The Volkl Flair 81 is an awesome ride for expert skiing women who are demanding power and precision out of their carving ski. Volkl's 3D Ridge Technology has a highly maneuverable and powerful feeling by having a thin construction over the sidewalls of the ski, and a thicker construction in the center of the ski that lowers the amount of inertia it takes to steer the ski. 3D Ride Technology also creates very precise pressure distribution on the edges of your skis, making the Flair 81 a favorite for East Coast ripping women. The Tip and Tail Rocker has a highly maneuverable feel to it, while camber underfoot provides a high amount of rebound and grip. The Light Sensor Wood Core has a layer of Carbon to keep the weight down, and a very powerful feel. If you are one of those gals that flies down the mountain, without waiting for the rest of the group, or no one can keep up with you, the Volkl Flair 81 is the ski for you.

Good when it's soft

I just took these out for a demo and while they were great in the corn, they just didn't track so well on the hard pack. Granted, the hard pack was mostly solid ice, but still, I was underwhelmed. I wanted to like them as so many people recommend them, but for me they just didn't do it. I just felt that they didn't really carve well. If you are one of those skiers who smears your turn, this may be for you. I like to set an edge and have it hold, even on ice.

Hey Jess here, and I just got off the Volkl Flair 81's. I would give this ski a 5 out of 5 stars. It's an advanced to expert level ski, and it's a true groomer ripping ski. You could definitely take this thing all-mountain, but it's really made to grip that hard pack and rip through it really, really hard. It likes a lot of power, it likes a lot of speed and it likes to be pointed down hill. So if you're the type of person who likes to kind of ski from one side to the other, this isn't going to quite be the ski for your; but if you like to keep them pointed downhill and just put that pressure on that outside edge, this thing will rip right around and then send you directly into the next turn almost like it's nothing, so for a very heavy ski if you've got a lot of power, they are super, super fun. One of my favorites of the day, again i give it 5 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Julie I just got off the Volkl Flair 81. I give this ski a 5 out of 5 star rating. It's an excellent ski for a little more aggressive lady thats looking for a ski for the front side of the mountain. They do a 3D Ridge Technology to the ski so it's going to give you that torsional strength, it's going to help keep that tip from chattering when you have it at speeds; but it lightens up the ski towards the edges and it allows you to roll that ski over from one turn to the next really efficiently. You can really push the pace with this ski if you want to, and I found that the more aggressive you tend to ski it the more rebound energy you get out of the turn. So all in all, i find it to be a really fun ski for somebody who is looking to carve up the front side of the mountain, both short and long radius turns.

Q: is this ski a bit like the old 5 stars?
Asked : Oct 09, 2016

Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A:This ski is designed for the same type of skier on the same type of terrain (fast, technically proficient, and the groomers) as the older Attiva 5 Star. The new 3D Ridge Technology, addition of carbon, and the rocker profile make it much quicker edge to edge, responsive, and more maneuverable than the 5 Star.

Q: I am 5'7" and 140 lbs. and intermediate/advanced skier. I am trying to decide between the 156 or 163 length. I have Racetigers (155), Atomic skis (157) Atomic skis (158), Yumi skis (161) and another pair of 163 skis. I do not like the lengths 161 and 163. Because the Flair is tip and tail rockers, do I have to go to the 163 length? I love short carving turns and ski quite fast, they say.

Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A:Based on your weight, ability, and the location that you are asking this question I would recommend the 156cm. The rocker in the Flair 81 is not very substantial, so it will not feel too short, and the stiffness of the ski will compensate for any stability you need. This would be a nice ski for your short carving turns on the groomers to add to your large quiver.
