Völkl began ski production in the Bavarian town of Straubing, Germany in 1923, making 2012 its 89th anniversary. The company's rich heritage is dotted with a tradition of exciting innovations in ski technology, like the recently-introduced Extended Low Profile (ELP) rocker design, the first to combine added finesse and maneuverability in deep snow with all-mountain versatility, to make the days in between storms the best they can be. The company's 2012/2013 freeskiing lineup spans the Big Mountain, All Mountain, and Park and Pipe segments for both men and women.

The Nunataq features a shape of 139-107-123, for the AT skier seeking a rockered touring ski that is wide enough to take on deep powder descents. Thanks to Völkl's ELP rocker design, the Nunataq is super manueverable in deep snow, yet very smooth and precise on hard snow.


The Kuro is Völkl’s widest ski, with a shape of 164-132-139, combined with Völkl’s exclusive Extended Low Profile (ELP) rocker technology. New for 2012/13 is the addition of titanal. Titanal enhances ski stability and makes the Kuro ideal for charging through any snow conditon.


One of the most award-winning skis the Gotama features Völkl’s exclusive Extended Low Profile (ELP) full rocker technology and a new, rounded top edge for even better manueverability in deep snow. For good skiers who want a playful big mountain twin tip ski that you can also ski all around the mountain as an every day ski.


The Katana features a top-end construction with its full Sensorwood core and two sheets of titanium. Meticulously matched with Völkl's Extended Low Profile (ELP) rocker, the Katana's 111mm waist gives you float, while the beefy construction allows great handling on harder snow. For good skiers who want a big mountain powder ski that can handle the groomed on occasion.
