Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Blaze 86
Category:

  Season
21-22

RRP: £ ?550.00
inc binding? No
Volkl Say...

The Blaze series, which was successfully launched last year, is being expanded to include a new model with four lengths and 86 mm under the boot. In addition to the proven 3D radius sidecut, the Blaze 86 is built with a full tip-to-tail wood core. This not only trims the weight and makes the ski more lively, but also eliminates the need for plastic panels ? a small but positive environmental aspect. The 86 model also comes with elasticated, rubbery suspension elements on the edges of the tip and the tail, which act like a bumper in wind-blown or unfavourable snow conditions and not only offer more resistance to disruption but also deliver great flotation. The Blaze series is generally designed for fast, short turns. However, the three different radii, especially in combination with the full hybrid multilayer wood core, are designed for every riding style and can handle even the most ambitious use. From the all-mountain skier who wants to go off-piste, to the classic freerider or touring skier who will put up with an extra 100 g of weight for significantly improved skiing performance, the Blaze 86 is a top recommendation! Thanks to its light weight, the Blaze is also used as a freeride touring ski. To this end, V?lkl also offers Smart Glue skins that have been perfectly tailored to each Blaze model.

Blaze 94 W
Category:

  Season
21-22

RRP: £ ?590.00
inc binding? No
Volkl Say...

The Blaze 94 W is what we like to call ?sporty?. It delivers on many levels, but it is made for the high octane delight of a skier that loves to turn on a dime, in every type of terrain. The 0.3mm thick layer of titanal across the binding platform creates an impressively direct power transfer from skier movement to ski action. Keeping the titanal only under the foot creates an incredibly fun and responsive turning experience, immediately from initiation, with little effort. Although it is designed with short turn radius goals, the 3D Radius Sidecut and Hybrid Multilayer Woodcore significantly enhances the ski's liveliness and maneuverability for any turn shape. At only 1427g (@ 165cm length) and with the addition of the Suspension Tip and Tail (basically a rubbery ?bumper? for whatever the ski comes in contact with), it is a fantastic touring ski as well. Regardless of resort skiing glory, off piste endeavors, or backcountry objectives, the Blaze 94 offers an incredibly wide range of use in all conditions.

RRP: £ ?1,125.00
inc binding? Yes
Volkl Say...

Just when you think it can?t get any better, the V?lkl R&D team will prove you wrong ? as with the Deacon V.WERKS edition. The premium model with 84 mm under the boot and a weight of just 1,830 grams (177 cm length w/o binding) features V?lkl?s innovative tailored carbon tips and tails. Never before has it been possible to distribute power to the tip and tail in such a precise way while also offering full dynamics and impressive liveliness. The carbon fibres are no longer integrated as a uniform fleece but added through a stitching process in such way that their orientation and strength are perfectly tailored to the functional requirements of each ski section. As the most important areas of a slope ski are the tip and tail, these are the areas with the highest concentration of carbon fibres, offering a fantastic liveliness and dynamic on all pistes with minimal skier effort. The ski is built with our innovative 3D Radius sidecut technology. This makes it possible to optimally tailor the tip and tail rocker design to the three interconnecting radii for excellent smoothness and stability at the highest speeds and in demanding piste conditions. To increase the power transmission and shock absorption qualities even further, the Deacon V.WERKS comes with a 0.7mm thick Titanal frame that surrounds the most stressed tip and tail areas. This highly complex technical structure enables a brand-new combination of liveliness and speed stability. The IPT Lowride binding system is lighter than its predecessor and has been carefully integrated into the ski body for impressive power transmission. If you?re looking for a highly versatile, incredibly powerful, super light and extremely sporty all-mountain ski for smooth rides in all conditions, the Deacon V.WERKS is a must for your shortlist.

As a beginner skier improves, the mountain opens up, and the Flair 76 is there for that development.

As ambitions and confidence grows the 76mm waist is an optimal width for entering more intermediate and advanced runs. And the vMotion1 Binding supports a remarkable power transmission throughout the entire ski, with the option to ride a GripWalk sole on your boot in the process. The Flair 76 will only help deepen a relatively new skier?s love for the mountains, and encourage them to continue exploring.

If you?ve recently discovered the unrivaled exhilaration of skiing, than the Flair 79 may be your ticket to freedom. The construction is a combination of ease and stability. The 3D.Ridge technology and Center Sidewall significantly reduce weight across the length of the ski, while keeping the power underfoot, where a thin layer of steel adds strength. Each turn is easily initiated, without sacrificing grip, thanks to the extended tip and tail rocker. Power transfer is prioritized by the iPT Wideride binding system; plus the GripWalk compatibility brings a new level of ski boot comfort. With all the thoughts put into it and a slightly wider waist, the Flair 79 opens up more terrain, in more conditions, than any other ski in the Flair lineup.

Kenja 88

RRP: £ ?600.00

Volkl Say...

When it comes to the buffet of skiing, if you are a glutton that cannot decide between groomers or powder, bumps or trees, the Kenja 88 is the plate (ski) that can handle your hearty appetite. The impressive carving performance comes from the three different radii in the sidecut, aka: the 3D Radius Sidecut design. Depending on speed and edge angle, the snow connects with a different part of the ski, supporting that specific turn, managing the terrain and forces smoothly. The tip and tail rocker make any turn shape initiation more fluid, plus provide clearance when the slope becomes deep with powder (yay!) or full of crud (yay?). The Kenja 88 is also built with a Titanal Frame and Carbon tips which gives stability without losing playfulness. The result of all of this is a ski that holds beautifully at high speeds while still remaining extremely lively. If you?ve got Kenja 88?s on your feet, it?s time to unbuckle your belt and dig in to all the mountains can offer.

Mantra 102
Category:

  Season
21-22

RRP: £ ?690.00
inc binding? No
Volkl Say...

The Mantra 102 with a tip and tail rocker is a true power freerider. The Titanal frame combined with carbon tips not only provides stability and damping effects but also great liveliness. But the real highlight is the 3D radius sidecut. In combination with the Titanal frame and carbon tips, this allows precise power transmission and a smooth ride coupled with uncompromising liveliness and turning behaviour such as never before experienced with Titanal skis!

Mantra M6

RRP: £ ?660.00

Volkl Say...

How do you improve a legend? You retain the features that made the ski famous and add the latest innovations, which allow progress where a year ago you couldn?t see any room for improvement. The new Mantra M6 again comes with a multilayer wood core and tip and tail rocker. But in the coming season, the newly designed ski body will, for the first time, be adapted to a 3D radius sidecut concept with a tailored Titanal frame. By adapting the Titanal components to the various ski lengths and thus to the skier?s proportions, not only can the tip and tail ends be weight-optimised, but the torsional stiffness can also be influenced, thereby improving the ride qualities. This retains the familiar stability of a Titanal ski while also making the Mantra M6 noticeably lighter and more agile to control. The new handling characteristics of the Mantra M6 are also enhanced by the tailored carbon tip. The dedicated positioning of the carbon fibres results in a precise tip response and vastly improves the ski?s torsional stiffness. In summary, the Mantra M6 is even more versatile than its predecessor and once again offers maximum fun!

Rise Above 88
Category:

  Season
21-22

RRP: £ ?580.00
inc binding? No
Volkl Say...

The Rise Above 88 with a 3D radius sidecut is the most versatile ski in the new touring ski range with impressive performance on both ascents and descents. The hybrid Tourlite wood core provides an impressive combination of minimal weight (1186 g @ 170 cm) and ride smoothness and stability. The 3D radius sidecut has a highly resistant tip, which is especially useful when skiing in wind-blown snow conditions. The sidecut geometry provides both agility and manoeuvrability in narrow passages while the full sidewall offers great stability and resilience. For ski tours with a heavy backpack, the combination of a narrower waist under the boot and moderate shaping in the tip and tail areas helps skiers remain in control and requires less effort when changing direction. The Rise Above 88 also comes with V?lkl?s Smart Skinclip system, which is compatible with both Fibre Tech and Smart Glue skins.

The Secret 96 is a serious recipe for snow-shredding fun. If you take a dash of the powder-loving girth of the Secret 102 and a pinch of the on-piste prowess of the Kenja 88, you?ve got the deliciously versatile combo that is the Secret 96. The new Tailored Titanal Frame and Carbon Tips give the skis much the same smoothness, with a bit more ease. The 3D Radius Sidecut allows for confident turns in any terrain, and the 96mm waist covers the bases for most every snow depth without sacrificing performance in either direction. If your appetite says ?yes, please? to virtually all conditions, and you sometimes prefer cruising over charging, the Secret 96 is your ski du jour.

Above all else, skiing should be fun. And for those that value effortless turns and seamless connection to the snow over powerful rigidity (aka: a ski you have to work a little harder to bend), the Yumi 80 is a fantastic option. The Multilayer Woodcore and Full Sidewall still provide a dynamic ski experience, but the Glass Frame is more forgiving and easier to control than a ski with a Titanal Frame. The 3D Radius Sidecut gives the ski surprising turn shape versatility, agile for short turns while still supporting big sweeping arcs. The Yumi 80 brings the fun when it comes to performance, on and even off piste - when the snow is soft and irresistible.

RRP: £ ?570.00

Volkl Say...

The Yumi with 84mm waist is an especially playful and easy to handle freeride model due to its 3D sidecut radius. This year's model features a unique combination of a Glass Frame surrounding a Titanal Binding Platform. This adds stability and power transmission under the foot without extra weight. The ski feels smoother and at the same time livelier and can be ridden harder with less effort. It features tip and tail rocker, full sidewall construction, and moderate taper in the tip. The strength of the Yumi has always been the huge range of skiers? abilities who can enjoy it, and the lively, yet stable feel on the front side blended with the float and maneuverability for an occasional off piste venture makes it yet another winner.

The introduction of the Mantra marked the beginning of V?lkl's powerful freeriding ski lines. For those who want to ride free without any restrictions but with the full control of a sportive off-piste ski. The new Blaze series even adds another dimension to the idea. The concept of the ski targets the intuitive freerider who appreciates a playful and at the same time agile and sportive maneouverability. At 106 mm under the binding Blaze 106 weighs only 1772 g (@ 186 length), providing all the lift to make every powder day a dream come true. A just 0.3 mm thick Titanal binding plattform provides direct power transfer and a fast pressure built-up from one edge to another. This gives the ski a most direct response right from the turn initiation. In order to preserve the full flexibility and agility there is intentionally no Titanal included in the tip and the tail. Especially in narrow and rough terrain you will directly benefit from the ski's faster and more direct reaction and with less effort required. The 3D radius sidecut significantly enhances the ski's liveliniess and maneouverability. The Blaze construction targets the short turn-oriented skier but the 3D radius together with the tip to tail Hybrid Multilayer Woodcore adapts to basically every riding style. A great new feature is the Suspension Tip which makes its debut in the Blaze series. This elastic rubbery material on the edges of the tip and the tail acts like a bumper everytime the ski gets in contact with the snow in wind-blown or tracked conditions. The shock-absorbing elasticity ensures not only the resistance but also provides great lift off-piste. V?lkl also offers Smart Glue adhesive skins tailor-made for each Blaze model.

The Blaze 106 W is a light, agile powder ski that is constructed with maneuverability in mind. The thin Titanal Binding Platform underfoot harnesses power with little effort, creating an incredibly enjoyable and dynamic turning experience, immediately from initiation. In narrow terrain and/or rough conditions their reaction time is impressive, especially for a powder-width ski. Their full length Hybrid Multilayer Woodcore and overall design target short-turn-oriented skiers, but the sidecut?s three radius technology adapts to most every riding style. In addition to ripping around the resort, the Blaze 106 W?s also transition into capable freeride touring skis because of their lightweight, yet powerful nature. With the addition of the Suspension Tip, a rubbery, shock-absorbing material on the tip and tail edges, the Blaze 106 W rides high through pow, crud and wind buffed snow with playful power.

The Blaze has been primarily designed for short, fast turns but the three different radii together with the tip to tail hybrid multilayer wood core adapt to any riding style how ever ambitious. A further notable feature is the suspension tip. The elasticated, rubbery material on the tip and tail acts like a bumper in wind-blown or tracked conditions. It also improves resistance to disruption and provides fantastic flotation. Thanks to its light weight, the Blaze skis are also used as freeride touring skis.

Just when you thought it can't get any better - here comes the Deacon V.Werks edition. The Deacon premium model with 84 mm under the foot and a total weight of 1830 grams (at 177 length w/o binding) including the binding features V?lkl's brand new Carbon Fibre Functional Placement. Never before has it been possible to distribute power to the tip and the tail in such a precise way. The carbon fibres are no longer integrated as a uniform fleece but added through a stiching process in such way that the fibre orientation and strength perfectly match the functional requirements of each ski section. As the most important areas of a slope ski are the tip and the tail, these are the areas with the highest concentration of carbon fibres offering a fantastic liveliness and dynamic with only minimal skier's effort. Like the other Deacon models the ski is built with our innovative 3D Radius sidecut technology, precisely adjusted to the ski's tip & tail rocker design. The open radius provides stability and smoothness at the highest speeds and in demanding conditions. To increase the power transmission and shock absorbtion qualities even more the Deacon V.Werks comes with a 0.7mm thick Titanal frame surrounding the most stressed tip and tail areas. The integrated IPT Lowride binding system sets new standards regarding power transmission by shifting critical functions further into the ski body. On top it is 400g lighter than the previous version. If you are looking for an extremely versatile, incredibly powerful, super light and yet playful all mountain ski, for all conditions the Deacon V.Werks is a dream come true.

Additionally another 0.3 mm Titanal sheet in the binding area provides the necessary rigidity and hold for the binding even under the toughest conditions. 108 mm allow for maximum lift especially off-piste.

On top the Kendo 88 is built with a Titanal Frame and Carbon Tips, providing more stability and dampening. At the same time the middle section of the ski becomes stronger and allows a softer setup. As a result the ski becomes extremely lively and as well as stable even at the highest speeds. A Multilayer Woodcore, framed by full sidewalls and a P-Tex 2100 base underneath rounds up the premium construction.

The Revolt 121 is the result of a close cooperation between Lead Engineer Lucas Romain, Product & Team Manager Jean-Claude Pedrolini and the riders Markus Eder, Paddy Graham, Fabio Studer, Colter Hinchliffe, Tanner Rainville, Sam Smoothy and Tom Ritsch. The tip & tail rocker ski comes with a slight camber under the binding for that little bit of extra pressure und steering when approching the kicker. "Incredibly versatile" - that's one of the most often heard comments from people riding the Revolt 121. This is made possible due to the 3 radius construction and a specially shaped tip that works great for nose butters and drift turns in soft snow. The tough box construction with Multilayer Woodcore makes the ski strong enough to go where dedicated freeskiers dare to go.

The new Rise Above 88 is the most versatile ski in the new touring ski range with equal strengths in both ascent and descent. The Hybrid Tourlite Woodcore provides an impressive combination of minimal weight (1190gr @ 170) and riding stability. The 3D radius sidecut provides a highly resistant tip which is especially useful when skiing in wind-blown snow conditions. The sidecut construction provides both agility as well as maneuverability in narrow passages. For ski tours with heavy loads the combination of a more narrow waist under the foot and moderate shaping in the tip and tail areas helps skiers to stay in control and requires less effort when changing the direction. The Rise Above 88 also comes with V?lkl's new Smart Skinclip which is available with Fibre Tech and Smart Glue skins.

When your focus lies on the ascent but you are still looking for a ski with great riding performance you should try the Rise Up 82. For the first time V?lkl incorporates the 3D Radius sidecut derived from their freeride and all-mountain skis like the Kanjo or the Deacon, into their touring skis. This design combines three different radiuses which are fluidly connected with each other over the entire length of the ski. Thereby the curve behaviour is adjusted by the dominant waist radius depending on the edge angle. As a result this ensures smooth running at high speeds and a pronounced tip resistance in rougher snow conditions, especially off-piste. The Tourlite Hybrid-Woodcore enables us to produce the ski at a very low weight while still providing a reliable downhill performance. Of course the Rise Up 82 also features the Smart Skinclip system which is compatible to the new Tech Fibre and Smart Glue skins.

This is not a fun ski hence the score of 6. It's a very serious ski for seriously good skiers, well, better than me anyway. It doesn't like pootling about, it just sulks at low speeds. It only comes to life when allowed to head straight down the fall line at which point you start to get some sense of what it does want to do. It wants to transport you from somewhere sphincter-poppingly daunting to the safety of the bar in the most ruthlessly efficient way. It's like the SWAT team of skis.

The Revolt 121 is the result of a close cooperation between Lead Engineer Lucas Romain, Product & Team Manager Jean-Claude Pedrolini and the riders Markus Eder, Paddy Graham, Fabio Studer, Colter Hinchliffe, Tanner Rainville, Sam Smoothy and Tom Ritsch. The tip & tail rocker ski comes with a slight camber under the binding for that little bit of extra pressure und steering when approching the kicker. The 3 Radius sidecut and specially shaped tip the works amazingly for nose butters and drift turns in soft snow means that one of the comments we hear the most about this ski is "Incredibly versatile"

The slim edition of the Secret also features the revolutionary 3 radius sidecut geometry along the full sidewall. This special geometry is 100% adjusted to the tip & tail rocker construction. Depending on the rider's speed or edge angle the effective edge becomes longer or shorter and the matching sidecut radius provides hold, maneouverability or smooth operation. The Secret is the number one recommendation for the charging freeride ladies out there. You're style is hell bent for leather, here's the Secret to realize your goals.

A yummy ski, with plenty of fun for everywhere. Far more laid back and easy to handle than the Secret, yet nice and precise. My last skis were their beautiful parent, the Volkl Kiku. Apart from in looks, they are a step up, as they have camber under foot which really improves cutting in on icy stuff and no doubt crud too. These came a very close second favourite for me after the Blizzard Black Pearl 98. 98 is clearly the magic number.

The 90EIGHT is the most versatile ski in the most versatile range. With its 3D.Ridge construction and added 3D.Glass, designed to reduce the ski?s weight while increasing stability and smoothness, the 90EIGHT is an all-mountain ski that handles anything from bumps, to trees, to groomers, and even powder and crud. The moderate taper sidecut and precision-matched flex allow you to steer it anywhere you want to go to rip up the mountain with an easy, cruisy feel. And on a sidenote: This tip & tail rocker ski originally wasn?t built for on-piste usage, but it is always a pleasure to see how good it works there too.

Loved this - horrid colourway for a bloke: I can't imagine who'd want it. Also, price tag is an outrageous £900, so this had better be a bloody good ski with those disadvantages! But on this slope it was amazing. So quick and easy to move, and really secure with it, which at my advancing years is a very high consideration. Would be a fantastic front side ski and I would really like to try it out for real. I later read online reviews which didn't rate it quite as highly as I experienced it. I found that surprising and am unsure of the reason. Was this the very latest model?

The Yumi is re-designed with a wider, 84mm waist, creating an even more playful, easy handling ski. We have also updated it with Titanal Band construction, adding stability and smoothness without extra weight. It features tip and tail rocker, full sidewall construction, and moderate taper in the tip. The strength of the Yumi has always been the huge range of skiers? abilities who could enjoy it, and the lively, yet stable feel on the front side blended with the float and maneuverability for an occasional off piste ramble make it yet another winner.

This is an amazing ski, a thorough-bred with the construction and materials of a race model, just with a twist. It uses a Speedwall Multilayer Woodcore with dense woods at the edges for maximum grip and titanium for precision. The UVO vibration control adds dampening and the super-fast race base boosts speed. Tip and tail rocker improves handling when the snow isn't perfect, meaning full-on performance for more than just hard packed pistes.

It also was quick, edge to edge, on the hard pack snow in the middle of the slope. The oversize design also made it easy to work in the soft snow at the edge of the piste.

Well they are Volkl so what is there to dislike. I have skied on and owned more pairs of Volkl's than all other brands combined so that should speak loud enough about the quality of Volkl skis. The thing is these speak loud enough for themselves, great edge, hold they love to be driven hard in fact for a non race ski they really do like to be pushed and will take all that most skiers could ever throw at them. They love to be on edge and rapid edge changes are their bread and butter. They are less forgiving than some non race skis but that to me is a Volkl trade mark. Since starting back last year I ski on Volkls ( old P60 SL, Supersport Allstar Ti and Racetiger speedwall GS ) so yes I may be a bit biased towards them, they feel like old friends. Would I buy these ? Quite possibly but I love SL skis so may end up with the Racetiger SL instead for even sharper response, but if you do not want a full blown race ski these have to be given consideration.

I tested the UVO L and the UVO S. I found the UVO L just a bit too much for me - a bit stiff and unwieldy for my level. The UVO S were just right, a real Goldilocks ski, fitting perfectly between the RTM 78, a cruisy ski a step up from the RTM 75, and the RTM 81 and UVO L, which needed too much effort from me. A better or more forceful skier than me may well prefer the more demanding skis.

There‘s nearly no ski that‘s lighter and more stress free. Yet the BMT 94 is very light which allows a comfortable hike and ensures a high-performance through our v-werks construction. Furthermore it is, extremely friendly to kick turns, excellent in the traverse and, thanks to its reduced width, fits into existing climbing tracks. Its unique technology really shines on the descent, where its very good power transfer and top control handle all snow conditions with grace and style.

Is it possible to improve what is arguably the world‘s best all-mountain freerider? The answer is a YES! But you can‘t hit that goal by making changes. A redesign is required. So the MANTRA now comes with a new shape, full rocker design, directional but moderate taper construction and a little more width than its predecessors. The only element that remains is the titanium structure for maximum power transfer. The result is a MANTRA ready for an universal range of challenges, crisper and more direct than ever on the groomed terrain and even more playful

I'd assumed these would be stiff, heavy chargers (they are Volkls, after all!) and the rave reviews in mags were just PR hype. But very impressed. If I didn't have my dream skis already, I'd have bought them. The closest thing I've come across to my Whitedots. And a bit cheaper!

These are similar to the pair of Atomic Smoke Nomad TI's that I already own. A good ski, but the sheer number of people on the slope during the test meant that I had to be a bit more restrained at speeds which would suit these skis the best. A nice ride though!

I really liked these. They seemed as though they could be versatile, I liked the weight and they felt like a worthwhile step up from my Dynastar legends - but I did wonder how much 'ping' they would give for turning (sorry, my ski tech language isn't extensive'). It was hard for someone of my ability to really tell on an indoor, short slope - I would love to try these outdoors.

Really liked these, nice and light, did everything I asked when I asked, were happy on the ice as much as the soft, quick turning, even popped off a few snow piles. Should have had a higher score but only the second pair I tried so didn't have much to compare with. Wish I'd tried them again later on to make sure I still liked them so much. If I did I might have made a pair my very own.
