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.
- 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.
