ALLEY: For the young skier who wants a rock-solid twip tip that can conquer the park as well as ski the whole mountain, the Alley has a directional shape of 111-81-104. This value-packed ride features our Powershell construction combined with Tough Box construction. A great first twip tip to own.
A traditional camber line. Skiers can still enjoy the feel of traditional camber. While not as silky-smooth as a rockered ski, full camber provides stability and acceleration for skiers wanting a more classic ride quality.
MULTI-LAYER WOOD CORE
Völkl freeskiing models feature a multi-layer wood core that features two different densities of wood. In the binding attachment area, a dense, ash core is used, while in the rest of the ski, the core is poplar. The more dense wood creates more secure screw retention, preventing binding pull-out, and the soft, supple poplar section allows for resilience and snap. The flex pattern is tailored to each ski model, depending on the desired performance. This popular wood core is featured in more models for 14/15.
POWER SHELL CONSTRUCTION
Völkl’s Power Shell Construction utilizes a full cap shell, without a vertical sidewall. This design allows for an easy, round flex pattern, with an extremely friendly ride quality.
TOUGH BOX CONSTRUCTION
Tough Box construction consists of the use of a Multi-Layer wood core (see below) and a composite/fiberglass sheath to create the ultimate resilience and snap for our freeskiing models. The sheath is wrapped around the wood core in the mid-body of the ski, increasing strength and screw retention. Many Völkl freeskiing models also feature a carbon layer in the bottom of the ski that provides additional stability and durability.
