Punchy slalom performers, I always love how this last few versions of Volkl’s slalom skis have gripped, tracked and carved such clean arcs on very frim pistes. Although not the pure race FIS ski it is a very grippy and lively ski but one that does have a tendency to be a little too keen to perform the same shape of turn repeatedly. Advanced to expert skiers will really enjoy the power and fluidity of the Racing SL’s and they way they make you feel so confident at the beginning of the turn. An excellent package for short turn lovers.
The manufacturer says this about the Volkl Racing SL Racetiger 2008:
The explosive Racing SL favours short radii and tight slalom turns. The high quality construction meets the demands of top skiers as the titinal inserts develop their brilliant cushioning effect only at top speeds.
