The Völkl 90Eight is hot… much like that Nick Lachey-led ’90s boy band with a similar name, only way better. The perennial Editors’ Pick utilizes a poplar and ash wood core that provides a mix of rigidity, stability and energy, along with carbon stringers for a touch of torsional stiffness. In addition, Völkl implements multiple layers of folded glass in the binding area to improve responsiveness and power transmission to the edges. The end result is a ski that can charge with the best of ’em and isn’t a slouch in the playfulness department, either. “These carved trenches around the entire hill,” commented Thomas Lampert. “They were also fun to pop off side hits and ride the tails.” Like we said, these cats are hot.
