The Salomon QST LUX 92 2020/21 remains largely unchanged from last year, so our 2019/20 review of the Salomon QST LUX 92, below, still stands.
Salomon have included a number of their cutting-edge technologies in the QST LUX. The Spaceframe 3.0 AMB construction is comprised of an inverted 3D woodcore with a carbon flax and a titanal power transfer platform, and the Salomon C/FX3 technology is a carbon and natural flax fiber composite that gives both power and dampening properties to the ski, while remaining lightweight.
It also features an ABS sidewall round the entire ski and total edge reinforcement, plus a rubber pulse pad helps to absorb vibrations and improve ski-snow contact for a smoother ride.
To tackle the common 'chatter' in softer freeride skis, salomon have used a lightweight honeycomb koroyd tip, reinforced with ABS. The increased dampening with super light materials gives a 'more float, less flop' performance - sounds good to us!
The Salomon all terrain rocker 2.0 has a slight rise in the tip and tail giving added control in variable snow off piste and helping with easy turn initiation. while the camber of the ski gives full length contact for stability and edge hold in firmer conditions and on groomed pistes.
At just £400 the QST LUX 92 is a great value freeride ski for intermediate to advanced skiers wanting to get out and explore the mountain. We recommend pairing with the matching Warden 11 binding to compliment the gorgeous teal graphics, so you'll look and feel the part on the mountain.
