The newly developed Smart Skinclip system allows the ski tourer to decide for himself, depending on the situation, in which direction he should pull the skin on and off.
Carbon Fiber Functional Placement
In this construction carbon fibers are no longer incorporated as a uniform fleece.
In this construction carbon fibers are no longer incorporated as a uniform fleece. They are integrated through a stitching process in such a way that their orientation and strength meet the functional requirements of each part of the ski. As the tip and the tail are the most influencial sections on a ski the carbon fibres are concentrated exactly in these areas. As a result the power transmission is extremely precise and liveliness and energy are accesible with minimal effort.
Titanal is an isotropic high-tech aluminium alloy that delivers smoothness, great dampening, direct power transfer and stability, resulting in a very powerful and precise ski. The alloy is placed inside the ski in various positions and layers as required according to its desired ride characteristics.
IPT Lowride XL
Especially for wider skis: 10 mm lower stand height for increased agility and better edge grip
3 Radius Sidecut
Three radii in one ski for maximum turning & speed versatility in all mountain skiing
More damping and stability over the full length of the ski
3D.GLASS is Völkl’s development to furthermore improve overall ski performance and stability even in critical snow conditions.
Compared to classic glass constructions the three-dimensional and multiple-folded glass layers in the tip and in the tail area result in an increased edge grip and a more vivid rebound behavior in turns.
UVO is the first freely rotating, vibration damper to apply cutting-edge vibration dampening technology in order to minimize disruptive ski vibration.
The terrain below the ski inevitably generates vibrations, which in turn set the shovel into motion. This significantly disrupts the smoothness of the ski-ride, and makes it harder to hold an edge. The revolutionary UVO technology works against this, through proven dampening in the form of reduced vibrations in the horizontal and vertical directions as well as along the length of the ski.
More performance AND less weight? Impossible. Right? No, it‘s not! And the exclusive V.WERKS High Tech line prooves this.
It impressively demonstrates the possibilities of state of the art technology. This custom line focuses on revolutionary designs that trim every possible gram, which results in the exclusive use of expensive materials like carbon, aramid and titanium.
Völkl Rocker Construction
Rocker constructions go together with skis just like snow goes with winter – once you experience the joy, you‘ll never go back.
While rocker technologies are not themselves new, having entered into all categories of our collection some years ago, they currently play an important role in the VÖLKL PERFECT SETUP. Once tailored with the correct flex profile and sidecut to the specific target audience, each different rocker construction provides enormous benefits to the skier, and almost all models end up with much better handling performance while requiring less exertion. To achieve this, we calculate the optimal version of the rocker line for each individual ski model.
