Strenghts:
The ski has many strengths and above all it offers all sorts of skiing despite the wide waist. The ski is classified as an allmoutain ski and is the widest for a normal allmountain ski but can be guaranteed to be classified as one with the ease and flexibility of the ski. Although the waistline is relatively wide, it is incredibly smooth to put on edge.

Weaknesses:
The skid can be difficult for beginners, given the width and the high radius

Summary:
A developed ski from Salomon that is easy to do with. Allmountain ski that fits all ski slopes and adapts to conditions.

Riding style: EVERYWHERE
Length on the ski: 188 cm
Riders weight: 72 kg

Strenghts:
Very good performance in both pistons and pillows
Versatile
rapid
Light
Fun

Weaknesses:
Burst slightly in stability on undamaged surfaces
Flattering top

Summary:
When Borgafjäll leads the snow top with its 153 cm it is obvious that your man goes to test the skis. In the morning it just stopped snow and the surface was amazing.

The skis were tested in the powder at once. Even though I was not alone in looking for some nice turns it was no problem finding their untouched lines carrying the mountain. In these circumstances the skis showed off their best side! They had a very good flow for their waist at 106 mm and I never experienced any trouble keeping the peaks above the snow surface. They were stable, fast and fun to ride on. The off-firing in Borgafjäll is basically only in the woods and, regardless of the speed among the trees, I had full confidence in the skis that went crazy. Really nice ride! For a 106 mm ski, the performance of the powder is really impressive.

Even in the more hilly parts of the mountain, the skis were nice to ride on. They dampened the vibrations in a good way and spread on the surface without any major concerns. Even here they were fast and surprisingly fun to go on. However, I did not realize that it was here that the skis were distinguished. Despite a good rating, I found that the stability of the skis was not always top, especially when more packed snow could sometimes cause them to lose stability. It is nevertheless important to point out that the ski was not under any circumstances underestimated. On the contrary, I thought that they offered a very nice ride on undamaged surfaces and overall they get a good score even in this part, but unfortunately they do not reach the full pot.

As for the performance in the piste, I think it was very good. I never felt that higher speeds were any concern for the skis. They were twisted in the turns and they were able to push them without any problems. Now I tested the skis in very good conditions and the surface could hardly have been better, but the experience is that the ski's properties in the piste are very good. One drawback worth pointing to, however, is the flickering dump that I drew attention to several times during the ride. Performanceally, I did not experience this affecting the skis, but it was definitely something that attracted my attention several times.

In summary, I want to give the skis a very good score. They are very good competitors for other skis with similar waist width and category and that they are easy make them a good choice for top trips. Even though I do not think they are brilliant on undisturbed surfaces, they are very versatile and I prefer pillow shooting appreciate their good flowability. During the ride I was also surprised at how playful the skis were going on. I will definitely keep them and look forward to many more nice yokes. Good job Salomon!

I highly recommend the ski for those who want a versatile allmountain skiing with good performance all over the mountain, especially if you plan to prioritize the pudding.

Strenghts:
Really fun skiing but many uses.

Playful easily and easily controllable that allows speed.

(Nice but me, extremely objective though. But anyway)

Weaknesses:
This ski deserves a 5a.

Did not find any of the days I had on the skis. And it was a day the skis were built for. So under the (typical Swedish) conditions I give them a big wow.

Summary:
A brief summary: For me who is a fairly easy skier (75kg) who goes quite versatile (10 season background as instructor and guide) and loves varied rides, I was extremely impressed with how easy these skis were already from the first run. Interestingly, the skis were tested one day with extremely nice conditions inside and outside the slopes. Soft everywhere with about 3 cm from snowfall from the day before.

The skis have a nice long radius that, with the help of the soft surface, could bend down from 20 meters radius to about 18 meters which is an extremely cozy radius to lie and carve on. Opposed speed well oh did not feel cordless at all.

When they were to be steered and driven in smaller and more controlled turns, the skid shape was very helpful, as they gave a lot of edge grip even in the smaller turns. The turns the skis would offer felt extremely under control and made me feel at home on the track already from year 1.

Stranged by the puckles on the track, they were inviting to challenge the balance and take the skies up in the air between the puckles and it was where you noticed how well balanced and light the skis were.

Understand why the skis have received great criticism in reviews before and look forward to going next year's iteration, said to be dropped several hundred grams. Will be exciting.

A top ski pass is me and is suitable for people who want to go varied, directional but in control.

Fits easier skiers with some technology I would like to say.

Stabila with good grip.

Weaknesses:
A little ugly

Summary:
Testing these on a ski test, they think they were very lovely to deal with. Fast and responsive. Possibly a bit fluttery at high speed, but still feels like a very good allround ski.

Strenghts:
Very allround and good for the most part. Stable and subdued yet a slight slope

Weaknesses:
Not as fun as previous skis like Rocker 2 108

Summary:
Clearly more skis than I expected but still easy to throw out the skis in the cord. Easy to get up and go in everything but ice-cream. The tip offers enormous float in loose nose. Perfect skid to mount a flatter turbine and have as a single ski everywhere

Strenghts:
versatility

Weaknesses:
By not being bad at anything, it's also not the best at all.

Summary:
I drove this ski for 3 months in Verbier and was extremely pleased, it's a fun and easy-going ski that's fast edge to edge. The wide nose makes you have good flow even in deeper snow conditions. However, if you like to drive off-shore and drool a lot of rocks, it's a good idea to stump your landings as the tail is quite short and tends to slip under you if you land too much backwards.

This is a skid for the skier who wants everything (in addition to being able to switch and rails stably), its narrow waistline makes it wonderful in the piste and the relatively light weight makes it even work well for those who like to ride sometimes.

My set is with Salomon MNC Guardian 16 mounted on the recommended.

The ski is rigid and responsive to ride on, but without being too aggressive. You feel the surface straight up in your thighs and I sense a feeling that I want to describe as crispy. Driving on a pair of QST feels almost like tensioning a pair of thin but durable, porcelain plates underneath the feet. The skis feel leafy, light and precise. There is not much in the skid that dampens the ground from me as a skier. The edge grip is exemplary and it is straightforward to change from one edge to the other. The twist stiffness allows you to push them hard without the slopes folding down.

However, QST has received a prize for its new, easier peak; Not quite unexpectedly, the top has become fluttery and feels a bit like an unnecessary part of the ski. Sure, I'm driving a pistil and see no soft and fluffy sneeze as far as the eye can reach. In such desirable and fairer conditions, such a top can certainly perform well, but here and now I do not really understand why the ski has got the design it received.

All in all; Salomon QST is the ski that lets you feel the piste, or the back, structure straight into the marrow. Get rid of skiing that rewards anyone who can ride on them fully.
