Volkl 90Eight Womens 2018 | SKI REVIEW

The Volkl 90Eight Womens is back for 2018 with a few upgrades that make it a benchmark all-mountain ski for women who want to send it across the whole mountain. Touring, powder lines, tree skiing, piste bashing, the 90Eight W takes it all in its stride with the lightness of a bag of feathers and the stability of well-built mountain refuge. This year, the 90Eight W comes with Volkl’s game changing 3D.Glass technology, which is a layer of multiple, folded fibreglass layers running horizontally beneath the middle of the ski, as well as vertically up the sidewalls. This results in a multitude of advantages, including increased edge to edge rebound during turns, increased liveliness and agility, as well as improved edge grip in icy conditions and improved power transmission through the edges of the ski. For bonus points, it also means the 90Eight doesn’t rely on metal reinforcements, which keeps weight to a minimum. Well-loved features include carbon reinforcements to compliment the fibreglass and add a little bit more springiness when coupled with Volkl’s (also game changing) 3D.Ridge technology. This is the noticeably thicker section running down the length of the ski which cuts out loads of weight without sacrificing any stability or toughness. Not to mention the 98mm waist, which provides the perfect middle ground for on-piste performance and off-piste floatation. Whether you’re an intermediate skier looking to expand your horizons or an expert who wants one ski that does everything, the 90Eight will see you cruising your first resort powder runs through to hiking lines away from the crowds.

We are now out of stock of the 2018 version of this ski, but you can check the new 2019 Volkl 90Eight Womens ski here!
