Volkl Nerds.....Allstar v Superspeed???

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What is the difference?

Superspeed...think GS ski - high speed cruiser, handles speed well. Allstar - think more versatile. It's wider platform and more shapely figure make it a ton of fun in a ton of conditions. Skied it last spring in crud bumps and on a GS course...loved it in both.

Volkl Nerd...Is there such a thing? Superspeed: SuperFast, stable, powerful and a real bomber. Loves LOOONG turns. (No bumps, no trees) Allstar: Fast, stable, powerful and a precise mid-turn shape carving machine. A ski for the whole mountain (so long as it is steep and the snow is not too deep). In either case, if you are on the top of your game, these rides cannot be beat! Kind of like the Explosiv of the groomed world.

Must be a difference in stiffness, because the sidecut is the same, although the turning radius is different (at least acc'dng. to website)....hmmmmm. Now I'm confused.

And I probably should have said Volkl "tech geeks", instaed of nerds, as I own 3 prs. of Volkls.

I think there's an extra sheet of metal in the Superspeed for one.
The Volkl website should give you a run down of the construction differences.

I want a pair of allstars to compliment my superspeeds. But then again, I also want a pair of AC4s or 724Pro's. This could be an expensive winter.

Check out the review of the Allstars at Footloose Sports - they directly compare them to the Superspeed (www.footloosesports.com/reviews) with some good info in there.

The Allstar is much more comparable to what the 6 Star was than what the Superspeed is.

If the website says they have the same dimensions, it's a typo.
