Volkl Yumi 84 Women’s Skis 2021
Volkl’s updated Yumi takes many elements of the Secret and Kenja models but dials them back to make it a less demanding, more playful all mountain option than its bigger sisters. At 84mm underfoot it’s ideal for skiing piste and exploring down the sides and further away from groomers. A Multilayer Woodcore and full sidewalls ensure it‘s precise, and it now uses a 3D Radius Sidecut for unflappable handling whatever the conditions. It’s fun and lively when you push it, has the stability for skiing mixed conditions and the dimensions that keep it nimble and responsive. It’s the perfect choice for intermediate and advanced skiers who don’t want the stiffest or widest skis.Terrain Type & Ability LevelTerrain Type Lots of time playing around on the pistes and off the sides, plus the occasional trip a bit further through trees or looking for adventure away from the groomed snow. With it’s easy handling and snappy response, it’s the ideal choice to boost confidence whether skiing tighter areas, choppy snow or boot deep powder.Skier TypeAll mountain skiers looking for playfulness over power. It could be that they’re less experienced or maybe they’re lighter and don’t want a ski that would be too stiff. It’ll suit intermediates buying their first proper all mountain ski or more technical skiers from the advanced category who aren’t looking for out-and-out power.OverviewShape84mm underfoot suits all mountain ski that is designed to be playful and easy to use, it’s quick edge-to-edge on firmer snow but has enough width for the float and stability to start skiing away from the pistes. The 3D Radius Sidecut produces radii of 19m in the tip, 14m in the centre and 17m at the tail for a 161cm model.RockerTip and Tail Rocker uses camber underfoot for excellent grip and response, with tip and tail rocker to aid turn initiation and release.CoreThe Multi Layer Woodcore uses a combination of beech and poplar, resulting in an extremely durable core composed of hard wood in the binding area and lighter wood around. On top of this there is a Titanal Binding Platform, this is a thin Titanal layer (0.3 mm) under the binding to deliver the necessary strength to the ski. This way the binding screws offer reliable hold even in the toughest conditions.ConstructionDirect and strong power transmission with full length sidewalls.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.Technical SpecificationsSize (cm)Tip Width (mm)Waist Width (mm)Tail Width (mm)Radius (m)Weight (g)1541258410718/13/16*13701611258410719/14/17*1420General InformationSkier Ability: Intermediate/Advanced/expertTerrain Type: All Mountain Rocker: Tip/Tail RockerRadius: ShortBase: SinteredBindings: n/aDIN: n/aConstruction: Full SidewallCore: WoodDemo: NoSizing Description: Nose level to forehead height is ideal, but longer length is important if there is a bigger rocker or you’re spending more time off piste where the extra stability and float a larger size provides will be beneficial.
