The QST 99 from Salomon makes a great option for the strong intermediate to expert skier who wants a true one ski quiver for charging in the fresh powder, carving up a firm groomer and everything else in between. This season Salomon added a Basalt Layer to the C/FX 3 Construction that keeps you ultra-stable while keeping the total weight of the ski down. The C/FX 3 combines carbon and flax for a lightweight and energetic feeling on the mountain that is capable of hitting top speed and staying smooth. The All-Terrain Rocker 2.0 keeps you highly maneuverable on the frontside and helps you stay on top of the fresh snow. Salomon's Pulse Pad has vibration dampening elastomers that absorb vibrations to deliver a smoother ride down the mountain. The Ti Power Platform adds a little bit of rigidity underfoot and prevents you from pulling out binding screws. A Koroyd Tip pulls heavier material away from the tip of the ski for added floatation and easier maneuverability.
All-Terrain Rocker 2.0 – With a slight tip and tail rise, All-Terrain Rocker 2.0 adds an extra dimension of versatility and control for all mountain skiing. Camber in the middle of the ski and full length contact guarantees strong edge grip, stability and power for hard snow and piste skiing. In addition to the excellent terrain absorption and intuitive turn initiation, the slight twin rocker also allows the ski to pivot much easier when ski is flat, increasing control and maneuverability in all conditions.
Spaceframe 3.0 AMB – Directional design philosophy built to perform in all conditions thanks to all-mountain rocker and a woodcore that extends into the tail.
Hook Free Taper – This ski has a 5 point sidecut, where the tip and tail taper in the narrow at the extremities for easier turn initiation and steering in soft and variable snow conditions.
Light Poplar Full Woodcore
Koroyd Honeycomb Tip – The lightest extremities for better flotation, less inertia for easier steering and more control while increasing dampening and shock resistance.
C/FX³ – Unique prepreg fiber layer consisting of Carbon, Basalt and Flax woven together, running the full length of the ski. Combines the incredible strength and minimal weight of carbon fiber for stability and reinforcement, with an increased level of dampening and vibration absorption above and beyond anything found on traditional carbon and light ski constructions. Patented and exclusive to Salomon.
