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.

Super easy to ski. Performance and forgivenes for a strong intermediate skier. Lean on the front for some nice quick turns, put pressure on the balls of your feet and they will carve and hold a good edge, if you get tired, lazy or off balla...Read More

Hey, this is Jeff. I just got off the Salomon Q85. I give this ski 3.5 out of 5 stars. It wasn't really great in hard pack conditions but I imagine it would be a lot of fun in softer snow. This ski's really for somebody who's aspiring to be...Read More

I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Salomon Q85. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's a great ski for that intermediate skier who's looking to ski to really take them to the next level and explore a different piece of the mountain. 85mm...Read More

Q: Hello: I was considering buying this for my two boys. One is 6'1" weighs 220 and the other is around 5'9" or so and weighs about 140 - he is still growing, so I'd like to take that into account. Which bindings and ski size should I buy? Thanks for any help! Rachel

A:The 167cm would be a great option for your son who weighs 140lbs. For the son who weighs 220lbs. I would recommend the 181cm size. The Salomon Z-12 binding with a 90mm brake, or the Salomon Warden 11 would make great options for bindings.

Q: What about for a light woman, 5'5", 120lbs?

A:A womens specific ski has a flex pattern and mounting position that will be less fatiguing and easier for a woman to control. I would recommend the Salomon QST Myriad 85 in a 153cm instead.

Q: I'm a big guy, 6'4" 285. I'm currently on Fire arrow pro 80 ti's for my carvers. I'm looking for something light and snappy to play around on mostly groomers and crud. Would the 174's be something light and easy that would work for me?

A:Based on your weight, ability, and what you are looking to do I would recommend something a bit stiffer and a bit longer for you. The Salomon QST 92 or Atomic Vantage 90 CTi both come in 185cm and 184cm sizes. Those would be perfect for you and your terrain selection.

Q: I'm a 17 y/o beginner, would this be a good ski for me? If so what size? I'm 5'9 175lbs.
Asked : Dec 30, 2016
By : Ethan, United States

A:Based on your weight and ability the 174cm Q-85 will be a perfect ski for you. It is forgiving enough for you to learn with, but strong enough to let you progress.

Q: 70 yo blue skier average ability. History on K2 Apache Raider and several years of K2 rentals Amp Richter all mountain. 175 lbs 6' 1"". Reasonable ski for me? Binding recommendation?
Asked : Sep 04, 2016
By : Bill, San Antonio TX
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A:Based on your age, weight, and ability the 174cm would be a nice option for you. A Salomon Z 12 Ti, or Marker Squire with a 90mm brake would be a solid option. This will feel much lighter weight than the two K2 skis you have been skiing on.
