Salomon QST 118
Salomon QST 118
The well loved Salomon QST 118 Skis are back for a return engagement, and they're not just playing covers, either - there's plenty of room for new material and originality when you slap on a pair of these "born for powder days" boards.
As with the other members of the the QST clan, the 118 loses weight and gains confidence with the addition of Koroyd tips and tails and new C/FX³ (a carbon and flax weave laid over the top of the core). We could go on, but the awesome float of these ski's 118mm waisted design speaks for itself in more than a foot of fresh.
We're reserving a pair of Shifts for our pair and booking tickets for Japan in January already...
Twin Rocker – Long, medium height rocker profile at the tip and tail enables easy pivoting with maximum flotation and maneuverability in powder. The ski retains a long contact zone on edge with camber in the middle of the ski for stability and edge grip.
Carve Zone – The traditionally cambered section of twin rocker skis, where the side-cut is focused fro more power, energy and edge grip.
Hook Free Taper – This ski has a 5 point sidecut, where the tip and tail taper in the narrow at the extremities for easier turn initiation and steering in soft and variable snow conditions.
Spaceframe 3.0 FR – Bi-directional design philosophy built to perform in powder and soft snow, thanks to twin rocker and a Koroyd tip and tail.
Waist Width: 118
Inverted 3D Woodcore – Internally milled Woodcore.
Koroyd Honeycomb Tip & Tail – The lightest extremities for better flotation, less inertia for easier steering and more control while increasing dampening and shock resistance.
C/FX³ – Unique prepreg fiber layer consisting of Carbon, Basalt and Flax woven together, running the full length of the ski. Combines the incredible strength and minimal weight of carbon fiber for stability and reinforcement, with an increased level of dampening and vibration absorption above and beyond anything found on traditional carbon and light ski constructions. Patented and exclusive to Salomon.
Ti Power Platform – Titanal insert edge-to-edge.
Pulse Pad – Two layers of rubber elastomer in the tip, tail and underfoot give shock absorption and improve durability of ski.
Full Sandwich Sidewall 360° – Full sandwich with ABS sidewall construction extending around the entire sidewall length for increased ski/snow contact, added strength and great terrain adaptation.
Total Edge Reinforcement – A fiber reinforcement directly on the edges that provides edge stiffness for improved durability and grip.
Binding Compatibility - We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
