could someone explain what spaceframe is? in the skiboots its the hexagonal holes do they make the boot softer and lighter?
and I have no idea what spaceframe is on the skis
Yes, spaceframes are foam cored. But the spaceframe refers to the way they have more material under foot for stability and less tip and tail for easier turn entry and flexibility. On the top of the ski you can see where the extra material is located.
and how about for the boots? is it like foam under the liners? because I have the Salomon pro model (before spaceframe) and the they have a some pads underneath the liners.
No, spaceframe boots are distinguishable by the hex shaped cutouts on the outside bottom part of the boot. They asymnetrically soften the boot for a flex more appropriate to carving with today's skis and stance.
Bahahaha... or, you could call it the 'elitist snob' cult. Anyways, my family already owns a country club, so no thanks.
yeah i think they've got it. spaceframe on the 1080s for example is the foam core, and spaceframe on the promodel boots are the hexagonal cutouts. i am not sure what purpose they server though.
very foamy foam.
Support the SMP. It's a teen freestyle team that's both good for skiing and for your heart. (ask your doctor if a free 20mg sample of SMP is right for you. do not take if you suffer from instability around children. Side effects include big air, and superlong grinds). Visit www.snowmountainpowder.com for more information.
so thats what the things ong the boots are for? shit i thaught salomon was just retarded
'i just rented good will hunting , how is it?'
'lets put it this way, even matt damon cant make it suck.'
'matt damon? hes in con air right?'
'yes , yes he is.'
spaceframe does not mean 'foam core' spacefreame is a way of putting more material in certain areas and taking it away from other areas in order to make more desireable flex or weight patterns. basically for better performance. in the boots, certain ammounts of material (plastic) are removed some areas. this provides a lower weight and the desired flex that they want. in the skis, they add a little material to the skis. you can see it as the parts that rise up a little that go from the middle towards the tips. ok, now that's salomon's official definition and they believe that it works. i think they need to use different materials to make a good ski. they were closer with the promodels this year b/c apparently they had the same core as their higher end race skis (half wood/half foam). i'm just not a fan of cap construction though. i'd take sandwich any day of the week
and up in yo bitch, is where ya might find me
