Product Info

Women looking for a powder ski with groomer carving capabilities should put the Volkl Aura Skis at the top of their list. The tip rocker makes the ski smooth and forgiving no matter the conditions while the Titanium enhanced Power Box construction and camber underfoot give the Aura edgehold and a super damp ride on groomers. Big mountain comp? Mogul challenge? Nastar? Why not, with a ski this versatile nothing can stand in your way.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Tip RockerAn early rise tip designed for high performance all-mountain freeskiing. The combination of an early rise tip 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.

Core

Sensorwood LightCreated in a complex CNC milling process, a highly sophisticated milling program enables Volkl to produce wood cores with extreme precision. The Sensorwood core is made using vertically laminated poplar and beech wood.

Laminates

Power/Tough Box Powered by TitaniumVölkl's longest running construction, Power Construction 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 Sensorwood core.

Binding Compatibility

Flat mounting area

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

    Comments about Volkl Aura Skis - Women's 2014:

    I am a cautious intermediate skier (blues only). After changing out skis multiple times to handle powder and chunks, I ended up with a pair of these. They were a smooth ride. They are rated for advanced, but trust me, I am not an advanced skier. Volkl skis seem to ski themselves and take you along for the ride. I didn't seem to fight with them like I have done with so many others. I found them easy to turn, even at slower speeds. Loved them.

      Comments about Volkl Aura Skis - Women's 2014:

      Riding this ski on the steeps of Whiteface Mountain, in the Adirondack Mountains. I switch back and forth between telemark and alpine depending on the conditions and the terrain. This is a great choice for women who want to rip and grip the ice and hardpack found in the Northeast. This ski made me feel like a pro - I can finally keep up with the speed crew! It's a stiff ski, but it doesn't drag you down. Floated through powder (what little we have) and fun in the bumps. Can't wait 'til we get some good tree skiing so I can test them out in the glades. I think they should've named them the Volkl Magic!

      Comments about Volkl Aura Skis - Women's 2014:

      After demo'ing approximately 20 skis between end of last season and beginning of this, I finally took the chance on ordering these sight unseen. I had tried the 2015 Aura, but it features a double rocker new for this year, and I felt I couldn't get a good carve and grip on the mountain.
      I was nervous to order these without skiing on them, but I heard glowing reviews from a friend who had an older Aura (~3-4 years), and was buying the 2014 version. I also asked strangers in the lift lines, and they were very happy with their experiences and wholeheartedly recommended).
      I am so glad I took the risk, as I absolutely love them. I've used them for five days on groomers (nice and fast, and can really get up on an edge); some ice (I ski in Maine... I still felt in control); some fresh natural and manmade powder (you float); and some soft bumps (enough give in the ski to float between the bumps).
      Overall, I am SO happy with this purchase! My sister and friend bought the same ones within 24 hours of me, and love theirs too!

        Comments about Volkl Aura Skis - Women's 2014:

        This is my first pair of wider skis and I am very impressed. I have taken them all over the mountain and they behave well in most conditions. They hold an edge well on ice, turn responsively on the steeps, are stable over crud and of course fantastic in fresh snow. I can't wait to get them into some real powder!

        Comments about Volkl Aura Skis - Women's 2014:

        This ski can tear through anything. It's stable at high speeds, doesn't catch an edge when you transition between snow surfaces, and is wide enough underfoot to float through the powder. It's a bit more work to get this ski really carving, but its well worth it.
