Description

When the Lord Ski isn’t skiing beside you, it carries you.

Ruling off-piste and on, Salomon’s Lord Ski collects taxes in the form of top-to-bottom runs everywhere from the morning cords to the deeps in the mountains nooks and crannies. And the coffers are full. The Lord’s full wood core lays down firm justice with smooth rebound and control, while the Edgy Monocoque construction increases torsional rigidity and cuts weight. Salomon gave the Lord a semi-twin tail for greater control while your railing, but the raised tail still loves riding switch. This all-mountain ski can spell versatility five different ways.

Considering the Salomon Lords for all...

Considering the Salomon Lords for all around and backcountry ski. I ski mostly in part, but use a Diamir binding and make one yearly backcountry trip. How do these perform off-piste? Specifically I am asking about their weight and forgivability on the ascent, as it is clear it does just fine on the descent. Thanks

Responded on

I would consider this to be a pretty light ski, due to its smaller dimensions, so I think it will keep you happy on the climbs.

I've been skiing Volkl AC30s for the last...

I've been skiing Volkl AC30s for the last two seasons and loved them for on piste. My shop said that today was the last grind that they'll do on them so, I'm starting to look for my next pair. Lord came with a high reccomendation from the shop as a slightly less stiff ski that would be more comfortable for my love of the east coast trees. My volkls are 163's and I'm comfortable ripping past everyone on blues and towards the mid/front of the pack on harder stuff. My question is about length. Were I to purchase a new set of AC30's I'd bump up to a 169 (if it existed.) In transitioning to Lords, if I want a slightly larger feel would the 169's do it or, because of the rocker and slightly softer flex, should I be looking at 177's?

Responded on

I think the 169 will be the way to go, as the amount of rocker is so slight. I think the 177 would probably be more of a jump than is necessary for the Lord.

is their a right and a left?? when you have them on is the design suppose to match at the bottom??

Responded on

No, the design of the ski is symmetrical, so as far as the performance of the ski goes there is no right and left ski. The only difference is the graphics

Nice pair of french fries

These are awesome skis, they were the first pair of skis that I had that used rocker technology and I have been very impressed. I ended up in Salt Lake City for a few days and decided to bring my boots just in case it snowed, Alta received a dump so I headed to the hills and demo'd these skis for a couple of days. Very impressive, the tips floated up without effort in deep powder and crud. On the groomers they carved nice tight turns and wide sweeping turns, and they stayed stable at speed. The twin tips made for some fun switch riding. Those two days in Alta I rode everything for race skis to powder skis and these compared well to all, very true All Mountain skis.

Gift report!

I bought the 'Lords' for my 18 yr old son. He'd been waiting since the end of last season when we'd rented a number of models over 3 days. He's an intermediate skier tending toward aggressive as he improves. We're in the northeast where we generally see hardpack and granular/ice. He loved the rentals and after several outings this year is thrilled with the new skis (and new graphics too). The price... What can you say? The manufs. have created a virtually closed, price fixed market so all you have left for differentiation is the service of the seller. This was my first attempt at buying this kind of product via the net. Backcountry.com really delivered! I'd have 0 (zero) qualms in recommending this product and/or the backcountry.com!

It is a play on the lord collecting taxes. It is a place where you put valuables or money. Nothing to do with the ski, everything to do with the name.

These skis rip

Upgrading from some old Public Enemies, the Lords are a Godsend. I ski everything all over the mountain and these handle it all like a pro. Stable on big mountain steep slopes and cliffs, nimble through bumps, and have that bit of All-terrain rocker for some float in the pow. These sticks even make skiing groomers fun! They edge amazingly. Overall, a perfect ski for any all-mountain ripper that likes to dab more into the extremes. And sick graphics to boot.

only used the lords on groomers so far because i live in wisco but they seem excellent, quick edge to edge. i'll be testing them off trail and in bumps at steamboat in february. they're super cool looking.

Your weight, ability, and skiing style/where you ski will help everyone in recommending a length to you.

Why is Salomon, a French company building...

Why is Salomon, a French company building skis in Austria? I know that they're owned by the same parent company, but I didn't think that meant shared manufacturing. I'm pretty sure it's not less expensive to make them in Austria. Does this mean the end of French Salomon innovation? While it's built in the same mould, does it necessarily ski the same as the previous ski? Will the next generation, still ski like a French ski? Are these the first of the new and oft feared generation of 'Atomolons'? :)

Responded on

While many companies are having their skis made in China to save money, I believe Salomon's answer is much better. By sharing a plant in Austria with their sister company, they have helped keep costs down and while maintaining quality (higher quality could even be argued). The skis are constructed exactly as they were in France, the difference I felt with this ski is actually due to the addition of "edge armor" that the previous model didn't have. Salomon Headquarters are still in Annecy, France. This is where Salomon innovation has always been and where it still is today.

Watch Out for Trees

I demoed these skis last weekend up in NH in 177. They were a little shorter than I usually ski, but skied WAY shorter. They felt very lightweight and easy to turn, were great in the bumps and made short radius turns with ease. They held tight on the groomers and were fairly damp and stable. They never let go on the hard-pack or ice but they also didn't inspire a tremendous amount of confidence. Last word is this would be a great fun ski to take around the east coast woods, zipping in and out of trees. If you stick mostly to groomers or charge big lines I would look elsewhere.

Not that this should really count but th embroidered logo was also pretty cool.

I just purchased these skis in 185cm because they looked like the right ski for what I would like to do.

Currently I am living in Minnesota, and am looking to progress from an intermediate to advanced skier. Also, I may be moving westward in the near future. I am 6' 220lbs - and am wondering where should bindings be placed?

Responded on

Hey Djl,

Great ski choice, super fun and you got a great size.

The listed midsole mark of that ski (185cm) is 835 mm from the tail. They list that measurement because sometiems there can be imperfections in the graphic that lead to differetn midsole marks.

I'd mount then 835mm from the tail down to 830mm. The shorter you go, the more "traditional alpine" type set up you'll have.

Hope this helps,
Nick

Another sizing question here. These look...

Another sizing question here. These look like great all around boards. I'm an advanced skier but, not as powerful or aggressive as I was 20-30 years ago. I'm about 5'9" (175 cm) and 150 lbs (68kg) and probably ski 60% off piste in our pacific NW crud. Am currently skiing on 180 cm Atomic Beta Rides. Would the 169s or 177s work better for me?

Hey im a 18 yearsold 6'2 and ive been snowboarding for 5 years, i recently had reconstructive knee surgery and found snowboarding to hard, Ive tried skiiing once a few years ago and I didnt seem to have a problem with it. Im considering 3 skis, the salomom lords, the salomon twenty twelves, and the 4frnt msp, I want to use them for park, groomers and powder skiing. I was wondering if you guys could just help me out a little with trying to find the best ski.


Thanks

Responded on

You have really stumped us dude. These are all great skis that can do a lot. Let's go in order.
As you can see the Salomon Lord is a rather skinny ski. I don't think that it has that much rocker and the 87 mm under foot does not allows for all that much float. But the ski still does an awesome job on the hard stuff and it should be pretty poppy in the park.
The Salomon 2012s are brand new this year and have gotten great reviews. Mike Douglas has shown in a few episodes of Salomon Freeski TV that those skis are great all around. They do a great job when it comes to floating and since they are park specific they will excel there the most. Overall they are a soft ski that will be fun to throw around.
Now I don't know much about the 4frnt MSP but I think that they are more of an overall all mountain ski that will do well just about anywhere.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck!

Hello,
I'm advance skier, 182cm 70kg. Have spend most time skiing in Europe on-piste on slalom skis. Prefer small-medium turns. At the moment i have the Fischer RC4 Race (160cm).
I want to get the Lords as an all mountain ski to improve my technique in the rough/powder and just have fun on the whole mountain.

I was wondering which size to get, 169cm or 177cm... do you guys have any suggestions?!

Thanks

Responded on

Hey Ivo,

Since you're on a race ski already (160cm) and you like more slalom style turns, the 169 would be an easier transition but if you're looking to improve your all mountain technique, in more variable conditions. I would suggest the 177cm.

I say this because you clearly have the height and weight to handle a ski of that size and it really isn't THAT big. You have the ability to ski it and will appreciate the additional length when charging rougher conditions.

THanks,
Nick

I am looking at buying the Salomon Lords...

I am looking at buying the Salomon Lords in a 177cm. I am 6'1 and 83kg with a reasonable ski abaility, groomers / moguls / off piste. Would you recommend the 177cm Lords ? Also what is a good Salomon binding to match this ski?
