Product Info

The Volkl Katana Skis feature a top-end construction with full Sensorwood and two sheets of titanium. Meticulously matched with Volkl s Extended Low Profile (ELP) rocker, the Katana's 111mm waist gives you float, while the beefy construction allows great handling on harder snow. For good skiers who want a big mountain powder ski that can handle the groomed on occasion, the Volkl Katana Skis are the weapon of choice.

Product Details


Extended Low Profile (ELP) Full Rocker gives the skier all the benefits of added maneuverability in soft snow while also delivering smooth, graceful arcs on groomed terrain. By matching the flex and sidecut with the full rocker (long, gradual bend from tip to tail) profile, the skier gains full, uninterrupted edge contact. The more you put the ski on edge, the more effective the edge becomes. The resulting smoothness and predictability is truly uncanny.


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.


Sensorwood Core is CNC milled using vertically laminated Poplar and Beech wood.

Powered by Titanium

Comments about Volkl Katana Skis 2012:

Not much new here on the 2012 Katana which is perfect as far as I am concerned. This ski is perfect for anyone looking for stiff ski that charges. 111 underfoot helps this ski get you on top of the snow and power through any snow type. With an edge hold that only Volkl can provide, this ski kills it on hard pack and pow. If you need a bomber proof go anywhere ski, this is it. Period.

Comments about Volkl Katana Skis 2012:

This ski likes to go fast and smash through everything in its path. It never leaves you asking for more ski, expecially in powder, heavy snow, or crud. It excells with big super G turns, but is slugginsh to make a quick turn or to go edge to edge.
