today i was skiing and i landed switch on a table, after i reverted around my ski felt funny so i took a look at it. above my toe peice on the base of my ski, the outside edge had seperated from the ski bending the base down, the seperation is about 7cm long. this DID NOT HAPPEN BECAUSE OF RAIL DAMAGE.
i was wondering if this has happened to anyone else with salomon lab skis, it most definently looks like a MANUFACTURE DEFECT, and has nothing to do with the fact that salomon uses a foam core.

well for one that really sucks you broke your skis, secondly you shouldnt buy salomon, thirdly warranty them

Pete is currently sulking around Mt. Hood, shooting with Poor Boyz Productions and hitting on Kristi Leskinen. She hates guys, Pete lamented, so it’s not going good. Apparently Canada isn’t the only thing that’s tough for Pete to get into.
It may be warrantied. You have to bring it to a Salomon dealer to send it in. If they are a large enough account with Salomon and you are good friends with the shop owners, you'll get a new pair in a week, otherwise I don't know what will happen...they may call it impact damage.
i doubt that they will warrenty it b/c it broke from extreme stress (jumping) and even though the skis are designed for that, it doesnt always work. keep us posted definetely though. i'd like to see how this goes
i sent them back today, so i can't show pictures. they guy at the shop who works with salomon talked to an RA (i don't know what that is) and explained that the break wasn't from rail damage or missuse, so hopefully it works out. if not, i'll just have the rep who i got the skis from help me out. i'll keep everyone posted tho

My 1080s from last year have an edge crack, and the shop told me I have to pay $20 to send to for warranty, at which point they may or may not (most likely) will warranty them. Should I even bother, or is it a waste of $20?
^ The labs are made in Salomon's race labs where they make their downhill skis. The bases are different. I'm pretty sure the foam is a little different, but I think the only major difference besides the graphics is that the base is a whole hell of a lot faster (and more expensive) = not necessarily good for rails.
And I doubt he paid the full $900, they are on getboards now for 400...
