Salomon QST 98 Skis 2023

The outgoing QST 99 left big shoes to fill, so Salomon went huge on a replacement and absolutely stomped the landing. The Salomon QST 98 Skis bring a fresh freeride philosophy to the mid fat range with an all new shape that takes its cues from QST's new big brother, the QST Blank. There's noticeably more rocker and taper in tip and tail, a tighter radius, and a looser, more pivoty feel than their forefathers - think easier tail release, effortless slarves, and more playful riding in featured terrain. But don't worry, they still know how to rail on edge, with Salomon's new Double Sidewall Technology for added grip and power transmission. If you're in the market for a fun-loving everyday ripper, you can call off the search - you just found your forever ski.

Product Details

Rocker Type

All Terrain Twin RockerDirectional profile with rocker in the tip, camber underfoot, and rocker in the tail.

Core

Full Poplar WoodcoreA woodcore from tip to tail offers optimum stability on snow and powerful rebound. Maximizes ski-to-snow contact and filters vibrations.

Laminates

Carbon Powered C/FX Carbon Flax WeaveC/FX technology is elevated to the next level of performance by being supercharged with two times more carbon and balanced with basalt to keep its superior dampening and vibration absorption properties.

Cork DamplifierCork is three times more absorbing than Koroyd. Using it in the tip of the ski enables a high level of vibration absorption and dampening with even less weight.

Sidewalls

Double Sidewall ConstructionA high density injected piece of ABS underfoot combined with full length sidewalls creates a strong platform underfoot to maximize the grip on hard snow.

Additional Features

TPU Glossy Topsheet

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Look Pivot 12 GW Ski Bindings 2023

The classic Look Pivot 12 GW Ski Bindings are the go-to choice of committed skiers worldwide, and known for their reliability and consistency of release. Look's elasticity is the best in the business, the turntable heel offers bombproof lateral security, and the shortened mounting pattern lets the ski flex as freely as possible. If classic design and superior retention are important to you, the few dollars more you'll spend for the Pivot 12 won't warrant a second thought.

Product Details

Toe Piece

180˚ Multi-Directional ReleaseA true mechanical upward release that functions independently from the heel for the most effective multi-directional protection in the case of a fall.

Full Action Toe | 45 mm ElasticityFeaturing 45mm of elastic travel and 180⁰ multi-directional release, the Full Action toe piece delivers best-in-class retention and release and increased coupling strength (boot-to-binding interface) for maximum power transmission.

Dual Standard Concept (ISO 5355 Alpine and Gripwalk)Look strategically reinforced the toe housing, increased the toe ramp, elongated the toe-wings, and created a toe that is compatible with both ISO 5355 Alpine and GripWalk soles.

Toe Lateral Elasticity45 mm

Heel Piece

Turntable HeelLook’s unique turntable design rotates directly under the tibia for reduced risk of injury and provides 28mm of elastic travel to deliver unmatched shock absorption for significant reduction of pre-release.

28mm Vertical Elasticity28mm of elasticity in the heel (the most of any binding on the market) yields a reduction in unwanted pre-releasing.

Additional Features

Smaller Mounting ZoneThe shortest mounting zone of any alpine binding available provides less swing weight, improved response, and a deeper, rounder, more consistent ski flex.

7 Points of ContactMore points-of-contact with the boot results in increased lateral energy transmission, drives more power to the edge of the ski and provides superior control, response, and snow feel.

Ski Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
