Salomon skis: Rocker2 90 vs. Quest 90

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Is this year's Salomon Quest 90 just last year's Rocker2 90 with a new top sheet?  The two skis appear very similar in profile and performance.

The Rocker2 was (not in Salomon's 2014 line) a twin tip with a bit more rocker.  The Quest is more directional with a flatter, stiffer tail.

One point of clarification:  the Rocker2 90 is not in Salomon's 2014 line up.  The are, however, offering the Rocker2 in 108 and 122.

Is that true?  Maybe one of the dealers here can clarify.  My impression was that the Rocker2 90 was basically the Lord or an updated version thereof (the more directional 90mm ski that you described) and the Rocker2 92 was basically the 1020 (or whatever it was called - the twin tip ski).  I thought that the Quest 90 was basically the R290/Lord with a new top sheet.  Is it a net/new ski for Sollie like the Q98 and Q105?  But I could be wrong about that - I'd want to hear a dealer's take.

Rocker 2 92 had more rocker in tail; Rocker 2 90 had rise in tail.
