Product Info

Volkl Chiara Skis + Essenza 4Motion 11.0 TC Bindings - Women's 2013: For intermediate to advanced skiers looking for a combination of an exciting frontside ride with effortless handling, the new Volkl Chiara Skis with Essenza 4Motion 11.0 TC Bindings are a dream come true. Their new construction features an updated profile that gives the skier both lighter weight and a flatter stance than past models. This is the most exciting women’s game improvement ski in years.

Product Details

Shape

Tip Rocker features an early-rise tip design and a classic camber profile in the rest of the ski provides easy, smooth turn entry regardless of conditions. In softer snow the ski is incredibly forgiving, floats better, and requires less energy to ride.

Bio-Logic Sidecut shapes are wider in the tip, and narrower in the tail than unisex skis, featuring a specific, progressive design that has a tighter radius in the front of the ski and a longer radius toward the tail. The narrower tail allows the skier to finish the turn with less effort, reducing the load on the knees.

Construction

Extended Wood Core Xtra Light is used in XTD Progressive constructions to be more forgiving with a solid central section that extends toward the tip and tail.

Dual XTD Transmission powered by Steel is forgiving and soft in feel. It delivers the necessary power for an exciting ride that is accessible to more than just expert skiers.

Bio-Logic Flex works in synergy with the new stance and geometry. Stiffer in the front of the ski for quick turn initiation, and softer in the tail for easy turn exit, the Bio-Logic flex enhances flex distribution and gives the skier the ultimate in comfort and control.

Bindings

The Marker Essenza 4Motion 11.0 TC Bindings feature the Triple Pivot Compact Toe and TwinCam Heel.

Bindings do not come mounted to the skis. Always have a certified technician mount and adjust the bindings.

Comments about Volkl Chiara Skis + Essenza 4Motion 11.0 TC Bindings - Women's 2013:

We goto local mountains in PA NJ and the Catskills and do about 8 weekend trips to VT mont tremblant sugarloaf and whiteface a year .

These are great to power through crud and east coast conditions . I'm 5'7" and 117lbs and my boyfriend got me the 161s and they are not bulky at all because they are so light ! Also I got these over volkls kenjas because I was afraid having a true 50 - 50 all mountain ski wouldn't pay off on the east coast. I am so glad I got these . I was afraid they would sink in powder but for the limited powder days 6" in one day at tremblant they were fine I felt in control and they didn't sink at all (117lbs on a 160 so I think they generate plenty of lift for me ). I am also more confident at faster speeds because they hold an edge better when things get icy .

I am not advanced enough to do tri skiing or moguls (this is only my first season so no comment yet)

Love the purple jewel in the tips that shines with the sunlight

      Comments about Volkl Chiara Skis + Essenza 4Motion 11.0 TC Bindings - Women's 2013:

      After not skiing for some thirty years I decided to give it a try. These skis came highly recommended so I gave them a shot and I was not disappointed. While I was a little unsure at first, these skis, along with a little muscle memory, made my first day back on two planks a breeze. Therefore, I highly recommend these skis and I can't wait to get back to the mountain again!

      It's good a product. Love it. Cannot wait this snow season. I cannot give more feedbacks on this skis performance, because I haven't used it yet. But I will update my review after I try them out!

        Comments about Volkl Chiara Skis + Essenza 4Motion 11.0 TC Bindings - Women's 2013:

        I am SO enjoying my skis and bindings! The performance is outstanding; at first I had to get used to the incredible turnability of the skis, but it was not difficult to adjust to that. I have used them on moguls, steep downhills and in icy and regular conditions and have found my skiing improves. I cannot rest on my laurels with these, however; they keep me alert and on my toes and I see my performance improve!
