The Salomon QST Stella 106 Skis define the genre of “soft snow freeride ski” to a “T” – fantastic float for the pow, ample edgehold for the gnar, relatively low swing weight to navigate around rocks and trees, and Salomon’s tradition of using input from their freeride athletes to good advantage. This is the ski to rely on when you don’t want a full-width powder stick but don’t want to be caught undergunned in a foot of fresh, and don’t want something gutless when the going gets steep and icy.
Freeride Rocker Profile – 25% Tip Rocker / Camber / 17% Tail Rocker
Full Poplar Woodcore – A woodcore from tip to tail offers optimum stability on snow and powerful rebound. Maximizes ski-to-snow contact and filters vibrations.
Cork Damplifier – Cork is 16 times more absorptive than Koroyd. Using it in the tip and/or tail of the ski enables a high level of vibration absorption and dampening while decreasing weight.
C/FX Carbon Weave – C/FX is a fiber layer consisting of Carbon and Flax woven together. It combines the strength, stability, minimal weight of carbon with the increased level of dampening of the flax.
Double Sidewalls Technology – A high density injected piece of ABS underfoot combined with full length sidewalls creates a strong platform underfoot to maximize grip on hard snow.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
