Product Info

With power, stability and float for serious big mountain and backcountry terrain, the 2014 Salomon Q-115 Skis pack a wallop when it comes to all-mountain performance. The Utility Rocker provides a versatile directional design, excelling in all conditions and terrains, while edgy monocoque construction with a wider reinforced edge offers increased durability, improved shock resistance and edge grip. The Q-115 features reduced swing weight in the tip and tail, with a new Honeycomb Tip and Edge Free extremities for increased nimbleness in trees and tight chutes.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Utility RockerSalomon's most versatile rocker profile, excelling in all conditions and terrains, Utility Rocker offers optimal floatation, fluid terrain absorption and directional stability.

Gentle Rise TailA shorter, shallower rise to the tail rocker that increases edge contact and stability.

Carve ZoneThe traditionally cambered section of twin rocker skis, where the sidecut is focused for more power, energy and edge grip.

Sidecut

Hook Free TaperAllowing for easier turn initiation in soft and variable snow, this tip and tail shape slices through difficult snow without hanging up.

Core

Full Wood CoreA wood core that runs from tip to tail offers optimum stability and powerful rebound, with maximum ski/snow contact and reduced vibration

Sidewalls

Edgy MonocoqueEdgy Monocoque offers precise edge grip, no excess material, and efficient energy transfer from skier to snow.

Edges

Wider EdgesThicker edges for increased durability and improved shock resistance

Edge Free ExtremitiesNo edges in the tip or tail area of the ski provide more fluid gliding in powder because edges don't "hang up", and weight is reduced.

Total Edge ReinforcementA fiber reinforcement is laid directly on the edges, improving edge stiffness, durability and grip.

Additional Features

Honeycomb + ABS FrameLighter at the extremities for better floatation, less inertia for easier steering and more control, and increased dampening and shock resistance

Pulse PadThis is an elastomer layer all along the edge and/or along the whole front part of the ski that provides shock absorption and anti-vibration on harder snow.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

    Comments about Salomon Q-115 Skis 2014:

    I bought these skis from the information on the Internet. I did not demo them prior to purchase. I was very pleased with how they handled on powder and moguls. Easy to handle on cut up snow and really good on steep drops. These skis give you confidence in landing the drops and negotiating difficult terrain. They require some concentration on groomed. I found myself crossing tips frequently on groomed. Overall I am very pleased with this ski and look forward to getting many more good days on them.

      Very nice ski for big turns. Does respond to short radius turns, but need to control them more. Overall, a great backcountry ski

        Comments about Salomon Q-115 Skis 2014:

        I was hesitant to buy this ski online without seeing it first, but I'm happy I trusted my instincts. The 115 width floats perfectly in the deep stuff, the longer tip rocker allows you to stay aggressive in pow, and the light tail rocker helps release turns easily and keeps you stable if you land backseated off a bigger cliff. In the narrow shoots, the 185cm length is a little long to side slip some areas, but the solid construction keeps you stable even if balancing between the tip the tail. On groomers/hardpack this handles surprisingly well. The 21m turn radius carves nicely and the closer contact points allows it to be easily controlled. You can smear your turns in the pow and the groom, and although it's not truly twin tipped, you can still ski switch with some control. Overall, a great purchase. Its mainly a pow ski but can still be used throughout most the season, just don't take it out before your area gets a good base.

          Comments about Salomon Q-115 Skis 2014:

          I only have one day on them, and that day was not a deep day by any stretch, so read into the 5 star rating accordingly. My one day was 3-6 inches over crust at Keystone (go figure), plus a hike into one of the bowls accessible from the Outback.

          Like a Rossi Super 7, the ski carves extremely well on packed. On firmer snow (steeper terrain) the ski breaks loose into a predictable and controllable skid. I expect this kind of behavior from a ski this wide. I've been on skis that unpredictably transition from a engaged to disengaged status on this kind of snow in response to small changes in edge angle. I'd rather a ski simply choose to engage and stay there like a racing ski, or set up into a skid like this does.

          The short turn radius is fun on groomers jamming back to the lift. The 115 is surprisingly good in moguls. I attribute that to the slipperiness from the tip and tail rocker and the low swing weight. They are wide so they take up a lot of room in the troughs and it's easy to trap one under the other. But, That's something to be expected and it's easy to dial into.

          Powder...so far so good. I tend to ski with a high edge angle regardless of terrain and conditions, so someone with a more modern powder technique would be a better source than me for it's ability to "slarve," ski switch, or butter in deep snow.

          I guess, in a nutshell, the most important and revealing thing I can say about the Q-115 is I had a blast on them day 1, and I can't wait to get back out there on them. I was thinking they'd be a pow day-side/backcountry ski for me only, but I think I'll end up putting more days on them than any of my other skis.

                Tried the Q108 on demo at Bigsky and loved it. Got these on a good deal and like them a lot. Easy to turn , a lot of float in pow. Soft rocker that is comfy in chowder or terrain that is not fresh. I stay away from moguls so no comment on that use ? They are comfy all mountain skis with excellent advancements in ski design. They are not good going fast on steep groomed terrain that has been lacking snowfall and is icy or fast on cat trails that are icy . Slow down on them in those conditions. Great pow ski in numerous terrain variations . Easy turn , soft comfy rocker, slay pow like nobody's business!
