Volkl Code Speedwall S UVO 173

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I have a pair of 2014/2015 Volkl Code Speedwall S with the rMotion 16.0 D Code bindings. I've skied them a few days decided I went too short on the length. $550 plus shipping.

Is it a stiff ski?  How is it on East cost ice?

It's a fairly stiff ski but not race ski stiff. I specifically bought them as a hard snow ski so they do perform pretty well in such conditions.

Sorry to see your mistake.

I followed Volkl's advice and went 10cm extra additionally I set the boot center up 0.5 cm.

 

These are my favorite skis I declare every time I take them out.

 

They are a frontside rocket ship as a Volkl carver would be expected, but they do bend and smear a tight radius low speed turn in loose conditions up to the ankle.  The mildly tapered tail still hooks in deeper or manky crud.

 

The versatility is astonishing, they eat up chicken heads and shrug off rocks or arc SuperG turns with little drama.

I skied them last year in a 173 and like them but I prefer my 184 mantras most days. I'll probably get a pair of 180 Codes s or 178 code L next season..

I think those are the Code Speedwall L.  I believe the S is the Blue colored, shorter turn radius model.

There's one shallow scratch in the base of one ski that would go away with a stone grind. Other than that they are in excellent condition. There are more pictures here http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=201328002245

Buttinski....any comparison to the now ancient red Volkl 5_Star?...particularly in its burliness...+/- ?

 

thanks......

I did have a pair of the Supersport Superspeed a long time ago,  They had the full piston damper and weighed a ton.  They were full camber so suffered in the off piste.  They were my babies I took out on groomer only days.

 

I imagine the 5 star would be a bit less burley but still not as versatile as the new Code.

 

The Code is thought of as the successor to the AC-whatever, only it is friendlied up to a playful level while retaining the roots of a Volkl Carver. 

 

Bottom line, I would have to say the Code is burlier than the 5 star.

I was actually much much happier with the size after a quick tune up. the factory tune was complete garbage. The 173 worked great for me on my little Midwestern home ski hill.

As far as a comparison to older carving skis....I use to ski the 6 star in a 167 and it was an awesome ski for the day but the codes are light years ahead and way more forgiving.the RTM skis would be the successor to AC series.
