This was one of the highlights of the Salomon range for us on test this winter, the RS800 Ti skis are almost, and when I say almost I mean 95% as good as, the famous XT800 but are nearly £100 cheaper. Still feels really positive turning at speed on the hard pack snow, maybe a little less grip than the higher model but only if you are pushing really hard! Performance off piste is just as good as the dimensions are similar so really worth a look if you want to save a few pounds or are stepping up from a more basic model and worried that the top of the range models might be money you don't need to spend
