The 90EIGHT is the most versatile ski in the most versatile range. With its 3D.Ridge construction and added 3D.Glass, designed to reduce the ski’s weight while increasing stability and smoothness, the 90EIGHT is an all-mountain ski that handles anything from bumps, to trees, to groomers, and even powder and crud. The moderate taper sidecut and precision-matched flex allow you to steer it anywhere you want to go to rip up the mountain with an easy, cruisy feel. And on a sidenote: This tip & tail rocker ski originally wasn’t built for on-piste usage, but it is always a pleasure to see how good it works there too.
ROCKER- Tip & Tail Rocker
CORE- Multi Layer Woodcore
RECOMMENDED BINDING- Marker King Pin, Marker Royal Family
3D Glass- 3D.GLASS is Völkl’s latest development to furthermore improve overall ski performance and stability even in critical snow conditions. Compared to classic glass constructions the three-dimensional and multiple-folded glass layers in the binding area result in an increased edge grip and a more vivid rebound behavior in turns.
MultiLayer Woodcore- The combination of beech and poplar results in an extremely durable wood core composed of hard wood in the binding area and lighter wood around.
Carbon Stingers- Additional band of carbon in the layup for direct transmission, agility and life.
3D.Ridge- Central Woodcore Ridge with superslim wings to significantly reduce weight and swing weight and keep the stability where necessary.
Our 3D.Ridge technology - is probably the most extreme and effective construction technique that currently exists. It has become a symbol of VÖLKL lightweight construction.
The distinctive characteristic of this technology is a raised central ridge that sharply levels out towards the edges, both in front of and behind the binding. This reduces the inertial mass around the fulcrum to a minimum and significantly enhances the agility of the ski. At the same time, the center ridge allows for a precise dimensioning of the hardness distribution, which leads to an especially harmonious flex on the ski. Despite the weight savings, the 3D.Ridge ensures that there are no compromises in the ski‘s durability and elasticity.
Full Sidewall- Direct and strong powertransmission with full length sidewalls.
Moderate Taper- Moderate setup of tapered tips for an allmountain oriented combination of precision on piste and easy handling off piste.
