    Manufacturer's Description

    The 100EIGHT’s new 3D.GLASS construction features an extra layer of fiberglass along the bottom that extends over the sidewalls for added stability and pop. Its lightweight, lively ski feel is combined with a smoothness and stability normally reserved for much heavier skis.

    100EIGHT

    $825.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    In its sophomore year, this very thin, very light ski is damper and more stable than the first iteration of the Volkl 100Eight, due to an added layer of fiberglass. It has full rocker, early taper, a wood core and carbon stringers, and trademark Volkl fast-skiing, big-turn reliability.

    In both men’s and women’s versions (they are the same, save for the graphic; women’s is pictured), this is a softer and more accessible ski than other Volkls, like the Katana. At 108 millimeters underfoot, the 100Eight is ideal for the older Western ex-racer that lives in a place where it snows a lot, and wants a ski that can float as well as carve without tiring you out. Its subtle rocker bends along the entire length of the ski, and Volkl simply knows how to make a ski that can hold an edge.

    “This is a comfortable, fun, forgiving, mass-market ski,‰” said David Page. “It’s easy to jump into—a versatile tool for all terrain and conditions.‰”

    Get on the 100Eight and it feels like a high-quality, non-chattering, machine, if not a very playful one. These skis are meant to float or get on edge, not butter, slash, jump, or twist. Entering and exiting a turn, however, comes easy. The 100Eight, with those minimal edges, weighs just 1970 grams, extremely lightweight for a ski this size. “It was awesome in soft snow and it engaged and was stable on hardpack and variable snow, too,‰” said Abigail Barronian. “Overall, it wants you get forward and make big, gorgeous turns and surf the soft stuff. It’s an ideal ski for a charging skier that lives in Utah or the Pacific Northwest.”• —John Clary Davies

    Manufacturer's Description

    She’s not bossy. She’s the F*ckin’ Boss and when you’re struggling through Sierra cement or busting up 2-day-old crud you’re going to want a ski that’s not afraid to push back. Modeled after our best selling SOS ski, the Abyss is a little bigger, a little stiffer and a lot more assertive because when you’re coming in hot, size and stiffness matter. Oops, did we say that out loud?
