128-85-112. Dimensions that may warm the hearts and get the feet of many a back-country all-mountain skier twitching. The all-new Unlimited 50 features slightly narrower dimensions than Volkl’s range topping all-mountain ski The Grizzly but for many a seasoned skier looking for a slightly more economical and less technology loaded ski the Unlimited 50 will fit the bill.
Featuring some staple Volkl technology such as Double Grip construction and an XTD (Extended) Wood Core the Unlimited proves a smooth and capable performer both on European rough prepared groomers, icy crud and is pretty silky through the powder.
Slightly turned up at the tail for an ease of finish to your turns the AC 50 is much easier than the old Volkl "girders" of all old such as the legendary G3’s and G 4’S – but thank goodness they have changed for lighter and more tailored constructions and flexes to make an all-conditions ski that will suit many advanced to expert skiers looking to explore every corner of the mountain even if it isn’t at full-on freerider speeds.
