Product Info

This ski has attained legendary status, and for good reason. Völkl began with the old school Katana, a heavy big mountain plank, and completely revamped the construction with the most advanced tech they had. The rest, as they say, is history. Since then, the Völkl Katana V-Werks Skis have been one of the most revolutionary, advanced, and just darn good big mountain skis out there. The V-Werks series is all about cutting weight wherever possible without sacrificing performance, and the Katana is the prime example of the success of the philosophy. Despite the wafer thin sidewalls at the tip at tail, the V-Werks Katana is as sturdy as they come. These things float through pow, drive with power, and still somehow clock in at a weight you wouldn't mind slapping a touring binding on.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Full RockerThe ski is bent at a constant curvature along its entire length.

Shape

3D.Ridge CarbonCentral Woodcore Ridge with superslim wings to significantly reduce weight and swing weight and keep the stability where necessary. Combined with Full Carbon Jacket for Stability.

Moderate TaperModerate setup of tapered tips for an allmountain oriented combination of precision on piste and easy handling off piste.

Core

Multilayer Woodcore LightThe combination of beech and poplar results in an extremely durable wood core composed of hard wood in the binding area and lighter wood surrounding it. Slotted to reduce weight.

Laminates

ICE.OFF TopsheetTopsheet technology to reduce the weight of the ski when skiing and hiking. Will reduce the snow attachment to the ski at an average of 20% to 30%. The next step in effective weight reduction. ICE.OFF stands for the latest topsheet technology on our touring skis. The unique surface structure and material composition reduces icing as the snow simply slides off the topsheet. This leads to a drastic reduction of weight in use, on average up to 20% to 30%. In addition, mainly white graphics support the anti-icing effect. Lighter skis prevent fatigue, especially on long and steep uphill sections.

Full Carbon JacketMaterial layup for direct transmission and high reliability/stability at the lighest possible weight.

Sidewalls

Center SidewallDirect and strong power transmission with partial sidewalls in the center of the ski, combined with the superslim 3D.Ridge construction.

Base

P-Tex 4500 BaseA sintered, ultra-high molecular polyethylene base with an extremely high density. Besides a great wear resistance and perfect wax absorption, this base material is extremely fast and exclusively used on Volkl's top of the line and race models. The material has been upgraded with special additives to make it thermal and electro-conductive and proves its qualities with premium glide and maximum speed in races.

Additional Features

SkinPinA skin fastening system that is magnificent in its simplicity: perfect fixation and easy to use; full functionality without unnecessary bells and whistles. The skin is attached by inserting its pin through a shaped hole in the shovel of the ski. The skin is then rotated 90° to lock it in place. Once rotated the skin fixation is 100% reliably secured. The system can be monitored by the skier from above at any time to provide visual peace of mind. The hole in the tip of the ski is also helpful for building a rescue toboggan in an emergency.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
