The Völkl V-Werks Katana Skis are an amazing ride that simply do everything well while weighing less. Short radius turns, long radius turns, stability at speed, float in pow and edgehold on hard snow - they're all there in spades and in a featherweight package to boot. A tremendous choice as a quiver-of-one for the soft snow oriented, and light enough to use as a touring rig as well, the V-Werks Katana simply must be skied to be believed. Watch out when you throw them over your shoulder, you'll think you forgot one ski!
ELP Full Rocker - Völkl matches the sidecut and flex of the ski perfectly to give it a smooth, gradual bend from tip to tail. This results in easy maneuverability in tight spaces and soft snow, but enables the skier to gain full edge contact when the ski is put on edge. Full Rocker skis have a slightly stiffer tip and softer mid-body to give you bomber stability, uncanny smoothness and easy turn initiation in one package.
3-D Shape - Völkl trims mass wherever possible on the V-Werks models, with ultra thin profiles at tip and tail.
Xtra Light Core - Multi-layer core of very lightweight wood with channels milled out of the bottom for additional weight savings. Denser ash is used in the binding mount area for extra pullout strength, while lighter poplar is used in the tip and tail.
Full Carbon Jacket
Carbon Short Sidewall - A short, thick sidewall construction under the boot tapers toward the tip and tail of the ski, leaving an ultra thin profile.
Made in Germany
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
