THE REVOLT 104

 

In April 2018, Schinka approached the team to develop an all new, all mountain ski - the REVOLT 104. The testing and developing of the Revolt 121 was still on going and the athletes involved were the perfect all-rounders to work on this new product. The first REVOLT 104 prototype was tested that September in Bariloche, Argentina.

THE

ARTISTS

The visual design is also being handled in the same spirit as the rest of the campaign, with various international artists invited to work with our hero skiers on dreaming up a fresh look for the skis.

KEN GRIFFEN

The ski graphics for the 2019/20 season are designed by New Zealand artist Ken Griffen, himself a passionate skier. "For me it was a perfect project, and the collaboration with the athletes was really something special. You could see the knowledge and experience flowing together into a design that really took on an identity of its own.“

»This project was really perfect for me because I have a passionate background in skiing«

KEN GRIFFEN I ARTIST I New Zealand

»The painting is an illustration of what your brain looks like when you are happy and your mind is full of endorphins, a feeling very familiar to skiers. The base graphic is a person’s face looking up at a mountain with excitement for the line they are planning in their mind.«

BEN BROUGH

The ‘Built Together’ story continues across the globe, our featured artist this year is Ben Brough with his ‘Spirit Animal’ collection.

Ben lives in the costal city of Costa Mesa, California. Growing up on surf culture he is rooted to nature and action sports.  Self-taught; from an early age Ben knew he wanted to be an artist but wasn’t quite sure what that meant.

As an artist, Ben is known to work in the mediums of painting, collage and sculpture. His poetic childlike scrawl evokes a raw mythical impact with humorous undertones.

»Everyone has the animal instinct in them«

BEN BROUGH I ARTIST I USA

» I like the animal graphics of the new skis, especially the fox. The fox as a spirit animal encourages action and quick, swift moves just like the playful 104.«

The

CREW

An unbridled passion for skiing and global mountain culture are shared obsessions that link not just our athletes, but also our engineers and commissioned artists as well. »BUILT TOGETHER« is intended to capture this devotion, welding it with our unmatched knowledge of product expertise. It`s mission is to pursue new paths and create something extraordinary in the process. The idea is to directly involve the athletes in ski development, with the goal of creating skis that fit their wants and desires perfectly.

Paddy Graham I Team Rider

»I've always enjoyed taking part in product development, but this time the athletes are more strongly involved than in any project before. We all spend a lot of time traveling and skiing all around the world in all kinds of conditions. If we take our experience and blend it with the brilliance of the engineers, there's this fantastic chance to make a truly remarkable ski «

MARKUS EDER I Team Rider

»It’s awesome that Völkl brought us all down here. It really helps a lot that we are not emailing each other across different countries. It is really important that we are here building it together.«
