Product Info

A truly revolutionary ski that turned the ski industry on its head a few seasons ago, the Völkl V-Werks Katana Skis continue to amaze in 2018. Lighter than almost anything else in their class, with a super thin profile and a shape that yearns for deep days, the V-Werks Katana is an ideal ski for big mountain powder touring when you know you want some extra flotation but don't want to drag around unnecessary weight.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Full RockerVölkl 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 of 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.

Shape

Moderate Tip & Tail Taper

3D.Ridge Carbon TechnologyVölkl's revolutionary 3D.Ridge construction features a distinctive ridge down the center of the ski that bevels out to a very thin edge both in front of and to the rear of the binding. This significantly reduces inertial mass at the perimeter of the ski, increasing agility.

Core

Multi-Layer Wood CoreVölkl 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.

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

Recommended BindingsMarker Royal Family or Kingpin bindings (see your shop tech concerning compatibility with other brands).

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