The Volkl 90Eight is a great ski for strong intermediates to expert skiers looking for a lightweight and versatile ski. Volkl's 3D Ridge Technology creates an ultra-lightweight and responsive feeling by having a thinner construction over the sidewalls and a raised ridge over the center of the ski. 3D Ridge Technology lowers the inertia and allows you to feel highly maneuverable anywhere on the mountain. A Carbon Stringer and Multi-Layer Wood Core adds a very lively feeling to the 90Eight that allows you to snap shorter, tighter turns. A 98mm waist will provide you with the confidence to charge through powder, blow through crud, and tackle any condition you will find on any mountain.

Hi I'm Steve, I just got off the new Volkl 90Eight. I give this ski 4.5 out of 5 stars. Very stable, just like you would expect out of volkl. It's a very strong ski, no chatter, very short firm entry into the turns. Rock solid edge hold, transition from side to side was not super quick, but it was very smooth. Turn shapes are medium to large size turn shapes, and it handled fast speeds very well, virtually no chatter. Great edge hold, just a really rock solid, hard charging ski. Again 4 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Brooks, I just got off the Volkl 90Eight. Great ski, I give it a 4 out of 5 stars. Holds a good edge, pretty stable at high speeds, little harder to control in short quick turns. Holds a great edge, take it anywhere - good ski. 4 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Volkl 90 Eight. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. I find it's a great ski for that strong intermediate up to expert skier, that wants a ski that will spend most of its time on the groomed trails but it can easily handle bumps, crud, trees, powder. It's very, very maneuverable there is no metal in this ski so it has a good firm, flex to it but its not over demanding or powerful. Volkl's 3D Ridge Technology makes it extremely lightweight. Easy to maneuver in tight trees and it really just cuts through the snow. 4 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Thom and I just got off the Volkl 90Eight. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. Real cool ski from Volkl here, full wood core. At this kind of waist width, it's a very light very easy skiing ski. An advanced-intermediate who is looking to explore a little bit more of the mountain, all the way up through an expert level skier who wants that lightweight wood core feel in a ski, is going to be very much at home here. The thing initiates a turn really, really well, holds all the way through. It lacks a little bit of pop at the finish, but for a lighter-weight guy it's going to probably be a little bit springier. But just again, an all-around smooth, stable predictable ski. 4 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Steve and I just got off the Volkl 90Eight. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. Super forgiving ski, very flexible, really easy to maneuver and handles speed really well. It gets a little chattery in the crud, but handles strong wide turns and can take a lot of pressure. Good for an intermediate to an advanced skier, even an expert skier will enjoy this; especially if you're looking to make some tighter turns and get off trail a little bit, but really excels on the groomed runs and a lot of fun to ski. 4 out of 5 stars.

Q: Adam I'm an aggressive fast skier on groomers with a racing background but now find myself going into the trees and powder where I'm not strong. I have Demod the 90eight and mantra on a groomer day and loved the, both. I know the 98 is much lighter but with being able to try both on a soft day, which would you suggest? Any other feedback between the two?

A:The Mantra is going to feel like a super-sized race ski to get you through any condition on the mountain. If you felt like you were having difficulty in the trees and powder, a slightly softer, more forgiving ski like the 90Eight would be beneficial for you. The more forgiving ski would require less energy or technique to make it do what you want it to do.

Q: Concerned about the stiffness (or lack thereof) of the 90eight. I'm 5'11" 225, strong intermediate skier. Ski mostly on piste but like to off occasionally. Like the combination of the width and weight of this ski, just curious if at 225 lbs, it's not stiff enough for me? Thinking about the 177cm, The Kendo is stiffer, but more narrow as well (and more expensive). Thanks for the feedback.

A:Based on your weight and ability I would recommend the 184cm 90Eight for you. Just because the ski does not have metal does not mean that it is very ridgid, it is plenty stiff for you.
