The updated, directional shape and an injection of energetic stiffness to the new Salomon QST 99 make it a viable workhorse. While the QST model has been around for four years now, the 2021 Salomon QST 99 brings a new feel underfoot: versatility paired with true-to-form directional performance. Here, full sandwich sidewalls add durability, cork inserts in the tip reduce chatter at speed and a carbon/flax weave increases rigidity. Riding this ski offers the ability to crank through moguls, weave through glades and cut trenches on-piste. Resort riders, this is your cordial invitation to join the Salomon family.
FREESKIER tester thoughts:
“The defining characteristic for the QST 99, for me, was the ski’s versatility. Wide enough and nimble enough to feel right at home off-piste, but stable and planted enough for high speed, on-piste carving.”
