Review:

 

Smooth, easy, light, playful and VOLKL all in the same sentence??? Hard to believe. It seems that K2 has put more than money into Volkl..they put some of their easy skiing personality. Volkl took the popular AC30, and gave it a personality and made it, dare I say...fun & easy to ski. 

 

For those who feared Volkls, not the case any more, the RTM and Code series are some of the easier skiing performance skis out there. Relax, have fun and rip up the hill.
