The Salomon QST 118 Skis are a hero's tool for hero days and more. Absolutely the right pick for hip deep days and the biggest, gnarliest mountains in the land, the QST 118 also does a great job of driving through mank and chop and isn't half bad on the groomed. The secret lies in the balance of surface area/rocker profile and the sweet blend of dampening agents that mixes carbon, flax and Titanal. Take this one for a test drive on a deep day and you'll become a believer.Rocker Type: Twin Rocker – 26% Tip Rocker / 52% Camber / 22% Tail RockerCore: Light Poplar Full Woodcore – A woodcore from tip to tail offers optimum stability on snow and powerful rebound. Maximizes ski-to-snow contact and filters vibrationsLaminates: C/FX Carbon Flax Weave – A new weaving with transversal and longitudinal fibers and increased amounts of both carbon and flax, plus basalt fiber. Yields increased torsional stiffness, stronger edge grip and stability. Single Ti – A single layer of Titanal reinforcement on top of the core for great edge grip, efficient energy transfer and liveliness. Cork Damplifier – Cork is three times more absorbing than Koroyd. Using it in the tip of the ski enables a high level of vibration absorption and dampening with even less weight. Pulse Pad – A layer of rubber that runs along the edges and in ski's critical zones for a smoother ride and improved ski-to-snow contact.Sidewalls: Full Sandwich Sidewalls – A laminate construction with full length ABS sidewalls gives extraordinary smooth ski/snow contact and great terrain adaptation. Laminated construction enables Salomon to combine optimum material layers for targeted performance.Base: Sintered Graphite BaseEdges: Total Edge Reinforcement – A fiber reinforcement directly on top of the edges improves durability, edge grip and shock resistance.Additional Features: TPU Glossy Topsheet, Tail ProtectorBinding Compatibility: We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
