This zippy ski is all about turn style – it goes wide and fast on groomers. Volkl’s Flair 79 has a dual woodcore and a steel layer above it to tune the ride. The setup gives you lots of pop with stability from the sandwich construction and the dampening effect of a layer of steel. Weight-optimized Wideride XL light bindings keep you locked in so you can play all day.
- Dual Woodcore XL balances energy and weight for a very responsive feel.
- 3D.Ridge construction removes some material near the ski's edges to reduce the swing weight.
- A layer of steel improves dampness and torsinal stiffness.
- Sandwich construction results in very durable edges.
- XTD tip and tail rocker helps with turn initiation and release.
- GripWalk-compatible WiderideXL bindings are included.
