Light and lively but with loads of carving power, the Volkl Allura Women's Ski makes the groomers your personal playground. It features most of the usual tricks, like edgy camber underfoot, a smooth, easy turning rocker in the tip, and a light steel laminate for stability at speed, but the Allura also has a whole lot of hidden awesomeness, starting with the xtraLIGHT XTD wood core. Essentially, sections of wood have been milled out from the solid core, creating hollow channels that reduce the weight of the ski without affecting stiffness, strength, or performance. The core has also been extended upward over the edges, providing an extra dose of lateral stiffness for increased edge hold and energy transfer when you roll over into a turn. Volkl also made the Allura with Double Grip XTD construction, which helps channel energy into your edges without adding unnecessary stiffness to the ski to keep it fun, snappy, and easy on the knees. Volkl also designed the Allura with its Bio Logic shape, which offers a whole host of benefits, starting with a flex that's tailored to match the sidecut, giving you more effective edge with less effort. The tail is also narrower than the tip for easier turn finishing, and the Bio Logic stance is virtually flat, not ramped forward, which takes pressure off your quads and distributes it into your hamstrings and glutes for less fatigue and better knee support. The Allura also comes equipped with the iPT eMotion 11. 0 TC Binding, so you'll be ready to ride as soon as your skis arrive. With a DIN range from 3 11 and a women specific heelpiece, you'll be psyched to cruise the groomers all winter long.
