SLICING AND DICING ITS WAY THROUGH THE BACKCOUNTRY AND BEYOND, THE KATANA EMBODIES ITS NAMESAKE THROUGH ITS DEDICATION TO PREMIUM CRAFTMANSHIP AND LIGHTWEIGHT FINESSE.

It’s the ski of choice for Volkl big mountain pros… and for good reason - the Katana V-Werks is one serious piece of kit. Conquer chutes with pin-point accuracy, traverse wind-scoured faces with reliable edge hold and charge spines effortlessly on this innovative next-gen ski. While the Katana’s technically a freeride ski, there’s no reason not to mount them with a lightweight touring binding -getting you into harder to reach areas for almost limitless backcountry possibilities. Stiff without compromising playfulness, the Katana is intended for only the most advanced and expert skiers.

German efficiency

A mainstay in Volkl’s state-of-the-art V-WERKS line, the Katana is constructed using only the most premium materials. Underfoot there’s powerful and responsive Ash wood, then through the nose and tail you’ll find ultralight, yet durable, Paulownia. This unique combination of woods not only give the Katana solid and reliable edge-hold with an even flex pattern from tip-to-tail, but it ensures that the final product is as light as it possibly can be. Coupled with Volkl’s carbon-fibre wrapped 3D.Ridge design – which centres the ski’s fulcrum underfoot for drastically reduced swing weight – the Katana is perfect for hiking big mountain lines, before dropping into no-fall zones where precision and stability are paramount.

Full throttle powder prowess

When you finally find yourself in the deep stuff, the Katana’s full rocker camber gives you bags of float to keep you sitting high. As well as increasing buoyancy, the raised contact points also reduce the chances of catching your edges in firmer conditions. This is complemented by the Katana’s tapered nose and tail design which shifts the widest points of the sidecut towards the centre of the ski. As well as a further reduction in tip and tail hang-ups on hard pack, it gives the skis a turn radius which you’d normally only achieve by dropping several sizes.

Sometimes too much ski is a bad thing, however Volkl have somehow managed to build one of the most technologically advanced skis on the planet, yet ensure it retains a playful, fun and manageable character. The Katana might not be the cheapest ski around, but if you can justify the expense the trade-off is years of freeskiing fun.

Size Guide

The size chart below provides a basic guide to finding the right ski length based on your height and ability but there are several other factors you should consider before choosing your new skis!

The two most relevant considerations when interpreting the chart below are your weight and the type of skiing you intend to do. 

Weight: If you’re a heavier built that the average person of your height then we suggest choosing a longer ski as a heavier skier requires more edge to grip the snow and more base area for floatation in powder and cruddy snow.  Conversely, if you’re a slimmer build you may want to consider going for a shorter ski as you’ll need less edge / ski to support your weight than someone of an ‘average’ build.

Skier Type: Secondly, if you want a ski that’s going to inspire confidence when you’re skiing fast and you like to ski faster than most, then a longer ski is going to be preferable.   The additional edge and float provided by a longer ski will give you a more stable ride.  If, however, you’re more freestyle focussed and you want a ski that’s going to be more nimble and easier to manoeuvre at low speeds then a slightly shorter ski will work better for you as there will be less ski to manage.

If you have any queries at all on finding the right ski or ski size for you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for further advice.
