        So I most likely finished up my last season on these bad boys and could not be more pleased! I have over 150 days on my walls and they are still holding strong, no edges are gone, no sidewall blowouts, and only minor decontamination on the tips. Going to be buying a new pair next year! Go Volkl.

        Overall

        I Loved the Wall. If you want a fast, durable, and stiff park ski that slays the whole mountain, look no further than the Volkl wall.

        Performance

        I loved the wall. It skis fast and can carve the groomers unlike any other park ski I have ridden before. Skiing switch has never been so fun, because the Wall holds an edge like a carving ski; both when skiing backwards and forwards. I ski on the east coast at one of the iciest mountains around (Shawnee Peak), and it's often hard to find a ski that skis well in the park and holds an edge on ice. The wall holds an edge on icy hard pack extremely well, even after the edges have dulled from rails. It's also a blast in the park, and holds up great to the abuse it gets from rails and boxes. However, it is to be noted that the Wall is stiffer than most park skis on the market, so if you're looking for flex, you won't find it in these skis.

        Design

        I wasn't really a fan of the topsheet design, but you pay for a ski that shreds, not one that looks pretty; and the Wall shreds.

        Value

        I snagged mine at the end of the season so I got a good deal, but I would not complain if I had to pay the full price for these skis, they're worth it.

        Fit

        I am 5'10" and rode on 177's and they fit perfectly for me.

        Characteristics

        The wall is Volkl's stiffest park ski, and it shows. The Wall is not a ski made for butters and flexing all over the place (unless you're a heavier skier). The stiffness is great for going fast and shredding the whole mountain, as well as stomping jump landings.

        Durability

        I skied 50+ days on them before I got injured and it only has one edge crack, and only the slightest delam. The bases held up very well too. I rode over rocks and sticks and the bases took the abuse like it was nothing.
