It gives you full, uninterrupted edge contact for uncanny smoothness and predictability.

If you want a true all mountain ski this is the one for you. I am an intermediate to advanced skier, and my ideal day would cruising the mountain, a few hours in the park and off to do some backcountry free ride. However I can only really afford to have one pair of skies, the bridge is incredibly versatile and allows me to do all of those things. For someone who just wants park the lack of camber might be an issue, but for an all mountain ski the bridge is ideal.

Volkl has done a pretty good job with taking a successful design and applying it to multiple skis for the same skier just different conditions. You got your Shrio for the deep days, your Gotama for the dry spells and then the Bridge for the park ski you can take everywhere else too. It makes changing skis predictable because you know how each is going to handle. Personally I like a ski with a traditional camber under foot at least for park laps. I want something that I can flex and lean on to get pop. It's hard on the Bridge because it's design is to have the camber taken out and instead placed in a pre-flexed position. While on edge it's unshakable but it lacks camber and playfulness which was a turn off for me.

    Great lightweight all-mountain ski. Floats on the powder and great in the trees and ungroomed trails. Nice carving ablility on the groomers too. Overall a great playfull ski that is fun on any trail. Only drawback is some chatter at high speed, which is expected with a full rocker ski.

      Comments about Volkl Bridge Skis 2013:

      I bought the Volkl Gotama several years ago for skiing out West. I liked the Gotama so much that it ended up being my east coast ski most of the time. I wanted a ski with the same profile/characteristics as the Gotama but lighter and a little quicker turning from edge to edge. The Bridge is that ski!!! It has the same wood core construct and ELP rocker as the goat but narrower under foot. These skis are so much fun!

        Fun ski, can put it on edge realy easy and it will grip hard snow very well. Also floats nice in fresh snow. Very lively ski with pop out of the turns. Full rocker ski makes for easy turns in the bumps. Powers through crud.

          While I haven't been able to ski these too often yet, I have gotten out twice in the last 2 weeks to get used to them. Before these, I typically used carving skis... but, I wanted something more playful to improve on spins and skiing switch. At the same time, I wanted to maintain good carving ability. I love these. The rocker still allows me to carve, but gives me much more in terms of versatility. No real complaints here.

            Comments about Volkl Bridge Skis 2013:

            I have always been an agressive and fast skier. The bridge is the perfect ski for me because i can take it down a groomer with no problem and then hit the park or the back bowls for an equally great experience. The ski is responsive and smooth, the lack or camber is a non-factor in my mind. Overall, this is the best ski i have ever skied.

            Comments about Volkl Bridge Skis 2013:

            The Bridges perform just as described. Lightweight and playful, quick to initiate turns and just overall lots of fun all over the mountain. Medium stiffness. They ski switch well. I have them paired with a set of Schizos so I can dial them forward for park laps. I am from the east coast and this is the fattest ski I have owned and the first with rocker. The width is only noticeable when you want it to be and the rocker seems to make quick turns that much quicker.

            There are some slight imperfections in the top sheet which are probably only noticeable to me. If I had paid full freight I would ding a star for that but since I got them for a great price I can't complain. I have the 2012 version which is identical to the 2013 except for graphics. My skis get pretty beat up so pretty soon it will all blend together anyway.

            Awesome skis, They rip the groomers like the RTM 84, the full rocker makes it float great in soft snow and powder. They are also nice and light good for the park and side hits on trails. A lot of pop too. On the ice it carves nice. and the switch riding is phenomenal. great all mountain ski.

                I had the chance to ski this today from the shop with super high expectations. The bridge looked great on paper and was the ideal weapon (in my mind) for the day. the conditions were groomers that had been sun baked and the temp was rising so things slushed up a bit. The first few turns I was getting the ski dialed to see what kind of turn it liked and were it felt most comfortable speed wise. After a few turns I felt that i was missing something and that something was liveliness. They felt completely dead on my feet, there was no reward for a nice arking turn, no crisp finish, no pop to the next edge ( this is partially due to zero camber underfoot) but they still felt dead. To keep this review somewhat short I'll just cut to the chase and say I'm a bit of a stranger to the park but it was my last ditch effort to draw some fun out of these skis and thats where they delivered. I'm not the most graceful in the air but those things will get you up there and make it a blast to rocket off the lip of any jump. I believe this ski is more suited for a park skier as opposed to an all mountain quiver ski as i previously thought. I sure there is a market for this ski and there are a tone of skier that will love it but it just didn't fit my skiing.

                  I'm a new skier, and this is my first set of non-rental skis. I've put them through their paces this season though, from super icy conditions at Bachelor to dumping wet snow, and they have held up beautifully. I never felt like I was out of control or wished that I some other sort of planks strapped to my feet.

                    I usually ride the entire mountain when I ski. And love to be able to ski whatever, whenever. I feel like the Volkl Bridge is the ski to allow you to do that. I have a pair of Volkl Mantras that I absolutely love, so I was skeptical about getting anything with a duel rocker. Was scared I would loose a lot of speed as well. After spending a season on the bridges, I didn't notice much difference in top speed, more of a difference in acceleration. Love the way the skis handle in the terrain park as well. Light weight, and very responsive ski. Great purchase.

                    I am an all-mountain skier, not too hardcore, but I like going fast, occasionally hitting between the trees and going to the park. Off-piste, the skis handle excellently thanks to the wider tips. The full-rocker I didn't think I'd like, but it really carved nicely in powder, and out of it! In the park, riding switch was no problem with the twin tips, and hitting the jumps felt great. Just make sure you know exactly where you want to mount your bindings before getting them done!

                          These are a true beauty. The skis perform excellent and catch the eyes of all. I would definitely recommend these skis for an all mountain type of ski. Love the twin tips too!
