Salomon Men's QST Blank Skis

$849.00 CAD

It's pretty cool when a company uses their athletes and allows them some free reign in the ski design aspect. The Salomon QST Blank is the result, and we're pretty stoked to see them added to the already popular QST line. At 112 mm underfoot, this one falls in between the QST 106 and 118 models, with some familiar technologies carried forward, some new ones to add to the mix. Starting with a full poplar wood core, the skis are energetic and snappy to start. Add to that in the tips and tails, Salomon's C/FX carbon and flax material makes the skis even more responsive and strong, without adding weight. They've been using this material in a lot of their skis, and it definitely lends to a unique and supple feeling that a lot of skiers really like, and we think it works very well in this application. Cork Damplifier is another technology that is being carried into the QST Blank, and this cork material in the tips and tails keeps the skis incredibly smooth and damp, playing off of the energy of the carbon and flax very nicely. It's always interesting to see how Salomon uses a variety of different ingredients to make a ski perform a certain way. Not stopping there, Salomon uses their Double Sidewall, which is an injected ABS material into the underfoot portion of the ski. This gives this the 112 some much-needed torsional stiffness underfoot for carving power and on-trail versatility.
