Volkl Kuro Skis 2012: The Kuro is Volkl s widest ski, with a shape of 164-132-139, combined with Volkl s exclusive Extended Low Profile (ELP) rocker technology. Incredibly easy to handle for their width, the Volkl Kuro Skis’ shape and overall setup make them ideal for charging through the deepest of conditions. The Kuro is one of the smoothest feeling water skis known to snow.
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.

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.
Multi-Layer Wood 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 Core is CNC milled using vertically laminated wood.
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.
