Strenghts:
The float, simple and playfulness

Weaknesses:
Odd parties in the piste and puckles

Summary:
Extremely nice skiing used in Japan. Trives perfectly in open terrain and floats in wonderfully. Surprisingly playful, if you plan to go skiing, Qst 118 is incredibly fun as it is surprisingly easy to maneuver and does not require much of you as a skier.

In a piste it goes out of line quite ok, but as soon as it gets out of bed, I feel it becomes unstable. At the same time, this skiing should not be used there, but in beautiful cushions on la Japan, Canada or the United States.

In summary, qst is great for pillows. The move and maneuverability make the team a very fun and easy ski that you can keep up with speed without flutter or that the ski is unstable. If you are considering buying a pair of pillows, you should definitely try to test them.

Strenghts:
Playful skiing that works in many different situations on the mountain, ranging from off-piste to piste.

Weaknesses:


Summary:
Skiing for the skier who wants to get around the mountain without having to change ski, the wide skid can initially scare you but when the ski is going to show its best, it works best!

Riding style: Powder
Length on the ski: 185 cm

Strenghts:
Surfy, playful, quick and easy to maneuver among the trees in thigh-high powder. Most enjoyable moments I've had on a couple of skis.

Weaknesses:
The low rice on the tip allows you to get stuck in vegetation both up and down. Haven't tried them on blue ice in piste yet but suspect it is not its best branch.

Summary:
QST 118 is a really playful ski. I swapped out my awesome Völkl Shiro * (193cm with alpine setup) just to be able to shine up fairly light and smooth and to have really fun performing in the January fluff offered at Hokkaido. Was a bit cranky on QST 106 (for a little wider use in Scandinavia and Europe) but the choice fell on QST 118 (185cm). In combination with a techbinding - ATK Race Free Raider 14, 2.0 - these teams did not do away with it in any way. Absolutely fun in the light powder. Very fast to maneuver, really surfable and easy to set up for a speed-check with the right sturdy rocker in the back.

Strenghts:
Cruel, versatile skid that's calm and safe, how hard it is to ride and work swine-fitting even in the lifts and harder surfaces.

Weaknesses:
Not much to complain about, it's rather boring in the design.

Summary:
Have never been so happy with a ski trip from the first trip. And what's fun is that all days are a good afternoon regardless of weather and before! I am a medium-sized rider who drives playfully. No double cork but I'm on. :)
