2020 Salomon QST 92 Skis
2020 Salomon QST 92 Skis
The 2020 Salomon QST 92 skis have been re-tooled for this year to be lighter, stiffer, and more responsive than ever. Skiers will love the versatility of these skis, as they certainly cross a few thresholds in terms of terrain and snow capabilities. Skis that can handle a bunch of different things in the same run are highly desirable, and at 92 mm underfoot, these skis are highly utilitarian and will satisfy a lot of different skier types and abilities. Thanks to the shape, profile, and construction, the 2020 Salomon QST 92 skis are perfect for advanced skiers who love to ski the whole mountain. That 92 mm waist produces a turn radius of 18-meters at the 177 cm length, and this is great for both carving turns on groomers as well as ripping pow turns in the back bowls. When you point them down the hill, you'll love how the tip rocker eases you into the turn. It's a very easy and effortless ski, but the camber underfoot digs in and rips you through the carve, so that even on the hardest of snows, the QST 92 is up to the task at hand. The tail rocker allows you to release from your turns easily and quickly, and you'll love how it works in powder by not letting the skis get hooky or grabby. The 2020 Salomon QST 92 skis are the ultimate all-mountain tool.

The 92 is updated for 2020 while the 85 remains the same as the 2019. The shape and build has changed a bit, but if you're looking for a strong all-mountain performer for eastern conditions, I'd say the 85 is the way to go, but there's nothing wrong with that 92! It's a great ski with a bit of extra width. Have fun!
I am currently trying to decide if I buy the Salomon QST 92 or the XDR 88. I will be doing 50% on piste and 50 off. Also using them for Speed Riding too.
Any Advice will be brilliant
I ski mostly in Australian conditions, slush, ice, bumps, hardpack etc, and I’m looking for an all mountain ski that could handle all conditions including a few days in Japan each year. Mostly on groomed, but keen to explore the whole mountain. Not too heavy is preferable. I’m 5’11” and 78kgs - intermediate to advanced. Am looking at the Salomon QST 92 or K2 Mindbender 90. Any suggestions- and what length do you recommend.
Quick turns are right in the Kanjo's wheelhouse. While the QST will likely offer more versatility and decent groomer performance, it sounds like you're describing a Kanjo skier to me. The QST does come in an 85, which I thought was a better comparison to the Kanjo, so that is worth a second look I'd say. Have fun!
