Like the traditional Japanese swords, the Volkl Katana Skis give you power and control with their full rocker, vertical sidewalls, and torsion box. The Katana's 112mm waist gives you float, while the beefy construction allows great handling on harder snow. You’ll be just like a ninja on the groomers and an acrobat in the powder with the Katana in your big-mountain arsenal.
Full Rocker is a smooth, gradual bend from tip to tail with matching sidecut and flex. The Extended Low Profile of Full Rocker gives the skier all the benefits of added maneuverability in soft snow while also delivering smooth, graceful arcs on groomed terrain. It gives you full, uninterrupted edge contact for uncanny smoothness and predictability.
Sensorwood is CNC milled using vertically laminated Poplar and Beech wood.
Power Construction Powered by Titanium is Volkl’s longest-running construction that utilizes traditional vertical sidewalls and a torsion box internal layup. This construction provides tremendous grip, stability, and a smooth ride.
Bindings not included. We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15mm wider.

Comments about Volkl Katana Skis 2013:
I purchased 2013 Volkl Katanas 191cm with Marker Griffons centered on zero this season. I am 5'10" & 190lbs intermediate level.
I've had the opportunity to ride them on groomers and powder.
Absolutely destroys groomers, hard-pack and POW; extremely stable; inspiring ride at higher speeds but can mosey down the hill too, good in the trees; easy to turn -the bigger the better but can do quick turns; very fun; they want to go fast and when unleashed be prepared for a thrill ride.
