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.
Utility Rocker - Designed for maximum versatility, directional stability, and float in powder
Hook Free Taper - 5 Point sidecut shape with taper at the tip and tail for easier turning in deep and variable snow
Full Wood Core - A full wood core creates a strong, stable, and responsive ski.
Pulse Pad - Two layers of rubber elastomer in the tip, tail, and underfoot give shock absorption and improve durability of ski.
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.
Glossy Topsheet - Graphics that pop
Honeycomb Tip - Provides more float, less chatter, and a reduced swing weight
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
