VÖLKL 90EIGHT REVIEW — 2017

MSRP: $775.00
Get it for: $449.97

Back for its second season, there’s nothing sophomoric about the 90Eight’s frontside performance. On top of its high-speed ability, it’s lightweight and highly maneuverable. That nimbleness comes from a raised ridge—in front of and behind the binding—that runs down the gut of the ski and levels out as it approaches the ski’s edge. With the weight distribution focused in the center, the low swing weight is apparent immediately. Dense ash underfoot with a composite and fiberglass casing ensures premium stability and power while energetic poplar in the rest of the ski promotes maneuverability and liveliness. One tester took notice of the build, stating, “It’s surprisingly stable for how light it is. It’s a bullet on the hardpack.”
