Völkl 90Eight Skis – 2016
90 – 99 MM Freeride Ranking: #06
Völkl knocked it out of the park with its new Völkl 90Eight Skis. Constructed with the brand’s 3D.Ridge technology — a raised, central ridge that levels out towards the ski’s edge, fore and aft of the binding—the ski is both nimble and ultra-lightweight. Still, these skis maintain top-notch stability thanks to a composite fiberglass sheath surrounding the core, boosting strength and torsional rigidity. “They’re a smooth, reliable thing of beauty,” noted a member of our tester squad. Jump on the 90Eight wagon and open a can of whoop ass all over the place.
