FS: 2015 VOLKL RACETIGER GS SPEEDWALL UVO (175 CM) +MARKER RMOTION 16.0 D RACE

Bought these because I've heard so many good things about these skis and I had to try them even if I knew there was a chance I would find them too short since I always prefer skis over 180 cm... 

You can be sure that if I have an opportunity on a 180 cm, I will take them! These skis have a similar flex to the Stockli Laser SX , meaning that they still have a stiff tail but a surprising smoother tip and longer subtle tip rocker that you would usually see in detuned GS  and with big torsionnal rigidity...That means that the skis can hold an edge really nicely during a bear league event but you will still have fun with them in any other conditions since it is much more versatile than other detuned GS...even in softer snow since they have a softer flex (for a gs detuned)... I skied them in variable conditions ( from icy to golf balls 3d snow), they could be a very nice daily driver or carver... They are very smooth to ski in any speed...

 

If I had to compare them to other skis: I could say that they are like the logic high end, high performance continuation of the RTM skis: nicer snow feel, bigger edge grip, smoother when carving meaning that everything comes together smoothly...

I could also compare them to Speed Course Ti that I used to ski as my daily driver: the Volkl will keep the line better due to a much better edge hold, nicer snow feel here too. I should be able to ski bumps with the volkl like I did with the speed course ti since it has a smoother tip flex but my only concern would be to catch an edge since the Volkl is more rigid torsionnally...

 

Some minor scratches on topsheet that you can barely see, just been to the Shop, edges and base are top notch! Still plenty of edges...Bindings are rock solid! Not a tiny bit of slack!

 

Sidecut: 98-70-116

Radius: 17.9m

DIN: 6-16

 

Asking 495$

Hi Mogsie
you always have the best equipment and I'm just a little tight with my upcoming trip to Stowe. If they don't move you can be sure I will be after them.

When are you planning to go to Stowe?

If these were 180CM you would have my money already. :)

Anyone who loves carving and rides a 168 to 175cm ski needs to grab these ASAP.

Yup! Owned a pair...Liked it a lot but I always thought that they lacked some edge hold on icy spots...I owned the 176 and it was really nice most of the time but I think I may have prefer the 184 on icier conditions... Planning of trying a 184 just for the heck of it!
