The Salomon Q BC Lab ski is a thing of beauty, like the perfect blend of peanut butter and jelly. The Q BC Lab balances lightweight construction and climbing features with downhill performance. For the uphill, the Q BC Lab has lightweight CFX Laminates, a lightweight poplar woodcore, and honeycomb tip and tail. For the ride back down the Q BC Lab has a 114mm waist, tapered tip and tail, Salomon's utility rocker, and a longer turning radius. All of this means you can fly up the skin track, and ski any line you like on the way down, no matter what the conditions. In the Q Lab BC, Salomon brings out a super versatile platform for backcountry exploration; stability, control, and light weight all in one package.

Comments about Salomon Q BC Lab Skis 2015:
Great all around ski. Ive skiied this on ice, crud, 6 inches of fresh powder, and 12 inches of hard sun hit powder crust. It was amzing in all these conditons. With it being SO light u can literally jump turn this thing on a dime. Which in no falls zones hiking is a good thing. The one thing i notices tho, with this being a stiffer type ski the turn radius is really long on it. I notice when i want to make side to side turns its takes me quite a bit of effort.
