All mountain, directional charger that excels on hardpack and mixed conditions. Whether laying frontside carves or attacking spring couloirs, the QST 99 provides a layup you can count on. The Solomon QST 99 includes several contemporary features from shape to materials. The lightweight Koroyd tips provide excellent swing weight for on demand maneuverability and decreased resonance. The unique tapered tip allow for smoother edge to edge transitions in mixed conditions. The overall profile of this ski is an early rise tip, regular camber under foot and and mostly flat tail. This provides an overall recipe for high speed stability and edge control. A combination of a titanium backbone and carbon/flax fiber laminate give the ski a torsional rigid platform for powering through turns. Over all the QST 99 is a solid all mountain platform that will hold an edge when you need it the most. The Solomon QST 99 is constructed with a wood core reinforced with a titanium backbone. The ski is then reinforced with Solomon's carbon/flax CFX Superfiber laminate adding torsional rigidity. Full sandwich, ABS sidewall construction, extending around the entire sidewall. The tips and tail are constructed using the lightweight material Koroyd that also adds damping and cuts down on tip chatter at high speeds.
