New for 2014, the Völkl One Skis are a shift in powder ski design. Using an early taper design, the Völkl One Skis are designed for skiers who want smoother, more floaty turns in deep snow. The widest point in the ski moves towards the middle and away from the tip, giving skiers more smearing capability and allowing for a more playful ski across big mountain and backcountry terrain. With a more moderate 116 mm waist than the Two, the Völkl One is a great daily driver choice in areas that get a lot of snow.
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.
New One and Two Sidecut The new One, Two and Three models feature a completely new sidecut shape that tapers towards the tip and tail. The widest points are now closer to the mid body allowing the skis to drift more easily, especially through powder. One and Two gain a special playful quality that shines through in powder and heavy snow.
Multi-Layer Sensorwood Created 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.
Power Construction 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.
|Tip Width (mm)||138||138||138||138|
|Waist Width (mm)||116||116||116||116|
|Tail Width (mm)||130||130||130||130|
|Turning Radius (m)||16.3||19.7||23.5||27.5|

Comments about Volkl One Skis 2015:
Demo'd these in about 10"-12" of fresh powder, and cut up pow. I was immediately impressed with how smooth, and stable these skiers are. I skied through some cut up pow, and they just cruise. It's very easy to slarve, or pivot these skies. Because of the fairly long, and gradual tip rise, you can ski this a bit forward, and not get punished, or kicked into the backseat.
Very impressive float in shin deep snow, and even some knee deep wind drift. The ski doesn't really carve in the powder, you just shift your weight, and move your hips, and the skis do the rest.
I did seem to find them a bit awkward on the groomers. I couldn't really get them to hook up and carve. But I don't have a lot of experience on rockered skis. Moguls are doable but not their intended use.
No tip chatter, and the ski felt light, yet stable. Definitely impressed with how easy this ski handled the transition between pockets of powder, and the cut up/tracked out runs.
I also had some time in heavier mank, and the ski has the stiffness to handle that type of snow with out getting deflected. But not so stiff, that it felt like you had to be "on", or risk getting punished. A very user friendly powder tool, that also skis well when most of the freshies are gone.
