Think of the Volkl 90EIGHT women's skis as a pair of fat skis that won't weigh you down. They are wide enough to work as your powder skis, but tear up the whole mountain with gusto we thought was surprising for their somewhat ample width. Their torsional rigidity, and zeal for chatter reduction can likely be chalked up to their 3D ridge construction and carbon stringers. While their sidecut does have a 'chargey' look and feel, on edge on a groomer they fling from edge to edge with energetic confidence in tight turns. Tip and tail rocker helps advanced and expert skiers alike with turns on hardpack as much is it does with float in the deep stuff.

Description

Details

  • Reported Weight: 1530g per ski

Carbon Stringer: Carbon stringers are used to add stiffness without adding weight. That makes a ski handle more responsively while keeping lightweight. You're only as good as your legs, so a light ski is a nimble ski so you can charge without tiring out.

Volkl 3D Ridge Technology: 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.

Moderate Taper: Moderate Taper lightens up the tip and tail of the ski a bit so that you are't fighting too much swing weight as you bring your turns around from one edge to the other. It realizes, however, that all things are best in moderation. This maxim holds true in this instance because to much weight reduction in your tips and tails reduces the inertia of the ski for resisting deflections to its direction. A perfect balance is struck between weight that drives the ski and nimbleness.

Sidewall Construction: Full Sidewall/Sandwich boards are more rigid and great at dampening vibrations when riding at high speeds.

Volkl Tip and Tail Rocker: With a slight rocker in the tip and tail, combined with a classic camber profile under the foot, Völkl engineers have created the ideal blend for frontside carving. Easy, smooth turn entry and exit, with acceleration and rebound as well. The new Extended Tip/Tail Rocker features an elongated rocker profile beginning in front of the toe piece and ‘extending’ toward the tip. A prime example of all elements of ski design coming together, the extension of the rocker allows a stiffer tip flex and more open sidecut radius, promoting stability, turn initiation, and playfulness ALL AT ONCE.

Product Questions


Product Questions

Can I select cheaper bindings? $499 for the Kingpin bindings is way outside my budget.

Is this the same as the "men's" 90Eight, or is it different, a-la the Mantra vs the Aura?

Thanks!
