not leaving the groomers. A slight rise in the tip and tail assist with turn initiation over varied terrain, while classic camber underfoot gives you quick on-trail response. Like all the sticks in the XDR collection, the 84 features a CFX Superfiber construction, which adds power and precision without weighing you down, and it's equipped with a Ti laminate for additional stability and edge hold when you're speeding down the steeps.
Hi skiers I'm jeff from ski essentials calm this is bobbed our shipping manager from skin essentials comm we are here. Today do another 2018 skier review this. Is the brand-new salomon xd re4 ti. Before we kind of get into our. Experience on the ski a little bit about this line basically it's replacing the. Salomon xdrive collection which you can. Kind of get a sense in the name of the new skis xdr there's some xdrive in. There and it takes some of the. Technology we see in the qst line which. You've seen us through a qsp 99 review. And asked us p 118 review this was the. 92 and essentially it uses a material. Called cfx super fiber which is its flax. And carbon fiber woven together uses. What they call a ti power platform which is essentially a single strip of tit anal. In the qft line and on the xt are they. Carry all that over but they take that. Cfx and the ti power platform and extend. It to the edges of the ski you can kind. Of see, it underfoot they're a little wider platform of cfx and tit anal. So new kind of front side oriented. All-mountain ski bob you spend more time on this than anybody else what was your first impression of the 20 set 2018 salomon x. Br 84 just felt very natural and my. Feeling very easy to control. From the moment i clicked in and that feeling well long holiday lovely. Something that you said while i was taking you with the cameras you uh i think you said something like you liked it as soon as you clicked in yeah I'm not so which i think says well I'd rather ski you can kind of click in and feel the quality of it right away. Now obviously more front side oriented. Then the qsd collection so we hope that. Car to turn pretty well bob you're a pretty. Big guy you carve a pretty powerful turn what you think i didn't feel i pushed it. Pretty hard i didn't feel like about at all i thought it kept up great lot of. Energy out of the tail of the turn and very easy to initiate and held that edge. Throughout it's pretty soft snow but still very impressive awesome so definitely not not a. Slouch in terms of carving no not. Remotely paige definitely is that on the. Groomers all day well and then you and i kind of in. Talking about the ski why when I've been. Looking at the tip shape quite a bit and how that corresponds to its performance. In soft snow bob and i command c in. Another video that we did together of the k2 ikonic 85 ti which came up in. Conversation as a comparison to this ski. But you thought it did a little better off piece than that ski yeah and. I think like you said due to the tip shape just kind of kept that kept the. Front of the ski up on top a little easier and i think it's you know it says. It's one millimeter narrower underfoot but couldn't really tell yeah you know. We had some natural snow on both tests and it stayed you know pretty much on. Top throughout our experience. Yeah it was a it was good very good. Yeah the days the longest day that we tested these it was pretty firm but. It was snowing really hard too, so we got a good mix of conditions that i think. You'll see in the video so pretty versatile ski i think we threw around the word. Oxymoron yeah a lot more onic something. I can't exactly remember what Solomon. Says but they say something along the. Lines of it carves and it floats which. You know is somewhat of a bold claim and. Definitely a theme in the industry right now what i think that's a good way to describe this ski does't you definitely you can throw a lot of words together that sound like oxymorons you know. Lightweight but stable I'd like to heard it said definitely quick but substantial. Wasn't know how when we threw around you so definitely a cool ski so yeah. Brand-new collection of skis its more. Than just a 84 this is the 88 behind us. And then i think it goes all the way down to a 75 with a few others. Models in between they're the 75 being. More of a price point ski an 84 and the. 88 time being the flagship models so. Definitely check them out brand-new ski to help you if you ski it. An xdrive and liked it definitely checks out the. New the new collection from salomon it's. Always exciting to see new technology working work its way into all-mountain carving ski is kind of theme over the. Past few years and, and we think Solomon's done a great job with it. And yeah that's the salomon xdr 80/40 i. Will see you on the slopes and bob liked it so much you might see him on a pair who knows.

Kastle BMX 105 HP Ski - Men's
When it comes to snow, the Kastle BMX 105 HP Ski isn't picky. Whether
you're cutting first tracks into a few fresh feet or hunting through chopped up crud to find some hidden powder fields, it'll give you a smooth and stable ride thanks to its innovative construction and high quality materials. The HP in its name stands for "High Performance" and it takes that queue from the quality of the materials used in its construction. From the base to the sidewalls to the core, you'll find nothing but the best, including a lightweight woodcore made of silver fir and beech, surrounded by dual titanal layers for added dampening characteristics that really smooth out your ride through even the most variable conditions.
This ski's got a 105mm waist width that's definitely at home getting first tracks on a powder day, but has enough versatility to not be relegated to a deep-days-only role. Its camber underfoot ensures edge grip when new snow starts to flatten out into harder packed surfaces, while the rockered tip and tail provide playful float when the deep stuff returns in a couple of days. You've also got Hollowtech technology in the tip reducing swing weight, enhancing stability, and delivering a more powerful edge grip as you soar down the mountain. Tack on a semi-cap sidewall construction for added durability, and you've got a ski that doesn't wait for the conditions to dictate when it gets to charge.
