Volkl VTA 98 Skis 2020

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.

Marker Kingpin 10 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings 2020

When it comes to tech bindings you can use for daily skiing, the Marker Kingpin 10 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings still rule the roost. Light enough for adventurous touring but tough enough to slap on your daily drivers, the Kingpin 10 simply gets the job done with a weight of only 758 grams per foot. In addition, the power transmission with the spring-loaded Kingpin heel unit is a an improvement you'll feel over the traditional twin-pin tech heel connection. A favorite of hard charging backcountry types and working snow professionals. *Please Note: These bindings have updated toe pieces from Marker and are not affected by the August, 2018 recall.*

Product Details

Toe

Kingpin ToeThe PinTech design on the KingPin toe piece promotes an ergonomic rolling up the foot and the most direct possible connection to the ski. Six steel springs capture the energy optimally, up to a DIN setting of 13. Individually adjustable positioning blocks make it quick and easy to step in no matter what the conditions.

Updated ToeThese bindings have updated toe pieces from Marker and are not affected by the August, 2018 recall.

Heel

Kingpin HeelThe revolutionary heel construction for the PinTech bindings features wide sole contact points to deliver the kind of direct, lossless power transfer more frequently seen in alpine bindings.

Tour Mode

Kingpin Climbing Aid | 0° / 7° / 13°Good climbing aids have one thing in common: Whatever the situation, they can be operated by feel, even when the skier can't see them clearly. Simplicity is a virtue here, and reduced exertion is even better. The KINGPIN wins hearts and minds through two integrated climbing aids (7° and 13°) that are easily deployed or stowed using the basket of the pole. They can also be operated conveniently using the tip of the pole, allowing them to work with any basket style. Because the climbing aids are positioned in the upper center of the heel piece, they are always easy to reach.

Walk / Ski ModesThe refined locking/unlocking procedure for the heel piece is part of the binding's charm. It takes just one step to switch from walk to ski mode: Simply flip a lever, push down on the heel and you're good to go. The mechanism works even in critical situations and challenging descents.

Boot Compatibility

One Size Fits AllBoots with tech toe fittings are required.
