General Description: The Volkl V-Werks Katana is the ultimate hard charging, all-mountain carbon construction ski. Take the incredible crud-busting, variable-snow-dominating characteristics of the old Katana and remove a whole heap of weight. It sounds impossible, but that is exactly what Volkl have done. The 3D Ridge construction further reduces mass on the edges of the ski, reducing the amount of inertia you have to overcome to manoeuvre the ski. Unusual for carbon-based skis, it has a damp, powerful feel reminiscent of heavier, metal skis.
Full rocker makes this ski extra nimble in deep snow and off-piste conditions, while the carefully designed rocker profile works in tandem with the sidecut to give this ski incredible edge grip in hard-pack. Click into these and hold on…
