When you'd rather blaze down the mountain with fluidity than spend your day getting tossed between bumps and suffer over bone chattering boilerplate, step into the Salomon Q 85 Ski and carve down the mountain with speed. Featuring Salomon's Utility Rocker, the profile of the Q 85 consists of a long, gradual rocker in the tip along with a generous dose of camber underfoot to deliver the precise edge control you want from an all mountain carver.The build of the Q 85 puts an emphasis on on piste performance but maintains all the chops your need for a little off trail exploration. They feature a full wood core, which makes them stable at speed by dampening vibrations and eliminating tip chatter. ABS sidewalls through the middle section of the ski only add to their overall stability, while Salomon's Monocoque construction in the tip and tail make the ski more maneuverable and forgiving than a full side walled ski. The sidecut of the ski eliminates hooking and makes for effortless turn initiation when you do luck out with a little bit of fresh powder.
