Skis for the week – a pair of Volkl rocker tips

By on January 9, 2015 in Austria, General

I spent this week skiing on a pair of Volkl rocker tips, and I liked them.

They were 170 cm with a 16.1 m turn. I found them to be light and responsive, and they skied very well. They coped with the hard packed powder and ice, and were good in the spring-like slush. I found them to be a good all-round mountain ski, and a lot if fun.

Funny how that has changed, I started on some 200 cm ‘straights’ and then went to 172 cm carvers. Then when I next hired some skis I was on 160 cm as ‘short was in’. Over the last few years I have been slowly worked back up to 170 cm by the ski hire guys. Looks like slightly longer is back in.
