They say

The QST LUX 92 is lightweight and stable, boosting your confidence as you carve on hard snow, hit the moguls or explore some of the steepest corners of the mountain

We say

The new construction on the QST gives this ski a surprising amount of power for this sort of ski. In long fast turns it feels super comfortable and delivers a high level of grip. It’s another ski that has a powerful tail, which maintains grip and acceleration through to the end of the turn and gives it the ability to blast through crud. On hardpack it works well, with longer turns being the favorite option. Away from the groomers and into the backcountry it’s great fun, with lots of energy and reaction from the shape, although serious powder addicts will long for a wider platform

Tester Comments

Rowena Phillips
Has a stiffer tail, great fun in longs and will be a powerful charging ski off piste
