The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

Salomon QST 98 is best for advancing intermediates to experts wanting a versatile, one ski quiver with impressive flotation.

Great for
  • Turn easeTurns initiate easily without sacrificing high speed stability.
  • DurabilityMost durable top sheet and core materials.
  • High speed stabilityRemains stable even at high speed.
  • VersatilityIdeal for one ski quiver with varied performance.
  • FlotationImpressive flotation, top of the pack in its category.
Good for
  • PlayfulnessOffers a nice balance of playfulness and stability.
  • CarvingDecent at carving, but doesn't stand out.

The Salomon QST 98 is back this season with a slightly more freestyle design, while still be able to handle high speed skiing and do well on hard snow. This ski is made for advanced skiers who want access to the whole mountain and performance in all conditions. Reinforced with carbon, flax, and titanal, the QST 98 is stable and damp at high speeds and can hold its edge well. 98mm underfoot with decent rocker in the tips and tails, this ski shines off-piste, in the trees and powder, and really allows skiers to push limits on and off the trails.

Key Features:

  • C/FX and Cork Damplifier – Salomon adds a full layer of blended carbon and flax to the ski, along with cork in the tips and tails to keep the ski very damp without excess weight. The cork in the tips/tails helps prevent chatter at high speeds, while the C/FX layer increases torsional stiffness and stability throughout the body of the ski.
  • TI Binding Reinforcement – A section of Titanal is added edge to edge in the center section of the ski to really increase energy transference and stability underfoot, especially when carving and getting the ski on edge.
  • Full Sandwich Sidewalls – Using full sidewalls through the entire ski, the edge grip is greatly increased and also creates a more precise skiing experience for more technical terrain.

Extremely helpful for first time customer!

I just recently started snowboarding and finally committed to getting my own gears instead of renting. Nick was above and beyond every step of the way! He was able to provide the best recommendations in terms of both quality and skill level while being conscious of my budget. I ran into a bit of a hiccup when I tried price matching with curated and missed out on a deal unfortunately. However, Nick was ever persistent and did everything in his power to get me some store credits which eventually helped me get an even better deal than the one I tried to price-match originally! Highly highly recommend Nick for anyone who is looking to pick up some quality Snowboard gears that are best suited for you while being budget-friendly!!

We’ve always used Jake in the past and we’re disappointed that he is no longer with the company. We were matched up with Garrett and he did not disappoint. Garrett was able to find the board my son wanted and price match to another company that was having a sale. Looking forward to working with him again.

I know nothing about snowboards and my son asked for a board for Christmas. We have been through a lot this year personally and just trying to make the holidays a bit more special for our son. The help I received from Vince was Incredible. He helped me put a board together that my son has been talking about. Well, it will surely be a surprise for him! Vince's knowledge was so helpful. He gets it! He knows what the younger ones want but helped me put it all together! Truly thankful!!! I highly recommend Vince!

I arrived on Curated's website seeking the best price on ski boots, and more importantly, the chance to chat with a boot-fitter from home. I wanted a second opinion on the options I'd tried on at my local ski shop. I also wanted to get into the nitty gritty details of: my specific fit as double wide, small women's foot; and, the ski boot mechanics as they pertain to how women ski, to the skis I will be driving, to my current ability level, and to the level I intend to progress to. After making clear what I was looking for and sharing my measurements/ skier type with Leo, he put together his recommendations, and then answered every question I had about the items in our chat box with exceptional detail. He even jumped on a phone call to hash out my final choice for my overall set up. I had done hours of my own research prior to this, but to have Leo's one-on-one attention while reviewing a list of options "curated" specifically for my needs was a relief after combing the internet (read-Blister podcasts and Blister summit videos accessible to non-members). I confidently purchased ski boots and bindings for my new skis with Leo's guidance. Nothing about our interaction felt like the in-store sales "ick", when you feel the sales' person is pushing an item on you to make the sale. Instead, Leo was incredibly friendly as we chatted through Technica's W2W program, why he loves super feet, and other topics that gave me layer upon layer of foundational context for making my own informed decision on what to purchase that would work best for me. 10/10 service, knowledge, and efficiency in explaining his recommendations. Thanks so much Leo!!!
