Brand Spotlight: Volkl Leads the Way in Performance Skis

Since 1923 this “Made in Germany” brand had been at the forefront of high-tech innovation in the world of downhill skiing. Their mission is simple: to enthusiastically innovate the best products for skiers, in a sustainable way. 

Volkl’s cutting-edge technology, combined with traditional craftsmanship, results in high-quality, technologically advanced alpine skis — just ask the dozens of athletes who compete with them (many also happen to be decorated Olympians), including Alex Beaulieu-Marchand, a Canadian freestyle skier who took home bronze at the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang. 

Sustainability is also at the core of their brand, as they have seen first-hand how winter sports are being disproportionately impacted by climate changes. As the last remaining ski manufacturer in Germany, Volkl makes the effort to be sustainable from the start to finish of the product lifecycle — from where they source their raw materials to using reusable, returnable packaging for distribution. 

Whether you’re an Olympian hopeful or just like to feel like one on the slopes, Volkl delivers.

Primarily designed for short, fast turns, the three different radii together with the multilayer wood core, adapt to your riding style. 

Blaze 94 W Ski

Volkl likes to call the Blaze 94 W “sporty” because they made it for the skier who revels in agile, responsive turns.
