My first post!
Anyway I saw a pair of Volkl Golden Eagle skis in the shop but have not been able to find any information on them on the web, not even on Volkl's website, anyone ski on these? What are they like?
Google it in .... Golden Eagle Volant .... or Volkl
The only thing that came up is one pic from a rental service in Switzerland. It shows what appears to be a Volant ski in gold but the text does not match.
PM our own VA .... aka... Volant Addict .... with the ski having what appears to be an eagle .. and the usually stainless with a golden hue, I'd say mystery solved.
It's a Volant ............ I think ...
Yes - I have a pair - have skied on them for years - delightful !
They are destined now for my daughters to share (here in Australia).
These skis are engineered to have a left and right ski depending on the snow conditions - I haven't been able to figure out how they achieved that - (I don't think it is just in the tuning of the edges).
The dictum is "when there is snow about the eagles look out".
The corollary requires the skis to be swapped when conditions are icy / steep and serious athletic performance is required .
If anyone can learn the engineering principles would appreciate an update.
Sorry t took four years to stumble over your post.
