Technical info:
Quest 105 is one of the widest skis in the test. It is also among the heaviest. Average sidecut and an asymmetrical rocker distribution. The tip rocker is long and low, with an extra bend at the tip. The ski is medium stiff with a soft tip.

On snow:
Easy to maneuverer, it reminds us of the Salomon 108, just a little lighter. If we have to pick on something, it will have to be how it responds at speed. The back skis don´t quite follow suit and the tips tend to flutter. This is not a traditional charging ski. It´s an easy-going and likeable allrounder. The Salomon Quest 105 is for everyone.
