Product Info

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.

Product Details

Shape

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.

Construction

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.

Flex

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.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

    Comments about Volkl Gem Skis - Women's 2012:

    These are really fun skis. I am an advanced downhill skier, but just recently started venturing into the park. These are perfect for the whole mountain. So far, I've taken them out 3 times (to Steamboat) and they're fun in the powder and in the park. I recommend them if you want to try out park skiing.

      Comments about Volkl Gem Skis - Women's 2012:

      This is my first pair of downhill skis and I absolutely love them - my skiing and enjoyment improved greatly on these. They're light, lively, and very responsive. Initiating turns is easy. Haven't had too much chatter.

      I consider myself an Advanced Beginner - Intermediate and ski somewhat cautiously on blues and easy blacks. Used these in substantial powder once and they didn't work so well but I think it might have been operator error - I'm used to lumpy bumpy ice and crud.

      Paired these with Look NX Exclusive Lifter bindings, which also happen to be color-coordinated. Graphics are fun - I get a lot of comments on them. Definitely recommend getting these if you're looking for a responsive ski.
