The Volkl 100Eight is a great example of Volkl's German engineeriong keeping the brand relevant, even after ninety years! The Volkl 100Eight utilizes Volkl's 3D ridge technology. FIrst introduced in the BMT line of touring skis to reduce weight, Volkl has expanded this innovation to a multi-layer "tough box" wood core ski. 3D Ridge definitely keeps weight down, but it also provides more precise pressure distribution and achieves the most advantageous flex, stability and performance in freeride skis. The lighter weight, tapered tip and rull rocker in the Volkl 100Eight help it feel right at home floating in the powder, while enhancing turn initiation throughout the mountain's differing terrain. The progressive edge and progressive flex help to only engage the tip when needed and keeps the skier out of the backseat when heading into the next turn. The Volkl 100Eight provides skiers with the unique opportunity to have a one ski freeride quiver for whatever the Best Coast has to offer.
