The modern freeride skier will appreciate the added responsiveness provided by the 2023 updates to the Salomon QST 92 profile. The freeride shape is aimed at the intermediate all-mountain skier who spends the majority of their day playing in the bumps and sidecountry. The double sidewall underfoot provides the ski with a strong edge that keeps the skis strong and stable on the hard pack.
- Full Poplar Wood core – The lightness of a full wood core helps create a ski that is light enough to take on powder, while also strong enough to remain versatile and agile on the groomers.
- Ti Binding Reinforcement – A titanal insert runs the length of the skis to provide increased edge hold, providing the skier with more control and stability on hard snow.
- C/FX – An interwoven carbon and flax fiber layer provides the skis with additional strength and stability while maintaining a damp ride that doesn't jeopardize the overall weight of the skis.
