Volkl Revolt 104 Skis 2021
The Revolt 104 is Volkl’s latest offering to come from the combined brilliance of their head engineer and the freestyle pro team. The final result is after hours, days and weeks of co-operation, testing, feedback and changes: a freestyle ski for everyday use whether jibbing or in the backcountry. Tip and tail rocker ensure great handling in any terrain; the 3D Radius Sidecut boosts stability in any condition. The Multi Layer Woodcore is the heart, providing the right flex and power; full sidewalls deliver the precision. To quote Paddy Graham ‘simply a whole lot of fun, no matter where it is used’.Terrain Type & Ability LevelTerrain Type Park, general jibbing, backcountry, pistes, freeriding, the 104 will do it all. This is the new breed of freestyle ski, capable anywhere and not bothered by category definitions.Skier TypeAdvanced and expert skiers wanting a freestyle ski that to ride anywhere. In reality ability is less of factor, it’s more about mindset and wanting the looser feel of a freestyle ski to use everyday on the slopes, in the park or backcountry.OverviewShape104mm underfoot is the all condition freestyle sweetspot, big enough to float and feel stable, not so wide it becomes heavy and cumbersome. The long nose and tail create gradual transitions to the contact points and combine with the tip and tail rocker to make it easier to manoeuvre as wells as improving the handling in any kind of snow.RockerTip and Tail Rocker uses camber underfoot with rocker at tip and tail. The camber provides the grip and the pop for jumping, the rocker aids turn initiation and release as well as butters and presses.CoreThe Multi Layer Woodcore uses a combination of beech and poplar, resulting in a poppy and extremely durable core composed of hard wood in the binding area and lighter wood around.ConstructionFull sidewall produces direct and strong power transmission for the best control.Key Features3D Radius SidecutThe 3D Radius Sidecut ensures a range of turn size feel natural. A long radius on the tip and tail is combined with a tighter radius in the centre. The longer radii aid bigger turns and higher speeds with easy steering, less tip disruption and smoother turn exits. The shorter radius in the centre makes it easier to execute short turns and improves agility.EB tester’s comments: Luke (Buying Team) Designed for all-mountain freestyle, it actually makes a great powder ski. easier to turn than 121 version, it still provides plenty of float; on piste they felt surprisingly agile for a +100mm ski.Technical SpecificationsSize (cm)Tip Width (mm)Waist Width (mm)Tail Width (mm)Radius (m)Weight (g)18013210412220.2200018813210412222.52080General InformationSkier Ability: Advanced/expertTerrain Type: Freestyle Rocker: Tip/Tail RockerRadius: LongBase: SinteredBindings: n/aDIN: n/aConstruction: Full SidewallCore: WoodDemo: NoSizing Description: eye level for the maximum ease of spinning and rail tricks, but you need to go bigger for extra stability or speed and for all mountain versatility, especially important on the wider models that are designed to spend more time away from the park.
