Product Info

Volkl Kiku Skis - Women's 2012: An all mountain master, the Volkl Kiku Skis feature a shape of 137-106-122mm. The Kiku Skis features Volkl s ELP - Elongated Low Profile rocker technology that allows incredible maneuverability in the deep stuff, combined with solid groomed-snow performance. A lightweight multi-layer Sensorwood gives the Kiku resilience and durability for any big-mountain challenge.

Product Details

Shape

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.

Construction

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.

Rounded top sheet is lighter, more maneuverable, and more durable.

Flex

Multi-Layer Wood Light Core has 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. The flex pattern can be tailored to each ski model to match the desired performance characteristics.

Sensorwood Light Core is CNC milled using vertically laminated wood.

      Comments about Volkl Kiku Skis - Women's 2012:

      I bought them to be my powder ski but was just
      amazed at how grippy and responsive they were on the grooomed and even hardpacked. They soon became my favorite ski in my quiver for everything. That they're great in powder goes
      without saying, but they are so agile and quick in the trees and bumps and the wide ride allows me to go as fast as I want confidently. They're
      truly my dancing shoes of choice.
