Technical info:
Together with RMU´s playful ski, this model from Völkl is the lightest in the test. This is a light glass- and carbon fibre cap construction with long rocker in the front, and no rocker in the back. Flat camber, long setback and an evenly distributed sidecut with a fairly long carve zone. Völkl´s VAT series originally consisted of the lightest skis on the market. This year´s wider model has a slightly higher specific weight, but it is still very light.

On snow:
Völkl´s VTA series often does well in Fri Flyt´s ski tests. A smooth shape, long sidecut radius and a relatively soft and even flex means that you are not up for any big surprises. At the same time, it is stable and easy to maneuver on all types of surfaces at different speed. A wide ski and a light construction makes it a little dull, but all in all, VTA 108 is a good choice for the ski touring enthusiast who wants a light and wide ski that can handle different terrain and all types of surfaces.
