Salomon QST Lumen 99 Women's Skis
The Salomon QST Lumen 99 offers endless versatility for any and all conditions encountered at the resort. The QST line from Salomon has remained a favorite amongst a wide range of skiers due to the fact that they meet the demands of high-level skiers yet are very approachable to more conservative skiers who would prefer a less demanding ski. The QST Lumen 99 is built with Salomon's classic Poplar wood core as well as their C/FX material which is a blended strip of Carbon, Basalt, and Flax which provides power, strength and stability to the ski. In the tip you'll find a Cork Damplifier. This might seem odd, but Cork actually provides a lot of damping properties which helps to keep the ski quiet at high speeds and in choppy snow. The 99-milliemeter waist width is perfect for both floating and carving, and with a 19-meter turn radius, this sidecut really allows you to make any turn shape you want. You can shorten up the turn shape but it's not so demanding that it requires you consistently on edge. I nice bit of rocker in the tip offers great floatation as well as smooth and effortless turn initiation. Taper in both the tip and the tail give the ski the ability to pivot easily when is great when you find yourself in some, tighter or steeper terrain where you need to make a more pivoted turn. The Salomon QST Lumen 99 is a prime example of a ski that can really do it all and ladies looking for the epitome of versatility will really enjoy this ski.

These skis are extremely close but are slight different when it comes to shape. You'll find slightly more tail rocker in the Lumen and a shallower tip rocker angle compared to the QST. The Lumen also doesn't feature as much camber or taper in the tips as the QST so its going to be a little more planted while on edge but with a little less pop out of the turn. A good way to see the Lumen is its like a different flavor of the QST 99, same general formula but with a couple tweaks here and there to refine it. This ski is certainly a lot closer to the QST 99 than the new QST 98 is so I think you would find what your looking for with the Lumen.
