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:
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

Riding style: 50/50 pist / offpist

Riders length: 188 cm

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.

Riding style: Pist and stable offpiste

Salomon QST 106 is a skid that is very easily maneuvered, but at the same time stable. With a lot of pop in the skate, many fun hours await, while it will be ready for faster speeds. With the same construction as his sister, Stella 106, QST is made of wood core.
