Im probably going to be hated a bit for this but..
Why cant Simon Dumont just use Salomons in-store models as everyone else on the team seems to be doing. I mean, the guys seems to have some hybrid ski everytime i see him on the screen.
What im trying to say, if the company pays him, give him skis so he can rep their company he should atleast be able to ride their skis without that they had to make "new" skis for him.
The new design + the old model = The exclusive Dumont pro model.
I know the only evidence i could find right away was the Slumdog Illionare edit and to screenshots from EDIAS. But i guess most of you know what im talking about.
sparknotes: Simon should ride whatever Salomon throws after him.
It's not like he's not repping Salomon and it's not like he can't ski the newest models either. If you look at the skis you can clearly tell that they're Salomon, so he's still repping the company. Plus, the skis he uses are probably suited for his own reasons like personal preference.
He likes to old model better obviously, which makes sense since the old model is better. They "hybrid" his skis cause they want to advertise them still. I don't get why they just don't remake the old model - it was so much fun.

you don't just 'throw' skis at the big names of your brand. i'm sure hes actively involved in their product development. telling a big name what they have to ride is quick way to send them to a rival company. isn't that why candide kept leaving everyone? he wanted to be involved with developing an entire line of skis and his sponsors kept giving him park pro models. so, he bounced between sponsors until he found one that let him be involved in the way he wanted to be. at least, thats how i remember it.
simon is such a sick skier. maybe he is not so good at park but he has pushed halfpipe skiing so far with going hUGE he introduced 1260 to x games. he has started gettin ignant and i think he will be more enjoyable to watch. his skis are sicktoo i don't know why he gets so much hate was he an asshole to some of you? or do you just hate on him because he is good?
Part of his job is to test prototypes and expiriment with ski designs so Salomon can try to change and improve their skis from year to year, so to me it makes sense that he would ride skis that aren't on the market. Plus, if you had the option of having your skis customized exactly how you wanted them and cost wasn't a problem, wouldn't you take advantage of it?
the only reason anyne ever hates on dumont is because hes short...
i thought everyone knew that
Anyway, the hockey jock next to me said "Did you just fucking shit your pants?" I replied "No..." then slowly made my way to the door, with my butt cheeks rubbing tablespoons of ass molasses between their steamy counterparts.
this kid is obviously angry that dumont is a pro and hes not. hell if I were dumont i would ride only custom one of a kinda skis that no one would ever even get to touch just to rub it in the faces of kids like the one that started this thread
why does every creepy faggot on the internet have a house made of shitty fake wood paneling? Seriously if I see a picture of someone eating a cup full of poop, fapping in a horse costume, or slicing their dick in half... there is shitty wood paneling in the background every fucking time.
i dont understand how some people are saying that salomon dosent care i would think that more people would buy them if they knew it was the exact personal choice of simon. him riding the companies skis is proof that they will perform and without that i know i would be less likely to but the ski
Salomon, just like Armada claims and stands by the fact that what they sell is the same thing their athletes use. Just because it has the 2009 topsheet on the 2008 mold, is no reason to hate on the company. That ski is still available. It's just cosmetics
