Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
If you don't know what 'backside' means, you're probably not skiing it. If you're back there getting face shots and floating on air, then you're loving your Salomon Women's Q-103 Stella Ski. This powder-happy ski has a nice fat tip, a mid-fat waist, and a tip rocker for optimal loft in deep snow. The directional stability and ample sidecut radius means this ski loves to go full throttle. Even with this light weight, semi-cap construction and honeycomb tip, the Stella won't flap in the wind or chatter on runouts. The full wood core keeps it strong and stable, and the gentle-rise tail adds control and strong rebound from turn to turn. If you're a powderhound and live for backside explorations--you know who you are--this is your stick.
Salomon Q-103 Stella is for women freeriders who ski aggressively all over the mountain. Directional stability with Utility Rocker, Stella shreds the powder, and she shreds the groomed. Full Woodcore: Wood from tip to tail improves stability and rebound, maximizes ski to snow contact and filters vibrations. Edgy Monocoque: Designed for freeskiing applications, with reduced excess material for more efficient energy transfer from skier to snow. PULSE PAD: A layer of rubber along the edges and in certain zones of the ski for smoother ride & improved ski-snow contact. Oversized PULSEPAD: Anti vibration layer molded into the ski all along the front part of the ski to filter vibrations for better absoption and smooth ski/snow contact. Edge Free extremities: No edges in the tip or tail area of the ski provide more fluid gliding in powder because edges don't "hang up", and weight is reduced. Honey Comb Tip: Super light honeycomeb construction in the tip extremeties reduces inertia to make the ski more maneuverable and playful. Reinforced with an ABS frame for durability. Wide edges: Thicker edges for increased durability and improved shock resistance. Total edge reinforcement: A fiber reinforcement directly on the edges that provides edge stiffness for improved durability and grip. Gentel Rise Tail: A shorter, shallower rise to the tail rocker that increases edge contact and stability. Utility Rocker: The directional, hybrid version of TWIN ROCKER. A larger CARVE ZONE (camber) and lower tail rocker, with gentle rise, increase stability and control in all conditions, while remaining highly maneuverable and easy to steer. Carve Zone. Lenght: 158 cm, 165 cm. Ski Weight: 1690 g or 3 lbs 11 oz at 158
