2008 Volkl Fuego Alpine Ski w/ Attiva Motion iPT 11.0 TC Binding - Women's

Posted

Pros: Lots of pop, loves speed, versatile turn shape and size.

Cons: Not great in cruddy snow or pow.

I loved, loved loved this ski!!! (2007/2008 edition)

 

I demoed this ski in both the 154cm and the 161cm lengths and found distinct differences in their stability at speed and forgiveness (probably only really noticeable because I did these demos back-to-back).

 

The Fuego (spanish for Fire) is a little spitfire. It's a bouncy, poppy little carver that dances down the mountain with aplomb. It happily and speedily made short, medium, and even long turns without a hitch. It has that legendary Volkl edge grip, perfect for east coast or midwest "hardpack" (aka ice). While it didn't shine in cruddy snow or pow, it easily skidded through chop but prefered carving high speed trenches on the groomed.

 

I found the 154cm to be much more forgiving of the occasional lapse into the back seat and other technique errors and it was much easier to skid consistently than the 161cm. I found the 161cm to be much more stable at high speeds and much happier in long turns than the 154cm.

 

This is the perfect hard snow ripper for any agressive advanced to expert woman craving speed, pop, and stability at speed and the versatility to make any size or shape turn at any time. Buy this ski, ride it hard and fast, and be prepared to wait until you thaw out to remove the big grin from your face!!

Description:

Your all-mountain ski and binding should work together like a smooth, well-oiled shredding machine. Welcome to the Volkl Women's Fuego Alpine Ski with Attiva Motion iTP 11.0 TC Binding. The engineers built the binding interface into the ski body. What does that mean? Well, this ski has dual chambers that extend from tip to tail, and the sides of the binding sit directly on top of these chambers, so you get direct energy transfer on the slopes. A women s-specific core lightens the weight and softens the flex (as compared to a men s ski), and two sheets of titanium above and below the core reinforce the ski, add stability, and dampen vibration at high speeds.
