Volkl Snoweagle Skis 2008/9

Volkl Snoweagle Skis 2008/9

New for 08/09 the Snoweagles are freeride- touring skis with a hefty sidecut for grea carves in the powder. With a fibreglass torsion-box the ski Snoweagle gives good torsional stability on firm snow but it is never going to give you the sort of piste-performance that a true “piste-carver” will.

So a great pair of skis for the day ski tourer. Not for racing up hills but for enjoying the back-country, light and agile enough for the hike up with lots of sidecut, a decent 82 mm waist underfoot and guaranteed fun heading down, and thats what skiing is generally about, the thrill of swooping down rather than the slog of skinning up.

The manufacturer says this about the Volkl Snoweagle Skis 2008/9:
