Volkl Revolt 95 Skis 2021
Although designed with jibbing in mind, Ahmet Dadali didn’t ignore versatility when dreaming this ski up. A non-symmetrical twin may buck the trend of most park models but it makes total sense, as riding switch requires different technique to going forwards. Specific tip and tail butter zones add extra style to tricks; a 95mm waist means you can easily spend the day doing powder runs when it’s dumping. Carbon stringers boost pop; the Multi Layer Woodcore increases strength.Terrain Type & Ability LevelTerrain Type The shape and construction work equally well as an all mountain jibber or an urban ski designed to press and butter. It hasn’t got the stiffness for the biggest boost, but it does have a flex that allows you to add extra style and land comfortably. Combined with its rocker and width, this makes it a super playfull all mountain ski too.Skier TypeFreestyle skiers who take their skiing out of the park for as much time as they spend in there.OverviewShape95mm in the waist works equally well in the park, on the piste and around the mountain; the 21.3m radius (173cm) helps create a stable ride. The contact points are closer to the tip and tail than the 104 or 121, making it feel more positive in and out of the turn – rocker adds manoeuvrability to make sure it isn’t over precise.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 FeatureseB tester’s comments: Dani (Aviemore) Very versatile with nice flex points in the tip and tail for buttering. It’s one of the most complete freestyle skis that provides full-on all terrain performance.Technical SpecificationsSize (cm)Tip Width (mm)Waist Width (mm)Tail Width (mm)Radius (m)Weight (g)1731299511921.319001811299511923.42020General InformationSkier Ability: Intermediate/Advanced/expertTerrain Type: Freestyle Rocker: Tip/Tail RockerRadius: LongBase: SinteredBindings: n/aDIN: n/aConstruction: Full SidewallCore: WoodDemo: YesSizing 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.
