Hi, this is Emily. I just got off of the Volkl Chiara. I give this ski a 5 out of 5 rating for an intermediate to advanced, women's skier who likes to stay a lot on the front side. It was very, very fun to ski, very predictable, and the ski that gives you a lot of confidence too. Held a great edge, but also made a really quick, short, tight turn. So, I give this a 5 out of 5 rating for an intermediate to advanced, women's skier.

Hi, I'm Julie. I just got off the Volkl Chiara, part of their Essenza series. I give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars. I thought this was a great ski for an intermediate to advanced-intermediate lady. It's really nice and lightweight so, it's great to make slow, skidded turns, and then when you really want to open it up to speed as you approach that advanced level, it really comes alive and starts to ski really nice and smooth. It's a little bit of energy out of the end of the turn.

Hey, Jess here. I just got off the Volkl Chiara. I would give this ski a 4 out of 5 stars. It's meant for an advanced-intermediate to advanced skier. What's great about these skis are that when they're on edge, they hold very well, they're very steady, you don't have to get them up to high speeds for that. and you don't even have to lean over that far. The only thing I didn't like about them was that the rebound energy was a little bit lacking, you really had to initiate every turn to to turn, it doesn't just kind of slide over super easy. So, if you're looking for a ski that will do well on all mountain, and you're trying to progress your riding, this is the ski for you.

Hi, I'm Beth and this is the Volkl Chiara. I gave it a 3 out of 5 stars, not because it didn't stand up to its advanced-intermediate or advanced skier, all mountain reputation or listing, but because even though you can hold an edge really well, it was easy edge to edge, it wasn't terribly snappy, and didn't want to roll over very quickly, and it's pretty stiff in the tail. So, a little bit more of an unforgiving ski, even though very stable, very strong ski, can handle any radius of turn, just a little bit harder to maneuver around. So 3 out of 5 stars.
