By putting basalt stringers underneath the QST 106’s inverted poplar wood core and a blend of built-in carbon fiber and flax in the shovel, this ski became a frontrunner for tester’s choice as “most improved.” The QST 106 is predictable and easy to ski, consistently schmearing and arcing in soft snow and packed powder. Even with its skin-track-friendly weight, it could still push through variable conditions without talking back. 

Strength: Stability at Speed

Weakness: Quickness
