Difference between Volkl P9 rs and Volkl P9 rs Super

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Does anybody still knows the difference between those ski's?  It's hard to still find references about these skis. I can get my hands on some new (NOS) rs's.  Currently I have the rs super's.

This! Although in that era the difference in radii was probably 65m v. 70 smile.gif 

 

IIRC correctly the supers had more yellow on the top sheet.  Both excellent skis for the period  which would have been around 1990

Yes indeed, mine date back from that period. Got hold of some P10 rs super's yesterday. Will put them in the snow next season. 

Currently the FIS minimum radii for super G is 35m no?  Are they still holding on to the 205 minimum lenght?

Can you get pics? the RS Super may have been a combi/2-event ski also. Remember skis of this vintage were aimed at the race crowd and an Super-G was just coming on as a discipline and athletes skied DH boards or long GS depending on course set in a lot of cases.

 

You may qualify for FIS regressive rules as far a sidecut radius goes but FIS minimum length for men is 195+/-.

Mens SG is 45m and 210cm length  (2013-14)

@ Rossi Smash; Cheers for that.

 

@ Waxman: have a look at Rossi's stash. It is the bright green one in the middle.

The 210 RS was a great ski and I skied them a lot.  I never skied the super and as I recall, it wasn't a real common ski.  In a 203, you're probably on a chicks ski.

 

Lot's of Volkl's in that era bent.

tough call, the super-g's i had had a low profile tip not the upright spear one like that.

at the time i was tuning for one of the biggest Volkl dealers in Canada and a bunch of provincial/national level athlete got there stuff through us
