Alpine Ski Volkl VTA 80

Ski sold without binding.

Did you get infected by the virus too? Ski touring is an addiction and we know that well but instead of fighting this addiction we’re just going to help make it worse. We’re evil aren’t we? Throw your old skis away, quit renting and get yourself a pair of VTA 80, a great Volkl touring ski with an incredible value for money. 

What can the Volkl VTA 80 touring ski do? 

It is an entry-level touring ski, designed to comply with the needs of newcomers, for those who want to discover the intense satisfaction of reaching the peak by the sole traction of their legs. The VTA 80 weighs only 1250g in 170cm which means it works well when the path points uphill. You won’t burn your legs too fast and you should have enough energy left to enjoy the descent, descent on which the ski turns into a good performer by the way. Featuring a rockered tip doing a great job keeping the turning easy, it also maximises the ski versatility by offering a predictable conduct in variable conditions. You’ll appreciate how smooth the ski feels on the slopes. However, if the narrow 80mm waist makes the ski light and nimble, you’ll have to sacrifice a bit of floatiness on deep powder. The real main advantage of this ski is its pricetag. Combine it with a binding like the Scout from Diamir or the TLT Speed Turn by Dynafit and you get a very good set to start touring with. 

Who is the Volkl VTA 80 touring ski designed for? 

Ski touring was considered an exclusive sport for ages but things have changed, the equipment is more and more affordable and easier to use. The VTA 80 is the perfect example, it’s an entry-level touring ski suited for a large crowd of skiers who look for price and quality at the same time.

Structure - Construction

  • Tourlite Woodcore

Camber type

  • Classic camber  :

    When the ski sits flat on the ground, the tip and the tail are in contact with it while the midsection rises above. It is this section that maximises the energy transmission towards the edge, ideal for piste skiing. It also provides a rebound which enhances energy return and pop.

Technology

  • Tip-Rocker  :

    The ski has a variable edge length in the shovel area. The rocker height is moderate. The variable edge length in the shovel area makes the ski easier to turn. The cambered area underneath the foot and at the tail provides control and support for novices and intermediates.

Rocker type

  • Tip rocker  :

    Skis are more manoeuvrable, contact points on the skis are placed in order to reduce the effective running length, which allows easier pivot and a better float.
