Like caffeine, carbon’s a good thing, but too much of it can cause jitters. To mellow things out, Salomon adds one of the most low-tech of fibers—flax—to its reinforcement weave. As a result, the QST zips along with a surprising dampness for a metal-free ski, so hard snow and high speeds don’t faze it. Light-touch rippers will welcome its quickness, but its easy-to-pivot shape and unmistakable lightness make it a good fit for slower speeds as well. Megroz: “Light and nimble. Likes to make poppy turns through bumps.”

Strengths: Floatation, Quickness/Maneuverability, Versatility
