Product Info

Daydreaming of riding kinked rails all day? Get out to the park and lay down your favorite kinked rail trick with style and ease on the Völkl Kink Skis. The Kink is Völkl's most versatile all mountain twin tip ski, and features tip and tail rocker for easy transitions in the pipe and stylish moves in the park.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Tip and Tail RockerA slight rocker bend in the tip and tail, complemented by traditional camber under foot. This slight rocker profile, combined with classic camber gives you the ideal blend for frontside carving. Easy, smooth turn entry and exit, with acceleration and rebound as well. While not as maneuverable in soft snow as Völkl's full rocker designs, this rocker design works well on hard snow or in the park and pipe.

Core

Multi-Layer SensorwoodCreated in a complex CNC milling process, a highly sophisticated milling program enables Völkl to produce wood cores with extreme precision. It is 'extended' upwards and lengthwise, and milled to form chambers for the vertical sidewalls and torsion box. The material is a blend of poplar and beech wood, and is found in Völkl's highest performing models.

Additional Features

Tough Box ConstructionTough Box Construction features a multi-layered wood core wrapped with a composite/fiberglass sheath to create the ultimate resilience and snap for Völkl’s freeskiing models. Surrounding the core in the mid-body of the ski, it adds snap, strength and binding screw retention.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

    Comments about Volkl Kink Skis 2014:

    I bought this ski for those leisure days when the conditions were normal. Light powder, groomed, bumps, crud...I purchased the 179 but would have liked the ski in a longer size. I stand 5'10. Mounted them +1cm and have skied them once so far. And they skied just how I thought: fun. They carve well, take the bumps at fast speeds very well. You can ski with confidence through bad terrain on these. They don't chatter at fast speeds like some of these all-mountain rockered skis. They have just the right amount of rocker. My only complaints but are tolerable are the longest length and durability of the topsheet. A 185 would be nice in this ski. I like long skis. And if you cross your skis you're bound to take a good chunk out of the topsheet. It's kinds of rubbery. All in all, this ski is fun and happy with the purchase. I shopped around and was drawn to this ski. the graphics are hot too.

    I wake in the morning, put my snow pants on around my knees, wear my XXXXXL jacket and and stick these fresh AF skis into my lowered 96' honda civic and go right to the terrain park. These ski's are straight gnar gnar. The pop is great, and they look a lot better in person. Made 3's a breeze.

      Really good skis. Light weight and able to do everything I wanted to do with them. These are my first center mounted skis so it took a little getting used to but once I learned them they work great for downhill carving and park skiing.
