Met up with Geoff Curtis of Volkl at this past SIA on the snow demos, to get a video review of the new VTA 108. The new VTA 108 enters Völkl’s freeride touring collection as a new ski dedicated to combining optimal climbing characteristics with great downhill performance in soft or variable snow. The 108mm waist is able to float in powder but is not so wide as to limit performance should things turn firm. It brings all of our touring technologies to bear, including a lightweight multi-layer wood core, touring optimized tip shape, and a carbon tip stabilizer. It also features the ICE.OFF top sheet, designed to keep snow from sticking and further optimizing weight reduction when the skier needs it most.
