Salomon Q-98 Skis 2015

Salomon Shop all Salomon
Who remembers the winter of 1998? Nagano, Japan does, but that doesn't matter; bobsledding and figure skating have nothing to do with charging your mountain. The Salomon Q-98 Skis know a lot about charging; anywhere, anytime, it doesn't matter, versatility is the name of the game. With a full length woodcore and 98mm waist, the Q-98 is stable and nimble on hard snow, yet wide enough underfoot to float through the blower. Salomon threw a honeycomb tip in the mix and dropped the swing weight, making the ski maneuverable when you're lining up that huck or straightline. Stop worrying about maybe's and expand your options. Whether it's pow, hardpack, or variable snow, the Q-98 will let you charge.
Rocker Type
Utility Rocker - Designed for maximum versatility, directional stability, and float in powder
Shape
Hook Free Taper - 5 Point sidecut shape with taper at the tip and tail for easier turning in deep and variable snow
Core
Full Woodcore - A full woodcore creates a strong, stable, and responsive ski.
Laminates
Pulse Pad - Two layers of rubber elastomer in the tip, tail, and underfoot give shock absorption and improve durability of ski.
Sidewalls
Semi-Sandwich Sidewall - A combination of ABS sidewall in the middle of the ski and monocoque in the tip and tail means edge grip underfoot and light weight in the tip and tail.
Graphics
Glossy Topsheet - Graphics that pop
Additional Features
Honeycomb Tip - Provides more float, less chatter, and a reduced swing weight
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain
    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.
  • 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: Flat
    Flat
    This is your traditional tail, designed to have edge contact all the way through the tail, and only designed for skiing forward. This is also preferred for alpine touring, as you can stick the tails of your skis in the snow.
  • Ski Awards: Outside Magazine Gear of the Year
  • Warranty: 1 year (2 Years with Salomon Bindings)
