The Völkl Katana Skis are Völkl's most stable ride and is made for big mountain charging. Designed with a low rocker, The Katana has a large platform for big landings, while still maintaining maneuverability and nimbleness through trees and rocks. The thick dimensions ensure that the ski has enough float to handle even the deepest conditions. These Titanium enhanced planks offer serious stability for epic straight lining and general big mountain debauchery.
ELP Full Rocker Völkl Full rocker is a smooth, gradual bend from tip to tail, with matching sidecut and a symmetrical flex pattern. The Extended Low Profile (ELP) gives skiers all the benefits of extra maneuverability in soft snow while delivering smooth, sexy arcs on groomed terrain. The matching flex and sidecut on the full rocker gives you full, uninterrupted edge contact. The more the ski is on edge the more effective that edge becomes, and the resulting smoothness and predictability is uncanny.
Sensorwood Created in a complex CNC milling process, a highly sophisticated milling program enables Völkl to produce wood cores with extreme precision. The Sensorwood core is made using vertically laminated poplar and beech wood.
Power Construction Powered by Titanium, Völkl's longest running construction, Power Construction utilizes traditional vertical sidewalls and a torsion box internal layup. Used in racing skis as well as all the freeskiing models, this versatile, proven construction provides tremendous grip and stability when combined with the Sensorwood core.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Comments about Volkl Katana Skis 2014:
So I'm sure the $1100+ carbon v-werks Katana is probably nice, I had to pick-up another pair of these as Volkl has discontinued them. They are really a great all-around powder ski. At the resort, things get tracked-out quick and these bust through the crud and chop with ease. I've skied "playfull" powder skis and yes once in a blue moon you get the epic conditions for them, but the Katanas deliver day in and day out. Not the lightest ski out there but hey that's why they bust the crud. With the slight rocker the 184s have been a great tree ski turning quickly in addition to providing decent float.
