Volkl 90Eight Skis 2016

The all new Volkl 90Eight replaces the long standing Bridge as an all mountain do anything ski for the strong intermediate to expert rider looking for stability and versatility anywhere on the mountain. The 90Eight is made with the new 3D Ridge Technology that reduces the total weight of the ski, delivers a powerful distribution of pressure to the edges of your skis, and gives the ski a prefect flex pattern for carving turns, and charging in the off trail terrain. The 3D Ridge Technology has a thinner construction over the sidewalls and a raised ridge on the center of the ski to lower the amount of inertia the ski requires for quick turning and maneuverability. Early Taper in the tip gives the 90Eight improves the flotation and steering in the fresh snow, by not allowing the tips or tails of the ski to get grabbed by the pow. Tip rocker will keep the tips above the snow, absorb negative vibrations caused by crud, and initiate turns faster for you. Camber underfoot delivers a strong edge hold on the snow. Rocker in the tail allows the 90Eight to dump speed and surf in the powder, while releasing you from turns easier. Volkl's Multi-Layer Wood Core has Ash underfoot to give the ski rigidity and prevents binding screws from pulling out. Poplar wood in the tip and tail give a nice and even flex to the 90Eight while keeping the weight down. The new Volkl 90Eight will be a fantastic ski for anyone looking for stability, maneuverability and versatility. [+]
