I put the walk soles on these, couple that with the walk mode and you've got a comfortable hiking and full alpine skiing performance.

What is the difference between these and the 2012 version? Are these compatible with most downhill bindings?

Best Answer Responded on

These have the twin frame technology, where nearly the entire lower section of the boot is custom shell plastic. So it can be heated and it will mold to your foot. The last starts narrower that the 2012 Quest, but it can stretch up to a 104 mm last. The cuff is quite stiff, so the flex ends up stiffer, imo, than all the 2012 Quests. They are still compatible with all alpine bindings

Great performance

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

When I am standing on top of a line in these boots, there is absolute confidence that I can ski as hard as I want. No sacrificing the down, some sacrifices on the up though. It is not particularly light, but once on top of my line I don't care. It's shred time.
The boot fits really well, and should accommodate all foot shapes, with molding if needed.

This boot is made for skiing hard, inbounds or outabounds.

Quest max is awesome

I've got a half a season in this boot and I'm loving it. I switched from the Ghost 120 to the Quest Max 120 as my everyday boot. I have the walk soles on mine which makes it so much more pleasurable to walk in ski boots. Basically I didn't know what I was missing before! The walk mode is also a great feature that I love having. I spend about 30-40% of my time in the backcoutry, mostly halfday tours consisting of 2-3 hour initial skin with a couple shorter laps after that or head out from the resort and get a few laps. The other thing I love about the Quest Max 120 is the 98 last fits my foot perfectly without needing to mold the custom shell. But if you've got a wide foot the custom shell will expand as much as could need.

Hi Jamey, I've read several reviews where tester downsized from their normal boot size for a more snugged fit and better on-snow feel and precision. Would you advise doing the same?
Thanks!

Responded on

Hi Arnaud, I kept that same size as my Ghost boots. This boot, unlike previous Quest models is a narrower last, so it fit me just right. However, because it has the new "Twin Frame", the whole lower boot is custom shell and therefore moldable to your foot. It can expand several mm, so you could easily downsize and mold for a nice tight fit.

Hey Jamey,
How does the stiffness of these boots compare with your Ghosts? Do the cuff strap or the walk mode switch noticeably affect it compared to the X Max 120? Thanks.

Responded on

What up Legrand! These are just as stiff as my Ghost 120s. They made the cuff super stiff and the power strap is not elastic. I have not skied the X Max 120 so I can't compare with that boot, but I've been very impressed and like I said, this is now my one and only boot.

any word on if/when salomon will release dynafit or tech soles for this boot?

Responded on

Jamey,
any idea if tech binding soles will be released any time soon? Love the specs on this boot, and would love to be able to transition between alpine and dynafit bindings.

Responded on

Hi Jason, they should be available sometime soon. Some of the guys have them already but I'm not sure when/where you can buy them, but I'm guessing sometime this spring.

Responded on

Sounds like fall on those soles Jason.

Hi Jamey, I'm using the ghost 120 at the moment and am going to do a couple of tours next season. I've been told that it is going to hurt a lot if I try skinning for 4-5 hours with my ghosts.
First question: have you tried touring with the ghosts before, if yes, how hard was it and how long do you think you could skin for in them?
Second question: How manageable is a 5 hour skin tour in the Quests and what is the forward lean like compared to the ghosts?
Thanks a lot,
Magnus

Hey Magnus,

I ski the Ghost slackcountry and to the local cabin and other than being heavy I have never had a problem with them on a 5-8 hour tour. Just loosen'em right off and if your prone to blisters on your heel pregame with some duct tape.

That said they are not as good as touring boots for the hike, but then that's not why you packed'em all the way out there is it?

Peace

Trev

I agree with everything Trevor said. The biggest problem you'll have touring in the Ghost is if you have long flat sections to cross. I routinely toured in my ghosts, half days with multiple laps.

If I remember correctly, the fwd lean in ghost 120 is similar to quest max 120, as I used the same rear spoiler in each for a little extra fwd lean.

Clearly I like to hit the backcountry with stiff boots and big skis, so when I switched to the Quest max 120 I felt the touring capabilities were excellent, a huge improvement over my Ghost.
