Volkl Nanuq Touring Skis 2017

The Nunaq touring skis from Volkl balance the uphill with the down. SkinPin technology lets you insert a pin type skin into their tip, which is lighter and more secure than hoops that go over the tip of the ski. Their relatively trim 96mm underfoot platform cuts the fat while leaving just enough width with descents in mind. To keep the weight of the ski down without sacrificing binding retention, Volkl uses their Woodcore Light technology that is made from beech and poplar. Light is right when you're draggin yourself up a few thousand vertical to get the goods. Though each ski weighs just 1490g each in the 170cm length, they still have burly edges and full sidewalls. What that means in skiing terms is they have kept the heart of a performance downhill ski in the Nunaq because nobody likes to ski epic backcountry lines on a noodley ski, right?

  • Reported Weight: 1490g per ski @170cm

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

Multi Layer Wood Core Light: A combination of poplar and beech wood combines lightweight properties with durability underfoot for binding screw retention. Wood is the lightest and snappiest core material out there. That means "pop" lar wood is named aptly named, right?

SkinPin Touring Technology: Volkl Touring models feature the Skin Pin system. The skin is affixed to the ski's tip using a built-in pin. One 90-degree rotation and it's attached. The result is a 100% reliable mount. The system can be checked visually from above, ensuring that the skier has complete control at all times. In a pinch, the hole in the ski tip can also be used to convert the skins into a rescue toboggan or a sled.
