Alpine Ski Salomon Q98

Ski sold without binding.

The Q series returns for the joy of us all. You won’t have any new skis in it though, the range is so complete there was no need to expand it anymore.
The Q98 is for skiers who have a bias towards freeriding but who don’t want to give up on piste performance.  

What can the Salomon Q98 do?  

The Q98 looks a lot like a  freerider and acts like one. Its generous 97mm underfoot platform delivers powder enjoyment enhanced by the lightweight construction and honeycomb structured tip. The ski floats on the deep as if it was easy and manoeuvers through it with a great nimble feel thanks to the 5-point sidecuts.
But where the Q98 surprised us most was on the hardpack. Despite its width and shape the ski grips hard and feels pretty responsive and reliable on piste. This isn’t very common for a freerider! 

Who is the Salomon Q98 designed for? 

This is a ski made for advanced powder-oriented skiers looking for something versatile that can handle all types of snow when conditions aren’t at their best. The ski is agile and feels powerful and supportive on steep, tracked out slopes but can also be smooth and nimble on piste.
This is a really nice quiver highly recommended if you can have only one pair of skis to ski everywhere.  

What are the main assets of the Salomon Q98 ? 

High versatility
Grip and agility on piste
Effortless floatation
