Product Info

The Salomon Q-90 Skis are your everyday, all-mountain skis with a lightweight wood core, tip rocker, and forgiving early rise tail. Utility Rocker provides excellent flotation in powder yet very stable and consistent in harder snow conditions. Semi-Sandwich construction with wider reinforced edges offers increased stability underfoot, durability and improved shock resistance and edge grip. Explore new, more challenging terrain with ease on the Salomon Q-90 Skis. Getting back to the lift should be fun, not frightening.

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

Semi-SandwichEdge to edge construction allows liveliness with increased stability underfoot.

Edges

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

Wider EdgesThicker edges for increased durability and improved shock resistance

Additional Features

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-90 Skis 2014:

    I picked up skiing for the first time in Utah last year after switching from snowboarding for over 15 years. After renting ski's last season it was time to invest in my own gear this year and after doing much research I landed with the Q90.

    Here's the type of skiing I do:
    - Green/Blue and Entry level black runs
    - 70% groomers and 30% off-piste on powder days

    I'm a 6foot 200lb skier and went with the 177 length and I wanted to make sure I had the speed and length to grow into as my skiing progressed.

    What I liked about this ski is that it's super easy to use, floats well in relatively moderate powder days (8-12inches) and carves really well for the taper/waist width. Being my first set of skis, this is definitely a ski I'll keep for many years and eventually invest in a wider powder ski down the road.

    Would definitely recommend to someone of an intermediate skier who just wants a "quiver of one" and keeps a much wider ski for those big powder days.

    Comments about Salomon Q-90 Skis 2014:

    I've been looking for a pair of these skis since I demo'ed them at Brenckenridge in Feb. Prices on line were coming down, but slowly. On a whim I looked one Monday morning and there was a huge price reduction at Evo.
    The skis are lightweight (wood core) and easy to turn. I can't wait to get take new skis out for a spin.

    Service and delivery comments:

    I bought and received them about a day later.
    The service was great and I appreciated the humor that accompanies the automatic email response...
    "PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL! It was sent by a robot with very poor interpersonal skills."
    All around a great experience.

        Strong, forgiving, fun all mountain skis. I haven't taken them into the deep stuff yet but looking forward to giving that a shot.

        Evo gave a great price on these skis once the 2015s came out, too. Very pleased with this purchase.
