QST Stella 106
$850 D: 136-106-124mm R: 20m The women of Powder Week agree: Salomon’s fleet-footed, hard-charging QST Stella crushes. It has the same construction as the unisex QST, but is available in lengths as short as 159. This season, the big update to the collection is a basalt layer added to the core to reduce chatter and increase smoothness. Plus, Salomon’s C/FX³, a woven blend of carbon and flax, debuts as a full edge-toedge layer, where in previous QST models, it was an insert into the poplar core. A Titanal insert brings the heat to this energetic, aggressive, dual-rockered ski.
