The new QST Stella is bipolar, taking home top marks in the flotation category while also ranking high in stability at speed. Some testers found it playful and fun in versatile conditions and terrain, others found it best suited to crud-crushing and charging down steep lines at high speed. The difference comes down to how much effort you want to put into the ski. At the end of the day, all testers agreed that the Stella is one heck of a damp ride. 

STRENGTHS: Flotation, Stability at Speed

WEAKNESS: Quickness
