The completely redesigned QST 106 took the best parts of last season’s model and added a damping cork insert into the tip and tail. Salomon also increased the tail rocker by a tiny—yet perfect—amount. The result is the top-ranked Titanal-free ski in the category, one that earned top marks for quickness and overall impression. The QST 106 is no slouch, as longitudinal stringers of carbon fiber and basalt run under the wood core to keep things stable at speed.
STRENGTHS: Overall Impression, Quickness
WEAKNESS: Hard Snow
