Salomon QST 99
Salomon QST 99
The top-selling Salomon QST 99 Skis keep the win streak alive for 2019 with the addition of a vibration-quelling layer of basalt, while keeping the winning light-but-powerful formula going. The QST is a tremendous choice for a do-it-all ski that handles everything from hard, fast groomers to a foot of fluff with aplomb, and functions well as a sometime touring ski as well.
Free skier Magazine’s comments are:
Our testers all agreed that the QST 99 is a trench-digging machine that isn’t afraid to pop and play across the ski hill. “Very smooth with more of a new school feel to it,” commented Mikey Wechsler. “Can get really smeary if you want but still a confident carver.” A directional shape, a titanium insert in the binding area, full ABS sidewalls and camber underfoot allow the QST 99 to be an absolute barn burner on the groomers and hardpack. On the flip side, nose rocker and slight early rise in the tail make it super nimble, and carbon stringers with interwoven flax fibers in the core ensure an ultra-smooth ride no matter the snow conditions.
All-Terrain Rocker 2.0 – With a slight tip and tail rise, All-Terrain Rocker 2.0 adds an extra dimension of versatility and control for all mountain skiing. Camber in the middle of the ski and full length contact guarantees strong edge grip, stability and power for hard snow and piste skiing. In addition to the excellent terrain absorption and intuitive turn initiation, the slight twin rocker also allows the ski to pivot much easier when ski is flat, increasing control and maneuverability in all conditions.
Carve Zone – The traditionally cambered section of twin rocker skis, where the side-cut is focused fro more power, energy and edge grip.
Lengths: 167, 174, 181 and 188 (not all sizes available in store but can be ordered)
Spaceframe 3.0 AMB – Directional design philosophy built to perform in all conditions thanks to all-mountain rocker and a woodcore that extends into the tail.
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.
Light Poplar Full Woodcore
Koroyd Honeycomb Tip – 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.
Solid, fun ride as a 2nd powder-oriented ski or as 1 ski for the skier that prefers a wider profile for soft snow and cruises on more groomed terrain.
Binding Compatibility - We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
