2014 Salomon Quest Q 105 Ski


Pros: Killer price for what you are paying

Cons: Speed limit at high end. Not a fan of the graphics


Salomon is looking to he the value leader is the ski industry. What they have been successful in pulling off is offering 9/10 performance of of the big boys in this class, (Vagabond, Rev 105, Gotama, Soul 7) for 7-8/10th the price. There usually is a cost for value and it is at that last 1/10th range which rends to be speed and stability, if you are a big, heavy strong charger, you might feel this but for a finesse lighter skier that might not be an issue. Where the Quest 105 fits in the Salomon line is right below the very good Rocker2 108, the Quest differentiates itself from the Rocker2 with a lower tail rise and a bit more versatility, this accompanied with a lower price tag will make the Q 105 a winner for this coming season. 


On the snow performance was very good, what I liked was how well the tip connected in turn initiation on the wind buffed I tested it in. A high edge angle was easily achieved even at slower to medium speeds especially for such a wide ski. Where I found limits was at higher speed GS types.
