Salomon QST 98
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.
