Technical info:
Inuk is a slightly modernized version of the classic all-mountain carver, with some rocker in front. Like the other ski touring models in the test, Völkl have focused on low weight, without overdoing it. The flex is average in front and stiff at the back. It has relatively large turning radius and the sidecut goes all the way, which means there is no taper.

On snow:
With its narrow body and large turning radius, the Inuk gives you the feeling of racing giant slalom on melted snow crust. In our view, the rocker construction didn’t make much of a difference. They are easy to turn, but skidding is another matter. In powder conditions you have to adjust your technique to keep floating. A well constructed ski that oozes quality. However, there are models with better flotation and maneuverability in difficult conditions.

This sequence of numbers indicates stiffness. Each number corresponds to a part of the ski, from tail to tip. 5 equals the average
for this part and length of the ski. Lower values indicate softer skis, higher values stiffer.
