These are Volkl 200cm women' s SG skis, used very lightly over the 2007-2008, and 2008-2009 seasons, and not skied since. Stored the right way, these are perfect. These are World Cup, National Team stock. These skis were never available for sale, to anyone.
Mounted with Marker Piston Plates.
These were meant to be part of the speed ski quiver for a WC athlete for the 2007-8 season. They were prepped, skied in, tested, and picked by her tech. The athlete was then injured for the season, and she never skied them. Her tech held on to them. They were provided to our daughter at the 2008 US Nationals. She switched to Volkl right at that time. They were skied a bit in the summer of 2008, and raced about four times that following season. Then our daughter headed to college...no more speed skiing. I thinkthey were raced once in 2009-2010.
During the time that my daughter had them, these were ONLY tuned by a serious tech, with serious WC experience. He was a tech/coach for our daughter during a PG year; he had worked out the details of my daughter getting them. My daughter was real lucky to get them.
These are the absolute real deal. The Sharpie notes on topsheets show that they were pressed in July, 2007, also show the number of time they were either hotboxed, or hand waxed in the Volkl race room before they were turned loose to the tech. They have set up to race on the WC. The edges are super thin, to be exceptionally fast. I think they may have been ground just twice. In the summer of 2008, my daughter was faster in a time trap on these than on any of her three pairs of DH skis, and she was a top 10 junior DHer. The skis scream.
The topsheets are standard Volkl topsheets showing a radius of 33M+. I presume the radius is greater than that, But I just don't know. I can't represent what rule changes these fit into.
My daughter has hung onto these, as they were "so, so fast, and so, so sweet", but she's moved on to a real career, and she's skiing a ton on a lot of wide waisted skis, softer boots, etc. These are never going to be skied by her, and they're too nice to be used as wall art, although that's an option for them, I guess!
Due to their length, it will cost about $50 to ship them. My daughter's still trying to buy some ski clothes, and equipment as she moves on from the racing days, and I'd like to get her enough from these to get a nice pair of Hestra Mittens!
$175 shipped. Pick up North of Boston for $125.
PM me with questions. I can fill you in a bit more on who they came from, who did the work on them, etc. Just do not want to get into that on a public forum.
