Manufacturers description
Whether you are doing laps in back-bowl powder, dropping down a steep line or flying down your favorite groomers, the QST 99 gives you the confidence to always push your limits. 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.

 Salomon QST 99 in model year 2020 has been added twice as much carbon fiber as compared to previously in the fabric called C / FX. This is balanced with the rock basalt so as not to get nervous skiing (so that the carbon fiber doesn't feel like "a chi wau wau on 3 shots espresso", as team rider Cody Towsend said about the QST series a few years ago), this gives one more cushioned and vibration-proof version of the almountain ski QST 99. The core of the ski is still wood-punched poplar and this is also reinforced with a frame of popular ski material titanal (an aluminum variant). Solomon has also put cork in the top instead of the hive material Koroyd, and this because cork is three times more absorbent than Koroyd. The rocker profile is "All-Terrain" (why should all brands find their own words for this ... moan and yawn!), Which means rocker in the nose, span under foot and small rocker in the back. So whether you go for a little powder, run a steep slope, or flutter around a bit - Salomon QST 99 love gives you the confidence to rip everywhere. Quote from the test riders: “This ski has a syllable edge grip and likes to go fast! Stable at high speed and easy to maneuver in the off-piste "and:" QST 99 can be the ski for those looking for a nice mix of off-piste and piste skiing. "

Strenghts:
Capable all-round ski

Weaknesses:
Can be experienced as unstable due to the light construction at the top.

Summary:
Åre, April 2018.

The sun's rays inexorably transform the morning's hard-rock manchester into the glass-like substance, which, after many skis and pressures, makes the piste the ice-skating rink of ice and snow drifts that either love or hate. The ski from Salomon, which is found in the middle of the width spectrum of their QST line, thrives superbly in these conditions. It is one, for its width, swift ski from edge to edge that does not get rid of on the harder ground and that brilliantly and comes to its right in the soft sorbene that spring's lovely skiing offers.

QST 99 is a capable ski for the piste in all its phases, which also works outside the marked slopes when the powder settles between trees and over rocks. If you are looking for a pair of skis that can be your companion during the midwinter ice cold mornings as well as in the spring sun's slush afternoons, QST 99 is a couple you should definitely put on your shortlist.

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 powder where it floated very nicely.
versatile ski that works in most environments.
The 18/19 model is very nice in my taste.

Weaknesses:
The tip could become somewhat fluttery in higher speeds but did not see it as a major problem.

Summary:
I think Salomon has managed to get a very nice ski that is very funny and fast in the piste, while it is very nice outside the piste. A ski that can really be recommended for those who have good experiences from the mountain and consider themselves a good skier. It is very versatile and really works all over the mountain. As said, it requires a lot from you as a skier for you to have maximum fun on them.

Strenghts:
They are easy to swing with and give good confidence in varied conditions. It runs like a medium-speed rail in medium-sized pistes. Also fun to go more playfully in the run-up and soft snow as well. Really fun outside the piste with decent flow.

Weaknesses:
I would not trust them when it is icy. There are more stable skis in the same weight class (Head Kore 99 I think about).

Summary:
With a pair of Atomic Shift bindings mounted, these are the ultimate all-mountain / freeride / top-travel combos. They are just right for short and medium-length top tours without compromising on the ride. They are not the most stable, but you should still be in reasonable speed for it to feel uncertain, especially if you are not heavy. Should I travel somewhere with a pair of skis then these are the ones that keep up (as long as the focus is not deep powder).

I have the bindings mounted according to the recommendation at the moment, but I will probably move them to -1 cm to make them feel a little longer and more stable and get a little better flow in the powder.

Good and fun skiing with nice ice grip. A little too soft in the range for my taste. Good offpiste and flow. The tail rocker is a bit too small to be playful. Good all-round properties. Grade 4.

Strenghts:
Lightweight and nice skiing, works everywhere. Surprisingly easy to do short turns its long turning radius.

Weaknesses:
Odd pistons, small piles in the turns and it ends with slipping around in the turns.

Summary:
Soft coat, scratch very easy. Though I'm happy with the ski qualities, I would probably have chosen another just because of this. Being expensive to always file it for repair ...

Nothing too icy slopes.

Strenghts:
Very playful skiing that works on the whole mountain! It should definitely not be underestimated in the powder with its 99cm in the waist, I have traveled with them on very deep days without any problems.

Weaknesses:
They can be a bit uncertain at high speeds on an ice piste when they are not used to being so flexible in the nose, but as soon as they get used to it, they are delighted to ride on the mountain!

Summary:
If you want a ski that can be used every day throughout the season then this is a good alternative

Strenghts:
Easy and playful

Weaknesses:
Not 100% reliable in piste

Summary:
A superb ski for those seeking a 100% playful and poppy ski to play with in and out of the piste. At high speeds, its very easy hints make it impossible to feel completely safe and dare to squeeze fully with the skid. It has very little metal in it, but it is almost entirely made of wood, and as is said, it comes with only pros and cons.
