The one-quiver boot that covers your resort and sidecountry needs.
If you've ever longingly stared out the sidecountry gates but were stopped by your uncomfortable boots, turn to the Salomon Women's Quest 100 Boot. The Quest 100 delivers downhill performance for bell-to-bell resort skiing and the Ride-and-Hike technology you've longed for to make sidecountry travel comfortable and possible. Plus, Salomon gave the Quest a women-specific liner and cuff so you're not constantly stopping at the warming hut for boot adjustments.
- 100 Boot flex furnishes not-to-stiff sidecountry and resort downhill performance
- Shell consists of bi-material PU lower shell, bi-material PP upper cuff, and a waterproof gusset for durability and a smooth flex
- 100mm last is ideal for ladies feet that aren't too narrow or too wide
- My Custom Fit Performance liner consists of two layers of thermoformable foam on the ankle, heel, meta, tongue, and sole for better comfort without altering performance
- Women-specific liner has a specific height and cuff adapted for a woman's leg and calf shape
- Biovent technology features breathable liner construction which helps eliminate clammy, uncomfortable feet
- Three micro-aluminum adjustable buckles easily adjust by the turn of a lever for a precise, personalized closure
- Single canting enables the cuff to be moved toward the interior
- Backbone Release technology incorporates a magnesium piece that links the cuff to the shell, which provides solid back support, rebound, and a progressive forward flex when locked
- The Backbone unlocks for hiking and releases the cuff on the back for a wider opening and easier heel-to-toe transition
- Ride-and-Hike technology combines the Backbone Release with a specific V-cut shape on the back of the lower shell which allows wide rear cuff opening when you hike (Backbone unlocked) and true alpine forward flex when you ski (Backbone locked), because the backside of the backbone fits precisely into the V-cut lower shell
- Heel Cushioning System has a shock-absorbing sole for more comfortable landings
- Extended-rubber sole and mini-plastic sole offer solid traction on sketchy terrain and slippery steps
- Removable heel and toe din pads can be replaced when worn out

Salomon Quest 100 Boot
I'm conisdering the Salomon Quest 80 or...
I'm conisdering the Salomon Quest 80 or 100 boot. I'm an experienced skier who raced in high school and college (albeit not particularly well, but I learned quite a bit of technique from racing) and I'm enjoying on- and off-trail skiing now, living in France and skiing the Alps (oh, the powder!!!). I'm looking for an All-mountain boot that doesn't sacrifice performance on the groomed trails, and possibly allows for some hiking. I'm fairly tall and light (135lb) and have skied a junior race boot with a 90flex since I was 15 (lack of padding is now killing my ankles, time to replace). The 80 flex quests felt pretty good in the store, but I'm worried their aimed at less experienced skiers and won't allow me to use all my technique. I've heard the atomic LF 90 would be a good option for me, but no stores in my area have it to try. I'm also worried that the quest 100 would be too stiff for my weight, and no store near me carries them to try. Advice?
my first real boot
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
My first real ski boot so i only have rental boots to compare these too. I have a fairly high arch and need a wider toe box, these fit the bill and are pretty as well. I am still breaking them in but i believe these will be a great boot once the liner packs out a bit and the shell is stretched in a couple places (easy with the new material the lower is made from). Easier to get on and off compared to other boots I tried on and also like the 3 buckle design. A boot I'm sure will grow with me as my abilities increase. -- reviewed by my wife
