Volkl Gem Skis - Women's 2012: From hitting boxes and rails to charging the entire mountain over, the Volkl Gem Skis offer all the tech and design you needs. A brand new addition to the women's freeskiing series, the Gem Skis are an all mountain twin tip ski with a sidecut of 111-81-104. It also features a Sensorwood Light core and Toughbox for durability and enhanced performance regardless of where you take it on the mountain.
Full Camber is for skiers who still enjoy the feel of traditional camber. While not as silky-smooth as a rockered ski, full camber provides stability and acceleration for skiers wanting a more classic ride quality.
Tough Box construction features a Multi-Layer wood core wrapped with a Composite/Fiberglass sheath to create the ultimate resilience and snap for freeskiing models. Surrounding the core in the mid-body of the ski, it adds snap, strength and binding screw retention.
Multi-Layer Wood Light Core has 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. The flex pattern can be tailored to each ski model to match the desired performance characteristics.
Sensorwood Light Core is CNC milled using vertically laminated wood.
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.
