They say

The QST Lux 92 blends terrain adaptation, energy and a smooth ride. Built on a spaceframe construction with full wood core, it balances piste power and soft snow flotation.

We say

The QST was another ski that can cover a broad range of use. In the powder its wide platform, early rocker and soft flex means that it has instant float, is very easy to maneuver and can be great fun in any off piste conditions. It’s a playful, fun ski that can float through anything. On the hardpack and pistes it gives out a surprising amount of grip for this type of ski, particularly in longer faster arcs. In short turns on the piste the tip doesn’t grip as well and they can be slow from edge to edge, but overall, a great freeride ski!

Tester Comments

Rowena Phillips
Smooth, reliable and great fun with a ride that copes with tough conditions really well
Hannah Luke
These skis put a smile on my face , off piste they floated through the deep snow, yet they were also stiff and aggressive enough to ski well on steeps
