    Cage Match Comparison 2020 Völkl Kendo 88 vs 2020 Nordica Enforcer 88

    Two well-established names in Völkl and Nordica are attacking the upper 80-90mm segment in two different ways, but with model names that have been around for a while. The Kendo 88 has an all-new shape, and the Enforcer 88 is steamrolling into a whole new segment for itself. It is no secret that...

    What comes after Volkl RTM 84?

    Hi everyone, I would like to ask the community's advice on ski choice. I'm a level 7, perhaps 8 on good days (per the most recent instructors I trusted) 44 yo skier, looking to continue progressing and exploring terrain. I live on the East Coast, but try to take 1-2 trips a year to big...

    Cage Match Comparison Time Machine Cage Match: The Völkl Mantra

    Which one? That is the question I have to ask whenever someone inquires about a Mantra, the new M5 in particular. "I owned" "My buddy owned" "I read about" ... the Mantra. I always have to answer, "Which one?" The reply is usually, “What do you mean, 'Which one?'" There have been several...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Rossignol Experience 94 Ti and 2019 Völkl Mantra M5 vs The World

    After we requested ideas for Cage Matches, many asked us to compare this against the new Rossignol Experience 94 Ti or that against the new Völkl Mantra M5. So we decided that instead of doing a bunch of one-to-one comparisons, the Rossi and Völkl should take on the world. But first, go back and...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Völkl Secret vs 2019 Blizzard Black Pearl 88

    This comparison is one that will likely be brought up in ski shops around the world: the brand-new Secret from Völkl and Blizzard's longtime favorite, the Black Pearl 88. The skis are 4 mm apart in waist width with a 2m difference in turn radius, yet they will appeal to similar women. The Völkl...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Rossignol Experience 94 Ti vs 2019 Völkl Mantra M5

    This is the Cage Match that I think will be most requested for this coming season because it involves two skis that have been completely reinvented for 2018-19. The only thing that carries over from their previous incarnations is their names. This is going to be the toughest of the matches for...

    Volkl Supersport 5 Star

    Hi, I have a pair of Volkl Supersport 5 Star that I haven't used in a long time. How does that ski compare to newer allround skis these days? Is it worth getting these Volk skis tuned or should I simply buy/rent a new pair of skis?

    Need a big bad long ski

    Want something for powder. Currently have nordica enforcer 93s in 193cm as my all mountain/powder ski. Want something wider for deeper days. 193cm is minimum length, I would consider a 200cm ski if anyone made them. I like the enforcer 93, could be a bit stiffer and the 193 length is good. 21+...

    Sponsored 2019 Volkl M5 Mantra Review

    That's right! A whole new Mantra is here and it brings along some significant changes from the previous version. A brand new construction concept, a new shape, a bigger sweet spot and more approachable ski, but it still has that Mantra-like feel that has made it such a popular ski in the first...

    Ski Brand Speed....

    Granted my modern World Cup ski experience is filtered through the overlords of the Olympic Channel but on more than one occasion I've heard the expert, i.e. Bode Miller refer to a skier's equipment issues in such a way you can tell it's more than just the tuning or boot fit... I get the...
