2013 Volkl Kink


Pros: Playful and inexpensive

Cons: Could be pigeonholed as a "twiner" ski



The Kink was my runner up behind the Salomon Rocker2 90 in my 2013 "Steals & Deals". The Kink is the spiritual successor in the Volkl line to the Karma and Bridge, a ski that fills the niche between the al-mountain lines and Park series and lighter powder skis. The Kink very well could be the best combination of the three and the most versatile....for the least amount of money.

2013 Volkl Kink

Taking what we learned about rocker designs in the past few years, we‘ve created the most versatile all mountain twin tip on the hill. The new Kink features tip and tail rocker and a new, directional shape of 122-89-112. Bolstered by a Multi-Layer wood core and our bomber tough box construction, it‘s as at home in the pipe and park as it is ripping down groomers or even an occasional tree run.
