The best way to explain the Salomon Q-103 Skis is if you combined a surfboard and a race ski. Too good to be true you say? What we mean is the Salomon Q-103 Stella surfs powder and lays tracks on groomers. When lightweight meets low swing weight you win; the full woodcore with a honeycomb tip makes the ski stable, lively, and chatter-free. Utility rocker means the Q-103 gives you the float you want in deeper snow and maneuverability in tight spots. For an everyday pow ski (yes that is a thing) the Stella won't come up short.
Utility Rocker – Designed for maximum versatility, directional stability, and float in powder
Carve Zone – The traditionally cambered section of twin rocker skis, where the sidecut is focused for more power, energy and edge grip.
Hook Free Taper – Ski has 5-point sidecut, with taper in the tip and tail for easier turn initiation and steering in soft and variable snow conditions
Full Wood Core – Full-length woodcore from tip to tail offers stability and powerful rebound
Pulse Pad – Two layers of rubber elastomer in the tip, tail, and underfoot give shock absorption and improve durability of ski.
Edgy Monocoque – Designed for freeskiing applications, with reduced excess material for more efficient energy transfer from skier to snow. Single structural layer of fiber provides optimal comfort, response, and maneuverability.
Glossy Topsheet – Graphics that pop
Honeycomb Tip – Provides more float, less chatter, and a reduced swing weight
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
