Reviewer DellaSausa

"I ski at high speed, so stability is vital. As is powder output for I dart off-piste all the time. Versatility is all important for an all-mountain ski, with an emphasis on powder (backside) for me. But I still like them to be stiff, not flexible."

Brilliant All-mountain - freeride ski for every terrain


In my opinion the Salomon Quest 90 is a fantastic all-mountain ski. Although I love pure speed, mostly with giant slalom piste skis on icy groomed pistes, the Salomon Quest 90 gives me a lot of fun and also adrenaline. I really enjoy the change between the groomed piste and off-piste. Normally when I ski off-piste I don’t take too much risk. I want to stay in control and there’s no place for real speed. But on the Quest 90 I suddenly dared to accelerate and speed up in the powder and fresh snow. It gave me a big kick!

Versatile and adjustable

The Salomon Quest 90 (177 cm) is really a brilliant all-mountain ski for all terrain. This ski enables me to change quickly between the different types of slopes. On the groomed slopes this ski gives me more grip and control in the long and short carve turns than I expected. In the fresh snow this ski has a good float. This all-mountain ski gets my 5 star quality as it belongs to one of the best all-mountain skis I have ever skied!

Salomon about the Q-90

"All-mountain confidence and exploring inspiration. The Q-90 is for skiers looking to explore new terrain and develop thier off-piste skills, with a lightweight wood core, tip rocker and forgiving early rise tail.", says Salomon. Great, I'll dig this as the Quest 90 is a TOP all mountain ski to me as well.
