Salomon’s top park and pipe offer the Dumonts are new legendary amongst freestyle riders and synonymous as the elite of Salomon’s freestyle production.
Also sporting the latest sidewall construction from Salomon (who were famed for their 20+ year stint at making monocoque skis) the Dumont is powerful, durable, has lots of pop and features a really versatile shape. The shape of this ski really lends itself to all-mountain skiing if not set over the specific park and pipe centre mark – but if set a little back from centre then they will make great skis for strong skiers to tear around the hill ripping tricks.
For pure P&P use then they are fantastic, lots of pop, well balanced weight for spinning and smooth, the sidewall construction really helps to give a smoother feel to the skis and the durability should be much improved with the new construction.
