What are the new 1080s good for anyway?? If salomon was trying to make a park/pow ski I'll say right now that it's a worthless idea. It looks like a pocket-rocketish 1080! Does anyone know what the real purpose is?
Guys,you dont know what your talking about...The freestyle series of salomon is design with the cooperation of the 1080 international freeride team,wich include cusson,dorion auclair....So the day that you will have try the new 1080,you'll see that they are way better than those of this year...A LOT BETTER..
yeah they are..better than this year and better than a lot of skis..i ride bumps with them..im an ex bumper so i didnt really have problem with that..its sure that the old one,less wide were a bit better but anyway i have my 1080 mogul when i wanna ride bumps..
Sorry I have to say I competed on the older 1080 in the past and they were ok, but th enew ones (2003) suck. The tail is slopy, it feels graby and in general not a fun ski any more. Graphics look good, but the ski needs to go back to R&D and fix the problems. Just a personal comment!
hehe..well..the pros that design it like it...you prefer the rossis scracth..design by guys that porlly dont job and may be even dont ski.rossi put the ski on the market with a problem..they are not serious at all..theirs a plate of metal missing under the boot,thats why they all broke!!
salomon rules...pocket rocket and 1080 181!yeah!!
the reason they shaped the 2003 1080's that way is to save weight, and if you have ever ridden the pockets you know how nice it is to save to extra weight.... it's the 'space frame' that makes it look like the pockets...
yea baker, totally. I have this years dorions and theyre wicked. I rode on the pocket rockets but they felt...i dont know.....sloppy. That might just be me, used to the 1080s i dont know. But im hoping theres a difference between 2003 1080's and last season's pocket rockets!
