Rob Polk wrote a review of Salomon BBR 8.9 Ski on January 29, 2012
I demo'd these BBR 8.9s in 169cm and fell in love. They are a good all terrain sky. They float over just about anything effortlessly. Very forgiving skis. I have K2 Comanches with Salomon bindings and they compare like a base model straight cab pickup truck to the BBRs Cadillac ride. Great skis for beginners to expert. I was able to go places and do things I would have been in trouble with my K2s. Mt confidence shot trough the roof with these things. I'm going to buy a pair this season for sure. These skis made turns in hard pack/icy snow with ease, even when other skiers were spinning out! Moguls, light powder, deep powder, packed snow, ice, and transitioning between any of those conditions are a breeze. Salomon got it right with the BBRs!
