Salomon Q-98 Skis 2014

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.
Rocker Type
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.
Sidecut
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.
Core
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
Sidewalls
Semi-Sandwich - Edge to edge construction allows liveliness with increased stability underfoot.
Edges
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.
Additional Features
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.
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Alpine Touring
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Alpine Touring
    Also known as backcountry skis, alpine touring (AT) skis are designed for going uphill as well as downhill. These skis are typically light for their width and many feature fittings that accept climbing skins. AT skis vary in width and weight, with the wider heavier versions usually used for winter/deep snow touring and the skinnier, lighter skis usually used for spring/summer/long distance touring.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Partial Twin Tip
    Partial Twin Tip
    Partial twin tip skis have a tail that is turned up, but not as much as the tip. This gives you the ability to ski backwards and back out of tight spaces, but these skis are mainly designed to ski forward.
