Völkl Shiro Skis – 2016
115+ MM Freeride Ranking: #02
Pow. Steeps. Crud. Pillows. Hardpack. More pow. The Völkl Shiro Skis were a popular choice among our testers who constantly yearn for big thrills. Its 119 mm footprint provides bangin’ fl oat, and full rocker ensures fantastic maneuverability. A fl atter tail provides added control for when the going gets fast. “It’s an absolute weapon in powder,” exclaimed one tester. Others noted it’s responsive, snappy and holds up well on the fi rm stuff. One said, “these bit into groomers very smoothly and carved hard.” A third felt the Shiro “carved like a demon, but really came alive in the deep.”
