VOLKL ONE? Input // Mount Options

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Does anyone ride Volkl One's? If so where is a good mounting position for all mountain jibbing? Traditional mount measures 9.5cm from Center, Freestyle Mount is +5 from traditional mount or 4.5cm back from center. The farthest back I've skied from center is 2.5cm (SFB's in a 184cm length, the ONES are 176cm length). I'm not sure where the Volkl One skis best but I'm just weary because I don't know the feeling of a ski mounted that far back. I do ski very forward if that helps. Most of my previous skis have been center mounted but these were park orientated skis. HOW DO THE SKIS SKI?

 

Any input would greatly be appreciated!

Love my Volkl One's mounted on the "traditional line" 

or 0 spot their stored now so I cannot check what its called.

If I had a choice to do over I would go +1

Have you checked online to see where others have got them mounted

Threw some reviews.

Here is a movie look to see where the Pros have them positioned.

Dont forget this is a soft snow ski 

Does ok on groomers but excels is soft powder.

Thanks, I'm unable to see where the pros mounted them, although from what I could see they definitely did not mount them at traditional. The traditional mount is 10cm from center. I just want some input on where these ski best regarding mount point? I was think +3,+4 or +5, I really don't know. If it helps I'm 5'7" 140lbs and like to jib all over the mountain.

Hi coasthafron, 

 

You might post the same question on Pugski.com — there's a user there (Josh), who used to own that ski. I think he'll have an opinion worth listening to (Level 3, does a lot of b/c on Mount Mansfield).

I can't speak specifically for "all mountain jibbing," by which I assume you mean bouncing off of natural terrain features, but for general all-mountain skiing, there was a recent thread about Volkl One mount points -- see my response here:

Thanks for the response. Being 5'7" 140lbs do you think a 176cm ski will be too small for the North East. I have fun on my 184 SFB's which are actually 181's tip to tail.

I'm nearly the same size as you — 5'7", 150# — and the 176 cm size is perfect for me.  It's not a directional comp-type ski but, within its category, I think it has a solid feel.  But if you're used to a 184 SFB, it's possible you might prefer the 186 One.  Only way to know for sure is to demo.  I'll add that, based on Jonathan Ellsworth's comments on Blister Gear about the One vs. the SFB, I gather the One feels like more ski.  If you can't demo, you might want to email them to ask for a length recommendation.
