QUEST 45

How do you improve upon the world record holding ski? This was the challenge posed to our R&D Team. After extensive research and countless hours of testing our effort to improve the Quest has been realized. Introducing the Quest 45. By changing the torsional flex of the world record holding Quest the new Q-45 delivers a whole new level of performance. The Q-45 features D3 Quadaxial Technology which limits twist in key areas of the ski improving edge hold and resulting in an earlier line to the next buoy. Wake stability has been improved and cross-course hold has never been better. By modifying the angle of the carbon fiber weave we achieved greater torsional rigidity without any increase in longitudinal flex. Our test team of skiers all agree the new Q- 45 is the best Quest yet. The shorter the rope the more apparent the new Q-45 improvements are when compared to previous Quest models. The Q-45 still features stable, predictable turns due to the large bevel pattern and still boasts the most balanced ride and symmetrical turns on the market.  Ride one and feel the difference. The Q-45 is available in both standard flex and a softer flexing version for our lighter weight competitors called the Quest 45 GS.

T-FACTOR FRONT BOOT

The T-Factor is newest addition to the D3 binding family. Like the Leverage the T-Factor delivers comfort and performance on a traditional EVA-rubber binding platform. 

The T-Factor is the result of more than a year of R&D and testing. The T-Factor features a smooth micro-fiber overlay blended with a rubber insert creating firm lateral support for superior edge control. “Smooth” was a frequent comment from the skiers testing the T-Factor. This smooth, forgiving ride is a result of the soft forward and aft flex the T-Factor delivers. With high-tech bungee in the upper cuff lace location and smaller, softer bungee in the lower lace location the T-Factor is comfortable and a breeze to put on. The T-Factor rear boot comes standard with the new D3 UNI-Plate which accommodates both D3 and HO insert patterns.

One of the biggest differences with the T-Factors is that they are a front-lace binding. This enhances the binding in two ways: It allows for a much wider space to open up when putting the binding on, and it allows for a more natural, uninhibited flex to the rear from the apex of the turn into the acceleration out of the turn. Laces in the back make the rear flex stiffer, and this can cause the tip of the ski to rise out of the turns. With the rear-lace binding the flex allows for some shift in body weight out of the finish of the turns, so even if you do fall slightly back before acceleration the tip of the ski will not rise out of the water. With the whole ski in the water there is no delay in acceleration, and the edge control of the ski is more secure.

  • EVA- rubber blend toe. 
  • 100% high-elasticity rubber heel. 
  • Micro Fiber hybrid overlay with 
  • 100% rubber insert featuring flex vents in the heel area. 
  • Bungee lace system upper and lower
  • New D3 UNI plate for rear binding fits D3, HO, Radar, O’brien, and Connelly insert patterns.
