EARLY TAPERED SIDECUTS
Early taper sidecuts in the tip and tail allow the ski to steer in and out of the turn more easily. The result is a more playful feel no matter what the conditions. In powder it makes it easy to point them wherever you want to go and not worry about the deflection. On all mountain skis, it delivers total directional freedom an effortless turn entry.
TITANAL BAND CONSTRUCTION
Used for the first time on the Confession powder ski, the new Titanal Band construction utilizes a central band in place of the full sheets of Titanal to provide stability and resilience without the added weight of the full Titanal sheet.
MULTI-LAYER WOOD CORE
Volkl 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.
Volkl’s longest-running construction, Full Sidewall, utilizes traditional vertical sidewalls and a torsion box internal layup. Used in racing skis as well as all the freeskiing models, this versatile, proven construction provides tremendous grip and stability when combined with the Sensor Wood core.
