Volkl Shiro Skis 2012: The new Volkl Shiro Skis have a shape of 151-119-135. It’s a blend of playful, easy powder skiing and solid, stable ride quality to represent yet another new pinnacle in Volkl s long history of building big mountain skis that offer incredible float combined with surprising groomed snow performance.
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.

Comments about Volkl Shiro Skis 2012:
The new Shiro rocks! Its has a great flex: stiff without the rigidness of a metal ski. It has the shape of a slimmed down Kuro and is much more versatile. This ski makes different turns in different conditions. It has everything I like in a ski: wide, stable, and more fun than metal.
