Salomon QST 92 Skis

Skiers looking for a super versatile all-mountain ski will love the well-balanced performance of the Salomon QST 92. Its moderate waist width along with a shape designed to handle any condition make it a great daily driver for those looking for more versatility than a frontside ski, but still want the ability to carve and handle firmer snow conditions. A poplar wood core along with a Carbon and Flax fiber weave create a smooth, stable and responsive flex without adding weight. The low weight plays into how maneuverable and easy-handling this ski is all over the mountain and makes it so the ski doesn't demand so much effort from the skier. A generous amount of rocker in the tip keeps you floating through soft snow and crud and it also helps make turn initiation very easy. The rocker profile in the tail isn't quite as pronounced, which works very well in this ski as it keeps the tail engaged through a turn, giving you the stability, you need, but you can still release the tail when desired as it does have some splay. A tapered shape in the tip keeps the ski true as it slices through soft or variable snow allowing it to not deflect. Through its endless versatility and balance of stability and playfulness, the QST 92 caters to a lot of different skiers looking for a well-rounded all-mountain ski.

Hi, I’m a long time skier (30+ years). I’m advanced intermediate, 5’8” and weigh around 220. I usually ski 25-30 days a year in mid-Atlantic, with one or two trips to Vermont, and am always on piste. Usually on blues and single diamonds. Got a pair of QST 92s last year, 169 cm (based on recommendation from ski shop). I generally like the ski, but feel a loss of control at higher speeds. Thinking of getting the 2022 QST 92s in 177cm, but wondering if I should be looking at 185s due to my size.
Question by: Daniel Owens on Sep 12, 2021, 9:29 PM
Hi Daniel,

The 177cm would be the size to go to, but not the 185. The 177cm would provide some additional stability at higher speeds.

Thanks

I’m an east coast skier, intermediate but progressing quickly. I currently have a pair of Mkndbender 99 ti’s that I really like but looking for something lighter and playful for learning to ski bumps and also for use on i y days. I’m thinking these might fit the bill but don’t see a whole lot of reviews about them. I’m 5’11 and 190lbs and looking at them in the 177 length. Would these be a good option? Any other recommendations?

Hi Matt!

The QST 92 is a surprisingly great fit here. The 92's are light enough to stay reactive and maneuverable but also have enough underfoot camber to really launch you out of turns. They do chatter a little in extremely icy conditions, but for Bumps, woods, and groomers it's a great choice.

I am a 5' 9" skier at 165 lbs with 10+ seasons under my belt and will be 18 when this ski season rolls around. I have a couple years of racing experience but have really fallen in love with tree skiing. I purchased a pair of K2 reckoners last year that are 102 underfoot and 184 in length and I've had a Rossignol smash 7 that are 92 underfoot and 170 in length. I'm looking for something similar underfoot to the Smash 7s, but a longer & nicer ski. I have come down to the mindbender 90Ti and this, the QST 92. Both are 177 length which is what I'd like, but I am unsure which of the two would be better for quick snappy turns in the trees - a fair carving ability would be appreciated, though. As I said, I am on the east/Vermont so I won't be dealing with much powder. Any insight would be really appreciated, thanks.
Question by: Luca on Jun 9, 2022, 1:21 AM
Hi Luca!

I think the QST 92 is the pick here. They're extremely light compared to the 90Ti and feel a lot more capable in the trees. The 90Ti is a superb on trail carver, but I would say it's a little too heavy to reliably be taken into the woods. They don't have the snappy turn initiation that the QST has. The QST feels energized like they want to break out in to short pop turns on a moments notice. You still get a fair amount of camber underfoot for icy groomer days so the QST 92 is really the full package for any aspiring all mountain explorer. Hope this helps!

Hello, I am going between the head kore 93 and the qst 92. I am 5'8 250lbs and ski NH/VT. I stick to mostly blues. Want to get into light trees. I would love an easy to turn ski with a bit more stability. I was thinking sticking to the 170 range. Which ski would be best with my weight? Am i overlooking another good affordable option? Thanks!
Question by: Dan on Jun 14, 2022, 8:05 AM
Hi Dan!
For the price and the versatility, there's not much else out there. This ski was highlighted in our Bargain Basement video recently as a deal and ski that we really like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KytQ2INzxso&t=168s
Head Kore 93 also made that list--it's a bit stiffer and lighter, so a different feel. If you are looking for more stability and an easy-going nature, I'd lean to the Salomon. Check out our deal in the 169: https://www.skiessentials.com/2022-salomon-qst-92-skis-w-tyrolia-attack2-14-gw-bindings.html

Hi, I 5'11" and 180 lbs. I have been skiing for 25 years and ski about 10-15 days a year in the Rocky Mountains and/or Japan. I would say that I primarily ski on piste, but love dipping into the trees, finding some fresh pow, and hitting small jumps and drops. I am looking at the QST 92s and thinking that 185 cm might be the way to go, but not positive. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.
Question by: Chris on Jul 4, 2022, 9:30 PM
HI Chris!
I totally think that ski works in that size. There's a lot of good stuff in the low to mid-90's range and the QST 92 is one of the best of them. Black Crows Serpo is another one worth a look--perhaps a bit more on-trail oriented. You're in the right zone for sure!

I am an expert level 6 foot 1 inch 230 pound skier. I will ski the east including Stowe so we are talking tight trees and bumps. Being a bit more on the narrow end of my quiver, short turn all mountain from fresh snow to groomer along with bump and tree focus, would this be best skied as a 177 or 185 for me? Thank you!
Question by: Brian on Sep 7, 2022, 11:14 AM
Hey Brian, I'm 6'3 and about 180lbs and I have been on the QST92 in the 185 length for about 5 years. I have used this ski as a backcountry ski in Vermont, Utah, Colorado etc... If i were to choose between the 177 and 185 for myself i would choose shorter if given the option. I have often found myself caught between trees in the tight pines and feel that a slightly shorter ski would have made my life a little easier. The shovel is very wide and offer great flotation to compensate for the slightly shorter ski. You will be impressed with the versatility of this ski.

I'm 6', 180 lbs, getting back into skiing, Intermediate/expert range. I'm a little older (63), skied a lot in younger days and looking for forgiving boards. The 2022 QST 92s in 177cm feels right, esp. the price. Thoughts?
Question by: Rick Green on Nov 16, 2022, 11:29 AM
Hey Rick!

The Salomon QST 92 at the 177cm length would be a perfect option for you. The QST 92 is going to be a super versatile ski that can handle any challenge that's thrown at it. It'll have a forgiving feeling for some fun and casual riding but can be super stable if you feel like riding like you did in your younger days. Hope this helps and don't be shy to watch our 2023 Ski Test videos at the bottom of the product page!

I am 70, but have skied all my life and still in good shape. I have been skiing several years on Salomon Rocker 2 90s cm 169. I still like softer. well shaped moguls and off piste skiing But, I am getting older and go into the double diamonds much less. I like a ski that is playful, quick edge to edge and easier to initiate turns like my old ones. Since I am getting older would you recommend the 2022 QST 92 or the new 2023 QST 92? I see the newer ones are described a more poppy with more power. I am not sure that is what I want although I can still ski at a pretty high level. Most people think I am in my 50s, but my older body knows better.
Question by: Rick on Nov 18, 2022, 8:28 PM
Hi Rick!

The 2023 QST 92's take more design ques from the new QST 98 which is to say this ski has more rocker in the tips and tails, a little more taper in the tip shortening up the turn radius, and the flax carbon laminate from the QST 98. I would say if you wanted to save a little money the 2022 is still a fantastic ski, I would only go with the 23 if having a more playful ski is a determining factor for you.
