We’re teaming up with Salomon to offer a pair of QST PRO 120 boots in our competition. The entry deadline is 1st March 12 noon - see full terms and conditions.
From the company that revived the hybrid boot, comes a completely revolutionary new all-mountain ‘backside’ boot. The new Salomon QST PRO range is built from the ground up to deliver amazing fit, versatility and comfort, all at a weight that previous alpine boots can’t touch. Salomon is teaming up with George Fisher to offer readers the chance to win a pair of QST PRO 120 boots, worth £340.00!
We asked Paul Eric Chamay, Salomon Alpine Boot product line manager, about his new QST PRO 120 boot. “As more skiers are identifying the light weight and mobility of modern ski-touring boots as something they want, our goal was to incorporate those elements into a true alpine boot”, he says. “To create the best of both worlds required us to start over completely with a new shell design, capitalising on elements of our own touring boots and alpine boots, to build something entirely, radically, new. The result is the QST PRO.”
Looking at the new QST PRO, the difference from traditional boots is obvious. It’s built on a radical new shell concept called Endofit, essentially turning the construction of the tongue inside out, making the boot easier to put on and take off, improving overall foot wrapping, and making the forward flex more progressive. QST Pro also uses the Sensifit Shell design borrowed from the MTN touring boots introduced last year, with much thinner shell walls reinforced in key locations to significantly reduce weight and improve foot wrapping. And to enable convenient, reliable walking comfort, QST PRO uses an all–new spine design called Motion Flex. This carbon composite construction locks into place for skiing responsiveness, but enables 47° range of motion, equivalent to many touring boots on the market.
However, the QST PRO is still a hard-charging alpine boot at its heart. With Salomon’s unique Custom Shell 360°, My Custom Fit 3D liner and well known Wlast, it delivers instant fit that can be customised in 20 minutes. Plus the Oversized Pivot and reinforced spine guarantee lightning-quick edge response.
From a short backcountry hike up a ridge line, to a longer skin track to the end of the valley, to a day of fast skiing in the resort, the new QST PRO fits and performs at the highest level. And with all this performance, Salomon’s new concept weighs in at an amazing 1.6kg. Radically light, radically comfortable, radically versatile; that’s how Salomon describes the QST PRO 120.
