They say

Get ready to charge with the QST 99. Laps in the back bowl powder, climbing a ridgeline or flying down your favourite runs in resort, the QST 99 has it all covered.

We say

Compared to last year’s QST the new beefier construction makes itself felt, it feels very strong and has high levels of grip through all turn shapes. It’s stable at speed and generally feels like a really capable all rounder, it has the ability to be easy to use in powder while retaining good grip and solidity on the hardpack. Because of it’s width and profile it doesn’t have the instant float through the shovel that a lot off the fatter skis we tested have in deep powder, but it’s still playful and easy enough to be great fun

Not overly stiff so can be skied easily at all speeds
