Volkl 100Eight Skis 2016

The Volkl 100Eight has some big shoes to fill but it steps up to the plate and knocks it out of the park. The 100Eight is the replacement for the long living, best selling and best skiing Gotama. Made with 3D Ridge Technology the 100Eight has a thinner construction over the sidewalls and a raised ridge in the center of the ski in front of and behind the binding plate to lower the total weight of the ski. Having a raised ridge in the center of the ski lowers the inertia, delivers very precise pressure distribution, improves the stability and provides the optimal amount of flex to give you more power and control than ever before. Early Taper in the tip of the 100Eight improves the soft snow skiing ability to prevent the tip from getting grabbed by deep snow. A Full Rocker Profile gives you awesome flotation, a high amount of maneuverability and full edge contact when the ski is engaged into a turn. Volkl's Multi Layer Wood Core has Poplar in the tip and tail and has a rounded and even flex. Ash Wood underfoot is stronger to reduce the chances of pulling out a binding screw and rigidity underfoot. If you're an advanced to expert skier looking for power and stability in a ski that will be great in powder and blaze deep trenches on a groomer, the new Volkl 100Eight is the one to have. [+]
