The outgoing QST 99 left big shoes to fill, so Salomon went huge on a replacement and absolutely stomped the landing. The Salomon QST 98 Skis bring a fresh freeride philosophy to the mid fat range with an all new shape that takes its cues from QST's new big brother, the QST Blank. There's noticeably more rocker and taper in tip and tail, a tighter radius, and a looser, more pivoty feel than their forefathers - think easier tail release, effortless slarves, and more playful riding in featured terrain. But don't worry, they still know how to rail on edge, with Salomon's new Double Sidewall Technology for added grip and power transmission. If you're in the market for a fun-loving everyday ripper, you can call off the search - you just found your forever ski.
All Terrain Twin Rocker – Directional profile with rocker in the tip, camber underfoot, and rocker in the tail.
Poplar Full Woodcore – A woodcore from tip to tail offers optimum stability on snow and powerful rebound. Maximizes ski-to-snow contact and filters vibrations.
Carbon Powered C/FX Carbon Flax Weave – C/FX technology is elevated to the next level of performance by being supercharged with two times more carbon and balanced with basalt to keep its superior dampening and vibration absorption properties.
Cork Damplifier – Cork is three times more absorbing than Koroyd. Using it in the tip of the ski enables a high level of vibration absorption and dampening with even less weight.
