Volkl AC50 Skis + iPT Wide Ride 12.0 Bindings 2011: For freshies and groomers alike: kill it on the mountain with this ripping ski that can handle super-soft to hyper-hard conditions and transition between them with ease. Everyone will envy you with the Volkl AC50 Ski + iPT Wide Ride 14.0 Binding package, featuring an Extended Sensorwood core, and Extended Double Grip Powered by Titanium – a one-two punch that gives this ski unprecedented control and precision.
Extended Double Grip Powered by Titanium, created using a unique Motion iPT interface allowing Volkl engineers to further develop their signature Double Grip construction. The added height extends from tip to tail, placing more material where it’s needed-in support of the edges. Extended Double Grip has the most consistent pressure distribution of any construction Volkl has ever created, offering more control, and better performance.
iPT Wide Ride 12.0 Bindings improves performance in three key ways: 1) The Wide Ride interface is 30% wider than the original iPT. It was developed specifically for skis 80mm and wider. 2) The toe and heel pieces for the Wide Ride system are the same design as those of the Marker Duke and Jester freeride bindings. The components contribute to better performance with a more secure wrap on the boot lug, and increased directional elasticity in the heel. 3) Lighter weight, shorter connection to the ski. Both the toe and heel components are extremely light, allowing the skier to have a very wide ski that is as easy to handle and maneuverable as a narrower system. This is also aided by the short overall length of the system.
Extended Sensorwood core created in a complex CNC milling process. The highly sophisticated milling program enables Volkl to produce wood cores with extreme precision. They are “extended” upward and lengthwise, milled to form the chambers of the Extended Double Grip construction. The core consists of a blend of poplar and beech wood, and is found in Volkl’s highest performing models.
