Volkl Vwerk Katana Skis - VIDEO REVIEW
At 112 underfoot they are surprisingly easy to put on edge and hold there. Most of this is due to the torsional rigidity which is impressive for such a wide, light ski. Their swing weight is crazy light, turn initiation is effortless (again given the dimensions of this ski) so pounding the bumps or nimbly dancing through the trees is a joy. The edge hold on groomers is better than any ski I have ever been on, even in icy conditions. They’re fast, powerful and so smooth at carving a turn. Both short and long radius turns are no problem for the Vwerks and the stability is unmatched. In crud and chop it feels like there isn’t anything to fight through as the wide shovel busts through it all, keeping you on course and surprisingly stable. When it comes to deep powder it’s obvious these skis will float and given their long early rise the tips never dive.
This is truly a quiver-of-one ski for both resort and touring folks alike.
