Product Info

Volkl Gem Skis - Women's 2011: Part of Volkl’s freestyle series, the Volkl Gem Skis are for women who dig the park. Partial twin tips and traditional camber construction means this ski not only rides as smooth backwards as forwards, but also provides that little bit of extra pop in the park. 81mm underfoot provides plenty of width for lighter snow, and is the perfect tool for those heavy powder days. Take this thing anywhere on the mountain, and it is sure to please.

Product Details

Construction

Tough Box Construction features a multi-layered wood core wrapped with a composite/fiberglass sheath to create the ultimate resilience and snap for Volkl’s freeskiing models. Surrounding the core in the mid-body of the ski, it adds snap, strength and binding screw retention

Flex

Multi-layer wood core with 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 secure screw retention and stability, while the softer poplar section allows for resilience and snap.

Binding Compatibility

Requires brake width of 80mm to 95mm

    Comments about Volkl Gem Skis - Women's 2011:

    I used these on the East coast and they held up very well under some icy conditions. Even as the slopes got progressively choppier throughout the day, these were able to cut through the crud without any problems. They also lacked the rattle you sometimes feel with lower quality skis when you're going at higher speeds. I highly recommend these for the intermediate-advanced skier, even if the park isn't your thing.

        I am so impressed with these skis. They are lightweight while remaining sturdy and durable. They're also easy to maneuver which has made skiing on mogul runs and tress much more enjoyable than my previous skis. I can't believe that I got these for so cheap. Will be buying more Vokls in the future.

              I love them!! The design was a little girly for me but the price was well worth it. And turns out they are great skis. Haven't had a chance to take them in powder this year but as far as park, groomers, and even ungroomed chop, they handle like a dream.

              I teach on these skis. I am also learning how to hit jibs and jumps with them. I am still trying to get used to the weight for jibbing, but I've had so much fun on these. It also takes sometime to get used to the center mount, but I wouldn't go back.

                Bought these for my daughter who is 11. She is really enjoying them. While using them, I note she seems to more easily navigate varied terrain. A great ski for the price.
