I have a new love, my recently purchased Volkl Shiro Skis. I couldn’t wait any longer for the snow to fall so I took them out on the little snow Alta currently has and decided I was hooked. These skis were amazing on the ice, crud, groomers; truly an amazing all around ski. I haven’t skied the powedr yet but I’m sure they will more than exceed my expectations.
These skis are fully rockered, carbon reinforced wood core (ash, poplar, carbon) and a sandwich construction. I was nervous for the full rocker ski but it offered a solid and stable ride and made it easy to carve a turn on the groomers and made my turns off piste easy and were quick edge to edge. Dimensions are 151/119/135mm for all lengths and are available in the lengths of 173, 183, 193cm.
If you are looking for a big mountain, all around powder ski, look no further. The Volkl Shiro is the ski for you.
