If you've got the kind of kid who shuns the park and longs to follow you into the backcountry to crush some big powder lines, then more power to 'em! Do them a favor and pick up a pair of the Völkl Shiro Jr Skis, a rare example of an honest-to-goodness wood core and sidewall construction wide ski built specifically for kids. Like its bigger namesake, the Shiro Jr floats the fluff like a champ but also has the guts to make clean turns at speed on the groomers. Get the ski you wished you had as a kid and jump on the Shiro Jr before your kid lets another pow day slip by.
Full Rocker Völkl Full Rocker is a smooth, gradual bend from tip to tail, with matching sidecut and a symmetrical flex pattern. 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.
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.
