Salomon Quest 88 Lux (2013/2014) ReviewOctober 1, 2013
- At $550, a bargain compared to similar skis
- Easy to initiate the turn
- Lots of energy on groomers
- Strong, expert skiers may find it too weak
Testers preferred this model on groomers over the similarly-shaped but slightly wider Salomon Quest 96 Lumen. “It had a big sweet spot and was easy to love,” said one tester.
Salomon’s new Quest women’s line is designed for women looking to explore all of the mountain, hence the name. The Quest 88 Lux is the skinniest of that line, meaning it’s most suited for the groomer set who may dabble in softer snow, but only every once in a while.
Testers praised this ski for making them feel comfortable and in control. It’s not a hard-charger or for the strongest of female skiers, but it’s a fun, easy ride.
Off piste, this ski gently nudged through crud, as opposed to steamrolling it.
If your quest includes getting down groomers fast and easy, then you’ll be happy with this ski. If you’re looking for something more adventurous, try one of the wider skis in the Quest line.
Salomon’s Quest 88 Lux comes in three lengths: 151, 159, and 167 cm.
