The re-designed Volkl Unlimited AC Skis rely on Progressive Technology to give intermediate skiers effortlessly easy turning and comfort. The AC flows in and out of the turn with ease, but in the middle of the turn the skier feels rock-solid grip. Comprised of the new Progressive Edge tip and Progressive Flex tail, Progressive Technology allows the skier to ease into and out of the turn effortlessly. At the tail, the ski’s profile becomes very thin in the middle - torsionally soft for the last 7cm, allowing the skier to exit the turn at will. The ski accelerates less aggressively out of the turn to help prevent the skier from sitting in the proverbial “back seat”. The skier can make better turns with less effort. The Progressive Edge utilizes an early rise concept in the tip of the ski. Bringing the widest part of the ski up a little higher ensures easier directional stability, and the tip only engages when the ski is on edge, adding to the skier’s comfort level.
Völkl reinvents a historic construction and takes it to the next level with the new Speedwall technology. Modern ski designs and today‘s race courses involve spending more time on the sidewalls and edges. Völkl engineers siezed an opportunity to make faster skis – we view the sidewalls not just as lateral boundaries, but a continuation of the surface in contact with the snow. We make Speedwall sidewall material out of a proprietary composite sintered base material – Speedwall sidewalls can be waxed, just like the bases. In racing, that means less friction and more speed!
