The 2014 Salomon Q-98 Skis are hard charging skis with serious all-mountain adventure capabilities. Semi-Sandwich construction, a full wood core and wider reinforced edges add durability, stability and versatility to a playful, directional ski for exploring the mountain front to back.
Utility Rocker Salomon's most versatile rocker profile, excelling in all conditions and terrains, Utility Rocker offers optimal floatation, fluid terrain absorption and directional stability.
Gentle Rise Tail A shorter, shallower rise to the tail rocker that increases edge contact and stability.
Carve Zone The traditionally cambered section of twin rocker skis, where the sidecut is focused for more power, energy and edge grip.
Hook Free Taper Allowing for easier turn initiation in soft and variable snow, this tip and tail shape slices through difficult snow without hanging up.
Full Wood Core A wood core that runs from tip to tail offers optimum stability and powerful rebound, with maximum ski/snow contact and reduced vibration
Semi-Sandwich Edge to edge construction allows liveliness with increased stability underfoot.
Wider Edges Thicker edges for increased durability and improved shock resistance
Total Edge Reinforcement A fiber reinforcement is laid directly on the edges, improving edge stiffness, durability and grip.
Honeycomb + ABS Frame Lighter at the extremities for better floatation, less inertia for easier steering and more control, and increased dampening and shock resistance
Pulse Pad This 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.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
