Return of the Volkl Explosive

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
In surfing a lot of ski news sites and new gear information forums, I see where Volkl is bring back the Explosive Powder ski after a number of years absence. I use to see a lot of the older Explosive Powder skis around a few years ago and would be interested in any thoughts on them or if anyone has skied the new Explosive at any demo's last spring. The new Explosive is on Volkl's german web site but that's about all that I have found about it.

Just out of curiosity, what were ski profile measurements for the Explosives? I would have thought the G4 would have been plenty fat for a powder ski.

Do you have the link to the German site?

Just go to Volkl.com and select German site. If you select USA site, it will just go to last year's skis.

the new Explosiv has a 95 waist, I think, while the G4 is 84

I still ski the old Explosiv and like it very much, but I would hope they would make the newer one a bit more firm so it would handle the groomers (heading back to the lifts) better, ie, without the "floating" feeling on hardpack (sort of like you are skiing on a pair of air hockey pucks). Anybody know what changes have been made?

I went to PeterKeelty.com but did not see the Explosive there. Has anyone seen any more specs on the ski. Sure would like to find out exact dimensions. XX/95?/XX.

Anyone else have any info about the new Explosive ??
