Volkl Chiara Skis + Essenza 4Motion 11.0 TC Bindings - Women's 2014

For intermediate to advanced female skiers looking for an exciting front side ride with effortless handling, the Völkl Chiara Skis + Essenza 4Motion 11.0 TC Bindings package is a dream come true. Its new construction provides the skier with both lighter weight and a flatter stance than previous models. This is the most exciting women's game improvement ski in years!
Rocker Type
Tip Rocker - An early-rise tip design. The combination of an early rise tip and a classic camber profile in the rest of the ski provides easy, smooth turn entry regardless of conditions. In softer snow the ski is incredibly forgiving, floats better, and requires less energy to ride.
 
Flex
Bio-Logic Flex - Völkl engineers carefully match the flex of all Bio-Logic models to work in synergy with proper stance and geometry. Stiffer in the front of the ski for quick turn initiation, and softer in the tail for easy turn exit, the Bio-Logic flex enhances flex distribution and gives the skier the ultimate in comfort and control. The new Essenza models now incorporate tip rocker in their flex patterns.
 
Sidecut
Bio-Logic Sidecut - Bio-Logic sidecut shapes are wider in the tip, and narrower in the tail than unisex skis, featuring a specific, progressive design that has a tighter radius in the front of the ski and a longer radius toward the tail. The narrower tail allows the skier to finish the turn with less effort, reducing the load on the knees. Rocker makes the overall ride smoother and more maneuverable regardless of snow conditions.
 
Core
Xtra-Light - In the new V-Werks and Essenza series, along with the Backcountry series, Völkl's Xtra-light wood cores are created using lighter weight Pauwlonia wood, with channels milled out of the bottom of the core. Snappy and resilient, these high tech wood cores save weight while improving performance.
 
Laminates
Powered by Steel - A thin layer of steel provides excellent torsional rigidity and stability on choppy snow.
Additional Features
Bio-Logic Stance - Bio-Logic models with rocker now utilize the profile of the ski to create a more level stance. This allows the stance to be adjusted without adding an extra spacer in the binding. Bio-Logic allows you to ski without overloading of the quad muscles, making your skiing more relaxed and enjoyable.
 
XTD Transmission - XTD Transmission follows a similar philosophy to Dual XTD Transmission, although the reinforcement is less pronounced, giving the ski a softer feel. Optimized for ambitious intermediates, the ski’s construction provides plenty of power transmission, allowing the skier to rise to the next level of speed and confidence.
 
Included Bindings
4Motion 11.0 TC Essenza Bindings - DIN 3-11 / Triple Pivot Compact toe / Comfort heel
Bindings Do Not Come Mounted to Skis - Always have a certified binding technician mount and adjust your bindings.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Carving
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Carving
    For those that like the classic feeling of laying a ski over on edge and arcing a perfect turn, carving skis are what you want. These skis have narrower waists and shorter turn radii for edge to edge quickness and responsive turn initiation and exit on groomed runs and hard pack. The beginner-intermediate skis in this category are designed to make learning how to turn as easy as going from pizza to French fries.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • Turning Radius: Short
  • Core/Laminates: Metal, Wood
  • Tail Type: Flat
    Flat
    This is your traditional tail, designed to have edge contact all the way through the tail, and only designed for skiing forward. This is also preferred for alpine touring, as you can stick the tails of your skis in the snow.

  • DIN: High: 11
