Manufacturer's Description

The widest ski in Salomon’s lineup, the QST 118 will make you wish the snow is deeper. Always, deeper. The full twin rocker is designed to help you float in the deepest powder. The Spaceframe construction uses carbon and flax to give the QST 118 the stiffness and strength of a metal ski, but not the weight. Essentially, at 1980 grams per ski, it’s a light ski that doesn’t actually ski like a light ski. “The ride is smooth and damp, while a more forward mount point allows easy maneuvering and the early rise prevents the tip from getting buried without making me feel like I was doing a wheely,” said Kade Krichko, who took the QST 118 down Big Sky’s Big Couloir. “I was kind of gripped, but my first two or three turns were quick and they handled just fine in a lot of different conditions, and I didn’t feel tip chatter at all, even though I could see it.”

The Union found the sporty sidecut a bit hooky, and with a 26 meter radius, the QST 118 needs room for big turns—exactly the kind you want to make on the deepest day of the year, and not so much though tight couloirs or trees. —Sierra Davis
