For 2018, Salomon continues with the success of its new QST ski lineup, dethroning the old Rocker2 and Q series. Right in the middle is the Salomon QST 99, a mid-fat all-mountain ski that is hyper versatile and promises stable turns and quick slashes everywhere on the mountain. A true multipurpose ski, its ultra-modern design has all the new technological innovations: titanium reinforcing for more stiffness, Twin Rocker for more versatility in every snow condition, and light tips for swift negotiating in tough terrain.
The QST 99 is a ski that lets you drop in to any run without investigating the snow conditions first, knowing you will be just fine. In fresh snow, chop, and day-old crud, you will discover a powerful and robust ski that floats without effort and tracks right where you point it. The double rocker keeps it on the surface allowing its owner to enjoy its handling to lay trenches everywhere. Even on groomed runs, the edge-to-edge transitions happen very intuitively and the ski offers phenomenal edge hold.
