Volkl Katana Skis 2013

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.
Shape
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.
Construction
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.
Binding Compatibility
Bindings not included. We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15mm wider.

Specs

  • Terrain: Powder
    Powder
    These skis are for the deep days. If you like to find powder stashes at your local resort, go on backcountry missions for the freshest of fresh or heli ski trips to BC, powder skis are what you need to stay afloat. Skis in the powder category are wide and most often have some form of rocker or early rise plus a relatively soft flex. Many powder skis today are versatile enough to handle mixed conditions and harder snow.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker
    Rocker
    Rocker (also called reverse-camber) is just as it sounds – camber turned upside down. Rocker skis have a side profile with a smooth downward curvature and a contact point at the middle of the ski. Rocker skis excel in deep powder. This profile provides the skis with less tip and tail hang up to prevent from catching edges and allows the skis to initiate turns extremely quickly. This profile doesn’t perform as well in icy conditions or on harder snow but if you spend lots of time in deep, untracked snow and like a more playful ski, Rocker is a great choice.
  • Turning Radius: Long
    Long
    > 22 m radius is best for powder and big-mountain.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Partial Twin Tip
    Partial Twin Tip
    Partial twin tip skis have a tail that is turned up, but not as much as the tip. This gives you the ability to ski backwards and back out of tight spaces, but these skis are mainly designed to ski forward.
