Technical info:
This VTA Lite version is a little heavier than last year´s super light model. Weighing just above one kilo, it is still among the lightest constructions in the test. Low camber, long and low rocker in the front and even flex characterises Völkl´s second generation VTA Lite touring ski.

On snow:
This is better than last year´s model, even though it´s a little narrower. The added grams and a stiffer flex is an advantage going downhill. Völkl VTA is still very light and stable at speed. It´s not as good as Dynastar, but Völkl manages to combine low weight with good maneuverability. This is the ski for those who are looking for a real light-weighter with power.
