Absolutely loved skiing the ski when we had powder (Christmas Day/Boxing Day in Europe this year :-( ). However it still held up for when the snow got a little thin, surprisingly quick edge to edge, even on hard snow I was able to easily ski with short turns. Has that notorious edge grip of a Volkl on piste, more than enough to ski on piste back to the chairlift. My biggest complaint came from my mistake of not buying the 195 length. Looking forward to many more happy powder days!
Fantastic. Carries the Volkl characteristics through to a big, fat, fully rockered powder ski.
I bought 185 and I'm 6ft. Although the 185 is not too short, in hindsight would have bought the 195 for a bit more stability at high speeds.
Eventually broke, but I've broken every pair of skis I own for the last 4 seasons. Not quite sure on how the damage came about but the sidewall cracked inline with the heel piece of the binding. Possible reason was given the stiffer (and therefore more brittle) section of the ski is under the foot, that a heavy cliff landing onto a rock or catching a rock whilst skiing was the cause.
