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.

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.
