Salomon Q-85 Skis 2016

The Q-85 from Salomon makes a great ski for the beginner to intermediate skier that wants a light and snappy ski that will allow them to progress as a skier and learn to conquer more difficult terrain that ever before. Salomon's Utility Rocker has a rockered tip, camber underfoot, and a small amount of rocker in the tail that will give you the ability to ski easier, and have more fun anywhere you can go on the mountain. The Q-85 has a Full Wood Core that is lightweight and has a snappy feeling for lighter weight or lesser aggressive skiers to zip turns down the frontside of the mountain. The Semi-Sandwich Construction does a great job of providing you with edge hold on firm snow with a vertical sidewall underfoot, and maneuverability with a cap construction in the tips and tails. The Q-85 has a Hook Free Taper that brings the contact points further back that prevent the tips and tails of the skis from getting caught up in bumps, crud or variable snow conditions, and increase your mobility on the slopes. The 85mm waist is best suited for on trail skiing and making short to medium radius turns, but will also give you flotation and stability when you decide to venture off the groomers on powder days.
