Kink in the back? In the neck? Work out those rough spots with the Völkl Kink Skis, your one ski answer to the question of how to ski both the park and the rest of the mountain on one ski. Wide enough to handle the freshies with its 89 mm waist, and with a directional twin shape that kills it both regular and switch, the Kink will straighten you out in just a run or two.
Freeski Tip and Tail Rocker Makes the ski turn-friendly and allows for a stiffer flex setup. Only the shovel and tail zones bend upwards, with traditional cambering in the middle.
Directional Twintip Slightly directional shaping with more tail taper, and enough tail rocker to ride switch with total confidence.
Multi Layer Woodcore Völkl freeskiing models feature a multi-layer wood core that features 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 more secure screw retention, preventing binding pull-out, and the soft, supple poplar section allows for resilience and snap. The flex pattern is tailored to each ski model, depending on the desired performance.
Tough Box Construction Völkl protects the goods (in this case the Multi Layer wood core) with a composite and fiberglass sheath for resilience, durability and snap.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Comments about Volkl Kink Skis 2016:
Great all around ski, Bases and edges take a beating over rocks and into trees, but the topsheets chip pretty easily so its probably not the best for park. If you're ok with a couple of dings and you ride everything but park like me, great ski.
