Product Info

The Völkl VTA 98 Skis are among the lightest touring options in the 95-100 mm touring class, and as such ideal for general touring or spring and summer touring with big objectives in mind. Relaxed and confident in variable snow, but with impeccable edgehold in firm conditions, this is a great choice for multi-day hut trips or spring volcano missions.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Tip RockerFor all-mountain skiing and even racing on narrower ski designs, 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. The ski is forgiving playful, and easy to handle.

Shape

VTA Superlight OutlineGram-cheating outline at tip and tail saves weight.

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

Core

Tourlite WoodcoreThe combination of Beech under the binding and Poplar plus Paulownia in the outer areas results in a very lightweight woodcore construction which works especially well for touring skis.

Laminates

ICE.OFF TopsheetThe 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.

Carbon.TipTip material layup for high reliability/stability at the lightest possible weight.

Sidewalls

Cap ConstructionDurable construction with topsheet wrapping over the full woodcore.

Base

P-Tex 2100 BaseA sintered high-density and high molecular polyethylene base with great gliding characteristics and high durability.

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.
