Salomon Q-98 Skis 2016

Salomon Shop all Salomon
Salomon's entry into the ultra-competitive 100mm waist class comes through with all the goodies but lets you save your energy for the long haul. The Q-98 has the width and Utility Rocker profile to handle all but the deepest days with aplomb, and does it so smoothly and effortlessly you'll find yourself still feeling fresh late into the afternoon. Light enough and versatile to a fault, the Q-98 is also one of very few skis in this category you would be happy with as a dual-duty lift-served and touring ski.
Rocker Type
Utility Rocker - Long and gradual rocker in the tip, camber underfoot, and a very slight amount of rocker at the tail
Carve Zone - The traditionally cambered section of twin rocker skis, where the sidecut is focused for more power, energy and edge grip.
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 wood core from tip to tail creates a strong, stable, and responsive ski by maximizing ski to snow contact and filtering vibrations out.
Laminates
Honeycomb Tip - Lightens the ski at the tip for improved swing weight
Sidewalls
Semi Sandwich Sidewall - A combination of ABS sidewall in the middle of the ski and monocoque in the tip and tail; strong edge grip underfoot and increased maneuverability.
Edges
Wide Edges - For durability and shock resistance.
Additional Features
Glossy Topsheet
Skin Camlock Compatible
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.
