A nimble and lightweight alpine-touring performer that’s packing plenty of Volkl’s premium tech to boost performance with minimal weight gains.

The 2018 Volkl VTA80 Lite is a high-performance touring-ready ski, that blends a climbing-friendly core with plenty of carbon for downhill performance and control.  The 80mm waist keeps them nimble, but there’s still plenty of surface area to enjoy all but the deepest snow conditions. Moderate taper in the tips delivers hook-free performance in deeper snow, while still maintaining plenty of effective edge for blasting across wind-scoured faces, skinning up icy traverses, or laying down a few turns on the groomers as you head home to the resort.

Keep weight to a minimum

Volkl’s touring ski-specific Hybrid Woodcore Ultralite combines poplar, paulownia and isocores to keep the weight of the VTA80 to an absolute minimum. The cores are shaped with 3D.Ridge Carbon – a central, carbon-jacketed ridge that’s flanked by weight and swing-reducing super-slim wings. The ski is shaped with the VTA Superlite outline, saving unnecessary weight wherever possible.

Tour-friendly features

Volkl’s Ice.Off topsheet sheds snow as you skin and climb, meaning you’re not going to be ascending with any extra weight. In the nose, Skin Pin inserts give you a 100% secure connection between your skins and the skin.

Powerful turning performance

The VTA80 Lite skis are shaped with a moderate taper that gives the ski an all-mountain combination that’s easy to handle on the piste and in the pow. The use of the Full Carbon Jacket that allows for direct transmission of your power to the ski, without adding any weight. The high-density P-Tex 4500 base offers race ski-like speed and absorbs plenty of wax when you get ‘em tuned.

If saving every possible gram is your game, but you still want a bit of power for the down – you can go wrong with the VTA80 Lite from Volkl.
