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.

Zach Sarantakes tested this product
This ski is great for the advanced and almost reckless skiers. People who like to go fast, stop on a dime, turn hard, tackle moguls and catch a little air off them too. I was hitting the same run over and over where I started with a jump, then hit 40 mph, stopped hard, and then sent it down a... Read more

The Salomon QST will be a great all-mountain ski at the 98 underfoot. It will perform fantastically as a groomer cruiser and still be able to lay down some carves once the day starts. The QST will be a relatively soft ski for being in that all-mountain class but rips incredibly well through softer groomers and new snow. Great all-around... Read more

Ian Scott tested this product
The Salomon QST 98 ski is a great all-mountain ski for anyone skiing out west in most conditions or even east-coast skiers when it has snowed recently. Despite a lot of rocker on this ski, it still can be carved on fresh corduroy with confidence, making this ski a versatile option. It feels very eager to make quick turns and... Read more
Ideal for
  • Very quick and easy to turn. Makes moguls feel like a breeze.
  • Extremely versatile in a broad range of conditions from a lack of snow, to up to a foot of fresh snow.
  • Playful and fun to pop and jump around the mountain, but holds up to some strong skiing.
Not ideal for
  • Carving performance doesn't match skis with more metal.
  • There are skis that can handle extremely hard charging better.

It was a nice surprise to run into Jared again when I visited curated.com this year. Last year Jared was really helpful providing some advice regarding a question I had for one snowboard spec, and I knew he was very knowledgeable. This year, he helped me make a decision on the snowboard I purchased so it was great to have met with him again online and count with his help.

I’m a very particular person and throughout my time with curated she stuck with me the whole time. Prior to getting Sarah as my expert I had someone else who left me the second after we began talking! Sarah stuck with me and helped out even after I bothered her all day. We had many exchanged messages and throughout our time she kept a lively attitude and cracked jokes the whole way through. Sarah was very fun to talk with and I hope she’s able to continue to make a difference in the skii/snowboard community.

This process was so easy! I had been dragging my feet about getting new gear mainly because I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted or needed. After a short conversation with Henry about the type of skier I am, my location, and mountains I frequent he was able to provide me with a few different options, top picks, and why he thought they would be right for me. I will definitely be recommending him to my friends and family!
