All-mountain freeride dominance for the masses - premium v-werks tech at an accessible price

Since their W15/16 debut the Volkl 90EIGHT have had a huge impact. The 2019 version is back again this season and they’re as badass now as they were then. Lightweight and versatile, the 90EIGHT can handle pretty much anything you can throw in their path - bumps to trees to groomers, even powder and crud. Conceived to bridge the gap between Volkl’s mainline models and their ultra-premium V-Werks Design House line, the 90EIGHT takes the best parts from both families – the innovation of V-Werks and the affordability of mainline – and combines them with roaring success.

Stiff yet playful, surfy yet controlled

The secret to the 2019 90EIGHT’s anchor-like binding retention, precise control and long-lasting pop is their multi-layer wood core. By combining the stiff characteristics of ash underfoot, with the lively yet playful flex of poplar in the nose and tail, the 90EIGHT offers obedient control edge-to-edge with mellow entry and exit through turns. The reverse camber in the nose and tail raises the contact points so they remain catch-free in firmer conditions but give you floaty, loose control in powder. - you’ve still got full control underfoot though thanks to the traditional camber.

Tapered performance

If you’re an aficionado of all things Volkl, then you’re probably well-versed in the performance benefits afforded by their 3D carbon ridge technology – and likely bored as hell reading about it – but for the uninitiated, let us break it down for you. In short, it’s is one of the most advanced ski construction techniques which exists currently. The most prominent feature of the technology is the raised central ridge which tapers in depth from the centre of the ski out towards its tip and tail. This reduces the 90Eight’s swing weight by focusing its fulcrum underfoot, which significantly enhances the handling of the ski – pretty straight forward when you put it like that, right?

The 90Eight take design cues from the innovative V-Werks range and seamlessly combines it with the Volkl’s freeride specific construction. The result is a hybrid cross-over which aims to win over die-hard fans of the Kendo and Mantra.
