Structure - Construction

  • 3D. Ridge  :

    It has become a symbol of Völkl lightweight construction. The distinctive characteristic of this technology is a raised central ridge that sharply levels out toward the edge, both in front of and behind the binding. This reduces the inertial mass around the fulcrum to a minimum and significantly enhances the agility of the ski. At the same time, the center ridge allows for a precise dimensioning of the hardness distribution, which leads to an especially harmonious flex on the ski. Despite the weight savings, the 3D.RIDGE ensures that there is no compromise whatsoever in the ski‘s durability and elasticity.

  • Carbon Stringer  :

    Specific construction ensuring exceptional lightweight, consistent flex and an optimal weight/torsional stiffness ratio.

  • Full Sidewall  :

    Strength and efficiency. A simple process you can always count on.

  • Multi Layer Woodcore  :

    Völkl freeskiing models feature a multi-layer wood core with two different densities of wood. In the binding attachment area, a dense, ash core is used, while in the rest of the ski, the core is poplar. The more dense wood creates secure screw retention and stability, while the softer poplar section allows for resilience and snap. The flex pattern can be tailored to each ski model to match the desired performance characteristics.

Camber type

  • Flat camber  :

    Enhances ski pivot without compromising edge control on hard snow.

Technology

  • Full Rocker  :

    The running length of the edge can vary at the fore part of the ski. The rocker rises moderately. The running length under the binding provides an efficient floatation better than the one found on wider skis.

Rocker type

  • Tip and tail rocker  :

    Full length rocker perfect for surfing powder. It floats easily and ensures smooth and effortless turns. Landings are easier too.
