Volkl query..

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What does HANDGEFERTIGTE RENNVERSION mean?I guessed at hand made version..and seems to be so with the translation.
Just a little query..I have had Volkl P9's and they did NOT say this..come to think of it..I have had other Volkls that did not say this.
I came upon a set of later Salomons that I wanted/needed and they were attached to these Volkl P9's.I had to buy the skis too..(so what they were dirt cheap)..BUT I happenned to notice this "hand made" notation..and got thinking..(ALWAYS! dangerous)were there different versions.. or perhaps a change during..(or in?) model year..or maybe at times they just noted that these were handmade..

Idno..just curious..Thanks!/Arnold

I believe it is "HANDCRAFTED RACE VERSION" or"HANDMADE RACE MODEL"

My old P9 RS & P10 RS Super said it!

It means "Hand-Made Running Version".

"Renn" can be translated to "running" but in this case it means racing.

I thought it might be something like that.

Danke.

From someone with only a microscopic knowledge of German:

I thought "Renn" meant "running", not "racing" (= "laufen"). If what you say is true, then my old Renntigers were even faster than I remember . What's behind my question is that I always thought "Renntiger" meant "running tiger", and thought that was a pretty stilted & almost Chinese-sounding name to give to a ski model.

Also, A-man, are you smoothing the translation of Gefertige (= "manufactured") to "crafted"
