Volkl Gotama Skis 2011: The Dalai Lama himself couldn’t ask for a better big mountain ski. For those shredders who want a playful twin tip for big mountain riding, yet need something balanced enough to kick it in the groomers also. Check out the roaring switch capabilities of the Volkl Gotama Skis, or just cruise some pow in these floaty snow sticks. It’s all possible and it’s all delightful with the Volkl Gotama Ski.
Utilizes Volkl’s Extended Low Profile (ELP) rocker design which features 4 key attributes working together to enhance performance. Volkl engineers continue to refine their rocker designs to adapt to various end uses, but the basic principle remains: an elongated, gradual bend, when put on edge, provides full, uniform edge/snow contact for better control on groomed snow, combined with unparalleled maneuverability in soft snow. These four key attributes are: 1) Round shape throughout: allowing easy smearing and speed control without sacrificing firm snow performance. 2) Flex: Flex zones are stiffer in the front, providing stability, and medium flex on the mid-body, for ease of turning on groomers. 3) ELP, each sidecut is specially formulated to the ski, aiding in performance on the snow, whether its powder or groomers. 4) Lower Tip Shape: provides a smooth ride on the groomed, and rides high in soft snow since there is a consistent bend throughout the ski.
Power construction powered by carbon features traditional vertical sidewalls. Featured throughout the Volkl freeskiing collection, this versatile, proven construction provides tremendous grip, stability, and sensitivity. Tough box construction features a multi-layer wood core wrapped with a composite/fiberglass sheath to create the ultimate resilience and snap for the 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.
