Manufacturers description
The legendary QST 106 is the ultimate freeride ski. It can handle anything you put in front of it and is the most versatile platform we’ve ever made. Slash through soft snow, lay trenches in hardpack and conquer the steepest lines without a second thought. The new freeride benchmark is here. Full Sandwich Sidewalls guarantees stability and precision, it enhances performance by providing good edge grip and smooth ski-to-snow contact. The patented and exclusive C/FX technology is elevated to the next level of performance by being supercharged with two times more carbon and balanced with basalt to keep its superior dampening and vibration absorption properties. Cork is three times more absorbing than Koroyd. Using it in the tip of the ski enables a high level of vibration absorption and dampening with even less weight.

Strenghts:
Stable, flexible

Weaknesses:
No

Summary:
Only ridden a week so far, 80% summit trip but with a very mixed surface. Am impressed! Changed from a similar, previous Salomon model from type 2013 and experiences better stability and less flutter even though the weight of these is several hg lower! Nice to get confirmation that the development is progressing!

Did not try really light fresh snow but drove in soft drive snow and strongly affected by the wind. On the other hand, I feel that they can handle both hard and soft really well. Even sticky cuddly snow goes well.

I think the weight goes well for the summit trip. But if you really do nothing but walk up the mountains, they are in the heaviest team.

Strenghts:
Fantastic all round.
Good carving properties.
Moved in pillows in its width.
The relationship between weight and performance.

Weaknesses:
The tip flutters on hard ground at higher speeds.

Summary:
The ski delivers performance in both piste and powder which is a difficult equation to get together.
It is very fun to carve with the piste at the same time as it floats well in powders and is relatively stable when it is uneven and driven.
The combination of flow, stability and suppleness of powder together with the carving performance is what makes skiing so good.

About the ski: Salomon QST 106 has been transformed into 2019/2020. New dimensions and new materials. Front and back have been put in cork instead of previous honeycomb material. Equally twisted, but more easy-going according to Solomon. In stores it comes with color matching Warden binding.

Olle: - A good ski! It's really good! In the piste it is nice before today, it was possible to go fast with them both in short and long turns. Outside, it also went well, very easily. Very soft front and back, easy to play around on. At a slightly higher speed the unstable. I drove 181 cm and would have liked the long meadow. A really all-round ski! Rating 4.

Max: - A really fun ski, playful. I'm happy with it! In the piste I like that it is playful, soft in both top and bottom. Not responsive at high speed and big turns, then it is not fancy and then I would have liked more response. In shorter turns it was quick and fun. Outside it floated well and was easy to ride, cruel to cross between Swedish mountain birches. Rating 4.

CROSS RATE: 4

Strenghts:
Easy to drive.
Works both in the piste and off-piste.
Doesn't feel like it's as wide as it is.

Weaknesses:
The tips flutter in higher speeds but I have not noticed any weaknesses with it. Something many have complained about on the 17/18 ski.

Summary:
Easy to drive, works anywhere and great price.

Strenghts:
Good everywhere!
Best ski in this width I tried in powder!
stable
Easily swung both inside and outside the piste

Weaknesses:
Not if you realize the limitations of a ski below 2kg compared to one that weighs 2.5kg.

Summary:
An awesome all-round ski I had both in Åre and the Alps, works well as single ski.
Easy to get rid of in bad snow and is fun in the piste. Best ski in this width I tried in powder!
Works well everywhere without being the best at something which is exactly what it should do!

Strenghts:
A very fun and fast ski.
Despite the wide waist and long radius, it is still relatively fast from edge to edge.
Also got the chance to try it in better pillows where it was very nice.
versatile skiing that works in most environments.
The 18/19 model is very nice in my taste.

Weaknesses:
The tip could be somewhat fluttery in higher traffic, but did not see it as a major problem.
Requires some from you as a skier.

Summary:
I think Salomon has managed to get a very nice ski which is very fun and fast in the piste, while it is very well off the piste. A ski that can really be recommended for those who have good experience from the mountain and consider themselves a good skier. It's very versatile and really works all over the mountain. As said, it requires some of you as a skier to make sure you have fun on them.

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
