Want an all-mountain destroyer that will happily navigate tight trees and stubborn rock-infested steeps, with enough edge grip to handle the hard groomers on the way back to the lift? The Salomon QST 98 Skis are a winner in this popular category, with weight-saving use of C/FX Carbon-Flax fiber and Cork Damplifier tips and tails to keep swing weight down but smooth performance up.
Freeride Rocker Profile – 26% Tip Rocker / Camber / 22% Tail Rocker
Full Poplar Woodcore – A woodcore from tip to tail offers optimum stability on snow and powerful rebound. Maximizes ski-to-snow contact and filters vibrations.
C/FX Carbon Weave – C/FX is a fiber layer consisting of Carbon and Flax woven together. It combines the strength, stability, minimal weight of carbon with the increased level of dampening of the flax.
Cork Damplifier – Cork is 16 times more absorptive than Koroyd. Using it in the tip and/or tail of the ski enables a high level of vibration absorption and dampening while decreasing weight.
Double Sidewalls Technology – A high density injected piece of ABS underfoot combined with full length sidewalls creates a strong platform underfoot to maximize grip on hard snow.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
