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.
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
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.
Requires brake width of 80mm to 95mm
