Volkl AC30 sidewall question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have a pair of AC30's and when I was getting them out for the season I noticed a small dent in one of the raised walls about ten inches in front of the binding. Will this cause or create any kind of problem functionally or structurally?

probably not... a photo to see what the heck you are talking about would sure help.

I tried to take a picture, but it is so small that my camera can't pick it up. It is a small dent on the raised sidewall that just compresses the raised part a bit. Not sure if that makes sense?

It is on the right side of the ski on the right, two little lines/dents followed by a bigger one

Any feedback on the pic, does anyone else have ac30/50 Do the the rails normally get dents?

 

Any feedback is appreciated.

They are skis.  You ski them, they will get banged up.  The raised rails on your skis are wood stringers with a cosmetic top.  Nothing in that pic to worry about.

Thank you Rick G, just wanted to make sure

I've got those same skis and have a few compressed edges on them from last year at Keystone (horrible coverage on in-bounds runs). I had just bought them, too. I'm just going to ski on them and try to put the compressions on the outside edges; I don't think it will be a big issue, unless they start de-laminating.
 
My point is, you should have nothing to worry about =)

Just wanted to thank everyone for the advice, the skis work like a charm. Unfortunately I demo'd a pair of RTM 84 yesterday and I am now on the hunt for those.

 

Anyone want to buy a pair of gently used AC 30's??
