Technical info:
Völkl´s new fibreglass series is inspired by BMT´s carbon fibre series. Both series have profiled upper surfaces. This gives more torsional stiffness and stiffness in the length direction. The sidecut radius is relatively short. Long, low and consistent rocker through the entire length. The construction is relatively light. A long setback gives wide tips.

On snow:
It´s light and easy to maneuver and the edge grip is firm. Despite the lightness, it inspires confidence on varied surfaces. This is mainly due to the rocker. A stable ski that is easy to control at high and low speed on various surfaces. If we have to pick on something it would have to be the lack of playfulness, which could be a result of the stiff tips. On the other hand, the stiff tips offer good support when carving the turns. A very good choice if you want to use ski touring bindings, and at the same time need good edge grip.
