Volkl needs a 115-122 ish ski!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have any info out there on a possible filling of an obvious gap in Volkl's line up? The jump from Katana at 111 waist to Chopstick 128 (symmetrical) seems to be too great and there is a huge market here. Espicially since there have been a lot of Gotamas sold that people are realizing are an all mountain ski that's good in powder. Mantra, Gotama and Katana there is a lot of cross over.

Please Volkl bring us a 120 elp!!

2012 Volkl Shiro is 151/119/135.  High ELP rocker.  173, 183, 193.  Gotama construction (no metal).  

 

Shiro is japanese for "white", whereas Kuro was japanese for black.  

 

Don't discount the Katana - it floats awesome.  I'm excited to try the Shiro but I don't really need any more float than my Katanas, plus I love the metal power construction Katana has.

Thanks! I own the Bridge and Gotama so Katana is a little too close in size to Gotama for me to switch. I have owned the Mantra and loved it too. I guess I'm a volkl guy. I'm thinking I'll kill my Goats by the end of this year and will want to go a little fatter for my next ski. Perhaps I'll demo the Katana as well.

I have 184 Mantras and 183 Katanas.  Since getting the Katanas the Mantras have been out twice is all.  Katana is ridiculously versatile.  

 

Next year my new ski lust will probably tempt me into either Kuros or Shiros.  The Shiro is awfully close in width to the Katanas though....

I feel the Goat is silly versatile as well. I use it most often unless I'm hitting the park or moguls all day. Shiros will be a good two ski quiver with the bridge I'm thinking. Even new Katana and Bridge.
