What Salomon says about the QST X

“Harnessing know-how from years of building the world’s most versatile skis, we tasked our athletes from around the globe to deliver a new level of drift, power and finesse for the deepest and steepest of days. The result – QST X! Cork Damplifier inserts in the tip and the tail pair with our lightweight karuba and poplar woodcore, Flax/Carbon Superlight Fibers and an all-new freeride profile (translation – more rocker!) to make this ski your ideal powder partner.

A must-have for all powder enthusiasts seeking their next adrenaline-fueled outings, Salomon’s QST X skis are made for bold runs in deep snow. With a wide 116 mm underfoot and big rocker profile, these light skis are made for surfing, drifting, and floating through endless fresh powder while remaining reliable in diverse terrains and conditions.”
